Neo-Grec Brownstone in Park Slope and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.228 Million


    Between Easter and Passover, it’s a busy weekend, but the wheels of commerce continue to spin. And as usual, we’ve got four open houses worthy of note, though they’re slanted more heavily toward Saturday than is the norm. All are over the million-dollar mark, have some measure of original detail, and are currently multi-family. In the turnkey department they’re split: two need work, two need nothing except a willing buyer. They’re found in Bed Stuy, Park Slope, and Dyker Heights.

    First up, a Neo-Grec brownstone, built circa 1880, on 9th Street in the Park Slope Historic District. A block and a half from Prospect Park, this one’s a two-family that looks to have been recently renovated and is in top condition. The floors are new, but there’s a decent amount of original detail, including six fireplaces (five operational), moldings, columns and shutters. A four-story, it’s got a four-bedroom triplex over a garden rental, with a finished basement. There’s a large slate deck off the parlor floor, a landscaped yard, updated mechanicals and zoned heat and air conditioning.

    The next one’s another four-story brownstone, on Stuyvesant Avenue in Bed Stuy. It’s a three-family, with a pair of floor-through apartments over a lower duplex. There aren’t a lot of photos for this one, so overall condition is an open question, but what’s shown is in good shape, including a parlor floor with crown and wall moldings, pocket doors, dark wood floors and a brick fireplace. The listing says it was “very well maintained,” and tells us the roof and mechanicals have been updated, but it’s probably safe to assume that at the minimum some upgrading is needed.

    Not so with the next one, a three-story brownstone that’s not far off on Hancock Street. This one’s fully renovated, perhaps newly so. Most of the floors and the upper staircase are new, though at least one original parquet floor remains, and there are five original mantels; the pictured ones are tiled. A legal three-family, it’s set up as a two-family, with a duplex over a garden rental. There’s exposed brick, a small deck off the parlor floor, a spacious kitchen with granite countertops and a backyard with a bluestone patio.

    Last up, a two-family brick house with a barrel front in Dyker Heights, which was built circa 1906 and has been in the same family for the past half-century. The long ownership shows in the retro wood-paneled kitchen, which is calling for an update. Other work is needed, which might well include turning the current two-family into a single residence and opening up the lower floor. Details include parquet floors, moldings and the original staircase and entrance doors; in the rear is a large wooden deck in bad need of painting.
