Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One off the Market and One Still Available


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Bed Stuy, Prospect Heights, Park Slope and Greenpoint. How did they fare?

    To begin this week, we have this stunning, exquisitely restored townhouse in Bed Stuy. Altogether there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms; the house is configured as a garden rental with a triplex above. The restoration takes pains to refinish the oak with a lighter color, offering a contemporary update to the craftsmanship of another time. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    After that, we have this two-bedroom garden duplex in Prospect Heights that has a stone mantel and a working fireplace in the living room and crown molding, central air, a nice outdoor space and a carpeted cellar with half-bath set up as a rec room. Two bedrooms in the back face the garden, one with a wall of closets fitted into its 28-foot length, the other outfitted with a door out to a slate patio and garden landscaped with pines. This former Condo of the Day sold in July for $1.7 million, which was $99,000 below the original asking price.

    Then, we have a grand townhouse with all the trimmings in Park Slope. It’s configured as a triplex over a garden rental, and special features include an unusually large four-room garden floor rental and an enormous parlor-floor kitchen with a skylight and bay window in an extension. This former House of the Day sold in June for $4.55 million, which was $745,000 below the asking price.

    And, to tie a bow on the week, we have a wood-frame in Greenpoint, an Italianate with some Neo-Grec flavor. The petite two-family likely dates from the 1870s and has plenty of original details but an awkwardly chopped up floor plan, vinyl siding and a post 1940s ye olde Colonial front door. While it too appears to be in move-in condition, a little vision and some cash could help it shine. This former Open House Pick is still available at the reduced price of $1.85 million.
