Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One in Contract 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 Lefferts Gardens, Flatbush and Park Slope. How did they fare?

    First, we have a two-family townhouse currently in use as a one-family. This Bed Stuy home was updated by Australian expats and homeowners Jeremy Andrew, better known as the artist Jeremyville, and Megan Mair. When they bought it for $1.5 million in 2013, it was divided into three units, as we detailed in a story about the renovation a few years ago. A former House of the Day, this home entered contract in October.

    As prewar studios go, this next one, a co-op in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, is relatively spacious, with a separate renovated kitchen that has substantial counter space, a proper entrance foyer and a bathroom in good condition. This former Co-op of the Day sold in July for $450,000, which was $3,000 above the initial asking price.

    Then, a standalone house in Flatbush micro-nabe Beverly Square West that has a fairly odd combination of Dutch Colonial gambrel, vinyl siding and what appear to be turrets on the rooftop above a three-sided corner. Inside, the house has notable design features like parquet floors, ornate stained-glass windows, baroque and mahogany mantels and arched doorways. This former House of the Day sold in June for $1.45 million, which was $100,000 below the asking price.

    And finally, an attractively updated three-family brownstone in Park Slope that is set up as a double duplex sandwiched between two floor-through apartments. A spiral staircase in the duplex facilitates privacy between the units. The duplex has white-painted exposed brick and a galley-style kitchen with a geometric patterned tile backsplash, a pass-through to the dining room, reclaimed-wood open shelves and exposed beams. Two sets of French doors open to the rear patio through the dining room. Unusually, the upper floors have internal windows on an air shaft, bringing light and air into the center of the units. This former Open House Pick is still available at a reduced price of $4.25 million.
