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


    Another week, another look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, Windsor Terrace and Bed Stuy. How did they fare?

    Starting off, this third-floor walkup in an 1890s building at 437 2nd Street in Park Slope uses clever planning and a light well to fit three bedrooms into an attractive space. The entrance to the unit opens to a living room with hardwood floors, a working brick wood-burning fireplace, and a three-sided bay with pocket wood shutters and fluted trim. This former Co-op of the Day sold in January for $1.525 million, which was $75,000 over ask.

    Next, this circa 1850 Greek Revival in Brooklyn Heights with later Anglo-Italianate exterior updates has been completely renovated with modern amenities while preserving original and later period features. It’s a single-family home in the historic district with impressive original mantels throughout and foliate crown moldings on the parlor level, a large new kitchen, and a winding staircase with an oval leaded-glass skylight at the top. This former House of the Day is still available for $4.85 million, down from an initial ask of $5.25 million.

    In Windsor Terrace, this early 20th century single-family brick Colonial Revival row house has a bracketed cornice, stone lintels with keystones, and a front porch with three columns and dentil trim. Inside it preserves details such as parquet floors, an Arts and Crafts-style stairway, original wainscoting and moldings. This former Open House Pick sold in February for $2.1 million, which was $95,000 below ask.

    Finally, an alluring brownstone in Bed Stuy with a three-sided oriel on the parlor-level topped with cast-iron ornament, incised window and door hoods, a handsome modillioned cornice and original stoop railings is somewhat of a throwback to listings before this most recent boom. This former House of the Day is currently off the market.
