Classic Boerum Hill Restored Italianate and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $859K


    It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means this weekend is your last chance to tour open houses before the torpor of the real estate market during the holiday season sets in. Three — in Boerum Hill, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and Cypress Hills — are in move-in condition and one, in Bed Stuy, is a fixer-upper. They range from painstakingly staged to as-is, with asks from $3.4 million to $859,000. All have appealing historic detail.

    First, in Boerum Hill, a classic Italianate four-story, red brick townhouse with mansard roof and dormers is set up as a single-family and features four bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a renovated kitchen that looks onto the garden. The details make it worth a look, including white marble mantels, original pocket doors and shutters, floor-to-ceiling windows and original pine plank flooring.

    Next up, a recently renovated circa 1900 neo-Federal townhouse, also a single-family, has a raised front terrace, red brick facade with bay windows, a mansard roof with dormers, and a sizable terrace in the rear over an extension. The update includes a very white U-shaped kitchen with custom cabinets, Carrara marble countertops, and appliances by Wolf, Liebherr and Bosch, as well as new electric and plumbing and an ultra-efficient hot-water central heat and air system controllable by NEST smart home technology.

    Meanwhile in Bed Stuy, a duplex brownstone in need of tender loving care shows off exquisite cast-iron fireplaces, mantels, original wooden shutters, pocket doors, and skylights. It looks rough, but the woodwork in places is something to see.

    Lastly, check out a classic circa 1900 brick bow front with nice details like diamond-patterned brickwork, bracketed cornices, wrought iron metalwork, and a columned porch in Cypress Hills. It’s a three-story, two-family townhouse with an updated kitchen on the backyard level, three bedrooms on the second story, and an apartment that can be rented out on the top floor.
