Four Townhouses to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.495 Million


    We’ve got a grab bag for you on the open house front this weekend, with houses of brick, brownstone, limestone and vinyl that span different periods and styles. One’s gut renovated, the others all look ready for inhabitation, but are possible candidates for some upgrading. They’re found in Brooklyn Heights, Bed Stuy, Bay Ridge and Windsor Terrace.

    First up, a charming 19th-century brick townhouse on a lovely cobblestoned block of Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights.  It’s on the diminutive side, at 17 feet wide and 35 feet deep, configured as an upper three-bedroom triplex over a garden rental. A semi-detached four-story with a center staircase, it’s got the original wide plank floors and a pair of working fireplaces. There’s a front garden and a nice rear garden with bluestone-lined planting beds and a big spreading tree. Condition looks good, though some updating may be in order.

    The next one’s a brownstone with a fetching facade on Hancock Street in Bed Stuy. This one’s gut renovated (i.e. a flip), but retains some original details, including several mantels and a striking arched stained glass window on the parlor floor (which matches the sweet arched entrance doors). It’s got a garden rental with two small bedrooms and an upper triplex. The triplex could be counted as a four-bedroom, or a three with a full-floor master suite, which includes a walk-in closet. There are new herringbone floors, central air, a washer and dryer, a parlor-floor deck, and a kitchen with Bertazzoni appliances and Calacatta marble countertops, island and backsplash.

    Out to Bay Ridge for the next one, an extra-deep limestone townhouse on Bay Ridge Parkway, on the architecturally distinctive Doctor’s Row. This one’s a circa-1900 single-family with four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and some interesting original details, including a large handcrafted midcentury modern brick fireplace, elaborate floor inlays, and a dining room with mahogany paneling, ceiling accents, original wood and tile mantel, and leaded glass cabinetry. Condition looks good, though it could probably use some updating. The windowed basement is finished and has a private entrance, a bathroom and a kitchenette, and is legally permitted for use as a doctor’s office. There’s central air and a washer and dryer.

    Last stop is Windsor Terrace, where we find a vinyl-sided row house on Vanderbilt Street. It’s a two-story one-family, with a straightforward layout: three bedrooms plus an office above, living room/dining room/kitchen below. There’s a full bathroom on the bedroom floor plus a toilet in the basement, though the listing notes that a closet on the lower floor could be turned into a half bath. Like the others, condition looks good, though the kitchen could use an upgrade. There’s a built-in home theater audio system in the living room, a video security system, red oak floors, “excellent mechanicals” and a large lawn in the back, with a big tree and a distinctive — or should we say inexplicable? — row of globe-topped brick posts.
