Classic Brooklyn Heights Townhouse and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $899,000


    Our open house picks this week offer a broad spectrum, from a bring-your-architect special with a price tag under $1 million to a luxe, updated townhouse that wants over eight times that figure. They’re found in Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene and Bed Stuy.

    First up, a deluxe brick row house on Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights. At 22 feet wide and four stories, this one’s huge, detailed and beautifully restored and updated. There are three working fireplaces, six bedrooms, two family rooms, a living room, two decks, two laundry areas — even two wine refrigerators, including a 200-bottle one in the basement. A lot of lovely spaces, from the marble master bath to the cherry-tree shaded backyard to the kitchen, which among its attributes (hand-blown light fixtures, a four-foot SubZero, dual dishwashers) has a bank of bay windows overlooking the garden.

    The next one’s on Carlton Avenue in Fort Greene; it’s a stately house with a center staircase and some choice details, including crown moldings, wide-plank floors and marble mantels. The layout’s a bit unorthodox: there’s an upper three-bedroom triplex and a lower one-bedroom duplex that split the parlor floor. There’s a second floor deck for the duplex, from which you can access the deep, brick-patio’d yard. What’s shown looks to be in pretty good shape, but the listing indicates renovation is needed.

    In Bed Stuy, we find a four-story brownstone on Jefferson Avenue. This one was gut renovated at some point, with no original detail spared, and some uninspiring finishes installed. Perhaps it’s time for another full-on renovation — or, this could serve as an investment property. There’s no floor plan and very little info, so the layout is uncertain: most likely it’s got two apartments over a lower duplex.

    The last one is not far off on Malcolm X Boulevard, once again in Bed Stuy. It’s a two-story, two-family brick number with upper and lower front porches. The two interior photos show only the front hallway, which it’s fair to say has not been impeccably maintained. Going by that, it doesn’t seem a leap to assume this one’s going to need extensive work. The listing claims “lots of original detail,” however.
