Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Three Homes Sold


    This week, we’re looking back to chilly March and checking out how four of our featured listings fared on the market.

    First up is a charmer of a single-family house on a distinctive block. At 14 Martense Court in Flatbush, it’s one of 14 semi-detached brick homes on the cul de sac, which were built in one fell swoop in 1915 and 1916. They’re Colonial Revival houses with Flemish rooflines, front patios and Craftsman details within, they were written up as Buildings of the Day a few years back. This House of the Day sold in May for $1.48 million, $19,000 below ask.

    Next up is a transitional FederalGreek Revival-style Brooklyn Heights row house — circa 1845 according to the listing — with original details and acres of space. At 35 Sidney Place, it’s 23 feet wide and five stories high, on a lot that runs 135 feet deep. Historic details include four mantels and Greek Revival-style door and window casings, as well as original doors and, on the top floor, wide floorboards. This House of the Day is no longer available as of June.

    Also in Brooklyn Heights is an attractive co-op with some Victorian detail, good light and ample space for a family, with three decent sized bedrooms. It’s on the fourth floor of a self-managed five-unit building at 33 Willow Street, between Cranberry and Middagh. The long, narrow living-slash-dining room’s got original tin ceilings and wood floors, with a pair of built-in shelving units and a fireplace with a slate mantel. This Co-op of the Day sold in June for $1.375 million, $75,000 above ask.

    Last up is a circa 1896 Romanesque Revival four-story on St. Marks Avenue in the Crown Heights North Historic District. It’s got a lovely facade with a projecting curved bay and a trio of arched windows, and the interior is pretty distinguished as well, with details including six mantels, wainscoting, pocket doors, crown moldings, plaster detailing and pocket doors. Some floors are original, some have been redone. This Open House Pick sold in May for $2.2 million, $195,000 below ask.
