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


    This week, our look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Park Slope and Crown Heights. How did they fare?

    We begin this week with a five-story, single-family mid-19th century Italianate brownstone in Brooklyn Heights that’s quite a catch for a buyer keen on original notes and a prime location. Located at 47a Willow Street, it has many of its original details — all, according to the listing — including its historic configuration. This former House of the Day sold in March for $2.53 million, which was $970,000 below the asking price.

    After that, in the Dumbo Historic District, there’s a spacious loft in a prime location. Located at 50 Bridge Street, in a circa 1894-1895 factory building designed by William Tubby, it has 13-foot-high ceilings and a large mezzanine. The thoroughly modern unit has a flexible layout and a lot of space, but the openness means it only works for a single tenant or a couple. There are no original interior details. This former Condo of the Day is currently off the market.

    Then, we have a sprawling Gilded Age limestone townhouse in the Park Slope Historic District that’s loaded with original detail. Located at 108 8th Avenue, it was built in 1900 along with its neighbor by architect Thomas Bennett. And if it’s grandeur and opulence you’re after, it will be hard to find a place more stunning. There’s hardly a room pictured in this five-story, single-family home without lavish original details. This former House of the Day is still available for $7,810,800, which is $1 million below the initial ask.

    To wrap up this week, there’s a three-story, two-family home in Crown Heights that’s currently configured as a lower duplex beneath a four-bedroom top-floor rental. There are crown moldings, stained glass windows, millwork surrounds, baseboards, an original carved newel post and a decorative mantel in the way of historic notes, but the home needs some work. The backyard has a large central garden pit and beat up chain link perimeter fencing. This former Open House Pick sold in February for $1.48 million, which is $195,000 below the asking price.
