Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One off the Market


    This week, a look at four of our featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Park Slope, Clinton Hill and Flatbush. How did they fare?

    Starting off, a Renaissance Revival brownstone in the Park Slope Historic District has kept many of its original features intact and also has many upgrades. Chief among these was modernizing the configuration of the original two-family by moving the rental to the garden level, expanding bathrooms, and adding a kitchen and deck to the parlor level. This former House of the Day sold in January for $3.37 million, which was $80,000 below the asking price.

    Next, a sleek modern renovation of a brick-fronted house in Clinton Hill retains enough of the old to give it character. A two-family configured as one, 392 Waverly Avenue has an open-plan garden-level kitchen with a dark gray stone wraparound countertop and backsplash and Scandinavian-style minimalist wood cabinets. A wall-to-wall sliding window opens onto a nearly on-grade deck and a spectacularly landscaped rear garden. On the street, a dark painted cornice and brownstone lintels stand out from the red brick facade with its arched windows. This Open House Pick sold in December for $3.37 million, which was $375,000 over the asking price.

    After that, we have a renovated bay-fronted yellow-brick early 20th century single-family row house in Flatbush that is asking almost double the price it sold for three years ago by a family that had owned it since 1963. Back then the listing implied it needed a bit of work, and now everything looks to be in good condition, with beautifully refinished original wood floors and original details like doors and trim with fluting and corner blocks. This former House of the Day sold in December for $900,000, which was $51,100 over the asking price.

    Finally, this one-bedroom in a 1940 co-op in Flatbush close to Brooklyn College is nicely renovated and relatively affordable for the amount of space. While technically not prewar, Apartment 4B at 2601 Glenwood Road features characteristic period elements of prewar apartments such as parquet floors, shelves in a niche, arched doorways and coved ceilings. This former Co-op of the Day is currently off the market.
