Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Still Available


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Bushwick, Fort Greene, Flatbush and Crown Heights. How did they fare?

    First, this two-family attached brick townhouse in Bushwick’s Rheingold Gardens that has mansard roofs and dormers on the second floor suggestive of early Dutch settlement, before mid-19th-century German immigrants turned the area into the center of Brooklyn’s Brewers’ Row. Inside, we see an open living room and kitchen with an island, subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances with tall sloping ceilings. There’s a walk-in closet in the generous master bedroom, and white-tiled bathroom. This former House of the Day sold in April for $1.265 million, which was $110,000 below the asking price.

    Next, we have a fairly straightforward condo in a 74-unit residential building in Fort Greene that opened in 2009. This two-bedroom, two-bath modern unit has the advantage of a juliet balcony outside the combined living-dining room and open kitchen, and ample windows in every room except the second bathroom. Notably, it comes with a deeded parking space. This former Condo of the Day sold in July for the asking price of $1.195 million.

    After this, a single-family Edwardian in the West Midwood micro-neighborhood of Flatbush. The home combines original details with a sprinkling of updates, some more recent than others. It appears to be in move-in condition but could probably use tweaks along the lines of updating dated cabinet hardware and bathrooms and restoring painted floors upstairs. This former House of the Day is still available at the reduced price of $1.295 million.

    Finally, we have this unusual townhouse in Crown Heights that has an unforgettable eclectic facade with a graphic leafy keystone that seems to bridge the Victorian and the modern. Designed circa 1899 by architect Frederick L. Hine, the house also has the distinction of having been developed by a woman, Carrie Hine, Frederick’s wife, who “handled the business end of the business,” in the words of Brownstoner’s Suzanne Spellen. Although set up as a three-family, it’s a legal two and needs work, according to the listing. Nonetheless, crown moldings, pocket doors, and an original mantel with garlands and columns survive. This former Open House Pick sold in April for $1.3 million, which was $100,000 over the asking price.
