Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Two Homes Sold


    This week, as Memorial Day approaches, we’re looking back to another holiday week (Thanksgiving to be precise) and checking out how four of our featured listings did on the market six months on.

    First up is a gut renovated 1870s Bed Stuy brownstone that’s not a flip — or doesn’t appear to be at least. If it is, the house — at 231 MacDonough Street, in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District — is a good bit more attractive and thoughtfully done than average. It’s got a modern feel, with an open plan parlor floor, contemporary light fixtures and glass rear wall, but with a few original details blended in, including a marble fireplace mantel. This House of the Day sold in May for $2.45 million, $100,000 above ask.

    Next up, the listing for this house — a landmarked five-story brownstone at 914 President Street in Park Slope — offers only a glimpse of the interior, but it’s a pretty tantalizing glimpse. We’re shown a dining room with a tiled fireplace and a carved mantel, a bank of built-in cabinetry, stained glass window transoms and parquet floors. And there’s a front hallway full of details including an entry bench and mirror, wainscoting and an original banister. This House of the Day is no longer on the market.

    Third, this three-bedroom co-op has a nicely updated kitchen and bathroom and three good-sized bedrooms, with respectable light, decent closet space and some parquet floors. It’s in a prewar building at 2022 Beverley Road, a 12-unit, self-managed building between Ocean Avenue and East 21st Street. This Co-op of the Day is no longer on the market.

    Finally, on Chauncey Street in Bushwick we’ve got a two-family with a flat brick facade. This one’s got an owner’s duplex over a 1.5-bedroom garden apartment. The duplex has three bedrooms, with exposed wood beams; the master’s got an en suite bath and a walk-in closet. It probably doesn’t need to be said that there’s an open-plan parlor floor, which has a small sun room in the rear, and a kitchen with a U-shaped white stone countertop. This Open House Pick sold in March for $1.056 million, $7,000 above ask.
