Two With Backyard Pools and More to See During the Weekend Heat Wave, Starting at $665,000


    This steamy weekend’s open house picks span a range of Brooklyn styles of domesticity, including a full designer remake with central cooling in Bushwick, options for revamping a historic home in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and the potential for hopping into move-in ready houses in Marine Park and Gerritsen Beach, both with pools, and the latter with a garage and an extensive backyard patio with a trellis.

    First, at 789 Bushwick Avenue in Bushwick, there’s a fully renovated brick Neo-Grec duplex over a garden rental with a parlor possessing immaculately preserved details. The entrance progression contains stripped wood doors with carved panels, a stylish carved bannister and pier mirror in the lobby and French doors into a front parlor that features a wood mantel with fancy scrolled brackets and an ornate cast-iron summer cover. The updates in the kitchen are glistening white and stainless steel, and some of the wainscoting is painted white to match. With four bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the top floor, half bathroom in the parlor and another in the rental, it’s asking for $1.995 million.

    Then at 205 Lefferts Avenue in the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Historic District, we have a 1906 two-story brick row house with a barrel front that has lots of details inside, such as bordered parquet floors, built-in cabinets, wainscoting and trim, as well as some unfortunate drop ceilings and a backyard that could use some love. The floor plan shows an apartment on each level and a covered patio through the kitchen on the first floor. The listing says it has six bedrooms, but the floor plan shows perhaps three. It’s asking for $1.525 million.

    Further south at 1638 Ryder Street in Marine Park, there’s a 1928 detached single-family home on the market with parquet floors, stained glass in the dining room and a dog-leg stair to the three bedrooms upstairs. There are updates like new floors in the kitchen, the basement is refinished and the listing says there’s a backyard pool and a garage. It’s looking for $799,000.

    Finally, at 41 Ebony Court in Gerritsen Beach, a 20th century brick standalone home only a few blocks from Plumb Beach Channel that looks to have been updated relatively recently, with wood floors downstairs, tile floors in the kitchen and a long wall of Shaker-style cabinets and new-looking carpeting in the three bedrooms upstairs. The house is located on a double lot with a garage and has an extensive backyard patio with a trellis and a pool for cooling off in this heat. The asking price is $665,000.
