Four Move-in-Ready Historic Townhouses to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.425 Million


    The forecast has rain in store this weekend, but this month is prime home buying season and we’ve got four contenders to see this weekend. All are historic townhouses with plenty of original detail as well as modern updates and all appear to be in move-in condition. They span Cobble Hill, Park Slope and Bed Stuy, with two in the latter.

    First up, just outside the Cobble Hill Historic District, we have a gracious mid-19th-century brick townhouse divided into two duplex units. The Greek Revival-style red front door is flanked by sconces and is currently home to a “nesting mourning dove,” pictured in the listing. Period details include three mantels, built-in bookshelves, crown moldings and original wide-plank floors. Both units have backyard access, the upper apartment by way of a deck.

    Next, in Park Slope, a narrow Neo-Grec brownstone with two units over three stories. There are glass-paneled wood doors in the entry, pocket doors, five decorative mantels, wooden shutters and built-ins. It’s set up as a rental apartment over an owner’s duplex. The home is just over a block from the F and G trains at the 7th Avenue station.

    In Bed Stuy close to the Clinton Hill border, we have a four-story, three-family wood frame. Original interior details including tin ceilings, exposed brick and a white marble mantel. It’s set up as two floor-through apartments over an owner’s duplex. Both the rentals have two bedrooms each, although some are on the small side. The lower duplex has backyard access, and the single pictured kitchen looks to be in serviceable shape. The house is 1.5 blocks from the G train at the Bedford-Nostrand Avenue station.

    Last up, farther east in Bed Stuy, a two-family brownstone with updated mechanicals and period details. The house has elaborate woodwork, exposed brick, inlaid parquet floors, plaster details, and wooden doors that appear to be either restored or lovingly replicated. A deck leads down to a patio and garden. The home is configured as an owners duplex over a garden rental. The nearest subway, the J train at the Gates Avenue station, is 4.5 blocks away.
