Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One Off the Market, One Still Available


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

    Starting us off: the entrance to 207 President Street delivers you into a tall-ceilinged living room with tin ceilings, arched doorways and ornate chandeliers. The parlor-level kitchen, set in what was once the rear parlor, has an original mantel, exposed plumbing, stainless steel appliances, and open shelving anchored in exposed brick walls. A small deck has stairs to the lush backyard garden. This former House of the Day sold in March for $3.35 million, which was $100,000 below the asking price.

    Next, this condo in Greenpoint’s storied Pencil Factory is a two-bedroom, two-bath unit with an open living/dining room and kitchen and plenty of windows except in the wet areas. After a change of broker, this former Condo of the Day is back on the market at a reduced price of $1.195 million.

    After that, we have this two-story wood frame townhouse in Greenpoint that seems to date from the late 19th century based on historical maps. It has three lovely slate mantels, two with the original faux marbling, two with their original summer covers, and one with an original stove insert. Very little is pictured but the photos show a parlor and the entry are still intact, including woodwork, moldings, and stairs with stained newels, railings, and balusters. Otherwise, 29 Sutton Street appears to be in rough condition and in need of the usual full renovation. This former House of the Day is currently off the market.

    Then in Crown Heights, there’s a three-story Renaissance Revival row house that has a barrel-fronted facade, bracketed cornice and foliate details. It’s set up as a three-bedroom floor-through over a two-bedroom duplex with a parlor-level deck and ground-level garden access. This former Open House Pick sold in April for $1.76 million, which was $39,000 below the asking price.
