Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Three Sold, One for Over Ask


    Today we’re looking back at four listings we featured six months ago to see how they fared. Three homes have sold — one for over ask — and the other one is no longer on the market.

    Our featured listings include a condo, two townhouses and a semi-detached house, with three properties located in the brownstone belt (Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Fort Greene) and the other located farther afield (Bergen Beach). The properties were all in move-in condition and boasted either an abundance of original details or sparkling new amenities.

    Let’s see how they did.

    First up: This 1,809-square-foot condo is the first resale at Sackett Union, the Carroll Gardens building that opened its doors at 291 Union Street in 2013. We featured the unit as a Condo of the Day. It’s got three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The place is enormous, bigger even than an old-school co-op, but with a modern layout. Among other things, that means an open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen, measuring 30 feet wide, with a wall of windows.

    The property sold for $2.685 million in March, $65,000 under its $2.75 million ask.

    If it’s an elegant, detail-laden Park Slope townhouse you’re after, you could do a lot worse than this 1901 Romanesque Revival beauty. A House of the Day six months ago, it’s four stories tall and full of lovely original woodwork. Located a stone’s throw from Prospect Park at 857 Carroll Street, it has inlaid parquet floors, abundant wainscoting, stained glass, pocket doors and five original fireplace mantels.

    The home sold for $4.95 million in March, $255,000 over its $4.695 million ask.

    On South Oxford Street in Fort Greene we’ve got a five-story house — featured as an Open House Pick — dating back to the 1880s. It’s been renovated, with original details left intact, including a mahogany center staircase, plaster moldings, four fireplaces (two working) and inlaid hardwood floors. There’s a massive four-bedroom quadplex for the owner and a one-bedroom garden rental. There’s also a lovely yard, which the owner can access from a parlor-level deck.

    The house sold in March for exactly its $2.995 million ask.

    Last up, a three-bedroom semi-detached home on East 71st Street in Bergen Beach, another Open House Pick six months ago. The kitchen was recently redone with granite countertops and new appliances; it’s got a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows. The house has hardwood floors, laundry in the basement, a deck and a garage.

    The property was taken off the market in March. According to the broker, the sellers’ plans changed and they decided to remove the listing.
