Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: All Four Sold


    This week, our look back at four featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Cobble Hill, Dumbo, Prospect Park South and Kensington. How did they fare?

    First, we have a three-story landmarked 1850s brick townhouse at 190 Warren Street that belonged to the late Magnum photographer Charles Harbutt, who covered, among other things, the Cuban revolution, and whose photos illustrate the 1969 Plan for New York City. Landmarked in 1970 as a part of the Cobble Hill Historic District, the house has a wide 25-foot street front and details — promising, despite the possible need for renovation. This former House of the Day sold in April for $4.85 million, which was $145,000 below the asking price.

    Next, this condo in an 1895 soap factory at 50 Bridge Street, now part of the Dumbo Historic District, was designed by William Tubby, one of a handful of great late Victorian Brooklyn architects, who was known for his Romanesque Revival and Dutch Revival buildings and for significant parts of the Pratt Institute campus. This former Condo of the Day sold in February for $1.075 million, which was $20,000 below the asking price.

    Wrapping up, this freestanding Colonial Revival at 60 Hinckley Place in Prospect Park South has the grandiosity of an early 20th century Edwardian house, with a master bath to match. The glass cube shower may not be to every buyer’s taste, however, which begs the question whether the $670,000 increase since it last changed hands in 2016 is to a large extent just covering the previous owner’s renovations. This former House of the Day sold in March for $2.15 million, which was $45,000 below the asking price.

    To end things this week, we have an updated single family brick row house in Kensington with prewar charm. It has hardwood floors, a landscaped backyard with patio, three bedrooms and a renovated kitchen that looks a little hemmed in for the 1,530-square-foot house. According to the listing, there are new mechanicals. This former Open House Pick sold in April for $987,000, which was $63,000 below the asking price.
