Standalone Ditmas Park Victorian and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $875K


    This week, these four properties with open houses this weekend all have varying amounts of historic detail. A Ditmas Park West standalone is on the market for the first time in decades, a fruit street property has a whopping six fireplaces, a Bed Stuy home comes with a solid rent roll, and a Crown Heights limestone has a lovingly refinished stoop.

    First up, this 19th century Greek Revival two-family is located on a fruit street in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. The 21-foot-wide townhouse has six wood-burning fireplaces, all with original mantels, original pine plank floors, built-in shelves, pocket doors and moldings. An all-white, renovated kitchen has, unusually, a pier mirror and leads out onto a deck above the brick garden. There is additional outdoor space in the form of a terrace, and a guest-floor bathroom has a claw-foot tub. The home last changed hands in 2017, when an LLC bought it for $5.135 million. It is located around the corner from the 2 and 3 trains at the Clark Street Station.

    Next, in the Crown Heights North Historic District, is a three-story, two-family Renaissance Revival limestone with bay windows and a bluestone garden. Original details appear to be limited to tin ceilings and a single stunning stained-glass skylight surrounded by wood paneling. Both units feature eat-in kitchens; no bathrooms are pictured. The home is a block from the Nostrand Avenue 3 and 4 train station and has not changed hands since 2006 (when it sold for all of $600,000).

    In Ditmas Park West, a two-family standalone Victorian has all of the classic charm iconic of the neighborhood. The property’s interior is even more colorful than its tricolored exterior, with pink, blue, yellow and tan rooms. Period details include stained glass, original parquet, moldings, doors, arched windows and the winding staircase. The property needs work, but there’s also a lot to work with. It’s configured as an upper duplex and two-bedroom first-floor apartment. A private driveway fits three cars and there is a laundry room in the unfinished basement. The home is 6.5 blocks from the Newkirk Plaza B, Q station and has been owned by the same family for decades.

    Last up, in Bed Stuy close to Atlantic Avenue and the Crown Heights border, is a narrow yet charming brick three-story configured as a two-family, with an upper duplex over a garden apartment. It appears to be in move-in condition and has some curb appeal although few original interior details. The upper apartment has a private deck and the garden has access to the backyard, which has a shed and bright blue brick back wall which matches the front and under stoop doors. The home has hardwood floors, a stackable washer dryer in the duplex’s kitchen and basement laundry for the lower unit. According to the listing, the roof and mechanicals are new and an ADT security system was recently installed. The current rent roll is $52,800. The listing doesn’t say whether the property can be delivered vacant but does say it’s suitable for an investor or owner-occupant. The property last changed hands in 2015 for $675,500 and is 3.5 blocks from the Ralph Avenue C station.
