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


    Once again, we’re taking a look back at four of featured listings from six months to see how they fared on the market. This week, we have homes in Bed Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Fort Greene.

    First, an extra-large Bed Stuy brownstone packed with rare original details, including a Juliet balcony and a whopping 10 decorative mantels. It’s located at 105 MacDonough Street in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, and the asking price doesn’t fully match the serviceable renovation. This former House of the Day is still available, at the reduced price of $3,199,999.

    Next, in Crown Heights, we have a rarity: an HDFC prewar co-op that allows subletting. This first-floor apartment at 1055 Bergen Street, located just outside the Crown Heights North Historic District, is only $325,000, but the buyer’s income can’t exceed the cap — $110,220 for a single, $126,060 for a family of two and $141,735 for a family of three. In addition, the buyer would need the cash on hand to purchase the apartment outright and then make the necessary renovations. This former Co-op of the Day is currently off the market.

    After that, a grand Renaissance Revival limestone home in the Prospect Lefferts Garden Historic District with a red clay roof, garage and period details galore. The semi-detached corner property at 125 Maple Street, which appears to be in good condition but may need some work, boasts a strong architectural pedigree. This former House of the Day switched brookers and is still available at the reduced price of $3.5 million.

    Rounding us out this week, a 22-foot-wide Italianate brick townhouse in the Fort Greene Historic District. It’s been on the market a few times since it last sold back in 2012 for $3.1 million. The green cornices on the home’s facade are quite fetching and there are at least two carved marble mantles, wood paneling, crown moldings and intricate floor mosaics inside that have been wonderfully restored — and by the founder of Pratt’s Historic Preservation Program, no less. This former Open House Pick sold in June for $4.2 million, which was $50,000 below the asking price.
