Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: All Four Did Not Sell

    by

    We’re back to look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Crown Heights, Bushwick and East Flatbush. How did they fare?

    First up this week, we have a renovated three-story single-family row house in the Crown Heights North Historic District. It’s updated in the paint-it-all-light-gray style, with boldly contrasting charcoal kitchen cabinets, bathroom floor tiles and crown molding and other wood all painted white. It comes off well enough, with exposed fireplace bricks and wood floors adding a bit of warmth. The facade, on the other hand, has been covered at some stage with Permastone, which a buyer might have trouble restoring to the original brick. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    Next, a resale in a recently built duplex condo in Bushwick that has an attractive garden and finishes — not to mention two bedrooms and 1.5 baths — but the floor plan presents challenges. Like many new builds we see these days, whether rental or condo, the kitchen and living area are combined and leave barely enough room for a love seat or a dining table, but not both. This former Condo of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    After that, we have a well-preserved row house in Crown Heights owned by the same family since at least 1966. The single-family house looks to be move-in ready, although there may be room for improvements in the parts not pictured. The living room has decorative wood beams, a window seat in a niche, and parquet with inlaid borders. Upstairs are three bedrooms, all but one with closets. The master has two, plus parquet floors, all its original moldings and a wide bay window. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    Finally, we have a single-family standalone Edwardian in East Flatbush with a front porch, curving bays and gable that has been recently renovated, according to the listing. The exterior has Permastone on the ground floor, and the interior has baseboard heating, but otherwise, it has a lot of original details, including impressive neo-Classical mantels with original tile, stained glass in the stairwell, and molding with corner blocks. It seems to be in good condition, and the kitchen is nicely updated. In the backyard is an above-ground swimming pool. This former Open House Pick did not sell and is currently off the market.
