Four Historic Charmers to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.6 Million


    Labor Day’s in the rear-view mirror and the nights are getting cool, which means several things: school is back in swing, we’ll soon be barraged by pumpkin spice, and the housing market is back in full gear. Lots to choose from this week, after the doldrums of August, and we’ve got four prime specimens four you, including a mews house, and who doesn’t love one of those? That one’s in Cobble Hill, the others are found in Crown Heights and Bed Stuy.

    First up, a flip on Lincoln Place in Crown Heights, which was bought in February and completely overhauled. An unorthodox layout on this one, which has a three-bedroom triplex with a double-height ceiling spanning the rear of the garden and parlor levels, with the kitchen in the rear of the garden level and a studio apartment in the front. The reno features a lot of exposed brick, white oak herringbone floors, wooden railings, and a master bedroom with a copper clawfoot tub by the window. There’s a video monitoring system, surround sound, automated lighting and a finished basement accessible through the triplex kitchen

    Next up is one of the highly coveted mews houses on Warren Place in the Cobble Hill Historic District. Need we say more? Actually there’s not a whole lot more we can say based on photo evidence, but the listing tells us the 1878 house has been renovated within the last seven years, with new windows, a heating/cooling system, new mechanicals, upgraded electric and plumbing, a repointed facade and Viking appliances. It’s a small one, as these houses are, with three stories — two bedrooms on the top, double parlor in the middle and kitchen/dining room below. There are four working marble fireplaces and a landscaped cobblestone patio.

    Heading back to Crown Heights, we find a four-story tan brick and limestone number on Bergen Street, in the Crown Heights North Historic District. This one delivers in the original detail department, with mirrors, tiled mantels, crown moldings, wainscoting, mahogany millwork and more. Maybe parquet floors as well, though at the moment whatever’s there is covered with carpet. It all looks to be in decent shape, as far as what’s pictured, though there’s work to be done here — the listing makes that clear. Refiguring may be part of that: The current layout includes a lower duplex with bedrooms on the parlor floor and a pair of floor-through apartments above.

    Last up, a three-story on MacDonough Street in Bed Stuy, which is having its first showing. Renovated but not a flip, the house is a three-family, with an apartment on each floor. It offers some bright, high-ceilinged spaces, with original details including mantles, moldings and fretwork. A nice quirk here is that the middle of the house gets some sunlight due to an interior courtyard between this house and the adjoining one, according to the listing, which asserts that the mechanicals “have been well-maintained.”
