Strap on Your Hiking Boots, We’ve Got Four Far-Flung Open Houses to See, Starting at $625K


    Should you want to hit all four of our open house picks this weekend, you’ve got some ground to cover. They cover four disparate spots on the borough map: Flatlands, Crown Heights, Canarsie and Bed Stuy. One is newly renovated, one requires work, and two appear ready for inhabitation, but could benefit from some upgrading.

    First up, a narrow, four-story brownstone on Brevoort Place in Bed Stuy. It’s a flip, and a reasonably thoughtful one, thoroughly and nicely renovated with exposed brick, recessed lighting, and herringbone and wide-plank oak floors. There’s a one-bedroom apartment on the bottom and an owner’s triplex above. The latter has a full-floor master suite up top, with a huge walk-in closet, a marble-tiled bath with a claw foot tub, and a ladder leading up to a roof deck. The house has surround-sound system, video intercom, alarm system and split A/C.

    The next one’s in Crown Heights on Bergen Street — a brick number with a flat facade and a concrete driveway in front. On the ground floor is a one-bedroom with access to the backyard and the basement “recreation area”; above is a duplex with four bedrooms, three up top and one at the rear of the lower floor. Not a lot of design frills with this one, which leans toward carpeted bedrooms with baseboard heaters.

    Next up is a semi-detached house on New York Avenue in Flatlands, between Avenue I and Avenue J. A two-story with a finished basement, it’s got three bedrooms and a lot of closets on the upper floor and a living room, dining room, family room and eat-in kitchen with dual sinks below. The living space has a floor of white stone tile and some stucco ceilings. The bathrooms have recently been renovated and the boiler and hot water heater are new; there are new windows as well. There’s a small porch in front and a detached garage in the rear.

    Last, a three-story brick row house in Canarsie, on East 103rd Street. It’s a three-family with an interior garage, which holds a separate unit on each floor. It could use some cosmetic upgrading and could have more meaningful issues than that — the listing specifies that it’s being sold “AS IS” and tells buyers to “bring your contractor.”
