Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One in Contract


    Here’s a look at how four of our featured listings from six months ago fared on the market.

    First, a circa 1914 tan-brick Crown Heights row house with a center bay that’s a flip, but not your average one. At 1160 Union Street, the renovation was artist-designed (by “French artist Virginie Sommet,” per the listing), and has a modern feel and some non-standard features including a glass-walled floating wood staircase and a green wall (or “vertical garden”) in the rear. This former House of the Day sold in September for $2.15 million, which was $49,000 below the asking price.

    Next, a Park Slope limestone on a park block that’s flat-out gorgeous, packed with details and spruced up by a high-end architectural renovation. Oh, and the sellers are Hollywood stars — John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, as reported by the Wall Street Journal and subsequently many another outlet. This former House of the Day entered contract in March.

    After that, a Flatbush studio that seems a worthy starter apartment, with a modest but livable space, a low maintenance and a price tag under $200,000. It’s on the first floor of a prewar co-op building with 78 units at 3220 Avenue H, a block and a half off Flatbush Avenue near Brooklyn College. This former Co-op of the Day sold in February for $175,000, which was $14,000 below the asking price.

    And to wrap it up, 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. This former Open House Pick sold in December for the asking price of $2.05 million.
