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


    Another week, another opportunity to look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Greenpoint, Sunset Park, Crown Heights and Bed Stuy. How did they fare?

    First, we have an early 20th century tapestry brick townhouse in Crown Heights that’s brimming with original detail in remarkably good original condition, such as a dining room whose textured wall panels still have their original faux leather finish. This former House of the Day sold in October for $1.55 million, which was $49,000 below the asking price.

    Next, there’s an apartment in one of the classic Finnish co-ops in Sunset Park that is showing off lots of early-to-mid-20th-century minimalist design flair. Located across from Sunset Park, it’s a corner apartment with south and west facing windows. You enter into a small foyer with two closets facing the completely remodeled kitchen. The stone countertop-breakfast bar is nicely positioned perpendicular to the galley-style minimalist cabinets and appliances. This former Co-op of the Day is still available at the reduced asking price of $439,000.

    After that, we have a late Victorian brownstone in Bed Stuy that has been revamped from top to bottom but still features some incredible woodwork and mantels. Set up as a duplex below two 1.5-bedroom apartments, 595 Hancock Street belongs to a row of three that combine elements of popular architectural styles of the day, such as Romanesque Revival and Neo-Grec. A former House of the Day, it sold in December for $2.475 million but has yet to hit public records.

    Wrapping things up in Greenpoint, we have a Neo-Grec brick house with striking interior historical features like mahogany mantels with fanciful toppers, ornate window and door trim, a pier mirror and parquet floors. The stairwell has a stained-glass skylight, screens, turned spindles and a handsome banister. The updates are kind of an old school version of luxury with a hot tub sheathed in white-veined granite and a gold-trimmed glass shower. This former Open House Pick did not sell and is currently off the market.
