This week we’re looking back at four listings we featured six months ago to see how they fared. Buyers snapped up three of the properties, one for over ask. Notably, the three properties that sold were all recently renovated and move-in ready.
This one-family townhouse in Crown Heights — previously a House of the Day — has been completely renovated in thoroughly modern style, with contemporary geometric light fixtures, a sleek kitchen and a whole lot of marble. In addition to being wired up with a home security system, Bose ceiling speakers, master lighting controls and a basement screening area with surround sound, it’s got something not often found in one-family homes: a basement steam room.
The property sold in July for $1.795 million, its ask exactly.
It’s big, it’s beautiful and it’s a condo (and a Condo of the Day) — in a landmarked brownstone. This fetching two-bed, two-bath sits at the top floor of a 25-foot-wide house at 214 Park Place in Prospect Heights. Fully renovated six years ago, it’s a nice unit in fine shape, with an attractive kitchen, a lot of built-ins and a functional layout.
The unit sold in May for $1.5 million, $205,000 over its $1.295 million ask.
This massive Greek Revival has an interesting pedigree. The former House of the Day at 271 Hicks Street dates back at least to 1846. And since 1951 it’s been home to the family of architect Herbert Kaufman, a key member of the preservationist group that led to Brooklyn Heights becoming the city’s first historic district.
The home is still listed for $6.2 million, a $300,000 decrease from its original $6.5 million ask.
Last up, this two-bedroom, two-bath condominium at 324 22nd Street, a former Listing of the Day, is located in historic Greenwood Heights along a quiet, tree-lined street. There are bamboo floors throughout the open space. The kitchen features cherry wood cabinets and Carrera marble countertops that offer a beautiful contrast in color. The king-sized master bedroom has an en-suite full bath, and the second bedroom is located on the opposite side of the living room allowing full privacy. There is laundry in the apartment, and pets are welcome.
The property sold for $795,000 in June, $20,000 under its $815,000 ask.
