Cypress Hills Standalone and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $729K


    This week, our open house picks are all historic, and some boast charming interior details as well as updates. While only one of the bunch — the least expensive — appears to be in certifiable move-in condition, all have great bones. The first three span the brownstone belt from Carroll Gardens to Park Slope and then Bed Stuy, and the final property is out in Cypress Hills.

    First up, in Carroll Gardens, a three-story, three-family Anglo-Italianate brick townhouse with a few original details, including a marble mantel and tin ceilings; there is also exposed brick. Currently configured as two one-bedroom rentals over an owner’s duplex, the home could use updating but appears to be in move-in condition. The property has been in the same family since 1948, according to the listing. The home is nestled on the quaint, unprotected two-block stretch of Luquer Street, 4.5 blocks from the Carroll Street F, G and one block from the BQE.

    Next, in Bed Stuy, within the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, a classic late Italianate brownstone configured as a two-family and in seemingly perfect condition. Period details include a pedimented door hood with keystone, cast iron newel posts and railings, carved marble mantels, original staircase, plaster arches, ceiling moldings, medallions and original diagonal flooring with inlays. The 45-foot-deep, 20-foot-wide property, built in the late 1800s, traded to an LLC in 2016 for $1.85 million. The home, which is the largest of four adjacent properties built by one J. Harris, is 5.5 blocks from the A and C trains at the Utica Avenue station.

    In the Park Slope Historic District now, a narrow three-story Neo-Grec brownstone has both updates and original details. Configured as a rental apartment over an owner’s duplex, period notes include glass-paneled wood doors in the entry, pocket doors, five decorative mantels, wooden shutters and built-ins. The house was a Brownstoner open house pick last month, when it first went on the market. Now it’s back with new brokers and new photos, although the asking price has not changed. The home is just over a block from the F and G trains at the 7th Avenue station.

    Last up is a charming Italianate wood-frame standalone in Cypress Hills with a driveway and rear garage. The house looks freshly renovated, and most recently changed hands in 2015 for $414,500. The home has a porch, which leads into an open format, bay windowed living room with an original mantel. The large eat-in kitchen takes up the rear of the space, and there is also a half bath on this level. In a rear extension is a full bathroom and a large room that could be used as a bedroom, office or dining room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a sitting area, and another full bathroom. Off the rear bedroom is a deck, and both cellar and attic are finished. It’s five blocks from the Cleveland Street J station and down the block from the sprawling green expanse of the Ridgewood Reservoir, Highland Park and, across the Jackie Robinson, a slew of cemeteries.
