Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One off the Market


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, Prospect Heights and Ditmas Park. How did they fare?

    First, this 1903 French Renaissance-style row house that is verily besotted with carpentry. It’s got a coffered ceiling in the dining room, built-in glass cabinets, garlanded window casings with stained glass transoms, a built-in breakfast nook, decorative baseboard moldings and paneling, and even a wooden sauna inserted in the master bathroom. This former House of the Day sold in June for $3.95 million, which was $550,000 below the asking price.

    Occupying the rear two rooms of a monumentally scaled parlor floor, this one-bedroom, one-bath co-op in a grand Anglo-Italianate brownstone has 13-foot-high ceilings, a tall bay window, giant doorways with ear moldings and oversize original doors with octagonal details. A marble fireplace mantel — presumably decorative — is ornately carved with the same acanthus-leaf motif that dominates the building’s brownstone facade. This former Co-op of the Day sold in April for $1.045 million, which was $195,000 above the asking price.

    Next is a classic Italianate brownstone in Prospect Heights built around 1871 with bracketed window lintels and cornices, and original details on the interior like decorative window moldings and wainscoting. A three-family in the hands of the same family for decades, it is configured as two floor-through apartments over a duplex. This former House of the Day is currently off the market.

    Wrapping up this week, a standalone two-family home in Ditmas Park with bright green shingles and details like a coffered ceiling. The renovated kitchen features an island, a breakfast bar, and an eat-in sunroom facing a patio. Its garage has been converted into an office. There’s a second deck on the second floor, which also contains three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and no fewer than eight closets. The third floor is an income-producing one-bedroom with a loft converted into a combined kitchen and living room. This former Open House Pick sold in April for $1.675 million, which was $75,000 below the original asking price.
