Neo-Tudor, Picturesque-Style Home in PLG and Three Others to See, Starting at $1.225 Million


    A quartet of well-kept early 20th century homes are on view this weekend. Two have garages, and all have preserved original details as well as largely successful contemporary updates. They range from a circa 1915 neo-Tudor/ Picturesque-style home in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens to an early 20th century two-story brick townhouse in Bay Ridge with a front sunroom and separated garage. In between, an East Williamsburg house on a secluded block near Cooper Park and Orient Grove contrasts designer updates with preserved wood details, while a brick row house in Dyker Heights dating from around 1940 features arched doorways and plaster features.

    A renovated neo-Tudor, Picturesque-style house, according to the designation report of the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District, is showing on Sunday. It has a coffered dining room, built-in window benches, parquet floors and a wood-burning fireplace with an original mantel plus a well-designed kitchen and bathroom updates. Designed by architect Peter J. Collins and built around 1915, it has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a refinished basement with exposed beams with a half-bathroom and room for a multipurpose room and two offices spread over three floors including the attic. It’s asking for $2.25 million.

    In East Williamsburg, an early 20th century fully detached tapestry brick house also has an open house. It has been modernized on the inside with better-than-average quality design, but still has some preserved original details. The long white bookcase in the living room stands out in particular, with a built-in niche over the air duct, a bright white and stainless steel kitchen renovation with a scalloped doorway to a mudroom leading to the garden. The hallway has preserved unpainted woodwork as does the staircase, which has a skylight on the second story. The listing says it includes “private garage parking” and a shared driveway, new plumbing, air conditioning and a new roof. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom, and the basement has a rec room, an additional half-bath and a laundry room. The garden is paved with bricks with planted borders and a trellis. The address is 22 Orient Avenue, a secluded one-block street between Cooper Park and Orient Grove — a triangular park dating back to 1897, according to the Department of Parks and Recreation. The owners are asking for $1.999 million.

    Then in Dyker Heights, another early 20th century home is available to see on Sunday. This one is a circa 1940 brick row house with a garage on the garden level and a rental studio behind. It appears well-maintained and has original features such as arched plaster doorways in the living and dining room, as well as an arched feature over the tub in the bathroom, dentiled molding and parquet. The kitchen is renovated and although the cabinetry is not the most fashionable the arched motif echoes the plaster details. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom updated with beige tile and likely original Deco Moderne navy fixtures. Sliding glass doors from the dining room lead to a terrace with an awning and a paved backyard with a border plant bed. The asking price is $1.35 million.

    Finally, in Bay Ridge, an early 20th century two-story home is on view Saturday. It has a separated garage accessed by a rear alleyway. The garden level features a street-facing sunroom, which has four windows with mullions and transoms, and a setback ceiling with a skylight. The ground floor has parquet and original doors, but is renovated in an open plan living/ dining room with more recessed overhead lights than any human ever wants, a breakfast bar and sliding glass doors into the patio. The kitchen is in a rear extension and has another skylight. Upstairs are three bedrooms and an updated bathroom with gray tile walls, a glass-enclosed bathtub and new vanity with a stone counter. A rec room and laundry are in the basement. The asking price is $1.225 million.
