Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Still Available


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in East Flatbush, Windsor Terrace, Windsor Terrace and Ditmas Park. How did they fare?

    First, this two-story brick row house in East Flatbush that appears fairly modest from the street, with medieval-themed details such as shields and stepped gables, but inside the three bedrooms and two baths are spread out through a pretty luxurious 2,255 square feet with a back patio and a steam room. This former House of the Day sold in May for $655,000, which was $44,000 below the asking price.

    Then we have this fifth-floor co-op in The Colonial in Brooklyn Heights that is relatively spacious at around 800 square feet and comes with a view of trees and neighboring gardens. Inside, it has four rooms and a few details like picture-frame moldings and a large leaded glass window in the bathroom. The latter is renovated, with subway tile that may or may not be original, marble floor tile, porcelain tub and a marble sink. This former Co-op of the Day sold in March for $1.31 million, which is $60,000 above the asking price.

    After that, there’s a circa 1900 limestone townhouse in Windsor Terrace with pronounced bay windows and a mixture of Beaux-Arts, Renaissance Revival and Arts and Crafts features. It belongs to a row of 16 townhouses facing Prospect Park, pretty impeccable as a location. And, if you’re into woodwork, the formal dining room is pretty dreamy, with its wood panels, decorative mantel, exposed beams, window frames and drawers set below the bays, as well as inlaid detailing of the floors. This former House of the Day sold in February for $2.787 million, which is $8,000 below the asking price.

    Wrapping up this week, a freestanding Colonial Revival in Ditmas Park with a three-car garage, central air and a large backyard that’s been in the same family since 1979. It has no less than six bedrooms and three and a half baths, the latter of which have been renovated with steam showers and radiant heated floors. There’s a new roof and repointed chimney, according to the listing, and an e-car charging station in the garage. This former Open House Pick is still available for $2.949 million, which is $201,000 below the former asking price.
