From Renovated to Needing Work, Four Houses to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.35 Million

    by

    Seven figures is the price of entry among our open houses this weekend, or to be more precise $1.35 million, the price tag on the least expensive one. Among seasoned Brooklyn home hunters this will surprise exactly nobody. They include a pair of Flatbush freestanders, a Sunset Park brownstone, and a row house in East Williamsburg; two are ready to be inhabited, two need some work.

    First up, a circa 1903 Tudor on East 17th Street in the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District that’s massive and move-in ready. It’s got five bedrooms, an office, four baths, and an expansive ground floor with a huge living room, a dining room, and eat-in kitchen and a sun room. It looks peaceful and bright, with details including leaded glass, parquet floors and a coffered ceiling in the dining room. There’s a rear deck, a “semi-finished” basement and a two-car garage.

    The next one’s close by, on Stratford Road in Beverly Square West, and it’s another large, freestanding house. This one’s got six bedrooms and a front porch, and it needs a bit of work: some polishing, and a new kitchen and bathroom. Or maybe two new bathrooms — outside of a half-bath in the basement, the house only has one, so adding another is a move a buyer might well consider. Plenty of original detail in this one, including a pair of fireplaces, hardwood floors, pocket doors, stained glass, plaster medallions and lots of mahogany woodwork. The listing says the house has “great bones and recently updated mechanicals.”

    Moving over to Sunset Park, on 48th Street we’ve got a two-family brownstone between 5th and 6th avenues. We don’t see a lot of these coming up for sale in this neck of the woods. This one’s a three-story — there’s no floor plan, but the listing describes the layout as follows: “3 bedrooms over 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on each of the three floors.” Perhaps you can make sense of that; either way, there are details within, including mantels, parquet floors, and original woodwork. There’s also a fair amount of work to be done to get this one into prime condition, including kitchen and bath updating, but it could polish up nicely.

    Last stop is East Williamsburg, where we find a three-story row house with a brick front. This one is newly gut renovated, with an upper duplex and a rental in the English basement. That one’s an open “studio loft” with a tiled floor and a galley kitchen; the duplex above has an open plan living space and three bedrooms. It’s got a brick patio with some landscaping in the rear, zoned a/c and new mechanicals.
