Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: One Sold, One in Contract, One Off Market, One Still Available


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

    Converted into a one-bedroom residence by the 1970s, this house in Brooklyn Heights was renovated a second time in 1998 by the highly decorated architect Leslie Gill — a graduate of Cooper Union and longtime professor at Columbia University — who took the reins to transform it into a contemporary three-bedroom loft-style home. On the ground level, there’s an enclosed parking spot for a car beside a powder room and office, the latter lit by an existing window facing the mews block. To the rear, a patio, windows and glass doors surround and brighten the open plan kitchen and dining room, installed with mid-century modern-style wood shelving and cabinets, and wood and soapstone counters. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    Next, though relatively modest in size, we have this two-bedroom garden-level co-op is centrally located in Park Slope and lacks for nothing in its interior planning. At about 900 square feet plus a terrace, it might do the trick for a well-off couple or small family. Clever space allocation has allowed for a large foyer with room for seating, seven closets plus storage under the stoop, built-ins, and an in-unit washer-dryer. A former Co-op of the Day, it sold in September for $995,000, which was $205,000 below the original asking price.

    After that, we have a Queen Anne style townhouse in Greenwood Heights that has an unexpected exuberance inside and out, standing a touch taller than its neighbors on 4th Avenue and adding a fair amount of English, to borrow an expression from billiards. The exterior has a little bit of everything, and that goes for the inside too. A former House of the Day entered contract in October.

    Lastly, in Fiske Terrace, there’s a freestanding house with no fewer than eight bedrooms. It has a wraparound porch, a garage and tons of interior details, including unpainted woodwork, leaded and stained glass, built-in cabinets and a pristine original bathroom. It could use some primping and polishing perhaps, but it something to see. This former Open House Pick is still available at the reduced price of $1.695 million.
