Here’s one we’ve seen before. Back in March, we featured this one-family number with an angled bay front, located at 6 Stephens Court in Flatbush, as one of our Open House Picks. The home, which has elements of Arts & Crafts and Beaux Arts, changed hands just before the listing went up, and since then has gone through a renovation and is back on the market less than a year later.
Kudos to the developer for keeping the original details and floor plan. There are stained glass windows, pocket doors, an entry mirror and a tiled mahogany fireplace in the parlor. The floors are new.
Speaking of the parlor floor, it has a spacious double living room, a separate dining room (where you can find one of the stained glass windows) with paneling and a built-in sideboard with a mirror, and a kitchen. The dining room has a new door, formerly a window, that opens onto a small deck and stairs leading down to the backyard.
The kitchen is newly renovated, with a lot of cabinet space — upper cabinets are painted white, bottom cabinets electric blue — and a lot of counter area to work with. Handles and fixtures are brass.
Bathrooms are new as well. Two are pictured: Both have a clean, modern look, with one sporting marble tile on the walls, step-in shower and double sink, and the other with herringbone tile floors, off-white tile walls and a tub. There are four bathrooms in total, a half bath on both the garden level and off the kitchen on the parlor floor, and two full baths on the top floor.
One of the pictured baths is part of the master suite, which also has a walk-in closet. There are two more bedrooms on the second floor, both nicely sized — and one has a skylight. Each has a closet, and in the hallway is another closet for storage.
There’s a large family room in the above-grade basement, which has a separate entrance along with another bedroom and the aforementioned half bath. Laundry and mechanicals can also be found here.
In the same family since at least 1993, the house sold in March to an LLC for $650,000, according to public records. A few weeks later, a listing went up for the unrenovated house asking $999,999, but was taken off the market in April.
Mordy Werde and Michael Ettelson at Citi Habitats just listed the updated house for $1.35 million, more than double what it sold for less than a year ago. Worth it?
