Four Central Brooklyn Houses Starting at $1.075 Million to See This Weekend


    Our open house picks for this weekend span three neighborhoods in Brooklyn’s midsection: Flatbush’s Fiske Terrace enclave, Bed Stuy, and Crown Heights. They include a sprawling Victorian (or Edwardian), a pair of row houses that need work, and another that’s newly renovated.

    In the Fiske Terrace section of Flatbush, on East 17th Street, we have a freestanding turn-of-the-last-century house with loads of space. A three-story, it’s got seven bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, and a finished basement to boot. There’s a front porch, a rear deck, a yard with a fire pit, and a two-car garage. Kitchen and at least one bath are renovated, and there are a lot of nice details on the ground floor, including stained glass, columns, parquet floors, pocket doors, wainscoting and mantels.

    Heading for Marcy Avenue in Bed Stuy, we’ve got a four-story brownstone that’s set on a corner, and thus semi-detached, allowing for a set of bay windows on the side. Not much original detail remains in this one, judging by the photos, and it’s in “bring your contractor” condition, according to the listing. It looks to be set up as a one-family (at least there’s only a single kitchen, on the garden level), though it’s got a three-family C of O. It’s directly across the street from Herbert Von King Park, which you could think of as a massive front yard.

    On Sterling Place in Crown Heights we find a one-family with a distinctive faux-stone facade. This one’s got four bedrooms on the top floor (two of them small), a full parlor and a garden-level kitchen. Not an abundance of detail, but there are some original floors, and it all looks to be newly renovated.

    Our last one is also in Crown Heights, on Lincoln Place, in the Crown Heights North Historic District. There we find a three-story with an angled bay in the front. The facade needs work, and apparently parts of the interior do as well, judging by the “bring your designer/architect” admonition in the listing. The parlor floor — the only one pictured — looks to be in decent shape, though, with bay windows in the front and rear. At the moment there are a pair of apartments above (only one with a kitchen) and a “workshop” on the garden level. Like they said, bring your architect.
