Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One in Contract


    Another week, another look at four of our featured listings from six months ago. This week, we have homes in Flatbush, Cobble Hill and a pair in Bed Stuy.

    Starting us off this week, we have a two-story Colonial Revival in Flatbush that’s a renovated early 20th century brick home with original details as well as modern touches. Built in 1915-1916 by the firm of Cantor & Dorfman and prominent Brooklyn developer Charles Goell, it’s located at 3 Martense Court in a row that was previously featured as a Building of the Day. This former House of the Day sold in September for $1,767,500, which was $227,500 below the asking price.

    Next up, there’s a grand four-story Neo Grec brownstone on Hancock Street currently set up as a two-family that is full of details: original parquet wood floors, mahogany double entrance doors, stained-glass, waist-high wainscoting, and six mantels — four marble and two wood. And that’s only to name a few. This former Open House Pick sold in August for $2.6 million, which was $350,000 below the asking price.

    Following that, a picture-perfect Greek Revival-Italianate hybrid that’s spacious and updated, with details and a two-zone central air system. Built circa the 1850s, it’s a one-family located at 58 Tompkins Place in the Cobble Hill Historic District. This former House of the Day entered contract in October.

    And closing out this week, this stunning bay-fronted Renaissance Revival brownstone on Decatur Street in Bed Stuy that was previously in contract but apparently didn’t sell. There are five fireplaces and an abundance of original details, including pier mirrors, oak wainscoting and stained glass window transoms, much of which has been meticulously restored. This former Open House Pick sold in July for its asking price of $1.825 million.
