Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Two Sold, One Still Available


    This week, we took a look back six months on the calendar and check out how four of our featured listings fared on the market. They included a frame house in East Flatbush, a barrel-front brownstone in Crown Heights, and a Federal style wood-frame gem in Brooklyn Heights.

    Nicely renovated frame houses with details are still rare in East Flatbush, but here’s one. It’s located at 787 East 34th Street, between Foster and Farragut. With a unit on each floor, the detached two-family could be reverted to one-family use, bought as investment property or used as an owner’s unit with a rental. This House of the Day is still available for $995,000, a price cut of $105,000.

    This one’s a piece of history — plus there’s off-street parking. At 13 Pineapple Street in Brooklyn Heights, is a lovely Federal wood-framer dating to the early 19th century, which our own Suzanne Spellen called “the classic Brooklyn Heights house,” and a “beauty” to boot. This House of the Day is no longer available as of June.

    With a price tag under $200,000, this prewar studio co-op in Flatbush is attractive, reasonably spacious and in fine repair, with a renovated bathroom and eat-in kitchen. It’s on the top floor of a 47-unit 1930s building at 2835 Bedford Avenue, close to Brooklyn College and not far from the Flatbush Avenue 2/5 subway stop. This Co-op of the Day sold in May for $180,000, $5,000 below ask.

    This home on Union Street in Crown Heights is a two-story barrel-front brownstone with a front porch, set up with a pair of floor-through apartments. Original details include inlaid parquet floors, stained glass, a coffered ceiling, crown and other moldings and a pair of columns. This Open House Pick sold in June for the ask price of $1.225 million.
