Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Off the Market


    Another week, another look at how four of our featured listings from six months ago fared on the market.

    Starting us off, an unusual and striking house with high-Victorian curb appeal. At 334 Clinton Street in Cobble Hill, it’s a mid-19th century Greek Revival built as a twin to No. 336 next door. You’d be hard-pressed to figure that out by looking at it though. The house was altered in 1888 with a tower, front bay and mansard roof for, and very likely by, James Naughton, the Superintendent of Buildings for the Board of Education and architect of Boys High School in Bed Stuy. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    Next, we have a three-bedroom, two-bath condo that sits on the garden level of the John Arbuckle House, an 1888 Romanesque Revival mansion built for the coffee baron by the storied Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris. Now a nine-unit condo building, it’s at 315 Clinton Avenue, on a manse-lined stretch in the Clinton Hill Historic District. This former Condo of the Day sold in May for $1.395 million, which was $55,000 below the asking price.

    After that, there’s a fine figure of an Italianate brownstone, a late 19th century number with plenty of intact details and tasteful updating. Built circa 1869, it’s at 403 Clermont Avenue, in the Fort Greene Historic District. This former House of the Day sold in May for $3.78 million, which was $780,000 above the asking price.

    Wrapping it up this week, we have a prewar two-family brick row house with an attached garage on 12th Avenue in Kensington. It’s got a unit on each floor, with two bedrooms below, three above. Condition looks decent, though the pictures aren’t extensive; not much detail to speak of, though there are some inlaid parquet floors (also plenty of carpeting). This former Open House Pick sold in May for $1.29 million, which was $35,000 below the asking price.
