Spacious Park Slope Brownstone and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.625 Million


    Half of this weekend’s open house picks are in the $1.6 million range, and the other two in the $3 million range. They span from Park Slope to Bed Stuy and Crown Heights, keeping it to the brownstone belt. All but the Bed Stuy number, an SRO, are two-families, and all have something in the way of historic details.

    First up, a Park Slope brownstone currently configured as a two-bedroom owners triplex over a one-bedroom garden rental. This one has the works: the upper unit boasts a double parlor, library and plenty of well-maintained original details, including etched glass, millwork surrounds, a pier mirror, pocket doors, original hardware and shutters, plaster wall and ceiling moldings and seven decorative mantels. There are bay windows on all four floors, and the eat-in kitchen has two sinks and a deck. The top-floor master suite has en suite bath with dual vanity, soaking tub and walk-in shower as well as a walk-in closet and dressing room. Also on the third floor is a home office (designed in the vein of the Morgan Library’s West Room, according to the listing) with built-in shelves.

    Next, also in Park Slope, we have a three-story, two-family, gut renovated brownstone with a two-story extension and terrace off the master bedroom accessible via French doors. The upper owners duplex has central air, radiant floor heating, home audio wiring and a thoroughly modern eat-in kitchen with island, farmhouse sink and pantry. The en suite master bath has a dual vanity, skylight and separate glassed-in shower and jet bath tub. Etched glass pocket doors divide the unit’s front living and dining area from the back kitchen and media area, and there is also a stained glass transom. The two-bedroom garden-floor rental has original flooring, and both units have access to the landscaped backyard with built-in planters. There are bay windows on every level and one decorative mantel per unit.

    After that, there’s a three-story, two-family home in Crown Heights that’s currently configured as a lower duplex beneath a four-bedroom top-floor rental. There are crown moldings, stained glass windows, millwork surrounds, baseboards, an original carved newel post and a decorative mantel in the way of historic notes, but the home needs some work. The backyard has a large central garden pit and beat up chain link perimeter fencing.

    Last on the list is an SRO brownstone in Bed Stuy with a certificate of no harassment in place and in need of a full gut. Original details include a carved newel post, baseboards, a number of mantels and crown moldings. The facade has a bracketed cornice, pedimented entry and lintels.
