Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two in Contract


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Park Slope, Boerum Hill and Greenpoint. How did they fare?

    First up, we have a classic Park Slope brownstone on a park block in the historic district that’s been in the same family since at least 1966. The home is a well-preserved Victorian row house built in 1892-93 as a part of a group of six. It has lovely details such as extensive woodwork and five mantels. This former House of the Day sold in October for $2.475 million, which was $275,000 below the asking price.

    Next, we have this two-bedroom, two-bath co-op, located on the second floor of a state-of-the-art 1950 eight-story elevator building in Park Slope that could be made into a showpiece of modern design. The building has chamfered windows on both corners and a below-grade garage. Inside the apartment, the layout is a rational 1950s design that plays off the triangular cut-out. The foyer is open to the living room, which features parquet floors and broad six-pane windows. It’s roomy enough that one could imagine a wall of books, and the space includes a dining area through a wide-open threshold. This former Co-op of the Day entered contract in November.

    After that, we have a late Greek Revival brick row house in Boerum Hill. The four stories are configured as a triplex over a garden floor rental. The front parlor has impressively high ceilings, an ornate medallion that matches the crown moldings, recent built-ins, a typical Italianate marble mantel and pocket doors. This former House of the Day sold in December for $2.995 million, which was $500,000 below the asking price.

    Wrapping up, there’s a mid-19th century wood-frame Italianate townhouse in Greenpoint with two marble mantels and horse walk to a sizable backyard with two small tool sheds and a patio. Arranged as a three-bedroom duplex on the garden level with two floor-throughs above, it could perhaps use some upgrades but the kitchens and floors have been updated. This former Open House Pick entered contract in December.
