Neo-Grec in Greenpoint and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $789,000


    This weekend’s open house picks have in common late 19th century to early 20th century shells with some fine interior details and a range of updates, some old, some new. Among the more striking are a Neo-Grec brick rowhouse in Greenpoint on tree-lined Lorimer Street with screens and ornate trim, a limestone Renaissance Revival row house in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens with swags and mantels, and a Neo-Grec brownstone with fretwork screens and mantels. Then in Flatlands, a circa 1900 standalone single-family house that has hardwood floors, a dog-legged stairway and windows galore.

    At 1097 Lorimer Street in Greenpoint, we have a Neo-Grec brick house with striking interior historical features like mahogany mantels with fanciful toppers, ornate window and door trim, a pier mirror and parquet floors. The stairwell has a stained glass skylight, screens, turned spindles and a handsome bannister. The updates are kind of an old school version of luxury with a hot tub sheathed in white-veined granite and a gold trimmed glass shower. The offering is asking for $2.65 million.

    At 363 Hawthorne Street in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, there’s a limestone row house, quite possibly Renaissance Revival with its wreathed cornice and mantels, that presents somewhat of a palimpsest with its virtually rendered staging that still has holes in the floor. Its actual condition is uncertain, but it does appear to have been at least partially if not completely renovated, according to the listing, which is asking for $1.299 million.

    Then at 100 Albany Avenue in Crown Heights, a Neo-Grec brownstone with neo-classical window and door pediments and a bracketed and dentilled cornice has a parlor level with an extensive fretwork screen and a winding bannister on the stairs, impressive marble mantels and wide plank floors, among other things. The kitchen is updated with ivory shaker-style cabinets and relatively new appliances, and there’s a parlor-level deck with stairs to the garden. It’s a two-family with a garden-level rental offered for $1.295 million.

    Lastly, at 3701 Avenue L in Midwood, a standalone circa 1900 corner house with endless windows and a mixture of siding and stucco on the exterior, which appears to be in good condition based on photos. The floors are all ostensibly hardwood and the stairway has a dog-legged landing with two rounded curtails. No floor plans, but it’s asking for $789,000.
