Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: All Four Sold


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Kensington, Fort Greene, Williamsburg and Bay Ridge. How did they fare?

    We start with this real charmer in Kensington that belongs to a row of circa 1910 two-story brick homes with front porches and fanciful toppers. Inside are impressive original details like parquet floors with elaborate borders, stained glass windows, a pier mirror with fluted columns and foliate details, and neo-Classical columns between the two parlors. This former House of the Day sold in April for $1.6 million, which was $101,000 above the asking price.

    Next, we have this two-bedroom, two-bath condo at 101 North 5th Street that has some advantageous qualities, including 963 square feet of space, deeded parking spot, two balconies, 11-foot-high ceilings and big windows on two sides. This former Condo of the Day sold in May for $1.325 million, which was $70,000 below the asking price.

    After that, we have a brick Italianate in the Fort Greene Historic District that is accented with at least three carved marble mantels, crown molding and original woodwork. The winding staircase has a handsome curved mahogany railing, and, past the stair on the garden level, there’s a stylishly updated kitchen that has a breakfast island, stainless steel appliances, a green tiled nook in the old fireplace, dark stone countertops, white cabinets and a door to the garden. This former House of the Day sold in August for $2.495 million, which was $180,000 below the asking price.

    And, to end this week, we have an early 20th century single-family townhouse in Bay Ridge that has lots of great vintage details. These include kitchen cabinets that date from mid-20th century, nicely updated with marble-patterned wallpaper and white subway tile. It’s got three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, and a garage with a little wood chip garden beside it. This former Open House Pick sold in June for $1.17 million, which was $5,000 below the asking price.
