Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: One Sold, One in Contract


    This week, we’re looking back at how four of our featured listings fared six months on. They included a newly-built condo, a carriage house in Brooklyn Heights, and a home just off the boardwalk in Manhattan Beach.

    At 112 Rutland Road in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District, this home’s been in the same family since at least 1982. It needs a fair amount of renovation and upgrading, but its original details are very much intact, and it could be quite the looker. Built in 1921, it’s one of a row of 11 houses designed by onetime Brooklyn buildings commissioner Peter J. Collins. This House of the Day sold in January for $1.3 million, $595,000 below ask.

    Next is a distinctive domicile — a 19th-century Brooklyn Heights carriage house on coveted Grace Court Alley that’s gotten a thorough and modern renovation, presumably with no expense spared, by the architecture firm Baxt Ingui. A carriage house often means tight spaces, but the renovation bestowed more than 4,700 square feet of living space, plus a private garage. This House of the Day is no longer available as of July.

    This three-bedroom condo is brand new, sited in a freshly constructed three-unit townhouse at 949 Pacific Street in Crown Heights, where a vacant lot sat not long ago. It’s a duplex, 1,573 square feet, on the house’s two lower floors. There’s an open plan living space on the bottom, with the kitchen in front. The living room opens up to the backyard via a pair of sliding glass doors; a floating, glass-paneled staircase leads to the bedrooms upstairs. This Condo of the Day is in contract.

    This house sits on Girard Street in Manhattan Beach. It’s an interesting one — a single family in a 1960s late modernist style, with a wraparound porch on the second floor and a roof deck above. It’s got a large ground floor that’s split into a warren of rooms, in contrast to the open-plan spaces that are all the rage at the moment; there’s a foyer, living room, dining room, breakfast room, center hallway, den and bedroom. This Open House Pick is still available for the same ask price, but has switched brokers.
