Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One in Contract, One Off the Market


    Once again, we return to look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Bed Stuy, Park Slope, Red Hook and Marine Park. How did they fare?

    Staring us off this week, one of a row of attractive Neo-Grec brownstones in Bed Stuy that has been recently renovated with preserved woodwork from its original 1880 construction.It’s a two-family duplex over a garden-level rental advertised as “carefully imagined and crafted for modern living,” with central air, a decked terrace, German appliances, an Italian stove and a “clean and classic” Scandinavian design in its remade kitchens and bathrooms. This former House of the Day sold in November for $2.245 million, which was $105,000 below the asking price.

    Next, we have a two-bedroom apartment in a 2007 condo building with stainless steel appliances, open kitchen shelving, bamboo floors and a minimalist open plan kitchen and living/ dining room. Nearly wall-to-wall street-facing windows in the living room may be adequate to bring natural light into the kitchen, and the previous owner updated it with a bank of wall-to-wall shelves below the sills and a hanging cabinet. This former Condo of the Day sold in November for $1.098 million, which was $113,000 above the asking price.

    After that, we have a quirky little red brick townhouse in Red Hook that was built in the mid 19th century. The home has charming characteristics like an old heating stove inside a mantel shelf/firebox in the living room. A door through the kitchen leads to a beautifully landscaped garden with a pathway to a backyard studio. Behind the studio is a garage accessible through an alleyway entrance. This former House of the Day entered contract in November.

    Finally, there’s a 1928 detached single-family home in Marine Park with parquet floors, stained glass in the dining room and a dog-leg stair to the three bedrooms upstairs. There are updates like new floors in the kitchen, the basement is refinished and the listing says there’s a backyard pool and a garage. This former Open House Pick did not sell and is currently off the market.
