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


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

    Carefully restored and updated with high-end flourishes, up first this week is this elaborate Axel Hedman townhouse that is part of a row of 10 in Bed Stuy’s Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. The Hedman wood detailing is all preserved, including such characteristic neo-Renaissance details as fretwork screens, trim ornamented with wreaths and swags, pass-throughs, mantels, pier mirrors and window seats. This former House of the Day entered contract in September.

    Next, we have this better-than-average-seeming new condo hidden inside a circa 1890 townhouse designed by architect and builder I.D. Reynolds & Son in the Park Slope Historic District Extension I. Located on the third floor of the three-unit walkup, it’s a duplex with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three outdoor spaces. This former Condo of the Day entered contract in April.

    After that, there’s this fairly charming, low key, old school Park Slope two-family deal that’s configured as a four-bedroom duplex over a garden-level one-bedroom floor-through. It’s not recently renovated but seems to be in good condition for a late Victorian brownstone, and it has some nice architectural features like expressive stone carvings, preserved ironwork, drip molding and convex bands of stone. This former House of the Day sold in September for $3.1 million, which was $300,000 above the asking price.

    Wrapping up this week in Flatbush, there’s a large standalone single-family home that belongs to an approximately five square block neighborhood known as Midwood Park and was built between 1905 and 1910 by John R. Corbin, who is said to have pioneered an assembly-line process of construction for what were nonetheless luxury homes of their time. It has a porch and garage and appears to be in good condition, with lots of woodwork, five bedrooms, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. This former Open House Pick sold in July for $2.02 million, which was $70,000 above the asking price.
