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 Ocean Hill, Flatbush, Fort Greene and Brooklyn Heights. How did they fare?

    First up, while this two-bedroom floor-through co-op is somewhat modest in size, the well laid out floor plan, details and terrace bigger than the second bedroom give it lots of character and additional room to spread out. It’s on the fourth and penultimate floor (including the garden floor) of a 25-foot-wide five-unit brick and brownstone townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, located a couple of blocks from the promenade. A former Co-op of the Day, it sold in September for $1.15 million, which was $250,000 below the asking price.

    Next, we have this shingled Dutch colonial in Ditmas Park West that has glorious Arts and Crafts details and a garage but it also has occupancy quirks that could make financing a challenge. A legal two-family, according to PropertyShark, it has three floor-through apartments, each with its own private entrance. This former House of the Day sold in July for $1.75 million, which was $200,000 below the asking price.

    Then, we have a semi-detached circa 1855 Greek Revival wood-frame with transitional Italianate details in the Fort Greene Historic District that has an equally remarkable double porch with classical columns, ear window trim, a dentilled cornice and an impressive entrance stair. The interior has tall parlor-level windows with ear trim, wide plank floors, a winding staircase with curved railing, exposed brick fireplaces, and a garden with extensive plantings. This one is listed as a two-family, but the floor plan looks like a duplex over two floor-throughs. This former Open House Pick sold in November for $2.3 million, which was $195,000 below the asking price.

    Last but not least, a nicely modernized 19th century brick townhouse with rusticated stone lintels. It’s configured as a duplex over a floor-through. The parlor floor has been opened up and stylishly modernized with new floors, built-in bookshelves, white painted exposed brick, and original slate mantels. The great room leads out to a spacious wood deck with stairs down to the garden. This former Open House Pick sold in August for $1.3 million, which was $51,000 above the asking price.
