A Prospect Park South Standalone With a Driveway and Three More to See, Starting at $975K


    Our picks for open houses this weekend are all move-in-ready and two include off-street parking. Found in Cobble Hill, Prospect Park South, Bed Stuy and Dyker Heights, they range in price from $975,000 to $3.995 million.

    First up, in Cobble Hill, this four-story townhouse on Butler Street might look familiar to long-time readers. It was an Open House Pick in 2017 but before that, it was home to Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, ex-Real Housewives of New York stars and, in Simon’s case, a Brownstoner commenter (their 2009 renovation sparked plenty of comments). The facade has had a refresh since then, with the paint removed and a new door surround at the entrance. The owner’s triplex has some original features including a wood-burning fireplace and pocket doors. The kitchen is at the rear of the parlor floor and it has a bi-fold glass wall leading to a deck. One of the two floor-through rentals has been recently renovated — the other holds a rent-controlled tenant. It is priced at $3.995 million.

    In the Prospect Park South Historic District, this early 20th century standalone has an appealing deep front porch and a gated driveway. Original details on the interior of the single-family include wood floors, a stair with a built-in bench and wainscoting in the dining room. The renovated kitchen has a banquette and sliding glass doors out to a deck. There is plenty of bedroom space with six of them spread out over two floors. The finished basement, with a dropped ceiling, has a rec room, laundry and a half bath to add to the 2.5 baths in the house. The ask is $2.595 million.

    On Chauncey Street in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, this 1880s Queen Anne by architect Amzi Hill is set up as a two family with an owner’s duplex and a garden rental. That chic apartment was a Rental of the Day in 2020 and the full house was an Open House Pick in 2017. The renovated owner’s duplex has modern upgrades with some original details including four slate mantels (one fireplace works), pocket doors and crown moldings. While the front parlor is used by the current owner as a bedroom with a living room and kitchen in the rear parlor, a new owner could have a more traditional parlor floor setup and still have three bedrooms and a skylit den above. It is priced at $1.975 million.

    Finally, in Dyker Heights this semi-detached 1920s brick house has a shared driveway leading to a garage. It has a somewhat open plan on the first floor, incorporating the original sunroom into the living room with a dining room beyond and a renovated, windowed kitchen at the rear. That kitchen has lots of white cabinets along with quartz counters and a breakfast bar. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a full bath. Another full bath is found in the basement along with a laundry room and rec room. It is listed for $975,000.
