    This weekend we have a selection of handsomely renovated homes with historic features, a couple from the late 19th century, a couple built circa 1940. They range from a single-family with a vintage blue bathroom and a garage in Brownsville to a two-family triplex over garden rental in Fort Greene, expertly gut renovated with kitchen and bathroom updates, a building system overhaul, and preserved details. Also showing on Sunday are a classic Amzi Hill-designed four-story home with lush details in the Clinton Hill Historic District and a fancy restoration of a brick row house in East Williamsburg.

    First, at 412 Adelphi Street in Fort Greene, a gut renovated 19th century brick row house, currently set up as a two-family with triplex over garden rental, features hardwood floors with borders, wainscoting and simple crown molding and mantels. The eat-in, galley-style kitchen faces the front on the parlor level, nicely modernized with Henry Built cabinets, subway tile walls and a sustainably manufactured countertop. The master bedroom is similarly tiled, with a wood floor, clawfoot tub and double hanging sinks. A terrace from the living room with a preserved mantel has steps to a garden landscaped with gravel and plant beds bordered with pavers. The facade is accented with a simple brownstone band on the ground floor, sills, lintels and a bracketed cornice. The reno includes zoned central heat and AC. The asking price is $3.25 million.

    Next at 157 Willoughby Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District is a two-family triplex over garden-level apartment designed in 1885 by Amzi Hill. It features some of the preserved ornate window and door trim with shutters, wood mantels and dentiled crown molding one expected in a fine 19th century mansion, though the parlor level has been opened up and the stairwell stripped to expose the brick. At one time it likely contained some of the more ornate flourishes. The kitchen has been updated and there’s a balcony with steps to a small garden in back with planted beds and brick paving. It’s looking for $2.25 million.

    Then at 6 Sharon Street in East Williamsburg, a 1940 brick single-family row house in a row with deep front gardens facing Cooper Park has received a designer update. The front yard is extensively planted and the porch updated with a modern roof with skylights, built-in benches and polished concrete floor. French doors opening to the living room with wood floors and the open kitchen/ dining area beyond, featuring an island and new appliances and cabinetry. Sliding glass doors lead to a new rear deck. Upstairs are two bedrooms and an equally stylish bathroom. The lofted attic appears to be accessible by a ladder from the front bedroom. This one is priced at $1.899 million.

    Finally, at 9222 Kings Highway in Brownsville is another smartly renovated brick home from 1940 with vintage details like parquet floors, niches, archways, a fabulous updated vintage kitchen with baby blue cabinets and white tile walls and backsplash with azure blue borders. The vintage blue bathroom also has original features like a built-in shower, medicine cabinet, and baby blue tub and toilet. There’s a sunroom in the rear, a driveway and garage in front, and an in-law suite with a bedroom and bathroom in the basement. That’s asking $595,000.
