A Kensington Semi-Detached With a Garage and Three More to See This Weekend


    A rainy weekend might be ahead, but there are still houses to see. We’ve got a group that includes two with parking as well as a brownstone filled with original details. Found in Fort Greene, Kensington, Bed Stuy and Old Mill Basin, they range in price from $648,888 to $3.995 million.

    First up is an 1870s brownstone on South Elliott Place in the Fort Greene Historic District. The transitional Italianate/Neo-Grec single family was a House of the Day back in 2012 after a major renovation. Original details like marble mantels, plaster medallions, high ceilings and wood floors remained post reno and it appears the new owners made some design changes, like new paint and wallpaper, but left the details intact. The single-family home has a large eat-in kitchen and family room on the garden level, dining room and parlor with a working fireplace on the parlor level and then four bedrooms on the upper floors. The landscaped rear yard has a raised patio, new fencing and outdoor lighting.

    In Kensington, this early 20th century semi-detached brick house has an appealing front porch and a garage with a shared driveway. The interior of the single-family has a few period touches like wood floors and the staircase, but the first floor was renovated with an open-plan living room and kitchen with a large peninsula separating the two. There are two bedrooms that could be used for work-from-home space on the first floor and three more bedrooms and another study above. There are two full baths, one with a bright yellow tile wall.

    On Macdonough Street, this 1890s brownstone with a painted facade is set-up as a two-family with a rental above an owner’s duplex. There are wood floors, moldings, interior shutters and several wood mantels, including one that has been partially stripped of paint. There’s a renovated kitchen and bath in the one-bedroom rental while the kitchen and full bath in the duplex are not pictured, although the listing mentions they are ready for “design ideas and modern updates.” Plumbing and electrical have been updated and the roof replaced. For those with a green thumb, there is garden space by the front stoop as well as in the rear yard.

    This Dutch Colonial Revival detached house dates to the early 20th century when many of the houses in Old Mill Basin were constructed. While the original garage seen in the circa 1940 tax photo is no longer standing there is still a private driveway. On the interior, this three-bedroom, single-family home still has some of the original details including parquet floors, picture rails and staircase. There are dropped ceilings in a few of the rooms that a new owner might want to change. There’s a renovated full bath and a new boiler and hot water tank.
