A Carriage House With Parking and Three Others to See This Weekend, Starting at $2.195 Million


    Our picks for open houses this weekend are all move-in-ready and two of them come with coveted off-street parking. Found in Cobble Hill, Park Slope and Kensington, they range in price from $2.195 million to $3.995 million.

    This circa 1870s former carriage house on Cobble Hill’s Verandah Place has been modernized for human residents but it does still come with off-street parking, albeit for a car, not a horse. In the Cobble Hill Historic District, the interior of the 25-foot wide brick building was renovated in 2002. The single family home has a kitchen and laundry on the garden level and a living room with access to a terrace on the floor above. There are three bedrooms including a suite on the top floor with a sitting room and en suite bath. In addition to the terrace, there is a pocket-sized rear yard with a paved patio and a bit of room for planting.

    In the Park Slope Historic District, this circa 1902 limestone was designed by prolific Brooklyn architect Benjamin Driesler. Now a two-family with a top floor rental and owner’s duplex, its interesting real estate trajectory from rental to co-op and back to single ownership was featured in the New York Times. The interior mixes some original features like wood floors and mantels with exposed brick walls and renovated kitchens and baths. The duplex has four bedrooms and two full baths.

    Staying in Park Slope but hopping outside of the historic district to 11th Street, this late 19th century brick row house has a few original details like wood floors, moldings and mantels. The two-family house has a one bedroom apartment on the garden level and a three-bedroom duplex above. The duplex has a renovated galley kitchen, two full baths and a new mini-split air conditioning system. On the garden level, there are wood floors, more original moldings and a vintage circa 1930s kitchen complete with an original drainboard sink.

    Finally, in Kensington this early 20th century bow-front is at the end of a row, giving it the benefit of windows on the side facade and a bit of a side yard. It also boasts a two-car garage and solar panels. The single family home has living, dining and a kitchen with a windowed breakfast nook on the first floor and four bedrooms and an office above. Original details include wood floors and picture rails. For storage, there are plenty of built-ins including bookshelves in the living room and the breakfast nook. The finished basement includes another home office and a laundry room.
