Garages, Solar Panels, a Pool and More in Open Houses This Weekend, Starting at $800K


    This weekend’s open houses are all early 20th century brick houses — some with original interior features and three of them with garages. Located in Windsor Terrace, Bay Ridge, Midwood and Wingate, they range in asking price from $800,000 for a semi-detached brick house in Wingate to $4 million for a Windsor Terrace standalone. Keep in mind that most open houses still require appointments to be scheduled before viewing.

    The detached brick home in Windsor Terrace packs in a saltwater pool, pool house, garage and driveway into a 50-foot-wide double lot. The two-family house is set up as a single-family and the renovated interior includes an open plan kitchen and living room with a gas fireplace at the rear of the house, overlooking a patio and the pool. There are four bedrooms upstairs along with two of the four full baths in the house. There’s central air, radiant floor heating, wiring for audio and solar panels. The pool house also is fitted out with solar panels as well as its own heating and cooling system.

    In Bay Ridge, this early 20th century brick bow-fronted house is at the end of a row and has the bonus of an attached garage. While from the street it appears to be a standard early garage, behind it is an addition that includes secondary garage space and a one-story storage space that wraps around the back of the house. Inside, the parlor level holds some original details, including wood floors, stair and built-ins and a coffered ceiling in the dining room. Upstairs are four bedrooms, and the largest two share a pass-through with sink. There are two full baths, one per floor, and a half bath in the cellar along with the laundry.

    In Midwood, this Colonial Revival has the expected stylistic elements on the exterior, including keystone lintels, a pedimented door surround and a front door with a fanlight. Inside, original details include wood floors, coffered ceilings, stained glass, wall moldings and a built-in window seat in the bay window of the living room. The kitchen and one full bath could use some style upgrades, and some flooring upstairs appears to be in need of refinishing, but otherwise the house looks move-in ready. Upstairs are three bedrooms plus a center room that could be used as an office or walk-in closet.

    Finally, this brick single-family in Wingate is one of 84 houses constructed in the 1920s as part of the Coral Gardens development. While the names of the area and the individual streets evoke Florida, the houses are all English cottage and Tudor-style homes set facing private courtyard streets. This three-bedroom home is on a corner lot, giving it plenty of windows and a side garden. It also has a one-car garage facing an alley. Inside, the renovated home has a living room and open plan dining room and kitchen on the first floor and three bedrooms and a full bath above. There’s a cellar with laundry and a half bath.
