Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two Off the Market


    Once again, we return to look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Park Slope, Bay Ridge and Sunset Park. How did they fare?

    First, an early 20th century bow-fronted brick row house that’s located near the newly minted Bay Ridge Parkway-Doctors’ Row Historic District — and fittingly it’s well preserved inside and out. In addition to well-preserved interior details, the single-family home has an updated kitchen and bathroom, both in classic black and white with a vintage feel in keeping with the house. This former House of the Day sold in January for $1.3 million, which was $25,000 above the asking price.

    Although only two rooms, this compact one-bedroom in Park Slope has some well-designed aspects to recommend it. Located on the third floor of a 32-unit prewar walkup, the co-op has an updated kitchen and bath that play nicely with the unit’s vintage details. The front door opens into a parquet-floored living area with 10-foot-high ceilings, high baseboards, built-in shelves and a plate rail. Although miniature, the kitchen is easy on the eyes and has just enough counter and storage space to be practical. It has new stainless steel appliances and wood-paneled cabinets, half with glass doors, and a white stone countertop. This former Co-op of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    After that, we have a single-family brownstone in the Park Slope Historic District that has an extraordinary amount of well-cared-for woodwork and other original details. Inside we see an assortment of motifs characteristic of fin de siècle New York. The mantel in the front parlor features garlands and a mirrored topper. The window and door surrounds have foliate details on the corner blocks and along the tops, and fluting along the sides. And the tin ceilings have a dizzying array of foliate details and diagonal peaks and dentils around the cornice molding. This former House of the Day sold in October for $3.6 million, which was $195,000 below the asking price.

    Finally, in Sunset Park, there’s a two-family brick townhouse with a rusticated brownstone base and incised brownstone door surrounds and lintels. Interior details include patterned tin ceilings, parquet floors, ornate mantels and door and window trim, especially on the parlor level. It’s configured as a top floor apartment over a garden duplex. A former Open House Pick, it did not sell and is currently off the market.
