Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Three Homes Sold, One in Contract


    This week, we’re taking a look at four listings — including a carriage house that was a former zebra crash pad in Cobble Hill and a spacious prewar co-op in Park Slope — to see how they’ve fared on the market six months on.

    This 19th-century Crown Heights frame house is spacious, well maintained and appears to be in move-in shape. At 994 Bergen Street, it is a two-family now being used as a single residence, on an extra-deep lot, with an 88-foot garden. There are some original details intact, including marble mantels, plaster medallions, the banister, stained glass and crown moldings. The floors aren’t original, sadly. This House of the Day sold in April for $1.65 million, $100,000 below ask.

    This Park Slope classic six co-op has high ceilings, great light, generous spaces and an elegant prewar feel. It’s on the second floor at 305 8th Avenue, at the corner of 3rd Street, a block from Prospect Park. The living room and dining room are large and grand, with original moldings, parquet floors and big windows overlooking 8th Avenue. There’s a good sized foyer and a trio of hall closets up front. This Co-Op of the Day sold in May for $1.655 million, $40,000 below ask.

    Here’s a landmarked 19th century carriage house in a prime Cobble Hill location, at 173 Pacific Street between Court and Clinton. Set back from the street, the former stable has a Romanesque Revival facade, a stone-paved front driveway, two stories and a finished cellar. Suzanne Spellen called the house — which sits across the street from the carriage house Norah Jones is renovating — “a little gem” when she wrote it up as a Building of the Day back in 2012. Among its points of distinction: It once housed zebras when the circus was in town, according to the listing. This former House of the Day sold in June for $4.1 million, $1.5 million below the original ask.

    In Bed Stuy on Macon Street, we find a brownstone dating to 1890, according to the listing. Recently renovated by the long-time owner, going by public record, this one’s got some original detail on the parlor floor, including pocket doors, moldings, window casings and a mirrored mantel. It’s got a four-bedroom, three-bath triplex over a two-bedroom garden rental and a finished cellar. This Open House Pick went into contract this month.
