Grand Park Slope Brownstone and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.7 Million


    Our open house picks this week are exclusively in Park Slope and Bed Stuy. While one of the Park Slope picks is far grander than the other, both Bed Stuy homes offer a slew of charming original details. All appear to be in move-in condition, but the kitchens and bathrooms in two could use an update.

    In Park Slope, this grand four-story brownstone is configured as a triplex over a garden rental with private entrance. A domed skylight brings light to the center stair, which has original oak spindles and balusters. Other intact period details include inlaid parquet floors, fretwork, a pier mirror, four decorative mantels, wainscoting and plaster ceiling moldings and medallions. There’s a combination of in-set lighting and chandeliers, and the large rooms are all airy and light. Both third-floor bedrooms have walk-in closets, and the kitchen, which may need updates along with the bathrooms, is located on the second floor.

    The second Park Slope property is a quaint brick three-family with elements of Romanesque and Renaissance Revival. The home is 52-feet deep and has original details, including pocket doors with more recently added stained glass, some plaster wall moldings, exposed brick and an intact cornice on the facade. The yard is an untouched dirt plot, there appears to be mostly inset lighting and the two pictured kitchens are serviceable.

    Over in Bed Stuy, we have a handsome two-family brownstone, currently configured as a one-family, with plaster ceiling moldings and medallions, inlaid parquet floors, five decorative marble mantels, pocket shutters, stained glass and a general sense of grandeur. There’s a double sink in the master bath, as well as a separate tub and shower, and the basement is finished with a wet bar. Another pictured bathroom has a glass-less, open shower. The yard is stone-paved and appears to get unobstructed light.

    Last up, also in Bed Stuy, a two-family configured as a rental unit beneath a triplex, which appears to be in move-in condition. The original details are throughout and lovely, although the baths and kitchens could use an update. Both front bedrooms have walk-in closets, and a small space more sizable for a home office than a bedroom is squeezed into the front corner of both upper floors. The upper unit’s kitchen is in the rear and has bay windows, while the rental is narrowly fit into a back corner. The rental unit also has quite limited storage.
