Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Two Sold

    by

    Today we’re looking back at four listings we featured six months ago to see how they fared. Two homes sold, one above ask; the other two are still on the market. Not to mention, one of the sold homes is back on the market too.

    First up, a three-bedroom co-op, at 478 3rd Street in the center of Park Slope. It has a sensible layout and some nice detail, most notably a large amount of original unpainted woodwork, which lends the place a calm, homey feel. The unit, a former Co-op of the Day, looks to be in fine shape as well.

    The home sold for $1,510,478 in April, $115,478 over its $1.395 million ask.

    Located in the center of Park Slope, at 226 Garfield Place, this four-story brownstone is stately and spacious. Previously featured as a House of the Day, it was restored and renovated in 2006, and combines elegant original detail with modern upgrades like zoned A/C, a dumbwaiter, and a cooled wine cellar in the basement. Set up as a one-family, it’s looking for the big-ticket buyer who can fill nearly 4,400 square feet of living space, not to mention carry a house with a hefty price tag without rental income.

    The property is still listed for $4,999,999, a $500,001 reduction from its previous $5.5 million ask.

    This barrel-fronted brick number on Dewey Place in Bed Stuy — an Open House Pick six months ago — is a flip, fully redone, with a three-bedroom duplex above and a two-bedroom garden rental. There’s also a two-bedroom “hospitality basement space for additional living,” which includes a kitchen. Not that you would ever (wink, wink) think of putting a tenant or an Airbnb’er down there.

    The home is still listed for $939,000, a $261,000 reduction from its previous $1.2 million ask.

    This prime specimen, on Lincoln Road in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, is a landmarked three-story, four-bedroom brownstone loaded with gorgeous restored detail — mantels, pocket doors, inlaid parquet floors, pier mirrors, wedding-cake plaster ornament, wainscoting and carved woodwork. Previously an Open House Pick, the home was purchased for its $2.1 million asking price in April by MacArthur Genius Grant winner Ta-Nehisi Coates, but he put it back on the market after various media outlets revealed the address.

    The property is now listed for $2.295 million, $195,000 above its previous sale price.
