This week we’re looking back at four listings we featured six months ago to see how they fared. All of the properties have sold.
This North Slope brownstone, at 212 St. Johns Place — previously a House of the Day — is stately, spacious and in stellar condition. It’s full of original detail that looks to have been beautifully maintained. The four-story home’s owner’s triplex has four bedrooms on top, two good-sized, two small — which could also be treated as dual suites, and maybe ought to be, as the only access to the smaller bedrooms is by walking through the larger.
The home sold in July for $3.6 million, $295,000 under its $3.895 million ask.
Over in Boerum Hill now, a former House of the Day has been given a high-end architectural renovation that’s anything but standard issue, marked by walls of glass and fabricated steel, exposed wooden beams, painted brick and loft-like open spaces. It makes for a beguiling mix of the traditional — the original curved staircase winding past the glass walls — and the modern.
The property sold in June for $4.9 million, $95,000 under its $4.995 million ask.
Next up, an expansive and attractive duplex, once a Co-op of the Day, in fine condition, in a prime Brooklyn Heights building at 2 Grace Court. With a corner location and south and west exposures, it gets a lot of light and offers killer views of the river and the skyline. A pair of apartments combined via a spiral staircase (quite a nice one, in wood), the unit offers something of a townhouse feel, with two levels and a good deal of space. There are three bedrooms — one below, alongside the living space, and two above.
The apartment sold in June for $2,185,150, $64,850 under its $2.25 million ask.
Last up, on Lafayette Avenue in Clinton Hill we’ve got a previous Open House Pick, a four-story, bay-windowed brick number, with a two-bedroom owner’s duplex and a pair of floor-through apartments on top. Any original details seem to have been obliterated, judging by the photos, though it’s possible some are retained on the parlor floor, which, oddly, doesn’t seem to be pictured. (Nor is the small, garden-level kitchen.) Electric and mechanicals have been upgraded.
The home sold in June for $2,185,150, $314,850 under its $2.5 million ask.
