Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Still Available


    This week, our look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago centers on homes in Park Slope, Bushwick, Bed Stuy and Prospect Park South. How did they fare?

    Starting us off, there’s a two-bedroom duplex co-op with high ceilings and a smattering of original details. Located at 50 Sterling Place in the Park Slope Historic District Extension II, it spans the parlor floor and garden level of circa 1874 Italianate brownstone. This former Co-op of the Day sold in November for $1.95 million, which was $45,000 below the asking price.

    After that, we have this spacious two-family brownstone in Bed Stuy, a jaw-dropper that offers a motherlode of intact detail, some of it pretty stunning. Built in 1888 and designed by Axel Hedman, it’s located at 364 Jefferson Avenue, on a block known for its historic splendor. This former House of the Day sold in December for $2.8 million, which was $50,000 above the asking price.

    In Bushwick, here’s a two-story, two-family semi-detached brick home currently configured as a three-bedroom duplex below a rental. There’s a two-car garage, a full wall of front-facing windows on both levels, and some plaster wall moldings and window surrounds with shelves throughout. No bathrooms are pictured and both kitchens are large, with enough room for small dining room tables. This former Open House Pick sold in November for $1.2 million, which was $50,000 above the asking price.

    Wrapping up, in Prospect Park South, a grand standalone with original details, a dramatic, two-story columned porch, wraparound veranda and a turret on the side. There’s a sitting room, piano room with porch access, a sprawling formal dining room with coffered ceiling and at least two decorative fireplaces on this level. According to the listing, plans for a shared driveway with the neighbors, which would provide the owner with two parking spaces, are in the works. This former Open House Pick is still available for $2.275 million, which is $120,000 below the initial asking price.
