Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Three Homes Sold


    This week, we’re looking back at four of our featured listings from six months ago to check in on how they fared on the open market.

    First up is an 1885 Park Slope brownstone that is an eye-catcher, full of elegant original details, including seven mantels, loads of carved mahogany and a lovely stained glass atrium at the top of the staircase. It stands amid many of the Slope’s most impressive manses, at 56 8th Avenue between Union Street and Berkeley Place in the Park Slope Historic District. This House of the Day is no longer available as of June.

    Next, another Park Slope brownstone, this one a two-family circa 1899, which offers a fetching blend of original details and modern updating, and is in prime condition. It’s at 510 7th Street, between 7th and 8th avenues, a block and half from Prospect Park and within the Park Slope Extension Historic District. This House of the Day sold in June for $3.25 million, $260,000 above ask.

    In Windsor Terrace this renovated two-bedroom co-op has prewar details, decent proportions and a berth across the street from Prospect Park. It’s in a 16-unit, circa-1917 building at 10 Prospect Park Southwest, just off Bartel-Pritchard Square, at the park’s western corner. This Co-op of the Day sold in June for $820,000, $70,000 above ask.

    Finally, in Bushwick we find an aluminum-sided frame house in need of work. The images show a garden level living room in good shape, with a wood floor and tin ceiling, but elsewhere attention is called for; the house is “ready to be reimagined,” says the listing. It’s a three-story with front and rear bay windows, twenty feet wide, with just over 2,800 square feet. This Open House Pick sold in July for $980,000, $15,400 below ask.
