Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two Still Available


    Another week, another look at four of our featured listings from six months ago. This week, we have homes in Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Prospect Lefferts Gardens.

    We’re starting off this week with a jaw-dropper of an 1883 brownstone that was restored and tricked out with Victorian-style appointments by the guy who literally wrote the book on restoring brownstones — or the journal at least. That would be Clem Labine, who bought this house, at 199 Berkeley Place in Park Slope, over 50 years ago and subsequently founded Old-House Journal (“Restoration and Maintenance Techniques for the Antique House”). This former House of the Day is still available for the asking price of $3.895 million.

    Following that, we two-bedroom co-op has prewar features, a lot of space and a berth across the street from Prospect Park. It’s in Prospect Lefferts Gardens at 125 Ocean Avenue, a six-story building with 65 units built in 1939. This former Co-op of the Day sold in June for $995,000, which was $146,000 above the asking price.

    Then we have a 19th century brick row house with some original details on one of Carroll Gardens’ coveted front-garden blocks. A wide one at 21 feet, it’s at 36 4th Place, between Clinton and Henry streets. This former House of the Day sold in August for $3.017 million, which was $478,000 below the asking price.

    Wrapping up, a brownstone on 6th Street in Park Slope with some interesting features. For starters there’s a fourth-floor addition with a front turret, making for an offbeat exterior (and an interesting interior space with a circular skylight.) There’s also an unusual mix of styles, with a Victorian-ish feel to the detail-filled and period-wallpapered parlor floor and a Zen vibe in the top-floor master suite, which offers sliding Shoji screens, a spa-like bath with a two-person Japanese soaking tub, a large walk-in closet and a balcony with an outdoor shower — a rare commodity in these parts. This former Open House Pick is still available but at the reduced price of $3.1 million.
