Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One in Contract


    It’s a new year, but things stay the same around here. Once again, we’re taking a look at four of our featured listings from six months ago to see how they fared on the market. This week, we have homes in Park Slope, Clinton Hill and Bed Stuy.

    First, an attractive Italianate brownstone with a thoughtful gut renovation that opens up the main living space, connecting the original details with modern additions. Designed by Gowanus-based Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design, known for renovations of historic townhouses, it’s located at 359 Bergen Street in the northern end of Park Slope. This former House of the Day entered contract in July.

    Then, we have this condo in the Clinton Hill Historic District has some characteristics rarely found in New York City apartments: It’s a floor-through with a double-wide floor plate and three exposures. In other words, it’s got space and light. It’s located on the third floor of a four-story, four-unit Italianate brownstone at 275 Washington Avenue. This former Condo of the Day sold in September for the asking price of $1.825 million.

    Next, a looker of a four-story brownstone in the Park Slope Historic District that might be described as a “wood palace.” Located at 212 8th Avenue, it’s one of a row of Neo-Renaissance homes built by architect Jeremiah Gilligan, this one in 1894. This former House of the Day sold in October for $4.1 million, which was $400,000 below the asking price.

    Last up, also in Bed Stuy, a two-family configured as a rental unit beneath a triplex, which appears to be in move-in condition. The original details are throughout and lovely, although the baths and kitchens could use an update. Both front bedrooms have walk-in closets, and a small space more sizable for a home office than a bedroom is squeezed into the front corner of both upper floors. This former Open House Pick sold in October for $1.84 million, which was $45,000 above the asking price.
