Park Slope Home With Zen Vibe and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.695 Million


    We’ve got four move-in ready houses up for view this weekend; three of them are renovated and in faultless condition, the fourth could use updating for the buyer who’s inclined to do it. Including two brownstones, a standalone and a semi-detached house built in 1990, they’re found in Park Slope, Bed Stuy, Columbia Street Waterfront District and Ditmas Park.

    First up is 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. The house is a one-family, with four bedrooms, a double parlor and a garden-level kitchen — a nice one with mahogany counter tops, a commercial-grade stove and a double farmhouse sink. Details include marble mantels, crown moldings, original woodwork, wainscoting and parquet floors, and there are custom closets, zoned heating and air conditioning. Oh, and there’s a koi pond in the back yard.

    The next one, a brownstone on Macdonough Street in Bed Stuy, is likewise a looker, combining original details with modern minimalism, though the latter is consistent in this case. It offers a garden rental with a triplex above, and the latter is quite a lovely space, described in the listing as “an acclaimed architect’s true labor of love” (the architect being Rafi Elbaz of SAHONYC). In the detail division there are marble mantels, a pier mirror, arched entrance doors and elaborate restored plaster moldings; other features include exposed brick and wide-plank washed oak floors throughout. There’s a sleek kitchen with a marble island and reclaimed wood cabinetry, not to mention new windows, a new roof, a restored facade, a new HVAC system with Nest control, new plumbing and new electric.

    Next up is a compact one-family on Sackett Street in the Columbia Street Waterfront District. It might look a little unexciting after those last two showpieces, with its baseboard heaters and somewhat featureless interior, but it appears newly renovated and will make a nice family home. It’s got three stories and a finished windowed basement, with the top floor holding a low-ceilinged master bedroom and a terrace. There’s a modern kitchen with Caesarstone counters and a subway-tile backsplash, and updated electric, an intercom and new windows.

    The last one is a standalone on Marlborough Road in Ditmas Park, with aluminum siding and a front porch. It’s a legal two-family, according to the listing, but with a renegade layout that includes an apartment on each floor, including one in the basement, which is windowed but may or may not be legal. The interior is unexciting but looks to be in decent shape, with original parquet floors. There’s a driveway and a detached garage, and front and rear yards. The place can be delivered vacant or not, as desired.
