Park Slope Victorian With Sauna and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.015 Million


    Highlights of this week’s open houses include a working wood-paneled sauna, a detached garage and a backyard studio, a thoroughly modern renovation, and original details aplenty. At least three, possibly all four of the homes, appear to be in move-in condition, though at least two could benefit from some refurbishing.

    First up, in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, a grand five-story brownstone that could use an update but boasts a number of original details, including stained glass windows, crown moldings and seven fireplace mantels. The single-family has a curving center stair with a dark wood bannister, chandeliers and original shutters. The kitchen has an island, tiled backsplash and is adjacent to an eating area, with built-in wooden cabinets and tin ceiling. A formal dining room has a mirrored wall with diamond-shaped panes. The cellar has laundry, mechanicals and storage. The home has been in the same family for decades and is three blocks from the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains at the Borough Hall stop.

    Next, in Park Slope, a Victorian with plenty of details as well as some renovations with a groovy late ’70s-early ’80s vibe — including a wood sauna. The three-story brick single-family has original hardwood floors, crown moldings, a number of decorative mantels and one wood-burning fireplace in the living room. The parlor-floor eat-in kitchen has a wall of wood cupboards that look artisan made, a white marble mantel, and a door leading out to a wood deck. The deck has a retractable awning and enough room for seating and a grill. At the end of the sizable garden is a detached studio. The working, wood-paneled sauna, located under the deck, can be accessed from inside or out. On the top floor, a bathroom has a skylight, double vanity, and separate stand-up shower and tub. A finished portion of the cellar has a retractable projection screen, cedar storage closets and a home office. This home has also had the same owner for decades. It’s located 5.5 blocks from both the 4th Avenue F, G and R train stoop and the 7th Avenue F and G train stop.

    In Bed Stuy now, a 19th century wood frame has been gutted and given a thoroughly modern new look. It’s a flip being brokered by, among other agents, Ryan Serhant. The two-family is configured as an owner’s duplex over a garden-floor two-bedroom. There’s A/C, big windows, a new wood and metal staircase, white oak floors, and a streamlined white and wood kitchen. Both units have backyard access — the duplex via a deck with stairs down. The house has a new facade of brick veneer and an awning above the glassy front door. The home, which the sellers bought in 2017 for $250,000, is three blocks from the J and Z trains at the Kosciuszko Street stop.

    Last up is a cute little early 20th century two-story in Dyker Heights. The semi-detached house has peaked gables and a brick front entrance. It appears to have been well maintained and updated by its longtime owners but hasn’t lost its prewar charm. A three-bedroom, it opens to a sun room. The Arts and Crafts style staircase has a skylight and there are inlaid parquet floors throughout. There’s also a laundry room, built-ins, a finished basement and a detached garage as well as a patio and deck. It is 11 blocks from the Fort Hamilton Parkway N station.
