Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Three Sold, One for Over Ask

    by

    This week we’re looking back at four listings we featured six months ago to see how they fared. Three of the properties sold, with one going for over ask.

    If it’s grandeur and opulence you’re after, look no further than this former House of the Day, a palatial Romanesque Revival brownstone, at 838 Carroll Street in Park Slope. Dubbed the Remington House, after the initial owner, who commissioned the house from architect C.P.H. Gilbert in the late 1880s, it’s got rich detail, acres of space, architectural distinction, a curved bay tower, and a price tag of $15 million.

    The property is still on the market with the same $15 million ask, which is close to the all-time Brooklyn townhouse record.

    This brick townhouse, at 16 Butler Street in Cobble Hill, might look ordinary at first glance but its age and style are unusual. Previously a House of the Day, it could be one of the oldest structures in Cobble Hill, and it’s received an eclectic redesign by an architect that mixes period detail and modern updates. The listing calls the house “Federal,” and while it may in fact be Greek Revival, it appears to predate the Civil War in any case.

    The home sold in July for $3.75 million, $700,000 over its $3.5 million ask.

    This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is part of Clermont Greene, a luxury 74-unit condo building in Fort Greene that was once a Listing of the Day. The condo features nine-foot ceilings, Brazilian teak floors, and large windows. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment, and the master bedroom has its own separate bathroom with both a bathtub and a huge stand-up shower. The kitchen has new appliances, including a dishwasher and built-in microwave, and the unit comes with its own washer and dryer.

    The unit sold in May for $1.16 million, $35,000 under its $1.195 million ask.

    Last up, a Queen Anne and former Open House Pick in the Crown Heights North Historic District that features a bonanza of ornate original woodwork (including a grand center staircase), not to mention some nice plaster detailing. There’s a nice exterior on this one, with gabled dormers and a mansard roof — the facade needs some sprucing up, though. This one’s a single-family, with a six-bedroom triplex up top.

    The home sold in July for $2.16 million, $90,000 under its $2.25 million ask.
