Two Flips, One With Details and One Mystery House to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.395 Million


    This weekend we’ve got something for everyone in some of the borough’s more desirable neighborhoods. We’ve got two flips–one a high-end, modern flip, the other more utilitarian in a four-family home. Just to keep the spectrum wide, we a have a historic district home rich in woodwork, mantles, original floors and more. Our last house lacks even a single interior photo. The homes are in Park Slope, Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Red Hook.

    First off is a high-end flip on 6th Avenue in Park Slope. The house is set up as a five bedroom, 3.5 bath owners triplex over a one bedroom, 1.5 bath garden apartment. Its unclear how much historical detail there was to work with in the house when it was purchased by an LLC in 2016, but the interior lacks historic detail. The wide plank floors appear to be new. The walls are clean and white. Even the fireplace is modern. That said, the renovation created a bright, clean, open space with lots of high end finishes including marble counter tops and double ovens. The master bedroom, just above the parlor floor, has a massive bathroom with a shower and tub enclosed behind a glass wall. The top floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The terraced garden, with a large blue stone patio, is surrounded by a high fence.

    Next up is a well-maintained Colonial Revival row house on Midwood Street in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District. It was designed in 1917 by architects Slee & Bryson. The five bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home has details galore in the living room and dining room including original parquet floors, a gas fireplace with wooden mantle, wainscoting, a coffered ceiling, and more. Though small and cut off from the rest of the house in the extension, the kitchen has been updated with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The bedrooms are upstairs — one with access to a large sun room overlooking the rear garden. The laundry and a half bath are in the basement. According to the listing the heat and A/C have been recently updated.

    Our second flip is also in Park Slope — just at the edge of the neighborhood, on Pacific Street close to the Barclays Center. This four-family building is really set up for an investor. The property appears to have been recently gutted and redone with new floors, kitchens and baths in each unit. The home was purchased from the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development by an LLC in 2009. The building is divided into three, two bedroom, one bath units that all have access to the roof deck, and a one bedroom, ground floor unit, with access to the garden.

    Last up is the mystery house. This building on Pioneer Street between Coffey Park and Van Brunt Street is all about location. It is a half block from Red Hook’s commercial hub on Van Brunt Street and popular spots like the Red Hook Lobster Pound, Grindhaus and Dolce Brooklyn. There are no interior photos and the only description of the home says that it is a duplex over a garden apartment. According to PropertyShark, the building is small–16.67 feet by only 30 feet deep but it is on a 100 foot long lot. This home appears to be a great pick for someone looking for a prime Red Hook location who has the budget to take on a big project.
