Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: One Sold, One Still On the Market

    by

    This week, we’re looking back to warmer weather to see how four of our featured listings from mid-June fared. There were some interesting picks among the bunch, including a Park Slope home with some original 19th century details and an enormous 10-bedroom house in Prospect Park South that would be a perfect fixer-upper for the right deep-pocketed buyer.

    A former House of the Day, this Romanesque Revival number at 44 Montgomery Place in Park Slope is quite the grand residence, designed in 1881 by C.P.H. Gilbert on a distinguished park block. It’s got some sweet details intact, including inlaid floors, moldings, woodwork, cabinetry, pocket doors and stained glass. (There’s also an original clawfoot tub in a third-floor bathroom.) The home is still on the market, priced at $4.5 million, a reduction of $300,000.

    The second listing was a rare opportunity for someone not afraid to roll up their sleeves. On Marlborough Road in Prospect Park South, it’s a striking 10-bedroom stand-alone house with a wraparound porch that offers some 6,000 square feet of faded glory, in need of restoration and updating. A former House of the Day, it sold in December for its asking price of $2.35 million.

    This two-bedroom unit offers a distinctive space, with multiple tiers, high and angled ceilings, and jutting exposed girders. It’s on the top floor of a converted schoolhouse, at 174 Pacific Street in Cobble Hill. The living space is open plan and a bit loft-like, with a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a handful of skylights, and a newly redone kitchen, whose counter sits almost level with the floor of the elevated living room. The wall of exposed brick with the arched cutout adds some extra flair. This former Condo of the Day was taken off the market in August.

    In Kensington on East 9th Street, we’ve got a two-story rowhouse that’s pitched as an investment property. While you wouldn’t guess it by a look at the facade, it’s a deep house with four units within, two one-bedrooms and a pair of two-bedrooms. It could use some updating. A former Open House Pick, it was taken off the market in November.
