Italianate Brownstone in Park Slope and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $995K


    Our open house picks this weekend offer a convenient road map for those who want to take in all four: two are in Park Slope, one’s next door in Windsor Terrace, and the last is just down the road in Kensington. There’s a pair of frame houses, a brick number and a brownstone; all are livable as is, but some could use a bit of work.

    First up, a four-story Italianate brick and brownstone number with a mansard roof at 102 Prospect Place, built circa 1860-1880. This one’s in prime shape, full of details and elegantly renovated, with new plumbing and electric, new windows, a new roof, a newly restored facade and a pair of newly restored working fireplaces. In the detail department there are marble moldings, tin ceilings, crown molding and plaster medallions (no original floors though, at least in the pictured spaces). It’s a one-family, with the kitchen at the rear of the garden level and a master bedroom on the third floor, with a walk-in closet and a marble bath.

    Next is a small two-family frame house at the opposite end of the neighborhood, on 14th Street off 4th Avenue. This one lacks the grandeur of the last one, but it may be even older, with an unusual partial cellar. It’s been altered quite a bit, and is something of a hodgepodge, with what may be mid-19th-century details such as door and window casings alongside newer features such as tin ceilings and Deco-era arched openings. Some updating wouldn’t be out of line, and some may elect to treat it as a blank canvas; for those, the listing notes that it offers “MUCH room to grow.”

    Moving to Windsor Terrace, we’ve got a tan brick townhouse with a barrel front that’s hitting the market for the first time in 40 years. A two-story with an English basement, it could use a bit of freshening and upgrading — the kitchens are candidates for the latter, and likely some baths as well. But overall it looks to be in pretty good shape, with a lot of original woodwork and other detail and a fair amount of space: around 3,000 square feet. It’s currently laid out with a two-bedroom floor-through on each floor.

    Last is another small frame house, on East 8th Street in Kensington. A mere 15 feet wide, it’s a two-story with a center staircase, with three (or you could say 2.5) bedrooms above. It looks to be in reasonable shape, though it could use some polishing and likely some upgrading — in the kitchen, for example. There’s acoustic tile and faux stone to contend with, but also details including parquet floors and a stained-glass window transom.
