Tudor Revival on Chester Court in PLG and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $799K

    This week, a focus on the early 20th century: We’ve got four houses, including a brownstone possibly built in the early 20th century, a 1911 Tudor and a pair of brick houses of similar ‘teens vintage. Two are move-in ready, two need some work. You’ll find them in four disparate parts of the borough: Park Slope, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, East Flatbush and Marine Park.

    First up is a Park Slope townhouse whose Queen Anne/Romanesque Revival brick and terra cotta facade provides considerable curb appeal. The interior is not quite as striking, but it’s still got some nice details, including moldings, original woodwork and decorative mantels. A four-story, its got a pair of 1.5-bedroom apartments on the upper floors, an owner’s duplex with three bedrooms and an additional room off the rear of the garden level. There’s a pair of walk-in closets, a nicely landscaped backyard and an attractive kitchen with maple cabinets, an island and granite countertops.

    The next one is auspiciously located on Chester Court in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a lovely one-block cul-de-sac lined by Tudor Revival houses built in 1911-1912, which makes up a mini historic district. This one is right next to the home previously owned by Madcap Cottage designers John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon, an extravagantly wallpapered number that was much written about and sold a few years ago. We can’t tell you what the inside of this one, a four-family, looks like, as there are no photos, but work is needed, and possibly quite a bit: “bring your architect,” says the listing. Though it’s listed for $800K more than the impeccably renovated house next door was, so it’ll be interesting to see how that works out.

    Next up is a nice two-story with a front garden and front porch on East 28th Street in East Flatbush — “Brooklyn’s new HOT Spot,” the listing tells us. It’s fully and probably newly renovated, but retains some ‘teens-era detail including inlaid parquet floors, moldings and staircase. It’s a one-family with three bedrooms and a finished basement, which includes a full bath and a kitchen, albeit one that currently lacks appliances. (It also includes, somewhat incongruously, a grand piano, at least in the picture, forcing us to consider exactly how they got it down there.) There’s a windowed shed with electricity in the backyard, tagged on the floor plan as an art studio.

    The last one is in Marine Park, on East 34th Street. It’s an early 20th century brick two-story with an apartment on each floor, three bedrooms above, two bedrooms below, each with a living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen. This one needs cosmetic work at the least, though it doesn’t look to be in terrible shape. It has some original moldings and bathroom tile, and who knows, maybe parquet floors lurk underneath all that carpeting.
