Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One Still Available, One Off the Market


    Another week, another look at four of our featured listings from six months ago. This week, we have homes in Park Slope, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights and Bed Stuy. How did they fare?

    First up, a grand brownstone that doesn’t look a whole lot different than it did a century ago, give or take the kitchens and baths. Built in 1903 by architect Benjamin Driesler, it’s a Renaissance Revival with a bowed front bay at 616 2nd Street, in the Park Slope Historic District and half a block from Prospect Park. This former House of the Day is still on the market for the asking price of $3.9 million.

    After that, we have a condo with uncommon grandeur and a distinctive address. It occupies the parlor and garden floors of an 1882 Neo Grec mansion on Clinton Hill’s Mansion Row, at 313 Clinton Avenue, written up here as a Building of the Day. This former Condo of the Day sold in May for $2.75 million, which was $100,000 above the asking price.

    Then we have a Renaissance Revival brownstone in Prospect Heights that has a load of original detail in prime condition and a good deal of charm. Built by the prolific developer William H. Reynolds circa 1894, it’s at 301 Park Place, in the Prospect Heights Historic District. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    Last up, a 19th-century brick Italianate on Park Avenue in Bed Stuy. This one likewise needs updating throughout, and likewise has some detail, though significantly less: a marble mantel, an original staircase. There’s some vintage wallpaper as well, though it’s not anything you’re likely to want to hold onto. It’s a three-story with a rental on the garden level and a three-bedroom, one-bath duplex above. This former Open House Pick sold in July for $875,000, which was $123,000 below the asking price.
