Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Two Homes Sold


    This week, we took a look back at four homes we featured six months ago, including a Park Slope townhouse with a jaw-dropping interior by Roman & Williams and a renovated brick row house in Greenpoint.

    This stately 1910 limestone is in beautiful shape, with well-preserved original details and some eye-popping updates. It’s at 542 3rd Street, smack in the center of Park Slope, and a block and a half from Prospect Park. It’s got a center staircase and a double parlor, with the kitchen housed in a rear extension. Parlor details include columns, a pair of mantels, a columned pier mirror, crown moldings, ceiling medallions, and inlaid parquet floors; the dining room sports a coffered ceiling, wainscoting and built-in china cabinets. This House of the Day sold in July for $4 million, $750,000 below ask.

    Here’s a Park Slope townhouse with a jaw-dropping interior whose fame rivals that of its occupants past and present. A 19th century Italianate at 178 Garfield Place, it was widely photographed, blogged about and drooled over when it belonged to J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons, who sold it in 2013. The buyers were Depeche Mode and Erasure founder Vincent Clarke and Tracy Martin, chief executive of the recently shuttered Morbid Anatomy Museum, who had it redone by Roman & Williams. This House of the Day is no longer available as of June.

    This prewar Prospect Heights two-bedroom co-op is gracious and attractive, with generous spaces and a functional layout. It’s on the second floor of a 78-unit elevator building at 175 Eastern Parkway, a worthy location directly across the street from the Brooklyn Museum. The apartment holds nearly 1,000 square feet of space, split between a living/dining room, small kitchen, single bath, and two good-sized bedrooms with decent sized closets. This Co-Op of the Day sold in April for $975,000, $80,000 above ask.

    Last stop is Vandervoort Avenue, in an industrial stretch of Greenpoint, where we find a brick row house that’s been thoroughly renovated, apparently by a homeowner rather than an LLC. It’s a two-story, with an open plan lower floor and an upper floor that’s split into numerous small spaces including four bedrooms, an office space and two baths. This Open House Pick is longer available as of June.
