Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two Still Available

    by

    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Dumbo and Park Slope. How did they fare?

    First, we have a three-story brick-and-limestone townhouse with a Neo-Georgian facade and Arts & Crafts interior. Inside, frothy details like mantels that resemble wedding cakes mantels vie with rugged simplicity in other places, such as the cut stone and wood mantels in the living room. The spacious interior is unencumbered by hallways and a large stairwell, thanks to separate entrances for each of the units. It’s set up as an owner’s duplex over a floor-through garden apartment. This former House of the Day sold in April for $1.925 million, which was $50,000 over the asking price.

    Next, a one-bedroom co-op overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge in the Eagle Warehouse & Storage Building, built on the site of the old headquarters where Walt Whitman edited the paper from 1846 to 1848. The unit has a typical layout with open-plan kitchen overlooking a combination living-dining area, and includes 12-foot ceilings, closets and a lofted storage area. This Co-op of the Day is still available for the discounted price of $1.12 million, which is $100,000 below the initial asking price.

    After that, there’s a stately, exceptionally angular Neo-Grec on Garfield Place. This three-family brownstone had many details, including stained glass and a great deal of unpainted wood work in good condition. We see four mantels (the house has six), a built-in bench with pier mirror and fretwork in the foyer, the stairway, and door and window trim, all original. This former House of the Day is still available for $3.85 million, which is $645,000 below the initial asking price.

    And wrapping things up this week, we have a Romanesque Revival two-family in the Park Slope Historic District. It’s a triplex over garden rental with five mantels with jaw-dropping columns and craftsmanship. Both kitchens are renovated with high-end gear, and it has a third-floor front room decked out with built-ins for a casual office. This former Open House Pick sold in April for the asking price of $4.25 million.
