After a foray into apartment open houses last week we’re back to full-on houses today, though this being the dead of winter and the market being slow we’ve got three instead of the usual four. All of them are move-in ready, though one is a potential candidate for a makeover. They’re in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Red Hook and Bushwick.
First up, a landmarked limestone with a barrel front on Maple Street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The Axel Hedman-designed 1909 house has been on the market for a while, and we featured it as a House of the Day over a year ago; the price has been cut nearly $500,000 since then. It’s a two-story with three bedrooms and a “semi-finished” basement. A fair amount of space and some choice detail in this one, including intricate crown moldings, four mantels, moldings, wainscoting, pocket doors and marble sinks in an upstairs pass-through. Also, a wild color scheme, which needless to say is reversible.
Next up, a semi-detached wood frame three-story on Huntington Street in Red Hook, which looks a bit drab after the flamboyance of that last one. Actually, it’d look a bit drab under any circumstances, with its flat, aluminum-sided facade and utilitarian interior, though it looks to be in good condition. Measuring 20 feet by 40, it’s got a unit on each floor, with a pair of two-bedroom units above and a small ground floor studio. They can be delivered occupied, for those who want to use this as an investment property, though a one-family redo seems its most likely fate. There’s a skyline view from the front and an oversized backyard that’s said to be “beautifully landscaped.”
Moving over to Bushwick, we’ve got a newly renovated two-story brick house on Putnam Avenue, which was built in 2005. It’s got an apartment on each floor and a finished basement that’s duplexed with the lower unit. It’s a deep one, at 19 feet by 60 feet, allowing for 30-foot living rooms. It’s also, like the last one, not brimming with charm, but it’s in good shape and move-in ready. The upper unit has three bedrooms; the lower does as well if you count a third bedroom sited in the basement, which also holds a rec room and a full bath.
