This freestanding Colonial Revival at 60 Hinckley Place in Prospect Park South has the grandiosity of an early 20th century Edwardian house, with a master bath to match. The glass cube shower may not be to every buyer’s taste, however, which begs the question whether the $670,000 increase since it last changed hands in 2016 is to a large extent just covering the previous owner’s renovations.
From the listing, we understand that the current owner did the renovations, which may have involved things like the restored mantel with marble accents and preserved stained glass windows. The kitchen is fitted with a farm-style sink, stainless steel appliances and Caesarstone counters. Beyond that, it’s hard to tell how extensive the work was, though the house appears to be in good condition, with wood floors that look expertly refinished. But the condition of the roof and mechanicals is unclear apart from the mini-split air conditioning.
But it does have a huge garden, a broad front porch, a deck and second-floor terrace. There’s also a driveway, according to the listing. Its generous proportions already put it over the FAR for the lot, so presumably no one will be buying it to tear down. It seems like a nice place in good condition. Charles L. Ruoff at Brown Harris Stevens has the listing. It is a good deal for $2.195 million?
