Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two in Contract


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

    First, this single-family Colonial Revival house is a little bit — or a lot — of the suburbs stuck right in Prospect Park South, with its siding, two-car garage, lawn, front porch and basketball net in the driveway. 1221 Albemarle Road has no fewer than eight bedrooms — we can’t even imagine what you need eight bedrooms for in a single-family house in Brooklyn, but that’s none of our business. This former House of the Day entered contract in July.

    Next, this condo that’s a true two-bedroom with two baths in a six-unit condo called the Shaker House in Stuyvesant Heights. Carved out of a rent-regulated former tenement built in 1904 at 464 Hancock Street, the 2008 condo conversion included a number of unusual features, such as vintage-style bathrooms and built-in electronic safes in each unit. This former Condo of the Day sold in March for the asking price of $799,000.

    After that, we have this Italianate brick row house in Park Slope that probably dates from the 1870s based on its showing up on historic maps by 1880. It’s a 20-foot-wide four-story number set up as a double duplex. Inside, the front and rear parlors of 418 Bergen Street probably have the most coveted features in the house: ornate foliate medallions, two marble mantels with arched openings — of six mantels altogether in the house — pocket doors, and an alcove with bracketed moldings and a closet on either side. There’s also a small deck off the rear. This former House of the Day entered contract in May.

    Last up, this charming Italianate brick house built in 1869 for Mary Sheldon that’s been in the same family for 70 years. It’s in the Carroll Gardens Historic District (Brownstoner has always considered this side of Hoyt to be Gowanus) and has the curved features characteristic of the fashion and technology of the moment, including the cast-iron railings, arch-paneled double doors, and staircase newel post. This former Open House Pick sold in June for $2.14 million, which was $610,000 below the asking price.
