Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Two Sold, Jackie Robinson’s Home Still Available


    We’re turning our attention back six months to take a look at how four of our listings did on the market. All of them have a bit of history but only one is claiming a connection to a Brooklyn notable — a Bed Stuy brownstone that was briefly the home of Brooklyn Dodger Jackie Robinson. The house is still available while two others sold and one is in contract.

    First up is a Park Slope brownstone, at 105 6th Avenue, which could serve as an investment property, with separate units on each of its four floors. Or, it could be converted into a duplex or triplex with a floor or two of rentals — or a 3,368-square-foot single-family home, if you really want to go all out. A former House of the Day, it’s currently in contract.

    Next up, a two-bedroom co-op, in the Flatbush enclave of Fiske Terrace, is attractive, nicely laid out and fairly spacious at 1,200 square feet, with two good-sized bedrooms. In a prewar building on Avenue H, it’s got a bit of detail, and a renovated kitchen and bath. It sold in August for $585,000, $10,000 below ask. It’s a former Condo of the Day.

    Built in 1892, this Romanesque Revival brownstone, located on the edge of the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District at 407 Stuyvesant Avenue, is a serious eye-grabber, awash in well-preserved period detail. It’s got another point of distinction as well: It was briefly home to pioneering baseball great Jackie Robinson. This former House of the Day is still available.

    On Sterling Place in Crown Heights we find a one-family with a distinctive faux-stone facade. This one’s got four bedrooms on the top floor (two of them small), a full parlor and a garden-level kitchen. Not an abundance of detail, but there are some original floors, and it all looks to be newly renovated. An Open House Pick, it sold in September for $1,425,000, $50,000 above ask.
