Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Off the Market


    Here’s a look at how four of our featured listings from six months ago fared on the market.

    First up, a remarkable house and a piece of Brooklyn history. It’s the Federal clapboard frame house at 24 Middagh Street that’s regularly cited as the oldest house in Brooklyn Heights, dating back to the early 19th century — circa 1829 by many an estimate. Detailed in a recent Brownstoner story, this former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the record.

    Next, a genuine two-bedroom in Sunset Park, something that doesn’t come along every day. And it’s a nice one, with prewar details and in perfect move-in shape. In a four-story, 16-unit building, it’s well located to boot, right across from the neighborhood’s titular park. This former Co-op of the Day sold in June for $725,000, which was $25,000 above the asking price.

    After that, a completely modern design executed inside an 1880s Park Slope townhouse. The single-family home at 297 11th Street was purchased by an LLC — one of the members is Amy Shakespeare, a principal in SGV Architecture, who gutted and redesigned the home — in October of 2016 for $1.619 million. Not a typical flip, the architects clearly had a strong, modern vision for the home and appear to have taken great care with the project. This former House of the Day sold in April for $3.55 million, which was $129,000 below the asking price.

    Wrapping it up out in Red Hook, we have a modern renovation of a wood-frame home. This four-bedroom single-family row house on Dikeman Street has loads of high-end finishes. The living room has a working fireplace and sliding doors that open to the backyard; the four bedrooms are on the top floor, which is brightened by two skylights — one over a soaking tub. And all of the mechanicals are new. This former Open House Pick sold in May for $2.09 million, which was $160,000 below the asking price.
