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


    Another week, another look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Crown Heights, Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Prospect Park South. How did they fare?

    We’re starting off this week with a row house in the Park Slope Historic District. It has sharply angled bays and fanciful woodwork that has been renovated with a unified clean white aesthetic and streamlined kitchen and baths that show off its spectacular mantels, all painted. The 1890 brownstone with a dogleg stoop and rough-faced stones at the base is laid out as a triplex over a one-bedroom garden rental. This former House of the Day entered contract in December.

    Next, we have a generously proportioned and sprightly decorated two-bedroom condo in Carroll Gardens. It’s unusually spacious, in fact, for essentially a floor-through in a circa 1860s Italianate brownstone. The 25-foot-wide volume allows for a second bedroom big enough for a king or queen size bed, with a room labeled the master bedroom here staged as a shared children’s room. This former Condo of the Day sold in October for $1.335 million, which was $35,000 above the asking price.

    Then, we have a shingled single-family home at the corner of Stratford Road and Hinckley Place with an extravagant wraparound porch, gambrel roof and turret. What we see of the original interior details, in this case, include a grand entry hall with parquet, stained glass, staircase and a partition with neo-Classical columns. There’s no floor plan, but we gather that the kitchen is tucked back beyond the dining room. Upstairs are seven bedrooms. One of these spans the front of the building on the top floor and has sloped ceilings with cut-out openings to the turret and another side of the house, making for a grand office or sleeping quarters. This former House of the Day is still available for the reduced price of $2.225 million.

    Wrapping up in the Crown Heights Historic District, we have a home with extensive woodwork, including built-in benches, mantels, wainscoting, door and window frames, built-in bookcases and a wine cabinet. The fireplaces have brightly glazed tiles, and there are three sets of stairs. This former Open House Pick entered contract in January.
