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


    We’re back to look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Boerum Hill, Park Slope, Sunset Park and Sea Gate. How did they fare?

    Starting off this week, we have an unusually wide brownstone in Boerum Hill with original gold-veined black marble mantels popular in mid-19th century Greek Revival residences. On the market for the first time since at least 1973, it features nice details like wide plank floors in the rear parlor, crown molding, and tin ceilings in addition to the mantels. It’s configured as a triplex with an artist’s studio (or master suite) over a garden one-bedroom apartment. This former House of the Day sold in January for $3.515 million, which was $285,000 below the asking price.

    Next, we have a compact two-bedroom co-op in a Rosario Candela-designed prewar elevator building facing Grand Army Plaza. The apartment is a modest affair accented with a few fine finishes and light from three exposures. The entry foyer with a coat closet passes a renovated galley-style kitchen outfitted with extensive cherry cabinets, white counters, subway tile and stainless steel appliances. A place for a breakfast table is staged here with a small writing desk in the window. This former Co-op of the Day was taken off the market and leased, the agent told Brownstoner.

    Then we have a three-story townhouse in Sunset Park that has street character and an unusual amount of well-preserved original details on the interior. The house is configured as a floor-through apartment over a garden-and-parlor-level duplex. Without a floor plan, it’s fairly confusing, but based on the description and what we can see of the layout, it appears to be an original two-family. The main rooms have wood mantels featuring columns, brackets, tiles, mirrors and shelves. Some are painted, as in the front parlor, while others have the original unpainted wood, as in the former rear parlor. This former House of the Day sold in December for $1.5 million, which was $55,000 below the asking price.

    An early 20th century standalone in Sea Gate wraps things up this week, a legal two-family with a second kitchen and terrace on the third floor, but it’s currently being used as a single-family. There’s parquet and a brick fireplace on the ground floor. The wet rooms might benefit from some cosmetic updates, but it looks to be in good shape. This former Open House Pick sold in January for $836,000, which was $63,000 below the asking price.
