Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: One Sold, One Still Available and One Off the Market


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

    Starting us off, a Bed Stuy brownstone that has charm and a bounty of original detail in fine shape — including an original icebox in an upstairs hallway. It’s at 566 Jefferson Avenue in Stuy Heights, right off Lewis Avenue. This former House of the Day did not sell and is off the market. (Broker Ban Leow tells us it will be relisted soon.)

    Following that, we have another Bed Stuy brownstone, this one with numerous points of distinction. At 5 Arlington Place, it dates to circa 1887, built in the Renaissance Revival style by the prominent 19th century architect George P. Chappell. It’s next door to the “Crooklyn” house at 7 Arlington, made famous as the family domicile in Spike Lee’s movie (and now a gorgeous bed and breakfast). This former House of the Day entered contract in January.

    Then we have a stunning three-bedroom condo sits in one of the Slope’s most distinctive properties — the Tracy Mansion, a neo-Classical marble palazzo built in 1912 for a tugboat mogul at 105 8th Avenue. This former Condo of the Day is still on the market, but for a reduced price of $3.85 million.

    And wrapping it up, a brick townhouse with a bay front on 12th Street in Park Slope. It’s been shorn of much of its detail and is a little unexciting, but on the plus side it’s completely renovated and looks to be in top shape. This former Open House Pick sold in December for $2.4 million, which was $105,000 above the asking price.
