Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One in Contract


    This week, a look back to the middle of May to see how four of our featured listings fared on the market, including the former home of a swindler.

    That home with an interesting pedigree is a single-family Queen Anne residence next to Prospect Park that offers grand proportions and original details. At 864 Carroll Street in the Park Slope Historic District, the house dates back to 1887, when it was designed by architect William Tubby, as part of a row of five houses whose facades were designed to look like a single Elizabethan mansion. This former House of the Day sold in September for $4.1 million, $200,000 below the ask.

    Next, a four-story Clinton Hill townhouse that’s been given a luxe makeover that was the subject of an Insider writeup last year. An 1891 Romanesque/neo-Renaissance number with a distinctive limestone and brick facade, it’s at 116 Willoughby Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District. This former House of the Day sold at the end of August for $2.9 million, $250,000 less than ask.

    Following that, a one-bedroom unit in one of Bushwick’s few prewar co-op buildings. It’s on the top floor at 246 Cornelia Street, a four-story, 38-unit building at the corner of Wilson Avenue. It’s got hardwood floors, some prewar detailing and high ceilings. It’s not huge, but there’s a decent amount of space: 590 square feet, to be exact. This former Co-op of the Day is currently in contract.

    And to wrap it up, a corner brownstone in the Clinton Hill Historic District with a number of points of distinction. It’s got two addresses, for starters, with a separate entrance on Vanderbilt Avenue, leading to the lower duplex via the brick-walled backyard. This former Open House Pick sold in July for $2.785 million, $210,000 below the asking price.
