    This week, we’re going back to the end of May to see how four of our featured listings fared on the market.

    First on the list is a newly built townhouse in Williamsburg that offers top-end finishes, modern design and an expansive single-family living space, for the kind of big-ticket buyer that would have been a stranger to this nabe not long ago. It’s at 138 North 1st Street, off of Bedford Avenue. This former House of the Day is still available with a $795,000 price drop.

    Next up, an opportunity to buy a mews house on much-coveted Verandah Place, the quaint, oft-Instagrammed, and generally beloved row of 19th-century houses that faces Cobble Hill Park. This one is No. 20, a three-story dating to the late 1850s that’s currently set up as a double duplex. This former House of the Day is still available.

    And then there’s a two-bedroom spread in the Standish, the former apartment hotel at 171 Columbia Heights that’s being turned into ultra-expensive condos sporting East River views. The 12-story Beaux Arts building has an interesting history — Superman once lived here, for one thing. This former Condo of the Day entered into contract in November.

    And, finally, a two-family with a garden rental in Prospect Heights, whose kitchen is housed in a rear extension. The bright upper duplex has an open plan living floor and three small-ish bedrooms upstairs. This former Open House Pick sold in August for $2.576 million, $81,000 above the asking price.
