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


    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.
