Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: One Sold, One in Contract, One off Market, One Still Available


    We’re back once again to take a look at four of our featured listings from six months ago and see how they fared. This week, we have homes in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope and Carroll Gardens.

    First up, we have an early 20th century brick house that comes with a renovated interior and a parking spot. The single-family Bay Ridge home has original parquet floors and wall moldings, and the renovated kitchen is open to the dining room. The latter has a vintage style with a coffered ceiling and built-ins with stained glass doors. The enclosed front porch — which has a wooden slat ceiling and a wall of windows — is set up as a home office. There are four bedrooms and 1.5 baths. This former Open House Pick sold in December for $1.125 million, which was $125,000 below the initial asking price.

    In Brooklyn Heights is a parlor-floor co-op apartment with two bedrooms, two full baths, a backyard and a wood-burning fireplace with built-in shelves. The living space of this floor-through unit is placed in a bay, overlooking the street, while the two bedrooms and two baths are at the rear. The living room is open to a kitchen with white Shaker-style cabinets, a white subway tile backsplash and stone counters. There are four closets and an in-unit washer/dryer. With a monthly maintenance of $1,335 and an asking price of $1.67 million, this former Co-op of the Day in a self-managed four-unit building did not sell and is currently off the market.

    After that, we have an 1880s brownstone that has some original details mixed with modern upgrades, including central air. Located in Park Slope, it’s just down the block from Prospect Park. Just under 19 feet wide, it’s a single-family home with two floors of living space and two floors of bedrooms. On the parlor level, the front parlor and hallway have been opened up and recessed lighting added. The original stair has been left in place and there are wood floors, moldings, a ceiling medallion, stained glass and shutters, but no mantel. Through pocket doors is the rear parlor, complete with a carved wood mantel (one of two in the house), more stained glass and some period design touches. The street-facing dining room has wainscoting, shutters and a ceiling medallion. The renovated kitchen has a mix of slab-fronted cabinets in wood and stainless steel with black stone countertops, including on the L-shaped island. The upper two floors each have two bedrooms and a full bath. Renovations to the house, according to the listing, included new plumbing and electrical and the central air. The rear garden includes a stone path leading from a pergola-covered patio just outside the kitchen door through a butterfly garden to a rear patio area with a Koi pond. This former House of the Day entered contract in September.

    Ending our look back this week, we have a move-in ready brownstone that’s on the narrow side in Carroll Gardens. But a renovation several years ago fit in a large kitchen, plenty of bedroom space, closets and built-ins. A two-family used as a single-family residence, it has original interior details that remained after the renovation, including wood floors, original stair, moldings and a marble mantel in the front parlor. In the rear parlor is a modern kitchen with a generous amount of cabinetry, black slate counters and high-end appliances. Upstairs are two floors of bedrooms. The carpeted garden level has been set up as a media room and office space with built-in shelves and desk space. There’s also another full bath and the only access to the outdoor garden space. This former House of the Day is still available for the asking price of $4.499 million.
