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


    We’re back again this week to look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, including homes in Bay Ridge, Windsor Terrace and Marine Park. How did they fare?

    First, located on the first floor of a 1920s brick co-op in Bay Ridge, this one-bedroom apartment has a practical layout and some modern upgrades. The listing notes the unit has been renovated “down to the studs.” The general layout looks close to original, with rooms leading off a foyer. The living room and kitchen are grouped together on one end, and the bedroom on the other. This former Co-op of the Day entered contract in September.

    Next, we have a compact single-family house that was built in the 1920s when Brooklyn farmland was giving way to neat rows of houses with modern amenities. Located in Marine Park, it still has some of its period charm along with a garage and off-street parking. The first floor has a small foyer, a living room, dining room and kitchen. There’s a wood-burning corner fireplace in the living room, and parquet floors with inlay trim stretch into the dining room. This former House of the Day is still available for $660,000, which is $9,000 below the initial asking price.

    There’s room to spread out in our next featured listing, an early 20th century brick row house in Bay Ridge that has curb appeal and some period details remaining on the interior. The latter includes parquet floors with inlay borders and an original stair in the entry. The wood floors continue into the living and dining rooms, which both also have built-ins and picture rail molding. There’s a bit of fretwork in the doorway to the dining room, which also has a coffered ceiling. This former House of the Day sold in August for $1.225 million, which was $25,000 below the asking price.

    And finally, in Windsor Terrace we find a modest early 20th century brick house that has a porch for chatting with the neighbors, some period details and modern updates. Located just a few blocks from Prospect Park, the house retains the original exterior and some characteristic details on the interior. The first floor is arranged with a central stair, a living room at the front, and a dining room and kitchen at the rear. There are parquet floors with inlay, stained glass windows, unpainted wood door and window trim, and an Arts and Crafts-style stair with paneling. In the dining room, there’s a glimpse of a delicate plaster medallion on the ceiling but there’s also modern recessed lighting installed throughout the first floor. This former House of the Day sold in August for the asking price of $2.25 million
