Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One in Contract, One off the Market


    This week, our look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Bay Ridge, Bushwick, Fort Greene and Bed Stuy. How did they fare?

    First up, this prewar co-op in Bay Ridge is nicely sized but modest in its trimmings with a price to match. It’s a one-bedroom on the first floor of a six-story building and is set up with the kitchen near the entry and bedroom at the rear. Built in 1929, it has wood floors and simple moldings throughout. Building amenities include a live-in super, laundry and bike rooms. There’s a waitlist for storage. Maintenance for this unit is $709 a month. This former Co-op of the Day entered contract in October, according to StreetEasy. It did not close and is currently off the market.

    Next, we have a Neo-Grec brick row house in Bushwick. It’s set up as a two-family with a one-bedroom garden apartment and an owner’s duplex above. The photographs in the listing are all of the duplex and show a bold interior with a layering of details from various eras. There are three bedrooms in the duplex, and the garden rental has a living room at the front, bedroom at rear and kitchen in between. This former House of the Day entered contract in December.

    After that, in Bed Stuy, this 1890s Queen Anne/Neo-Grec brownstone has elaborate unpainted woodwork, richly colored walls and slate mantels. A two-family most recently in use as a single-family, it has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a parlor floor kitchen and deck leading down to the garden, and bathrooms updated in the latest style. A glimpse of the backyard in a photo and the floor plan indicates that it is nicely landscaped. Set up as an office, one of the bedrooms has an open and airy feel, with big windows and a glass door overlooking the garden. All the mechanicals are new and there is zoned air conditioning and heating. This former Open House Pick sold in January for $2.35 million, which was $75,000 above the asking price.

    Last up, this Fort Greene Neo-Grec made headlines when it sold for ask and set a neighborhood record late last year. Despite being in estate condition and needing work, it has impressive proportions and stunning original woodwork and tiles. It’s also unusually wide at 33 feet, and grandly located across from Fort Greene Park. Some of the 12 fireplaces in the house have hearths with original tile work and brass inserts along with intricately carved overmantels with mirrors and shelving. There are two kitchens and six bathrooms, and at least some of those bathrooms look more recently renovated and appear in working order. The property hasn’t changed hands since 1984. A former House of the Day, it sold in December for $6.5 million to the founder of footwear company Common Projects.
