Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Off the Market


    This week, our look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Clinton Hill, Bed Stuy and Park Slope. How did they fare?

    Our first one this week is located on the top floor of a former shoe factory in Clinton Hill, just across the street from the Pratt Institute. This one-bedroom apartment offers up a few nods to its industrial heritage along with a private roof deck and a home office. An exposed brick wall with arches separates the foyer from the living room beyond. Adjacent to the foyer is a nook set up as a home office with built-in shelving and desks. There’s no window in the galley kitchen but there is a passthrough to the hallway to bring in a bit more light. There are also white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry that holds the laundry. There are more exposed brick walls in the bedroom which also boasts three closets. This former Co-op of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    This next one might only be a project for a brave or experienced rehabber as the once lush interior details of this 1880s Bed Stuy row house are in serious need of restoration. Despite the crumbling plaster and coverings over the floorboards, there’s plenty of detail to be found on the interior, and the exterior offers a fair bit of charm also in need of some attention. Some of the elegant finishes are still visible on the interior, including seven mantels — some of them elaborately carved and with overmantel mirrors — wainscoting, painted woodwork, encaustic tile at the entry and Lincrusta wallpaper. The listing notes the house is a legal two-family but the floor plan shows it’s set up as a five-family, with two apartments with a shared bath on the top floor and one unit per floor in the rest of the house. This former House of the Day sold in February for $1.35 million, which was $100,000 below the asking price.

    Less than one block from Prospect Park, this single-family limestone in Park Slope appears to be in great shape, with original details, modern conveniences and plenty of space. Inside, most of the woodwork has been painted white, with some splashes of color. The slightly elevated main floor has an entry vestibule, living room, dining room and kitchen. Upstairs are two luxuriously spacious bedroom floors, with six bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and an abundance of closets. This former House of the Day sold in April for the asking price of $4.35 million.

    And last, but certainly not least, we have an unusual single-family home with views of Prospect Park as well as its own outdoor space to offer and a rare Park Slope amenity: a garage. The brick and limestone early 20th century house is set in the Park Slope Historic District and last changed hands in 1994. It has a fairly open first floor, dominated visually by a Tudor archway connecting the living room and the dining room. There’s a mix of slate and wood flooring stretching through both rooms, leading to the kitchen at the rear. There are four bedrooms spread out on the upper floors with a full bath per floor. While some of the bedrooms are carpeted, the others show the wood floors that are likely underneath. A detached brick garage large enough for one car is at the end of the driveway, next to the rear garden. This former House of the Day sold in May for $4.3 million, which was $100,000 below the asking price.
