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


    We’re back on another cold winter week to take a look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focused on homes in Flatbush, Clinton Hill, Park Slope and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. How did they fare?

    First up, we have this early 20th century Flatbush limestone that is in the East 25th Street Historic District. Built as a single-family by the Henry Meyer Company like its neighbors on the block, this three-bedroom house has a fair bit of detail intact, including unpainted woodwork, stained glass and a mantel. The dining room has built-ins, wainscoting and a coffered ceiling. The house has a renovated galley kitchen on the parlor floor that leads to a windowed addition holding the laundry, a half bath and a sunroom. This former Open House Pick sold in January for $1,272,500, which was $22,500 below the initial asking price.

    Next up, this three-bedroom in Park Slope occupies the second floor of a late 19th century flats building. Spacious, it is renovated with a clean white palette and still maintains a few original features, most notably the layout. There’s a living room in the front bay with a home office alongside, a kitchen in the rear, and bedrooms running along one side, including two around a central light well. Converted to condos in 2013, the four-unit walk-up building is self managed and does not allow pets. This unit has $581 in common charges and $245 in taxes a month. This former Condo of the Day entered contract in January.

    In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is an early 20th century bow-fronted row house. A three-family, it’s currently set up as a duplex over a two-bedroom garden rental. There’s some original detail on the parlor level, including fretwork, stained glass and a pier mirror. There’s a columned wood mantel in the dining room, which is partially open to a galley kitchen that can only be glimpsed in the listing photos but appears to have fairly standard white cabinets and a tile floor. This former Open House Pick entered contract in October 2020.

    Last up, we have a Clinton Hill carriage house located in the historic district. The legal two-family house, currently in use as a three-family, has a flexible layout, a garage and three kitchens. The owner, a painter, uses part of the garage as a studio space and lives in a duplex that takes up part of the first and second floors. The unit has some bohemian flair with high ceilings, wood floors, a wood slat ceiling and a spiral staircase. It’s got a bedroom with wooden shutters and built-ins and a bathroom with Art Deco tub and tile. Another unit on the second floor has two bedrooms and is accessed by the carriage house’s main stairway. According to the listing, the property will be delivered vacant. This former House of the Day was transferred to an LLC in December for $0 and is currently off the market.
