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


    We’re back this week to take another look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, located in Windsor Terrace, Prospect Heights, Boerum Hill and Park Slope. How did they fare?

    First, in the Prospect Heights Historic District, we have a one-bedroom apartment in a late 19th century flats building located close to Grand Army Plaza. The apartment has vintage flair to recommend it, and it looks fairly recently renovated, with tile floors, wood cabinets and a white subway tile backsplash. There’s also a tin ceiling. The bedroom, located towards the front of the unit, also has a corner window, as well as wood floors and one of the three closets in the apartment. This former Co-op of the Day sold in August for the listing price of $499,000.

    While there aren’t a ton of listing photos on this next one, what we can see of this early 20th century home in Windsor Terrace shows some original detail, including parquet, woodwork and wall moldings. It’s also located just a few blocks from Prospect Park. This one is still set up as a two-family, with a floor-through apartment above a duplex owner’s unit. There’s a glimpse of an original staircase on the main level along with parquet floors, wall moldings and a ceiling medallion. According to the listing, there’s also a pier mirror. This former House of the Day is still available for the reduced price of $2.55 million.

    Then we have a two-family in Boerum Hill that has 19th century character on the outside, a rustic-inspired renovation on the interior and a dash of television fame. The house might be best known as the original shooting location of ‘Talk Stoop’ hosted by Cat Greenleaf, featuring interviews with celebrity guests on the stoop of her house. A legal three-family, the Boerum Hill house is currently set up as a two-family with a duplex owner’s unit over a garden rental. On the interior, the original row house style has given way to rustic flair with exposed brick, reclaimed beams and a sliding barn door. All of those features, along with wide-plank floorboards, are packed into the open-plan parlor level with a living room at the front and kitchen in the rear. The kitchen has a streamlined wood island, metal cabinets and built-in storage that can be hidden from view by the sliding barn door. A door off the kitchen leads to an outdoor terrace. This former House of the Day entered contract last week, according to StreetEasy.

    Last, but certainly not least, we have this neo-Federal house in Park Slope with a decidedly glam modern interior. In the Park Slope Historic District, the semi-detached house is one of a pair of red brick Flemish bond houses designed by Brooklyn architect W.J. McCarthy in 1919. In 2015, the interior got a transformation by Delson or Sherman Architects. The result on the main floor is an open floor plan that stretches from the foyer and its new pier mirror to the dining room in the rear. There are new oak floors with radiant heat, a rebuilt fireplace with a marble mantel from France and vintage lighting fixtures. The original staircase was retained and modified. Elsewhere in the house, original stained glass windows were restored and moved to new locations. This former House of the Day sold in October for $5.65 million, which was $245,000 below the original asking price.
