This seven-bedroom Edwardian standalone at 2201 Glenwood Road in South Midwood needs work, but it offers a ton of space and some choice original details, and looks like it could polish up into something quite nice.
On a 40-by-100-foot corner lot, with a porch in the front and a deck in the rear, the house has the generous spaces that draw people out to this neighborhood. The ground floor’s got a grand foyer, large living and dining rooms and an eat-in kitchen of ample size, not to mention a full bath. As for details, there’s decorative fretwork, inlaid floors, decorative moldings, pocket doors, stained glass and a big pier mirror in the living room.
The upper floors offer a lot of square footage with a pair of full baths, a half bath, and seven bedrooms, three with bay windows.
Some work seems to have been done on the house — there are new windows throughout and a new roof, according to the listing from Compass brokers Dan Bentov and Adam Sikorski. The house changed hands in May, for $800,000; it was an estate sale and the new owner is an LLC.
The scope of the remaining work isn’t entirely clear. The listing specifies that the house is being sold “as is,” and mentions bringing in an architect to “restore” it, so presumably there’s no shortage of work to be done; kitchens and baths need updating at a minimum.
The potential is there, though. The price tag is $1.299 million, perhaps an ambitious one for a renovation project out by Brooklyn College. Or maybe not — what do you think?
