Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One Still Available, One off Market


    It’s that time again: We’re back to take a look at four of our featured listings from six months ago. This week, we’re focused on homes in Sunset Park, Clinton Hill, Williamsburg and Ditmas Park. How did they fare?

    First up, we have a two-bedroom in a Sunset Park Finnish co-operative that has a flexible layout and a renovation that brought back a bit of its original flair. It’s in one of the earliest co-ops constructed in Brooklyn, and is located on the second floor. The floor plan shows French doors between the living and dining rooms, creating an airy feeling, with a long bank of windows spanning the two rooms. The kitchen appears a bit short on modern cabinetry but has an attractive old-school look, thanks to an original glass-fronted built-in dish cupboard, shoulder-high white subway tile on the walls and hardwood floors. This former Co-op of the Day did not sell and is still available for the asking price of $630,000.

    Next, we have this intriguing little Williamsburg wood frame that has been renovated with a cottage vibe, including wide-plank floorboards, tin ceilings and horizontal wood slat walls. There’s a living room, den, kitchen and full bath on the main level and bedrooms and another full bath above. The house is entered through a screened porch off the front garden. A small entry hall leads to the windowed eat-in kitchen, which has an airy feel with a tin ceiling, white cabinets and subway tile, wood counters and an apron front sink. The adjoining living room has built-in bookshelves and storage. The narrow, windowed den is set up as a home office. While the listing notes five bedrooms upstairs, two narrow rooms have been set up for other uses — one as a home office and the other as a walk-in closet. The two smallest of the bedrooms have custom-built bunk beds while the largest bedroom has a horizontal wood wall, wood ceiling and an en suite bath. This former House of the Day sold in December 2020 for $1.559 million, which was $59,000 above the asking price.

    In Ditmas Park is a standalone that boasts a wraparound porch, large rear yard and a garage. Inside it’s got plenty of space with six bedrooms spread across the upper two floors. The first floor has a living room with three exposures, wood floors and stained glass as well as a dining room and an eat-in kitchen. There’s a rear deck overlooking the backyard that includes a playhouse and the aforementioned garage. This former Open House Pick sold in December 2020 for $2.2 million, which was $190,000 below the initial asking price.

    Wrapping up this week, in Clinton Hill we have an Italianate brownstone that has an interesting mix of era-spanning details and updates, including impressive plasterwork, neo-Classical and Arts and Crafts mantels, and modern kitchens and baths. It’s part of a row of just two brownstones, both built in the 1870s, with classic high stoops, pedimented door surrounds and a bracketed cornice. The four-family townhouse is set up as a three-family. It has two floor-through rentals above an owner’s duplex and a cellar. The home appears to have been recently renovated and has white finishes and walls throughout. The plasterwork continues to the rear parlor where there’s a wood mantel and a modern kitchen next to it along with a half bath. A door leads out to a deck with stairs down to the garden. On both sides, a horizontal fence hugs the landscaped garden, which has bluestone paving, planting beds and a deck. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.
