Top 10 Brooklyn Real Estate Listings: A Standalone With a Pool and a Renovated Brownstone

    by

    The most popular listings on Brownstoner this week include a narrow frame house in Kensington, a barrel fronted townhouse in Windsor Terrace and a massive standalone in Ditmas Park.

    There were a couple of popular listings in Park Slope and Bed Stuy but the rest are scattered across the borough. The least expensive of the group is a one-bedroom condo in Cobble Hill for $675,000 and the most expensive a Park Slope Italianate at $3.45 million.

    Which would you choose?

    10. This building on Pioneer Street between Coffey Park and Van Brunt Street is all about location. It is a half block from Red Hook’s commercial hub on Van Brunt and popular spots like the Red Hook Lobster Pound, Grindhaus and Dolce Brooklyn. There are no interior photos and the only description of the home says that it is a duplex over a garden apartment.

    9. On New York Avenue in the Crown Heights North Historic District we find a very large Renaissance Revival-style limestone. It was built in 1898 and designed by D’Oench & Simon. Despite containing five units, the home appears to have maintained many of its original details including wood floors, arched beams and some fireplace mantels.

    8. Here’s a renovated one-bedroom condo in the beloved Cobble Hill Towers, the 19th century red-brick buildings with distinctive wrought iron appointments that once served as housing for the working poor and now are coveted by a distinctly more upscale breed of buyer. This one’s on the fifth floor at 134 Baltic, which like the other eight buildings in the complex went condo in 2010.

    7. This Bed Stuy Neo-Grec brownstone at 200 Van Buren Street needs some refiguring, but is renovated and features some striking details. “Renovated” often means a flip in this neck of the woods, but such is not the case here — the current owner’s had the place since 2003, and presumably did the work after buying the place.

    6. Here’s a four-story Bed Stuy brownstone that looks to be in good shape, and is set up as an investment property with an apartment on each floor. It’s at 372 Jefferson Avenue, a central locale in close proximity to many a neighborhood fave, like Peaches Hot House and Eugene and Co.

    5. This Ditmas Park standalone at 520 Argyle Road brings a lot to the table. It’s huge, for starters. It’s also beautifully renovated and in prime condition, with a new roof and new mechanicals. It’s got a driveway, a garage, central air, a humidity-control system and choice original details. And it’s got some features not often found in Brooklyn, chief among them an in-ground saltwater pool.

    4. This small two-family frame house on 14th Street has been altered quite a bit, and is something of a hodgepodge, with what may be mid-19th-century details such as door and window casings alongside newer features such as tin ceilings and Deco-era arched openings. Some updating wouldn’t be out of line, and some may elect to treat it as a blank canvas.

    3. Moving to Windsor Terrace, we’ve got a tan brick townhouse with a barrel front that’s hitting the market for the first time in 40 years. A two-story with an English basement, it could use a bit of freshening and upgrading — the kitchens are candidates for the latter, and likely some baths as well. But overall it looks to be in pretty good shape, with a lot of original woodwork and other detail.

    2. This four-story Italianate brick and brownstone number with a mansard roof at 102 Prospect Place was built circa 1860-1880. It’s in prime shape, full of details and elegantly renovated, with new plumbing and electric, new windows, a new roof, a newly restored facade and a pair of newly restored working fireplaces.

    1. This small frame house, on East 8th Street in Kensington, is a mere 15 feet wide. It’s a two-story with a center staircase, with three (or you could say 2.5) bedrooms above. It looks to be in reasonable shape, though it could use some polishing and likely some upgrading. There’s acoustic tile and faux stone, but also details including parquet floors and a stained-glass window transom.
