Four Houses to See This Weekend, Including Three in Midwood and One With a Surprise Out Back


    Midwood seems the place to be for open houses this weekend: three of our four picks are found there. Two of those are big freestanding houses that sit blocks apart in West Midwood; the other lies a mile or so to the south, and is a brick row house. The outlier is in Wingate, on the edge of Prospect Lefferts Gardens; it’s another brick-fronted property, though this one’s got a twist to it.

    On Wellington Court in West Midwood, we’ve got a freestanding house that’s been gut renovated; everything is new in here. Some bold design choices in this one; take the kitchen, with its adventurous tile scheme. It’s got five bedrooms, including a master with a massive walk-in closet, a front porch, a rear deck, a windowed basement with a cedar-paneled laundry room, a large yard and a driveway.

    Very close by on Argyle Road sits another five-bedroom freestander with a front porch and a big back yard. A shingled Dutch Colonial, this one’s got some original detail, including parquet floors, crown moldings, woodwork and stained glass. The kitchen’s been renovated, with cherry cabinets and granite countertops. Condition looks good, and the neighbors are “extremely wonderful,” according to the listing. There’s a driveway, a sprinkler system in the back yard and zoned A/C.

    On East New York Avenue in Wingate, we’ve got an unusual listing: a 20-foot-by-100-foot property with two houses on it, front and rear, separated by a concrete courtyard. Neither is huge, as you might imagine; the front one has three bedrooms and an open plan first floor, the rear one’s got a pair of bedrooms, a deck, a living room, a dining room and a kitchen. The houses have flat brick facades and the interiors are similarly stark, with their baseboard heaters and sheetrock walls.

    The last one, on East 16th Street in Midwood, likewise offers a flat brick facade and a utilitarian interior. It’s a single family with three bedrooms on the second floor and a small eat-in kitchen and mirror-walled living room below. There are 976 square feet in total, a figure that presumably includes the attached garage, which has a door leading to the kitchen. There’s a large wooden deck in the rear.
