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


    We’re back once again to take a look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focused on homes in Windsor Terrace, Park Slope and Clinton Hill. How did they fare?

    First up, we have an early 20th century Windsor Terrace three-family that has a striking brick exterior with a hint of Vienna Secession style, rarely seen in Brooklyn. Inside are airy, open rooms with vintage details, renovated kitchens and plenty of space. The floor plans show that in addition to the three units there is a skylit attic space and a cellar with laundry and mechanicals. According to the listing, those mechanicals are new, as are the roof, windows and electrical. There’s only a narrow stretch of outdoor space in the rear, but the house is less than two blocks from Prospect Park. This former House of the Day entered contract in February.

    Next, we have a desirable co-op that overlooks Prospect Park. The unit has an elevator that opens directly into the apartment, three bedrooms and three full baths. It got a modern overhaul after the actress Chloe Sevigny purchased it in 2013, and while most of those design changes remain, the most recent owners have given it a few style tweaks, reduced the number of bedrooms and fully renovated the three baths. Among the amenities in the building are a live-in super, 24-hour doorman, a bike room and storage units. Maintenance for this unit is $3,144 a month. A former Co-op of the Day, it’s still available at a reduced price of $2.85 million.

    After that, we have an Italianate row house on Lafayette Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District that has a striking stone facade and an interior that mixes some original features like plaster details and parquet floors with a modern renovation. The two-family house has an owner’s triplex above a garden rental. In the triplex, the kitchen takes up the rear of the parlor floor and has a wall of glass, quartz countertops and sleek white cabinets. Glass doors lead to a rear deck and a landscaped stone patio. This former Open House Pick sold in December 2020 for $3.665 million, which was $330,000 below the initial asking price.

    Wrapping up this week, we have this 1890s Park Slope brownstone that is lush with original woodwork and spacious. It’s in the Park Slope Historic District, and floor plans show an owner’s triplex with one-bedroom apartments on the garden and fourth floors. The photos show views of just four rooms — as is and virtually staged. Those images do show a wealth of unpainted woodwork, including a pier mirror, wainscoting, staircase and heavily ornamented mantels with original tile surrounds. The floor plans indicate an original passthrough with sinks that might be intact between the front and rear bedrooms on the second floor. None of the three kitchens or 4.5 baths are shown, so their condition is unknown. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.
