Colonial Revival in Crown Heights and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.25 Million


    Like the snowflakes that may fall on us tomorrow, no two of our open house picks are alike. There’s a grand Bed Stuy brownstone in need of an overhaul, a landmarked Crown Heights house that’s newly renovated, a rental property in Bed Stuy that awaits vision and a condo-sized brick house in Windsor Terrace that’s move-in ready. They start at $1.25 million and top out at $2.895 million.

    We start on Prospect Place in Crown Heights, where we find a three-story, semi-detached landmarked house with a columned front porch and upper balcony, designed by Axel Hedman and built circa 1907. A two-family with a duplex over a rental, it looks to be newly restored/renovated, with updated plumbing and electrical and original details including mahogany woodwork, pocket doors, inlaid parquet floors, the original center staircase (with a landing bench at the bottom), wainscoting and several tiled mantels. On the downside, the kitchens, which sit in a rear extension, are small and underwhelming, nearly outsized by the massive walk-in closet near the duplex’s master bedroom.

    Next up, an aluminum-sided four-story on Pulaski Street in Bed Stuy that comes billed as “the perfect blank canvas,” with “great bones.” It’s set up with an apartment on each floor, though it’s a legal two-family, so the next owner’s going to need either a new certificate of occupancy or a new configuration. The interior is on the drab side but looks to be in okay shape, and there’s a smattering of original detail including parquet floors and door and window casings.

    Staying in Bed Stuy, we’ve got a three-story brownstone on Monroe Street that’s new to the market, has seen better days and is in need of restoration and renovation. The listing calls it “early 19th century,” which seems about a century off, but its claim that the place holds some prime details is on target: it’s got pocket doors, fretwork, a pier mirror, crown moldings and at least one mantle. Plus, there may be parquet floors underneath that aged linoleum. It’s 20 feet wide and currently configured as a one-family.

    Last up, a two-story brick house with a front porch on 19th Street in Windsor Terrace that’s on the generic side, but in move-in shape. It’s a small one, under 1000 square feet in total, not counting the basement. It’s got a pair of bedrooms and a full bath upstairs; below is a living room and a small kitchen with oak cabinetry and room for a breakfast table. There’s a full bath in the basement, along with a washer and dryer and a new tankless hot water heater. There’s central air and a good-sized concreted yard in back.
