A Prospect Heights Brownstone With a Pier Mirror and Three More to See, Starting at $1.499 Million


    This week’s open house picks mix historic details and modern updates; three of them have been in the same hands for decades. While some could probably use some cosmetic sprucing to make them really shine, all appear to be in move-in condition, at least going by the photos. Located in Prospect Heights, Park Slope and Bed Stuy, they range in asking price from $1.499 million for a row house in Bed Stuy to $3 million for a brownstone in Prospect Heights. Keep in mind that most open houses still require appointments to be scheduled before viewing.

    Designed by the prolific Brooklyn architect Benjamin Driesler, this circa 1901 brownstone is set in the Prospect Heights Historic District and is just a short walk from Prospect Park. The two-family home is set up with a rental unit above an owner’s duplex and has been in the same hands for decades. The parlor level has original details including unpainted woodwork, a coffered ceiling, mantels, door moldings and pier mirror. The kitchens and baths could use some style upgrades but look to be in fine condition.

    Located on the western edge of Park Slope, this petite 19th century brick home is just under 17 feet wide. It’s a two-family that is in use as a single-family, with a parlor and dining rooms with tin ceilings, a renovated kitchen and a half bath on the parlor level, and bedrooms and full bath above. There’s also a partially finished basement with laundry and another full bath.

    Siding and a 20th century parapet disguise the late 19th century origins of this frame row house in Park Slope. Set up as a two-family, it has a top floor rental and owner’s duplex. Another one that has been in the same hands for decades, it’s had some renovations over the years; the most recent is the garden-level kitchen decked out in eastern white pine. There’s also a new roof and a renovated stoop.

    Finally, this Bed Stuy Neo-Grec brownstone has an entrance with original details, including a pier mirror, newel post and unpainted woodwork in need of a bit of T.L.C. Carpeting hides the floors in a few rooms and the video tour shows the second floor hallway has been tiled; elsewhere some original parquet survives. The single-family is set up as a two-family with a top floor rental over an owner’s duplex.
