Four Open Houses Under $1.4 Million to See This Weekend

    by

    Our open house picks this weekend are all modestly priced, at least relative to the stratospheric market of the moment. Spanning Bay Ridge, Bed Stuy and Midwood, they top out at $1,350,000, and two come in under the million mark — mansion prices in saner climes, admittedly, but that’s what passes for “modestly priced” in these parts.

    The priciest one, not shockingly, is also the nicest. On Bay Ridge Parkway in Bay Ridge, it’s a one-family limestone with a grand parlor floor and some original details. Upstairs are three bedrooms; downstairs on the garden level is a legal doctor’s office — one of a number of such offices on the block.

    On Madison Street in Bed Stuy is a two-family brownstone, set up as a lower duplex and a top floor rental. Some nice original details in this one, including fireplaces, pocket doors and parquet floors, and it’ll clean up nicely, but it needs some work, including some re-jiggering of the layout.

    Then we’re back to Bay Ridge for a Tudor-style number on Madeline Court. It’s a modest home of unassuming proportions in seemingly good condition, with three bedrooms above, a finished basement below and a driveway and one-car garage in the back, accessible from 68th Street.

    Last up is a freestanding brick home on East 29th Street in Midwood. This one also has two stories, a finished basement, a driveway and a garage, though it’s significantly larger.

    It looks to be in good shape, though unless you’re an old-world grandmother you’re going to want a cosmetic overhaul, from the wall-to-wall carpets and the wallpaper to the wood paneling. Though we might vote for keeping the original Art Deco purple-tiled bathroom.
