This weekend’s open house picks remind us of coming warmer days, including an early 20th century house in Bay Ridge with an above-ground backyard pool and deck, and another nearby with a front porch, both around $1.53 million. We also have a Greek Revival four-story brick townhouse in Boerum Hill — gut-renovated but with classic pre-Civil War mantels — and another early 20th century house in Midwood priced at $1.3 million. Three out of the four have parking, including two with garages.
In Boerum Hill, a 22-foot-wide Greek Revival brick townhouse at 362 State Street with an intact historic exterior and original black marble Greek Revival mantels has been otherwise modernized with minimalist white updates. Its four stories are organized as a garden level duplex with two rental apartments above. The parlor level has been gut renovated and opened up, with only the mantel remaining. Built-in cabinets on either side of the mantel match the white minimalist kitchen, counters topped in white marble with gray veins. A nearly full wall of glass in the rear leads through sliding doors to a deck with steps down to the garden. The backyard is paved in what appears to be pieces of concrete or stone. The bathrooms include one with a glass-enclosed shower tiled in blue mosaic and another with a bathtub, marble-topped blond-wood vanity, and subway tile walls. The ask is $4.5 million.
At 139 84th Street in Bay Ridge, a semi-attached early 20th century cottage with attractive gabled roof has not been renovated especially recently but is seemingly in impeccable condition. It’s got a driveway, a detached garage, and an above-ground pool and deck. The front door opens into a sunroom with a multi-paned bay window. Parquet floors with decorative borders extend through the living and dining rooms. The kitchen has a tin ceiling, extensive cherry cabinets and speckled granite counters, subway tile backsplash, an island and tile floor. Upstairs are three bedrooms and an updated bathroom with an original Edwardian stained glass window and new glass-enclosed shower, built-ins, stone counter, tile floors and tin ceiling. The basement has a recreation room and laundry room. This one is priced at $1.529 million.
Another one in Bay Ridge at 262 77th Street is a large standalone two-family Edwardian. It has a nicely proportioned exterior with gables, bay window, and front porch though it’s PermaStone cladding could potentially need some work. It also has a private driveway. Inside, the layout is a first-floor one-bedroom simplex and an upper-level four-bedroom duplex with a deck. There are hardwood floors with borders and what might be rigid asbestos tile in a few of the bedrooms. There’s a fair amount of original detail throughout, as well as some early 20th century renovations such as arched doorways and shelves built into niches. The floor plan shows two sets of washer/dryers in the basement. It’s listed for $1.525 million.
Finally, in Midwood, you can get a look at another early 20th century single-family house at 1035 East 26th Street. It has a sunroom, brick mantel, parquet floors, original moldings, a dining room with wainscoting and plate rails, and a garage. The kitchen has plenty of maple cabinets and stone counters, and the bathrooms also appear serviceable although not recently updated. The house may benefit from some aesthetic touch ups, such as removing some wall to wall carpet, but the listing says it’s in “pristine condition.” It’s asking $1.3 million.
