Updated Fort Greene Neo-Grec Brownstone and Other Open Houses to See, Starting at $1.1 Million


    This week’s open house picks are Victorian townhouses in various states of improvement, ranging in price from a bay-fronted brick two-family in Crown Heights asking $1.1 million to a five-story Neo-Grec brownstone in Fort Greene listed for $3.695 million.

    A narrow and tall Neo-Grec/Anglo-Italianate brick townhouse 139 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene has a central staircase that knocks your socks off, with its built-in niche, angled flights and abundance of turned newels — and the rest isn’t bad either. The layout is a quadraplex over a floor-through rental. Features include built-ins, mantels, two woodburning fireplaces, plaster moldings, contemporary updates in the kitchens and bathrooms, and a nice deck and landscaped backyard. Asking $3.695 million, it’s not showing in an open house this weekend but on Thursday and next Sunday.

    Also on view in a Sunday open house is 63 Joralemon Street, a brick Greek Revival in Brooklyn Heights set up as two duplexes. It lacks the original details of the above, but benefits from a kind of charming rusticity, with its mid 20th century brick fireplaces and evidence of various late renovation. (The double-height living room in the upper duplex was the height of fashion in the ’60s and ’70s.) It appears to be in move-in condition–judging only by photos. It’s offered for $3.65 million.

    Another Sunday afternoon open house is happening in Park Slope at 312 10th Street, a three-story Italianate/Neo-Grec brick townhouse with carved marble mantels, a sunroom in a rear extension, and a kitchen that has been recently updated with high-end appliances, a jazzy tile backsplash, and Shaker-style cabinets. The listing mentions more details on the parlor level, currently configured as bedrooms, as well as new mechanicals. This is listed at $2.5 million.

    Finally, this Saturday and Sunday, a circa 1900 Neo-Renaissance brick two-family house at 1380 Park Place in Crown Heights consists of two nearly identical floor-through apartments with details like wall moldings, tin ceilings, door trim and pocket doors in evidence. The kitchen pictured dates from the 1970s. Most of the photos say they are “virtually staged”; some updating may be required. This one is priced at $1.1 million.
