This weekend’s open houses are all recently renovated, except one, which is in need of a full gut, or so says the listing. Located in Clinton Hill, Bed Stuy, Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Mill Basin, they start at $719,000 for a cute early 20th century home with parking and go up to $2.625 million for an 1860s Italianate with coveted features that needs work.
That four-story brick 1860s Italianate in the Clinton Hill Historic District needs a full gut renovation, according to listing. The two-family brownstone is situated on a corner lot with windows on three sides and a two-car garage accessed from the side street. The photos show original crown molding in place, tall ceilings and windows in the parlor, marble mantels, wide plank floors and a graceful staircase. Upstairs, one of the bedroom has an arched niche and parquet floors and another has varnished wood trim. No wet rooms are shown. It’s at 98 Gates Avenue, listed for $2.625 million.
A Bed Stuy Romanesque Revival brownstone with arched stained-glass windows is showing on Sunday. A legal two-family, it’s in use as a one-family and has some pretty details inside like an ornate staircase, a recently updated kitchen, tin ceilings, an original mantel and renovated bathrooms with encaustic tile floors. The garden level has been set up with a kitchen in the back, a butler’s pantry in the middle, and a dining room in the front room. The parlor level is split between a living room and master bedroom, with a large walk-in closet with built-ins in between. The top floor has four slightly awkwardly laid out bedrooms and two bathrooms squeezed in. The address is 773 Hancock Street, and it’s offered for $2.1 million.
A bow-fronted limestone row house in Prospect Lefferts Gardens with carved floriate bands and panels on the facade reveals stunning Arts & Crafts details inside, especially in the front room on the garden floor, originally a dining room. Details include stained glass, built-in glass cabinetry, high wainscoting and plate rails, and an elaborate mantel with carvings and dark red glazed tile. A rear bedroom on the second floor sports original moldings, parquet and an elaborate wood mantel with aqua blue tile. Some may find the recently renovated modern kitchen and bathrooms a bit incongruous and generic, but they are classic in style and mostly white. It’s a two-family house, but there are evidently three kitchens, according to the floor plan. At 56 Hawthorne Street, it’s priced at $1.85 million.
Rounding out this week’s open house picks is an early 20th century semi-attached house in Mill Basin. It has windows on three sides and off-street parking. It’s been renovated, and the sunroom, living room and dining room on main floor have been opened up to each other. The dining room has wainscoting, and the floors are parquet on the ground level. The renovated kitchen mixes and matches tan tile floors, gray and white stone counters, a light blue backsplash and dark wood cabinets. Upstairs, the bedrooms appear to be in good condition with their original doors, moldings and hardwood floors with inlaid borders. The bathrooms pictured are also updated. The basement is refinished with wood floors and an extra kitchen. Located at 2044 East 67 Street, it’s on the market for $719,000.
