Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: One Sold, One in Contract, Two Still Available


    We’re back to look at another four of our featured listings from six months ago, with a focus on homes in Bed Stuy, Park Slope and Boerum Hill. How did they fare?

    First, we have a Bed Stuy brownstone with some fetching period details including impressive woodwork, parquet floors, stone mantels and overmantel mirrors. The house comes with an SRO classification, although the listing doesn’t specify if the property comes either with tenants or with a certificate of non-harassment. The images included seem to depict the garden floor, parlor floor and a room on the third floor, and show an impressive amount of original material that looks to be in good shape. A former House of the Day, it entered contract in August.

    Next up, a two-bedroom apartment that has quirky character, convenient built-ins and a private garden oasis. Located on the garden level of a circa 1870s brick row house in Boerum Hill, it is one of just four units in the co-op. The floor-through apartment has a kitchen with a street view, a living room in the middle and two bedrooms facing the garden. The living room has wood floors but otherwise is somewhat spare. Things liven up in the eat-in kitchen with sleek bamboo cabinetry, stone countertops and windows with shutters. This former Co-op of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    After that, we have an attractive Romanesque Revival-style sandstone that mixes a wealth of woodwork with some thoughtful modern updates. It’s a two-family set up as a triplex over a floor-through apartment, and inside, it’s filled with original woodwork, all restored and refinished in a lighter tone than it would have been historically, but the result is details that pop. There’s fretwork, columns, at least one fanciful face carved into a mantel, wainscoting and beadboard, just to name a few of the highlights. This former House of the Day is still on the market for the asking price of $2.998 million.

    Last up this week, we have a luscious brownstone upon which to feast your eyes. This four-story, single-family Neo-Grec is one in a stretch of circa 1883 row houses built by J. Doughtery & Son with angled bays, dramatic cornices and delicate ironwork atop the door hoods. Located in the Park Slope Historic District, it has a prime location just blocks from Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park. The list of original details on the interior is pretty lengthy. There are carved wood and marble mantels, Minton tile, stained glass, bordered parquet floors and woodwork with burl inlays. Mixed in with all that period richness are some high-end modern updates. This former House of the Day is still available at the reduced price tag of $4.995 million.
