A Neo-Grec Brownstone and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $599K


    All in move-in condition with original historic details, this week’s open house picks range in price from $2.625 for a brownstone in Bed Stuy to $599,000 for a brick house in New Lots. They are found in Bed Stuy, Windsor Terrace and New Lots.

    In Bed Stuy, this Neo-Grec brownstone is recently renovated, and standout features include beautiful old parquet floors and stripped slate mantels with incised decoration. Photos reveal updated kitchens and bathrooms with classic white tile and marble. The renovation also added concealed mini-split heating and cooling. Slightly narrow at just under 17 feet wide, the three-story house is set up as a triplex over a one-bedroom floor-through. A parlor floor deck connects the triplex to the shared backyard.

    A block from Prospect Park in Windsor Terrace, this early 20th century yellow brick single-family has an impressive amount of original detail that appears to be in fine condition. It includes an eye-catching porch with white columns and varnished bead board ceiling. The living room has neo-Colonial touches with its decorative fireplace, stair with curving bannister, beamed ceiling and wood floors. Pocket doors lead to a dining room, and beyond is a large kitchen, deck and pocket-sized backyard. Upstairs is a stained glass skylight and three bedrooms with original details. The kitchen and two full bathrooms appear to be in good condition although not recently renovated. The roof and some of the mechanicals are new, and the house is heated and cooled with a mini split system.

    Also in Windsor Terrace is this circa-1890s red brick Queen Anne with brownstone trim and low stoop. A two-family, it has two floor-through apartments, one with a deck down to the backyard. Original interior details include woodwork, built-in clothes closets and drawers, and a petite mantel, possibly originally intended for use with a heat stove. The wood floors appear new, and one partition wall has been removed in each apartment to open up one of the original two small center bedrooms. Formerly six rooms over five, now the house is five over four. Accessible to both units is laundry in the English basement, which also has a door to the backyard.

    An early 20th century brick single-family appears well maintained, with a mix of original details and modern updates. The two-story house has a sunroom, coat closet in the entry and formal dining room. Original details include arched openings throughout and wood floors. Upstairs are four bedrooms, and each floor has a full bathroom. Outside, the house’s original orange brick has been covered with Permastone on the first floor in the front and with siding in the rear. An attractive backyard has a horizontal fence, patio, grassy area and planting beds.

    Keep in mind that most open houses still require appointments to be scheduled before viewing.
