A Redone Brownstone With Original Details and Three Other Houses to See, Starting at $1.5 Million


    This weeks’s open house picks are all 19th century row houses, ranging from a brick townhouse in Carroll Gardens with mostly mid-20th century updates asking $3.499 million to a Romanesque Revival brownstone in Bed Stuy with ornate terra cotta panels on the facade looking for $1.5 million.

    In Carroll Gardens, a brick townhouse that most likely dates from the Italianate period has deep front and rear gardens. The tidy exterior’s flat brownstone lintels and bracketed door hood could have been shaved and simplified over the years. It is set up as an owner’s duplex sandwiched between a garden-floor and top-floor rental. While the house appears to be in move-in condition, at least in the photos, it doesn’t appear to have been recently updated, and little original detail remains. With five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, it’s asking $3.499 million.

    In Windsor Terrace, an original two-family townhouse is Renaissance Revival with its limestone facade, foliate friezes, and three-sided bay. Part of a long row whose bays alternate between polygonal and rounded, the house is laid out as a floor-through apartment over an owner’s duplex. It appears to be in good condition, with some original details like wainscoting, pier mirrors, mantels, classical columns, moldings and medallions. The garden floor has some unfortunate alterations, however, and the house does not appear to have been recently renovated. It has altogether four bedrooms and three bathrooms and is listed at $2.55 million.

    On Bainbridge Street in Bed Stuy, there’s a newly renovated Romanesque Revival townhouse with a rough stone facade and arched windows and door hood. A flip owned by an LLC, it is extensively renovated and has air conditioning and new floors, but also many original details. There is ornate woodwork (all painted white), original mantels and pocket doors. It’s set up as a duplex over a garden-level two-bedroom floor through, and has altogether seven bedrooms and three bathrooms. it’s priced at $1.695 million.

    Finally, also in Bed Stuy but on Macon Street, check out this Renaissance Revival townhouse with elaborate terra cotta reliefs on the facade and embellished cast iron railings. It’s got a lot of original detail inside, including five mantels (one with an onyx surround), stained glass, wood shutters, an ornate staircase that could use restoration, picture railings, molding, and bordered parquet floors. The backyard is dominated by a basketball court. A three-family consisting of three floor-through apartments, it could probably use a bit of polish, although one of the kitchens appears recently redone. With a total of five bedrooms and four bathrooms, it is asking $1.5 million.
