A Tudor Revival in Flatbush and Three More to See, Starting at $1.499 Million


    This weekend’s open houses are all move-in ready and three of them retain some period details alongside the modern upgrades. Located in Cobble Hill, Flatbush, Greenwood Heights and Kensington, they range in asking from $1.449 million for a semi-detached brick number in Kensington to $3.495 million for a mid 19th century brick house in Cobble Hill. Keep in mind that most open houses still require appointments to be scheduled before viewing.

    Up first is a mid 19th century single-family house in the Cobble Hill Historic District. The two-story brick house is unusually wide at 31 feet and has central air, which sounds appealing in the current heat wave. The first floor has parquet floors, a wood burning fireplace in the parlor and a renovated kitchen with yellow cabinets and a tin ceiling. Up the central staircase with original newel post and curved rail are two bedrooms, another wood burning fireplace, a full bath and access to a roof deck with an irrigation system. (There is no backyard.) The cellar, which appears to be below grade, has an office space, laundry and a full bath.

    This Flatbush home has the exterior details that give Tudor Revival homes such curb appeal, including half timbering, patterned brickwork and a steeply peaked gable. The standalone single-family home fills most of the lot, with room for petite gardens in the front and rear. It was on the market just last year when it was featured as a House of the Day. It sold the same year for $1.474 million. Already renovated with refinished parquet floors, a new kitchen and new baths, the interior has since had a few more design tweaks, including carving space out of one of the four bedrooms to create an en suite bath for the master bedroom.

    This late 19th century wood frame lost its original decorative details decades ago but the grey siding gets a bit of pop from a bright yellow door. The Greenwood Heights single family has an open plan first floor with living room and renovated kitchen. Upstairs are two bedrooms and one of 2.5 bathrooms. There’s a tiered deck in the rear with planters and a custom climbing wall.

    Finally, this early 20th century brick home in Kensington looks neat as a pin inside and out. The semi-detached house is at the end of a row of identical dwellings with columned front porches and deep cornices with oversized brackets. This one retains its roof shape but has lost its original red tiles. Inside are parquet floors, a coffered ceiling in the dining room and a renovated kitchen.
