A Brownstone With a Circa 1900 Stove and Three Other Houses to See, Starting at $1.25 Million


    Sporting a mix of Neo-Grec and Italianate elements inside and out, this two-family, three-story brownstone at 420 9th Street in Park Slope likely dates from the 1870s or 1880s. Configured with an owner’s duplex under a top-floor rental, the house appears to need some TLC but has original woodwork, moldings, wood floors, pocket doors, tin ceilings, fancy plasterwork, and at least one carved white marble mantel. Budget allowing, there’s space to insert a kitchen and powder room on the parlor floor, moving the rental to the garden floor.
