Rare Warren Place Mews Townhouse and Three More to See, Starting at $1.695 Million


    Open houses to see this warm and cloudy weekend include a few special places offering a rare glimpse inside such as a townhouse on the Warren Place Mews, built in the mid-19th century as a utopian enclave of Gothic-style brick workingmen’s houses around a landscaped courtyard. Other picks include a standalone single-family house with a garage in the Midwood Park historic district and a Park Slope townhouse that is relatively inexpensive for the neighborhood at $1.695 million.

    While you’re in Park Slope, you can also check out 282 Garfield Place, a circa 1900 brownstone with a large round bay in front and carved bands on the facade. The flowery detail continues on the inside in the form of ornate plaster moldings, medallions and swags in the parlor and a bedroom. The dining room and center stair hall are more masculine affairs with Arts & Crafts style woodwork, wainscoting and beams. The kitchen on the parlor level is in a rear extension with steps down the garden. Upstairs the original sink passthroughs include a dressing room with many closets. It’s set up as a duplex between two floor-through rentals, although the listing notes the ground floor kitchen needs work. It’s asking $2.99 million, the top of our range for this weekend’s picks.

    At 154 Warren Street in Cobble Hill, a house commissioned in 1878 as one of 34 small homes by housing reformer and philanthropist Alfred Tredway White is red brick with arched windows and doors on two sides and a three-sided bay. It been completely renovated inside in a modern vernacular but retains the original entry doors and original staircase — with its attractive details like a luxurious curving railing and rounded balusters — winding through four stories and around 1,400 square feet. This is a rare street-facing one in the Warren Place Mews with a garden on the side. It’s being offered for $2.75 million.

    At 667 East 18th Street in Flatbush, a large standalone single-family home belongs to an approximately five square block neighborhood known as Midwood Park and built between 1905 and 1910 by John R. Corbin, who is said to have pioneered an assembly-line process of construction for what were nonetheless luxury homes of their time. It has a porch and garage, and appears to be in good condition, with lots of woodwork, five bedrooms, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. It’s priced at $1.95 million.

    Finally at 266 11th Street in Park Slope, there’s a tiny two-family late 19th century Queen Anne-style townhouse with 19th century ironwork and lots of florid terra-cotta ornament on the angular red brick facade. It’s set up as a garden-level duplex under a third-floor two-bedroom rental. We don’t see bathrooms or the kitchen, but it seems to be in good shape otherwise, and has inlaid floors and original details such as woodwork, doors, picture frame molding and wainscoting.

    At just under 17 feet wide and about 2,000 square feet altogether, it’s modest in scale but also in price, relatively speaking, for the neighborhood. It’s asking $1.695 million, which works out to be about $850 a square foot.
