A Classic Park Slope Brownstone and Three More to See, Starting at $1.728 Million


    A brownstone just outside the Park Slope Historic District is part of a distinctive brownstone row that blends Queen Anne and Neo-Grec features. Configured as an owner’s triplex over a garden apartment, the building serves up a generous portion of woodwork, including a pier mirror, stair and handsome mantels. The kitchen in the triplex is modest compared to the grandeur of the parlor level but it has plenty of cabinetry and looks to be in good repair. The house last sold for $1.725 million in 2003.

    Located in the Wallabout section of Fort Greene outside the historic district, this mid-19th century wood frame Italianate retains its charming exterior details, highlighted in burnt orange, including a bay window, fish-scale shingles and delicate cornice. The interior of the four-story three-family has been altered and could use some style upgrades, but there are some elegant original features to work with, including two rare period mantels, a stair with curved mahogany banister, paneling, casings and a striped wood floor in one room.

    Moving on to Bed Stuy, a three-family, four-story brownstone hasn’t changed hands since the 1970s and appears well kept, although the listing says “bring your architect.” Its many original features include varnished woodwork, an elaborate staircase, wood mantels with tile, built-ins, shutters and a clawfoot tub. It’s set up as two rental apartments over an owner’s duplex. The detail of the top floor, now covered in siding, can be seen in the historic tax photo.
