    A slew of townhouses in move-in condition, all with historic details and modern updates, are our picks for open houses to view this weekend. Three are in Park Slope and one in Bed Stuy. They range in price from $2.5 to $5.5 million.

    They include a Renaissance Revival townhouse on a 6th Street park block with exceptional historical details that has been renovated with a strong flair for accentuating the ornate woodwork with contrasting light and dark colors, a Romanesque/Neo-Grec with five marble mantels renovated with a lighter touch, and a townhouse with dormers in Bed Stuy with marble mantels and a nicely updated kitchen. A townhouse in Park Slope further down 6th Street offers a striking cast iron window bay and modestly updated interior.

    First up, at 609 6th Street in Park Slope, a two-family yellow brick and limestone townhouse has a parlor and center hall replete with exceptional details like stained glass, a pier mirror, an ornate wood mantel, herringbone floors, and remarkable fretwork screens. In an extension is the brightest, whitest kitchen, with white tile backsplash, white cabinets, and luxurious green and brass Italian range. Other flashy additions include mirrored fireplace tile, a dressing room and a marble bathroom. Set up as a triplex over a garden floor rental, it’s asking $5.5 million.

    At 57 St. Marks Avenue in Park Slope, another quite remarkable Romanesque/Neo-Grec two-family townhouse has carved marble mantels and other historic details, along with radiant heated floors and air conditioning. It’s set up as a duplex over a garden floor rental. On the parlor floor is a large built-in bookcase in the living room, and an open-plan dining room-kitchen with an island in the middle and two doors out to the flowery tree-shaded balcony. It’s listed at $3.5 million.

    A row house at 143 Clifton Place in Bed Stuy has an artificial stone exterior but Italianate mantels inside. It’s also got an updated kitchen and enough room for a large table in the middle with a door to a balcony overlooking a long garden. The updates include new mechanicals and central air. Set up as triplex over a rental unit, this one is priced at $2.45 million.

    Last, at 295 6th Street, close to Gowanus and the Old Stone House, a three-family row house has a striking neo-Renaissance bay. The interior has been smoothed out and modernized, with glass blocks where there might have been a transom or fretwork screen. The kitchen shown in the photos is a modest open plan with Home Depot-style cabinets, but everything looks neat and clean, and move-in ready. It’s asking $2.3 million.
