    This weekend we have a group of early 20th century houses to see in Windsor Terrace, Bay Ridge, and Marine Park, all under $2 million, including one under a million. They include a well-maintained 1920s brick row house in Windsor Terrace at the high end, asking $1.6 million. Also on the list are two Bay Ridge freestanding homes — one with unusual loft-style exposed beams on both floors — and two with Dutch Colonial-style gambrels. The last of these is in Marine Park and features decorative crown molding and lots of exposed wood. It’s asking $949,000.

    First up is a 1920s brick row house at 158 Terrace Place in Windsor Terrace that has been in the same family since the 1970s. It has parquet floors — some of it covered in carpet that some may want to remove — and it all looks to be well maintained. The listing mentions several recent updates, including the roof, boiler and hot water heater. The kitchen has also been renovated, although not in the most current fashion, and it has a door leading to a steel balcony with a staircase down to the paved backyard. It has three bedrooms upstairs and a semi-finished basement with washer and dryer. It’s priced at $1.6 million.

    Next, at 639 74th Street in Bay Ridge, an early 20th century barrel-fronted brick-and-limestone row house has well-preserved woodwork, parquet, crown molding, a coffered dining room, and the original Arts and Crafts style staircase. The artist owner has added some rustic-industrial touches such as exposed beams in several rooms, a passthrough to the kitchen, and white-painted exposed brick. The kitchen is renovated and has reclaimed wood floors and shelves, alongside stainless steel appliances. The upstairs bathroom has white penny tile walls topped with turquoise bead board. There is also an attractive rear wood deck and grassy garden. Altogether it has four bedrooms and two baths. It’s asking $1.475 million.

    Then, at 41 76th Street in Bay Ridge, a gambrel-roofed freestanding Dutch Colonial offers a garage, landscaped yard and original details, including a striking vintage blue bathroom. The single-family home has parquet, arched doorways, a sunroom, and an Arts and Crafts style staircase. The circa 1960s kitchen has attractive and simple mid-century modern wood cabinets. Upstairs there’s lots of pink carpeting in the three bedrooms, and the bathroom has vintage powder blue tiles, sink, vanity and tub that all look to be in good shape. It’s offered for $1.25 million.

    Finally, in Marine Park, another gambrel-roofed Dutch Colonial style house is also a detached single-family home. In the same hands since 1989, it features wood floors, stained glass windows, and parquet floors with borders. The front sunroom has a tripartite picture window, and there’s a separate living room as well as a separate dining room. The latter has a stained glass window. The kitchen a built-in breakfast nook and standard Home Depot-style cabinets. These also wrap around the fridge, which is located in a separate pantry. Upstairs are three bedrooms, and laundry is in the cellar. It’s on the market for $949,000.
