    Our picks for open houses to see this weekend are mostly well-restored homes with details and updates in Park Slope and Bay Ridge, plus a promising fixer-upper close to Prospect Park in Crown Heights. They range in price from $1.2 million to $4.195 million.

    A modernized single-family brownstone at 111 6th Avenue in Park Slope has historic details and top-of-the-line upgrades. Among the details are restored plaster moldings, Italianate marble mantels, and floors with ornate inlaid borders. The kitchen in the back of the parlor level has streamlined Italian-modern-style white custom cabinets and a white quartz island. The garden level has been turned into an open-plan living room, and the backyard is built out with a stone patio and bench, surrounded by wooden fencing. Upstairs are two floors with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the latter decked with composite and engineered stone tile walls and floors. The master bedroom features a magnificent original arched plaster niche for the bed. An office and laundry room complete the top floor. The listing also specifies new mechanicals, plumbing, electrical, HVAC and a video intercom. It’s listed for $4.195 million.

    Another brownstone in Park Slope showing Sunday afternoon is set up as a double duplex, with mantels, wainscoting, pocket doors and trim. Located at 488 2nd Street, the house has an angled bay window and rough-cut Romanesque bands. The bottom level has been opened up, and has tin ceilings, wainscoting, exposed brick painted white, and a kitchen with a blue tile backsplash and rustic cabinetry painted white. The carved wood mantels with colorful tile stand out against white walls and parquet throughout the home. The bathrooms are not shown. The house is offered for $2.775 million.

    Then at 441 76th Street in Bay Ridge, a circa 1900 yellow brick row house with a portico and bay window has some street presence. The floor plan and details are largely intact, and include parquet floors with borders, molding, and picture rails in the living room, and decorative plaster work and coffered ceilings in the dining room. The new eat-in kitchen is designed in an up-to-date style, with custom cabinets snugly optimizing space, modern stainless steel cabinet hardware matching the appliances, and the backsplash sporting a woven-patterned tile. Upstairs has a similar customized vibe with bright-colored accent paint colors, wood floors with borders, built-ins, and a bathroom updated with white tiles and vintage-style black and white floor. The ask: $1.275 million.

    Finally, in Crown Heights, a spacious circa 1910s dark-red brick single-family house in estate condition has a shared driveway and private garage. Located at 253 Montgomery Street, it’s close to Prospect Park. A sunroom facing the street has varnished wood-trim windows, a covered radiator and parquet floors. A doorway with a polygonal arch leads to the living room, where a wall of exposed brick has some rough edges and could probably benefit from new plaster. Another polygonal arch leads to the dining room, where the stairs are situated. The kitchen needs restoration and the floors refinishing, but there’s a powder room and an office in the rear extension. Four bedrooms and a bathroom, not pictured, are upstairs. A potential charmer with a little love, this one is available for $1.2 million.
