Houses in Historic Districts and a Brownstone Brimming With Details to See This Weekend


    Our picks for open houses to see this weekend include three eclectic specimens in historic districts, and an estate-condition brownstone full of original woodwork and mantels. Spanning Park Slope, Bed Stuy, Boerum Hill and Crown Heights, they range in price from $1.8 million to $3.75 million.

    Starting off in the Park Slope Historic District, this late 19th century Queen Anne brownstone is set up as a two-family with two duplexes. Not far from Prospect Park, the house has terra-cotta ornament, rusticated stone and a dog leg stoop on the exterior. Inside, original details include several handsome wood mantels with mottled tile, wood floors with inlaid borders, moldings and original doors. Located at 537 3rd Street, it’s asking $3.75 million.

    In the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, another late 19th century Queen Anne has an eclectic exterior with a wood-clad upper story, brick on the next floor, and brownstone on the parlor and garden stories. Built in 1889 and designed by Amzi Hill & Son, the three-family is set up as a double duplex. Interior details include several carved wood and stone mantels, wainscoting, and other woodwork. It also has a roof deck and air conditioning. It’s listed for $3.1 million and its address is 329 Decatur Street.

    Moving on to the Boerum Hill Historic District, this brick house at 112 Nevins Street was built circa 1853. The petite single-family house — it’s 27 feet wide and 23 feet deep — has an historic exterior with carved brownstone trim and mix of modern and original details inside. The rear has been opened up with steel windows, the staircase is modern and sculptural, and the rooms have wide floorboards. The top story has two bedrooms, one of which is accessible only via the other. There is a bonus room in dug-out cellar, and two full bathrooms. When we featured it as a House of the Day in 2017, it sold for for $2.64 million; now it’s asking $2.75 million.

    In Crown Heights, this striking Neo-Grec brownstone is in estate condition but has plenty of original features to interest an old-house enthusiast. Set up as a floor-through rental apartment over an owner’s triplex, the house has fretwork, woodwork, stained-glass, pocket doors and slate mantels galore. Photos show the floors could use refinishing, and the brick-arched cellar appears to be have a dirt floor. With an address of 1328 Pacific Street, it’s listed for $1.85 million.
