A Collection of Detail-Rich Homes — One With a Carriage House — to See, Starting at $1.795 Million


    Here are a bunch of homes with splendid details — including one with a garage and another with a carriage house — open for viewing this weekend. They include a four-family brownstone in Park Slope with fanciful Neo-Grec window trim asking $3.75 million and another Neo-Grec brownstone in Bed Stuy with ornate mantels listed for $2.395 million. There’s also an Italianate wood-frame single-family in Park Slope with a porch and carriage house in the backyard priced at $2.5 million, and a standalone Edwardian with a wraparound porch and extravagant woodwork in Fiske Terrace asking $1.795 million.

    First, at 84 6th Avenue, there’s a huge four-family brownstone with a rear extension that records show has been in the same family for decades. It has some particularly notable over-the-top window and door trim and, on the facade, a wide bracketed cornice and projecting Neo-Grec features. The few photos show older but still charming wet rooms, and the listing says it’s in move-in condition. It’s on the market for $3.75 million.

    At 118 MacDonough Street in Bed Stuy, a Neo-Grec brownstone with incised floriate decorations on the facade has updated kitchens but retains its fanciful details, including elaborate fireplaces, trim topped with imposing crowns, and colorful tile. The backyard is paved and bordered with planters, with access through a mud room behind the kitchen. It’s set up as floor-through over a garden triplex and is priced at $2.395 million.

    Then, 237 14th Street in Park Slope is an unusual (for Park Slope) early- to mid-19th-century wood-frame home with a porch, wide-plank floors, and a brick carriage house in the rear. It’s 25 feet wide and has four wood burning fireplaces, an elegantly curving staircase railing, and a shiny new kitchen. A horse walk to the side of the house allows a separate entrance to the carriage house and backyard, which has huge trees and a wood deck. The listing says the carriage house has plumbing lines but no kitchen or bathroom as of yet, so ask your architect whether it’s legal living space. The ask is $2.5 million.

    Lastly, in Fiske Terrace at 750 East 18th Street, there’s a freestanding house with no fewer than eight bedrooms. It has a wraparound porch, a garage, and tons of interior details, including unpainted woodwork, leaded and stained glass, built-in cabinets, and a pristine original bathroom. It could use some primping and polishing perhaps, but it something to see. It’s looking for $1.795 million.
