Four open houses on the sparser end in terms of historical detail are showing this Sunday, with prices starting at $840,000 in Midwood and going up to $3.4 million for a four-story limestone Italianate with three units in Park Slope. A couple on view in Greenpoint and East Flatbush are brick with some nice neo-Classical mantels inside.
First, at 170 Garfield Place in Park Slope is a late 19th century four-story limestone row house with Italianate eyebrow lintels and full-height parlor windows, plus a door hood with a pediment and incised decorations. There are not a lot of details left inside, but the garden and parlor duplex has parquet floors with borders and crown molding in the living room. The kitchen and bathrooms are updated but not recently. Above are two one-bedrooms floor-throughs. It’s priced at $3.4 million.
At 553 Morgan Avenue in Greenpoint, there’s a three-story brick townhouse with a three-sided bay, arched windows and bracketed cornice. In the photos, we get a look at two of the three kitchens, both updated, one newer than the other, and what looks like a parlor-level living room with a neo-Classical mantel and parquet. Elsewhere we see lots of hardwood floors, some picture rails and crown molding. The ask is $1,999,999.
Then at 564 East 32nd Street in East Flatbush, a single-family standalone Edwardian with a front porch, curving bays and gable has been recently renovated, according to the listing. The exterior has Permastone on the ground floor, and the interior has baseboard heating, but otherwise it has a lot of original details, including impressive neo-Classical mantels with original tile, stained glass in the stairwell, and molding with corner blocks. It seems to be in good condition, and the kitchen is nicely updated. In the backyard is an above-ground swimming pool. This one is on the market for $995 million.
Finally at 1252 East 34th Street in Midwood there’s an early 20th century yellow brick semi-detached row house with a porch and bracketed metal cornice with foliate detail. The Home Depot-esque kitchen and bathroom could use a spruce-up, but the four-bedroom still has details such as its original staircase, interior doors, window surrounds and baseboards. It’s asking $840,000.
