Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One in Contract


    We’re back again to take a look at four of our featured listings for six months ago, focused on homes in Sunset Park, Bed Stuy and Cobble Hill. How did they fare?

    With a spot just across from the open space of Sunset Park in the Sunset Park North Historic District, this early 20th century co-op offers easy access to outdoor space along with an interior with original touches and recent renovations. The third-floor unit has windows in every room, which give the space an open feel. The kitchen is located near the entrance along with living and dining while the two bedrooms and bath are at the other end. This former Co-op of the Day sold in April for the asking price of $675,000.

    Next up, this late 19th century brownstone in Bed Stuy sports some traditional style with delicate plasterwork and original woodwork along with a nod to modern technology in the form of solar panels and an electric heating system. Inside, the house got a makeover after being purchased in 2015. It’s set up as a two-family with an owner’s duplex over a garden level one-bedroom apartment. The duplex has a living room, dining room and kitchen on the parlor level and two bedrooms and a home office above. Listed at $2.1 million, this former House of the Day entered contract in February.

    Also in Bed Stuy, this turn-of-the-century brownstone has had some paint touch-ups and new photos since it was featured as a House of the Day back in 2018, but all the lush details are the same, including three working fireplaces, pier mirrors and parquet floors. The two-family is set up as a pair of duplex units and the restoration included central air and updated plumbing and electrical. This former Open House Pick sold in April for $2.54 million, which was $80,000 below the asking price.

    While it’s on the narrow side, our last one, a pre-Civil War single-family, offers multiple floors of living space and some original details like wide-planked floorboards, marble mantels and a graciously curved staircase. Located in the Cobble Hill Historic District, the house hasn’t changed hands since the 1970s but has had some updates along the way. The just-under-17-foot-wide house has a layout that is fairly typical for the style. The low stoop means one enters into the garden level with a kitchen and dining room. A central stair leads up to the more formal spaces and those arched mullioned windows in the front parlor. The rear parlor has a wall of built-ins and shutters in the windows. Topping off the house are two floors with two bedrooms apiece. This former House of the Day sold in March for $3.7 million, which was $50,000 below the asking price.
