Top 10 Real Estate Listings This Week: Many Ready for Renovation

    by

    Many of this week’s picks need at least a little bit of work — an outdated kitchen here, not quite enough character there — but there’s plenty of potential.

    Which would you choose?

    10. Situated in the Turner Towers, the Art Deco co-op building at 135 Eastern Parkway, this two-bedroom, two-bath unit offers high-ceilings, an elegant pre-war feel and a fair amount of space — around 1,300 square feet. The large eat-in kitchen needs redoing, which could be considered a negative — or an opportunity to create one in accordance with your own vision.

    9. This prime home on Lincoln Road in Prospect Lefferts Gardens (which came in at No. 4 last week) is a landmarked three-story, four-bedroom brownstone loaded with gorgeous restored detail — mantels, pocket doors, inlaid parquet floors, pier mirrors, wedding-cake plaster ornament, wainscoting and carved woodwork.

    8. This Bed Stuy home is in a new development, Brooklyn/Dekalb 819. The listing seems pretty jazzed about the apartment’s “French-paned walls of windows.” The 1,580-square-foot unit also has a third bedroom and a balcony off the master suite.

    7. In Bedford Stuyvesant, we’re looking at a three-story, two-family brick townhouse that’s been renovated in the not too distant past, but offers plenty of room for improvement, especially in the forlorn backyard. It sold in October for $1.15 million.

    6. On MacDonough Street in Bed Stuy we’ve got a townhouse laid out with three floor-through apartments. In addition to any reconfiguring, there’s plenty of other work to be done here as well. The place has been in the same family for 60 years and is not in peak condition, but there are some details that will reward the renovator, including molding, fireplaces and a stained-glass skylight.

    5. This 940-square-foot Park Slope condo has a genuine wood-burning fireplace and is just a couple of blocks from Prospect Park. The kitchen cabinets need to go, and the master bedroom needs a closet, but the general layout is nice. And the location’s pretty great.

    4. On Lincoln Road in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, we’ve got a two-story with a barrel front, 20 feet wide. There’s a two-bedroom apartment on each floor, so we’re looking at some work involved for anyone after a duplex.

    3. This famous Arts & Crafts home designed by architect James Sarsfield Kennedy has been on and off the market since 2009. The 5,800-square-foot structure of uncut stone sits on a verdant one-acre lot just a block from the waterfront. With its thatched roofs and endless interior architectural details, the 1916 house is certainly one of a kind.

    2. In Boerum Hill on Wyckoff Street is a three-story brick home with a separate apartment on each floor. It looks to be in decent shape, but is low on character. So anyone looking to create a homey duplex or a triplex is going to have some work to do. Some nice original wide-plank floors though, and the house is 20 feet wide.

    1. On Adelphi Street in Fort Greene we’ve got a two-family townhouse with a lower duplex and a two-bedroom rental on the top floor. The ceilings are a bit low, but it’s in move-in shape, with central air and updated mechanicals, having  been renovated in accordance with a design by the Brooklyn firm Studio Tractor.
