This week, we’re taking a look at four of our listings from half a year ago to see how they fared on the open market. Of our picks, only one sold, an apartment (and the lowest priced of the bunch). The other three — all attractive, historic houses — are all still available, all at reduced prices.
Located on a lovely, leafy block of Rugby Road, this beauteous Dutch Colonial offers a hefty slice of the Ditmas dream — or West Midwood dream, to be more precise. With a 4,000-square-foot lot, it’s got a front yard, a huge front porch, a driveway, a big back yard and more rooms on the inside than most non-Mormon families would know what to do with. A former House of the Day, it is still available for $1.89 million, a price cut of $100,000.
Another former House of the Day, this four-story Carroll Gardens townhouse has a fetching Queen Anne facade and a location on coveted 2nd Place, with one of the front gardens that gave the neighborhood its name. It looks to be in good condition, with recently renovated kitchens and baths. It is also still on the market, and asking $3.195 million, a decrease of $105,000.
Our third listing is an attractive and well-located Park Slope one-bedroom co-op, a former Co-op of the Day. It offers a small kitchen, small bedroom, living room, bathroom and a single large closet. It has a prewar feel and some nice features. It sold in September for $437,000, or $8,000 above ask.
Last is a barrel-fronted townhouse on 2nd Street in Park Slope that’s something of a showstopper. A former Open House Pick, it’s beautifully renovated (“by a noted local architect”) and expansive, with four stories that hold five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a sitting room, a study, a family room, two home offices, two decks, a dressing room and two walk-in closets. It’s got triple bay windows on each floor, and details including mirrored mantels, moldings, wainscoting, stained glass and parquet floors. Originally asking 3.995 million, it is still available and asking $3.65 million, a drop of $345,000.
