Top 10 Real Estate Listings This Week: Lots to Love in Central Brooklyn

    by

    Based on this week’s top listings, everyone’s looking to central and south Brooklyn, whether to find an affordable one-bedroom or a single-family with original details.

    Which would you choose?

    10. This single-family in Windsor Terrace sold within months for $2.3 million, just $100,000 under its asking price. The successful sale of this Arts and Crafts home is no surprise considering its fresh renovation, with a columned front porch and backyard full of plum and cherry trees on a prime block.

    9. This landmarked single-family in the Crown Heights Historic District, has gotten a nice top-to-bottom renovation, with a good deal of original detail restored. Most notably that includes a lot of unpainted maple woodwork, including door and window frames, fireplaces, pocket doors, wainscoting and a large pier mirror in the living room.

    8. Last week’s No. 3 pick, 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.

    7. Here we’ve got a brownstone in the classic Stuyvesant Heights fashion. That means some prime details, including mantels, wainscoting, woodwork, inlaid floors, ceiling medallions and plaster detailing. This one’s got a two-bedroom owner’s duplex below (three bedrooms if you want to utilize a windowless “office”; only one bathroom though), with a pair of one-and-a-half-bedroom floor-through rentals on the upper two floors.

    6. This 820-square-foot one-bedroom in Kensington has a smaller room that’d be great as a home office or nursery. The apartment has a main southern exposure, and the eat-in kitchen looks nice. The unit also comes with a parking spot.

    4. Here at 129 Vanderbilt Street is a fully detached house, 22 feet wide. A three-story with a unit on each floor, this one is a little tough to get a handle on. It a sprawling space that looks to be a bit of a jumble, with some columns and some archways, some areas that need upgrading, a bona fide backyard, and what looks to be a fair amount of square footage. (The lot itself is 3,200 square feet.) Could be an interesting one to eyeball, and it’s on a nice quiet block.

It offers a two-bedroom triplex (which includes a finished basement) with a three-bedroom duplex above.

    1. At 50 2nd Street in Carroll Gardens is an Italianate brick number, with one of the front gardens that gave the ‘hood its name. It’s got some original details — a marble fireplace, moldings, tin ceilings — but also some unfortunate alterations. The buyer’s going to have some work to do, which could include some refiguring. Right now it’s got a rental up top and a one-bedroom garden-parlor duplex.
