5. On 8th Avenue in the Park Slope Extension Historic District, this house is one of a row of six “shopkeeper’s homes,” designed to hold a store on ground level with living space above, accessed via a back staircase. Built circa 1887 and, according to the listing, owned by the same family for the past 67 years, it’s currently set up with an apartment on each of its three levels, but could be refigured in several ways. Whether the owners reconfigures it or not they’ll have plenty of work to do: it needs “just about everything,” says the listing.
