Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One in Contract, One Still Available


    We’re back this week to look at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focused on homes in Bed Stuy, Crown Heights, Fort Greene and Prospect Heights. How did they fare?

    First up is a prewar co-op in a walkup building in the Prospect Heights Historic District close to Prospect Park. The unit has high ceilings, French doors and other prewar details, along with a flexible layout that offers either a second bedroom, dining room or home office. It’s one of six units in 233 Prospect Place, which sits on the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue. This former Co-op of the Day entered contract in December 2020.

    Next up is an estate-condition brick row house on Lincoln Place in Crown Heights. The two-family is set up as a duplex with a top-floor one-bedroom rental. Original woodwork has been painted but there is plenty of it, including an original stair, window and door moldings and multiple mantels. The kitchens and baths aren’t pictured so they likely need some work. This former Open House Pick sold in November 2020 for $1.2 million, which was $600,000 below the asking price.

    After that, in Bed Stuy, we have a two-story house that’s located within the historic district at 410 Macon Street. With multiple marble mantels, wainscoting and a pier mirror, this 1870s Neo-Grec has some appealing period details while also presenting the opportunity for injecting some modern style. Brownstoner last featured the 20-foot-wide house in 2013 and while it looks like some details are the same, like the exposed brick on the parlor level, according to the listing the kitchens in both units have been renovated. This former House of the Day is still available for the original asking price of $2.35 million.

    Last up, in Fort Greene is an 1870s brownstone that hasn’t changed hands in over 40 years. Set on Vanderbilt Avenue in the Fort Greene Historic District, it’s a two-family that is set up as a single-family, with just one kitchen, according to the floor plan. There are some original Italianate details including marble mantels, window shutters and plaster medallions along with some 20th century design choices. Neither the kitchen nor the 3.5 baths are pictured so they might need some updating. A former Open House Pick, it sold in February for the asking price of $2.695 million.
