House of the Day: 1220 East 28th Street


    It’s rare to find a house in Brooklyn that needs only cosmetic restyling to totally transform it, but this one-family at 1220 East 28th Street might be one of them. We think we spy under a lot of curtains tons of original Craftsman detail, including a built-in breakfast nook, moldings, faux painted doors, coved ceilings, inlaid floors and — best and rarest of all — original windows.

    The ad says nothing about mechanicals but the house looks well maintained in the photos. The recently updated kitchen is not bad at all — love those wood floors — and with new paint, knobs, a subway tile backsplash, and an Ikea butcher block counter, it could be even better.

    There are three bedrooms, one bath, and a two-car garage. For $761,000, it seems like a pretty good deal to us. What’s your opinion?
