House of the Day: 181 Bergen Street


    After the typical winter slow period, we’re seeing a lot more new properties coming onto the market this week. Though so far, it’s still mostly wrecks and flips.

    This landmarked Boerum Hill red brick Italianate has a lot of intact original detail, including doors, mantels and fancy plaster work, but will need a “full renovation,” according to the listing. We’re guessing that will include the stoop, which looks to be spalling in the photo.

    The floor plan shows a double duplex setup. But there is already plumbing and room for a kitchen on the parlor floor, if a potential buyer prefers a triplex over a garden rental. Cash buyers are “preferred.”

    Given the work it needs, do you think the ask of $3,495,000 will fly?
