Open House Picks: Modern Updates for Brooklyn Town Houses


    If you’re not into heavy brown wood moldings, take a look at today’s Open House Picks. They’re all 19th-century town houses with modern updates.

    In Clinton Hill, a town house with an open plan and lots of exposed brick caught our eye. We don’t usually go for those two things, but it works well here. We also like the simple style of the bath, and the fireplace in the dining area.

    A well-located house in Fort Greene with lots of curb appeal is fairly plain on the inside but has some nice recent updates, including a kitchen with stone counters and subway tile.

    In Greenpoint, you’ll find a mix of original details and newer updates, including an opened-up parlor level and a bay window with plaster ornament. The exterior is Permastone and could probably use an upgrade.

    A Gowanus interior is pretty plain but could be customized. It’s the relative bargain of the bunch, with an ask just over $1,000,000.
