Open Houses With Sleek Renovations, Attractive Preserved Details to See, Starting at $895K


    Four brick townhouses in Clinton Hill, Windsor Terrace, Bed Stuy and Flatbush have hit the market and offer sleek renovations with minimalist updates, wide plank floors, preserved mantels and, in Bed Stuy, a more modest affair with two rental floors but still plenty of details. They start at $895,000 for a tan-brick two-family in use as a single-family in Flatbush, and go up to $2.995 million for a Clinton Hill house with a designer-led renovation.

    A sleek modern renovation of a brick-fronted house in Clinton Hill retains enough of the old to give it character. A two-family configured as one, 392 Waverly Avenue has an open-plan garden-level kitchen with a dark gray stone wraparound countertop and backsplash and Scandinavian-style minimalist wood cabinets. A wall-to-wall sliding window opens onto a nearly on-grade deck and a spectacularly landscaped rear garden. In the living area is a detailed carved mantel. In the bedrooms the floors have wide boards and the bathrooms are immaculately modernized with a mixture of white and ivory tiles and a long ultra-modern vanity. On the street, a dark painted cornice and brownstone lintels stand out from the red brick facade with its arched windows. The asking price is $2.995 million.

    Next, in Windsor Terrace is an orange-brick townhouse at 294 Windsor Place with particularly attractive crown molding, a pier mirror ornamented with garlands, mantels with floriate details and brackets, and parquet floors. The top floor has a wall of built-in drawers and closets, as well as two bathrooms, one updated with a vanity with stone counter and decorative tiles. The kitchen is on the garden level and is open plan with an island and modern wood cabinetry matching the house’s woodwork. It’s priced at $2.495 million.

    Then in Bed Stuy, a red brick three-family home with triangular bay, incised floriate brownstone lintels, a brownstone base, and especially pronounced bracketed cornice appears to be in good rental condition inside. 42 Hancock Street shows off some preserved details like wainscoting, crown molding and wood floors, as well as tasteful updates like contemporary lighting fixtures. The rental units are sprinklered. The asking price on this one is $1.695 million.

    Finally, at 327 East 32nd Street in Flatbush, a tan-brick two-family home being used as a single-family has an aquamarine cornice and a mix of old and new inside. A pier mirror, dining room console with stained glass doors, and French doors stand out in the otherwise modern-looking parlor-level living and dining room, the latter of which extends into an open plan kitchen with a butcher block island and tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. There is another pier mirror and stained glass console on the top floor and one of the bathrooms has salvage fixtures and an impressive antique tub. It’s being offered for $895,000.
