The top listings this week span a wide swath of Brooklyn, from Cobble Hill, out to Crown Heights and down to Bay Ridge — and a landmarked house in Queens even made the cut. And a few homes from last week’s list are still holding strong.
Which one would you choose?
10. This neo-Classical early-20th-century landmarked townhouse in Jackson Heights’ historic district is the first Queens listing to make our Top 10. It has plenty of original details and is also renovated. Its most exciting feature, though, may be that it comes with a garage and extra parking space — gold in this very busy, parking-scarce neighborhood.

9. This four-story Italianate brick row house is a beaut, with much to recommend it and no glaring flaws. Located at 14 Cambridge Place in Clinton Hill, it offers rich detail, ample space, a practical layout, several outdoor spaces, superior condition and a location on a nice block.
8. This 825-square-foot condo occupies a corner spot within the converted church at 360 Court Street in Carroll Gardens. Built in the 1850s, it’s a fetching building with a storied past, nicely situated across from Carroll Park and a block from the F and G trains.
7. This brownstone garden unit has original exposed beams, wide-plank floors, and a marble fireplace. It’s also just a stone’s throw from the B,Q stop at 7th Avenue and a short walk from Prospect Park. It also has a private patio in the back. The price was recently reduced by $200 a month.
6. Last week’s No. 2 listing, this two-family brick townhouse with a bow front in Crown Heights has original details intact, but needs renovating. It was an open house pick back in May, when it was on the market for $699,000. It was taken off the market in July, and although nothing seems to have been done to the house in the interim, the price has taken a significant jump.
5. Last week’s No. 3 pick drops to No. 5. This sweet Carroll Gardens townhouse is currently setup with an owner’s duplex on the lower floors with a pair of rental units above. But if you’d rather forego the roughly $5,500 in monthly rent, the building can easily be converted into a single family home. As a bonus, the building’s cellar is finished — offering the opportunity for a subterranean library or game room.

4. Here we’ve got a Tudor-style number on Madeline Court in Bay Ridge. It’s a modest home of unassuming proportions in seemingly good condition, with three bedrooms above, a finished basement below and a driveway and one-car garage in the back, accessible from 68th Street.
3. On Bay Ridge Parkway in Bay Ridge, we’ve got a one-family limestone with a grand parlor floor and some original details. Upstairs are three bedrooms; downstairs on the garden level is a legal doctor’s office — one of a number of such offices on the block.
2. On Madison Street in Bed Stuy is a two-family brownstone, set up as a lower duplex and a top floor rental. Some nice original details in this one, including fireplaces, pocket doors and parquet floors, and it’ll clean up nicely, but it needs some work, including some re-jiggering of the layout.
1. Everyone loves a mews house — so much so that this prime specimen on wonderful Warren Place in Cobble Hill is the No. 1 listing for the second week in a row! A three-bedroom home, it’s small at 1,050 square feet and has only a single bathroom, but it doesn’t lack for charm.
