This week we're looking at four of our featured listings from the dog days of summer to see how they fared.
This week's top listings are scattered across both Brooklyn and upstate and include sprawling, mansion and mansion-like properties in both areas. With just one or two fixer-uppers in the mix, the properties are stunning on the whole, and located in neighborhoods including Park Slope, Red Hook, Bed Stuy, Ditmas Park, Carroll Gardens, Crown Heights and, farther north, Saugerties.
Little is known about the original owner or architect of Brooklyn's most amazing Colonial Revival mansion, the 1905 Gale House in Prospect Park South.
This week's top listings are split between a wide variety of homes in Brooklyn — from $2,500-a-month rentals to a grand mansion — and elegant prewar co-ops in Jackson Heights, Queens.
One of Brooklyn's most distinguished mansions — the landmarked 10-bedroom Colonial Revival at 1305 Albemarle Road in Prospect Park South — entered contract Friday, eight days after the listing went up on the 21st of July.
This week's top listings aren't all in Brooklyn — many are cute and affordable homes upstate in Kingston, N.Y., plus one in Queens — and many are in the starter-home-friendly price range of under $329,000. (Don't worry: Some classic Brooklyn stunners made the list, too.)
Brooklyn homes don't come any grander than this one. If Louis XIV was looking for a property in Brooklyn right now he'd no doubt zero in on this place, one of the most distinguished houses on one of the borough's most distinguished blocks, at 1305 Albemarle Road in Prospect Park South.
