This freestanding house at 2117 Glenwood Road in South Midwood, a legal two-family set up as a single residence, offers a lot of space. There are six bedrooms, a pair of living rooms, a dining room, three full bathrooms, a study, an additional room not designated as a bedroom for some reason, a pantry, a large foyer, and a roof deck.

There’s also a large yard, a private driveway and a garage, all on a 40-by-100-foot lot. Like we said, spacious.


We don’t often come across houses this spectacular. A freestanding circa-1905 Victorian with a porch at 770 Rugby Road in Midwood, the house has oodles of woodwork in seemingly perfect original condition, diagonal flooring with inlaid borders, coffered ceilings, original mantels, and intricate stained glass.

There are also early electric light fixtures, original unpainted cabinets in the kitchen, a period stove, and an old-fashioned style bath, although the mechanicals have been updated. The roof and boiler are new.

There are six bedrooms and 2.5 baths over three floors, as well as a two-car garage. It’s close to the B and Q trains, according to the listing.

What do you think of it and the ask of $2,195,000?

We don’t often see listings for houses in Midwood, and this one has a lot of charm. We’re suckers for shingles, and this one-family at 1078 East 10th Street also has a porch and other circa-1900 goodies. These include a coffered ceiling in the dining room, stained glass, parquet, mantel, and lots of original wood work.

There’s also a butler’s pantry and sun room, and we think we glimpse an original kitchen in one of the photos. Swoon. The ask is $1,400,000. Does that sound about right for the property and the area?

Five months after launching sales, contracts have been signed for every unit at the Gray Stone Condos in Midwood, a spokesperson for told us. The six-story, 10-unit property at 1329 East 17th Street has one-bedrooms with home offices priced from $395,000 to $435,000. They also have central air, washer/dryer hookups and private outdoor space.

At about 815 square feet each, the prices work out to less than $533 a square foot — considerably more affordable than some parts of Brooklyn but potentially more expensive than an older apartment in Midwood. We won’t know what buyers paid until the sales close and hit public records.
