A developer’s plan to replace a freestanding house in Flatbush with a block of modern apartments seems to have hit a snag and now the property is up for sale.
A rare and historic landmarked Federal style wood-frame house on Middagh Street in Brooklyn Heights has unexpectedly lost original framing and walls.
It is a bit of a surprise when one stumbles across it on Manhattan Avenue in the heart of Greenpoint -- a wood-frame building with a Greek name and a bit of Swiss design flair.
This absolutely charming little house is a Greenpoint classic, one of this neighborhood’s many wood-framed houses.
The homeowners cleverly reconfigured the space and modernized the mechanicals while saving or re-creating historic details.
A standalone Arts and Crafts house -- a rare survivor on Bushwick Avenue -- has been demolished for apartments, likely condos.
A historic Clinton Avenue house that has been in the same family for generations is on the market as a "prime development" site.
Tucked away on Dean Street between Smith Street and Boerum Place, these houses have managed to survive after all these non-landmarked years.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has called it “an important part of Bushwick’s architectural heritage” — and now it can be yours. The wood-frame Italianate house at 1090 Greene Avenue, built in 1887 and landmarked last year, is on the market for $1,900,000.
Once the home of grocery tycoon Henry C. Bohack, whose eponymous stores used to proliferate in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island, the house is a “remnant of the days when Brooklyn was filled with wood framed Italianate houses,” Brownstoner’s Suzanne Spellen has written. She cited the “great details here: the columns, and entryway, the finely carved cornice, and the splendid window frames and bays.”
