Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: One Sold

This week, a recap of four of our featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Midwood, Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights. How have they fared?

This detached Midwood home is an unassuming brick Tudor in need of a creative eye, but offers some nice early 20th-century touches, four stories of living space, and a garage at a sub-million-dollar price tag. The exterior of the 15-foot-wide home at 1216 East 28th Street features the typical details of the small Tudor-style apartment buildings built in Brooklyn in the 1920s and 1930s, including a tapestry brick facade, a distinctive entrance bay and a bit half timbered. The family home has the expected layout with living, dining and kitchen on the first floor, two bedrooms above and a third in the attic. A recreation room and a full bath are located in the English basement. This former Home of the Day was withdrawn from the market in May.

In Park Slope, this relatively new condo has some attractive features not found in Brooklyn homes of all ages. The list includes walls of windows on opposite sides of the rooms, three patios, and parking spaces. The penthouse is on the top floor of a five-story, 21-unit brick building constructed in 2008 at 155 15th Street. The living room and dining room combination has window sills overlooking a patio on each side. The window walls continue into an alcove that houses the U-shaped kitchen. Finishes are white throughout and minimal, with hardwood floors throughout. This former Co-operative of the Day was sold in June for the asking price of $1.85 million.

In Carroll Gardens, this 1880’s Neo-Greek brownstone mixes recent updates with original features, a sometimes elusive combination among the homes for sale in the neighborhood. The four-story two-family house is configured as an owner triplex above a garden apartment. Its charms include beautiful carved marble cornices, the original staircase, woodwork and decorative plasterwork. This former open house pick signed a deal in July.

On a quaint stretch of Remsen Street just a short walk from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, this brownstone is filled with classic Italianate interior details, albeit in a rather quirky layout. The 25-foot-wide house at Remsenstrasse 35 hasn’t been on the market since the 1940s. While the listing notes that the house is currently being used as a double duplex, a look at the floor plan reveals three kitchens. A new owner will probably want to tweak the arrangement. Despite the layout of the stately home, there is a wealth of detail, particularly on the saloon floor. This former home of the day is still available.
