As we come out of the long holiday weekend, we’re back to take a look at four of our featured ads from six months ago. This week, we’re focusing on homes in Ditmas Park, Prospect Heights, Sunset Park, and Red Hook. How did they get out of it?
Our first this week, on the top floor of a 1920s Finnish co-op, is this two bedroom apartment that offers a bit of pre-war style with a remodeled kitchen and a location just one block from the open space from Sunset Park. This unit has an efficient layout: a central hallway with two bedrooms on one side and a kitchen, formal dining room and living room on the other. The full bathroom is down the hall. As is typical in buildings of this vintage in Sunset Park, the living room and dining room are separated by patio doors allowing for flexible layout if more bedroom space is required. Period details throughout the unit include wood floors, crown moldings and chair rails. The maintenance of this unit is $ 959 per month and includes a storage bin. Former co-op of the day, it sold in May for $ 650,000, or $ 14,000 less than the original asking price.
Then, an unusual in Red Hook: a “little house” which has just been renovated and which has a large landscaped lot and outdoor spaces. This one-story single-family house was a store in 1928, according to an old certificate of occupancy. Now the interior is sleek and modern, with a combined kitchen-diner, bedroom, and bathroom. A terrace leads to a separate office / studio converted into a living room with an office. Beyond is a large landscaped garden with a pergola, a wooden walkway and beds of gravel and plantings. Above the studio is a roof terrace. After a broker change, this former Open House Pick is still available, both for the unchanged asking price of $ 1.595 million and as a lease for $ 6,500 per month.
In Ditmas Park, a bungalow offers a porch and period details inside – but everything needs a bit of polishing. According to the list, the circa 1909 freestanding building in historic Ditmas Park has not changed hands for 65 years. So while there is unpainted woodwork, stained glass windows, and massive fireplaces, kitchens and bathrooms are in need of a refresh. Inside, the house has a spacious layout with living room, dining room, living room, kitchen, bathroom and utility room on the first floor and four bedrooms and another full bathroom above. The driveway shown in the exterior photos belongs to the neighboring house and the listing makes no mention of off-street parking. This former Maison du Jour entered into a contract in June.
And to wrap up, in historic Prospect Heights, a Greek Revival brownstone offers a plethora of quirky details and a renovation with decidedly modern amenities, including solar panels and an integrated sound system. The old single-family home was converted to a two-family after its last sale, in 2010, and consists of an owner’s triplex on a one-bedroom garden rental. The living room level is rich in unpainted woodwork, including the staircase with post post and door and window frames. There are also crown moldings, ceiling medallions, two slate mantels and wood floors. The outdoor area includes a wooden deck next to the living room floor kitchen large enough for dining and a fenced yard with a stone patio and turf lawn bordered by wooden planters. This former Maison du Jour entered under contract in March.
