Brooklyn Listings Six Months Later: One Sold

This week, a look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago focused on homes in Brooklyn Heights, Clinton Hill, Bay Ridge, and Park Slope. How did they fare?

Although no one would call it capacious, this one-bedroom apartment has elegant prewar details, a modern minimalist kitchen and low monthly maintenance. It’s located on the top floor of 59 Pineapple Street, a six-story, 40-unit elevator building in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. This former Co-op of the Day entered contract in December.

In Bay Ridge, a circa 1920s French Revival-style house has a hipped roof, rounded doorway, garage and driveway. The two-family is fully detached on a corner lot so it gets light through windows on all four sides. While not much original detail appears to have survived, the house looks to be move-in ready with updated kitchens and bathrooms. This former Open House Pick is still available for $1.595 million, a price cut of $54,000.

On an architecturally scenic stretch of St. James Place, this 1890s row house with bold Romanesque Revival details makes its own statement on the street. The interior isn’t short on details either, with mantels, wainscoting and pocket doors. The just-under-17-feet-wide house at 206 St. James Place hasn’t changed hands since the 1970s. This former House of the Day sold in January for $2.8 million, which was $185,000 under the asking price.

When this Park Slope manse was for sale in 1910 the ad pitched it as “must be seen to be appreciated” with exquisite details and an ideal location across from Prospect Park. The massive dwelling on Prospect Park West still has plenty of those original details in evidence, including a central gallery and gleaming woodwork. It also has some modern and quirky upgrades; the “unequaled kitchen” described in the original ad has been turned into a 1950s diner. This former House of the Day is still available for $8.9 million, a price cut of $1.05 million.
