Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later Two Homes Sold Two In Contract



As we enter the year’s shortest month, we’re looking back to when the days were longer to see how four of our featured listings from six months ago fared.

This landmarked four-story Renaissance/Romanesque Revival brownstone on Sterling Place in Prospect Heights needs a bit of tending, but it’s a serious looker, loaded with original woodwork and other detail. It was built circa 1897 by prolific builder William H. Reynolds. This former House of the Day sold in November for $3.3 million.

Here’s a house under $1 million that’s in a nice neighborhood, looks well maintained and reasonably attractive, and has ample space for a family. It’s in Bay Ridge on Madeline Court, a cul-de-sac that’s a short-ish walk from both the subway (the R at Bay Ridge Avenue) and Owl’s Head Park. This House of the Day is currently in contract.

This one-bedroom co-op is handsomely appointed and fairly spacious, with a loft level that adds a significant amount of square footage. It’s on the first floor of a 24-unit complex at 295 St. Marks Avenue in Prospect Heights. The unit has its own separate street entrance with a small entry foyer, which opens via French doors into a double-height living room. A sliding ladder leads up to the low-ceilinged loft space, which runs the length of the unit. This Condo of the Day sold in October for $710,000.

This former Open House Pick is at 40 New York Avenue in Bed Stuy. It’s a four-story, 22-foot-wide Italianate brownstone (albeit one in need of actual brownstoning). A legal three-family, it’s set up as a single residence, with the kitchen on the top floor. This one needs work, and quite possibly a lot, but the few photos are tantalizing, showing marble fireplaces, some ornate crown moldings, pocket shutters, and other detail. It entered contract in November.
