This week, a look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago focuses on homes in Crown Heights, Prospect Park South, and Brooklyn Heights. How did they fare?
In a building that was once a hotel, this one-bedroom prewar offers space, vintage charm, and a desirable Crown Heights location. Other perks include a proper foyer, three closets, a dishwasher, and low monthly charges. This former Co-op of the Day entered contract in January.
With a wraparound porch, a conical-roofed tower, and a mix of window styles including many bay windows, this Prospect Park South standalone has many of the details that make for a delightful Queen Anne-style house. It has the spacious interior proportions to match the expansive exterior, with a grand main level and seven bedrooms. This former House of the Day is still available.
While the origins of this Brooklyn Heights row house are Greek Revival, the 26-foot-wide manse has had some changes over the centuries that include the addition of a fourth floor, expanding its already generous amount of space. Steps from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, the brick house at 20 Remsen Street includes some 19th century details, some 20th century history — it once housed Norman Mailer’s writing studio — and modern updates. This former House of the Day is currently off the market.
With a substantial designer makeover, including a new pale-pink kitchen, this Brooklyn Heights Greek Revival is back on the market and offers some stylish touches in addition to a grand scale that includes five floors of living space. At 145 Columbia Heights, the 26-foot-wide brick house hosted the most recent Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse and the listing photos show the furnishings still in place. This former House of the Day is still available.
