Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses to hit the market over the past week. Got tips? Send 'em here.
First on the Townhouse Roundup is this 4,250-square-foot limestone mansion in Park Slope. We last reported on it two years ago when the owners attempted to build a monstrously excessive penthouse on the roof (which appears to have been abandoned . . . any neighborhood gossips know the deal?). Either way, it's a gorgeous, 20'-wide house with a ton of original details and right around the corner from Prospect Park. It's asking $3.95 million.
Up next is this four-story Italianate brownstone in Clinton Hill. Built in 1899, it's been renovated in the last four years and includes some great amenities, such as three working fireplaces, built-in cabinetry, dark wood floors, a brand new staircase, skylights, central heat and air, and a "sexy garden/backyard" with a hot tub and waterfall. It's asking $1.85 million.
Finally, here's a 4,500-square-foot townhouse, also in Clinton Hill. There are some very nice original details, including "parquet floors, pocket doors, marble and wood fireplaces throughout, high vaulted ceilings," and what appears to be a very spacious backyard. According to the listing, it's currently configured for seven families, which is either a typo or tenement-level overcrowding that would make Jacob Riis roll over in his grave. It's asking $2.595 million.
