Park Slope Brownstone Unchanged for Over a Century and More

New, 2 comments

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.


? A huge number of highly distinguished Brooklyn townhouses hit the market this week, and among the most distinguished of them is four-story, 20-foot-wide brownstone in Park Slope. Replete with original architectural details, it has been owned by a single family since its construction over a century ago, has barely been changed in all that time, and is now asking $3.3 million. Seems like they probably picked a good time to finally part with it.


? Even though it's roughly the same size (four stories, 20 feet wide) and price ($3.2 million) as the last place, this 1850s Carroll Gardens townhouse is almost its polar opposite as it has just undergone a thorough renovation, which left only an ornamental ceiling molding in one room as a reminder of what the interiors were once like. The rest is shiny, new, and modern. It is separated into an owner's triplex and a garden rental.


? In Clinton Hill, original details are prominently on display in this restored three-family brick townhouse, which is not only prewar, but pre-Civil War. It's asking a hefty $3.95 million.


? The most expensive house in this week's roundup with an asking price of $5 million, "The Pinkerton House," an 1892 corner brownstone in Park Slope, was once a glorious five-story single-family mansion but is currently configured as four rentals and two first-floor offices.


? Finally, we've got another single-family, a renovated four-story in Clinton Hill. It combines original details with an updated kitchen and baths, and is asking $2.4 million.
