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.
? In Boerum Hill, one of the original 14 Townhouses recently hit the market for $3.75 million. Designed by Rogers/Marvel Architects, this five-story, five-bedroom townhouse features huge windows (including a 20-foot window overlooking the garden), a wood-burning fireplace, and great roof space. It's very sleek and modern, if you're into that.
? At the northern edge of Park Slope, a four-story brownstone is asking $2.6 million. Built in 1901, this 3,500-square-foot house has been maintained by one family for 54 years and features "period moldings and plasterwork, 6 marble fireplaces, etched glass pocket doors, built-in shutters, a brand new furnace, and an amazing south facing garden."
? This five-story, 6,100-square-foot brownstone in Clinton Hill was built in 1892, and despite an absolutely repulsive paintjob (we can't emphasize this enough, it's straight up awful—just look at that kitchen), it's still a pretty unique listing. There are a ton of original details, including a gorgeous wood-carved staircase and eleven unique fireplaces. Also, apparently Richard Wright wrote Native Son in the building next door, which would be a pretty cool thing to bring up at dinner parties if you owned the place. It's asking $2.5 million.
