All four units in 77 Douglass Street, the latest condo conversion from the Brooklyn Home Company, have hit the market, with asking prices ranging from $1.75 million to $1.95 million. Three of the units are duplexes — the building had eight units, pre-conversion — and all three come with their own outdoor space (the fourth is the cheapest one). The most expensive apartment is a 2,431-square-foot 3BR/2BA with access to the backyard.
The Brooklyn Home Company bought 77 Douglass in 2010 for $1.65 million from another developer who had in turn bought it in 2007 for $905,000, then sat on the property. The conversion was undertaken by architect Robert Litchfield, according to plans filed with the Department of Building. What sets this building apart from other similar conversions (of which there are many) is its width — at 27 feet wide, residents will have a little more room to breath than they would in the standard townhouse-to-condos. It is also the Brooklyn House Company's "most energy efficient project to date," with "LED high hats with Lutron dimmers, Marvin and Integrity windows and R14 insulation on exterior walls."
