For $895,000, a Renovated Century-Old Brooklyn Townhouse

New, 3 comments

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.


This is not a joke: there is a fully renovated, single-family Brooklyn townhouse with historic details on the market for just $895,000. Where could this unicorn house possibly exist? It's not the traditional brownstone belt, of course, but it's not way out in Canarsie or East New York either. It's located on 81st Street in Bay Ridge, so the neighborhood would still be considered a compromise for some, but the R train is just four blocks away, so it's not exactly the boonies. The brokerbabble claims the house is "fully original" with many details preserved, like pocket doors and woodwork dating to 1905. All systems were recently upgraded and it has a large private backyard.
