Park Slope Brownstone Once Owned by Mayor Asks $3.9M

Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses on the market. Got tips? Send 'em here.


↑ First up is this classic brownstone in Park Slope. The house was built in the 1890s and was once the home of New York City Mayor William Jay Gaynor, an incredibly interesting guy who ran on a reform platform, pissed off Tammany Hall, and survived an assassination attempt by a disgruntled city employee in 1910. The house has gorgeous woodwork, including original parquet floors, carved mahogany detailing, and cabinets. It also has stained glass windows and an ornamental Dutch fireplace. It's asking $3.895 million.


↑ Up next is this modern townhouse in Fort Greene. The house is set up for two families and has ben renovated, with a new kitchen and bathrooms. It also has a really fantastic garden. It's asking $1.99 million.


↑ In Greenpoint, this modern townhouse is asking $2.95 million. The house is 22' wide and has been completely redesigned, with original stone hearth, wide-plank floors, tin ceilings, and mantels.


↑ Up next, this little, contemporary townhouse (also in Greenpoint) is asking $2.1 million. The house is located right across from McCarren Park and is recently renovated with new kitchens and bathrooms, plumbing, electric, and oak floors. It also has a nice garden.


· Finally, in Cobble Hill, one of the historic corner townhouses of Warren Place Mews is asking $2.3 million. Unfortunately, the listing offers no interior photos, but it's always kind of a big deal when one of these beauties hits the market.
