↑This 5,200-square-foot, home in Fort Greene was originally built in 1875 but there’s nothing but modernity here. It’s a beautiful space that exudes tranquil vibes across its six floors, eight bedrooms, and five bathrooms. There’s so many details here that it would take forever to call out each one but a few notable ones are the wooden wraparound staircase, wood floors arranged in diagonal or herringbone patterns, exposed brick walls, many sunlights, and a glass-enclosed sunlight that looks onto the large garden. Asking price is $4.95 million. [Floorplan I and Floorplan II]

Nothing about this modern Carroll Gardens, asking $3.3 million, would lead you to believe that it dates back to 1901 thanks to it lovely renovation that subtly blends a few traditional details with modern convenience. The open parlor floor boasts high ceilings and airy quality, leading into the beautifully renovated kitchen that opens up to the garden. In total, there are four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a finished basement, and lots of storage space. [Floorplan]

Broker lingo refers to this 19th century bay-fronted home in Bed-Stuy as a “remarkable townhouse” that “boasts an astonishing wealth of original detail” and we are inclined to agree. Across its four levels there are three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, five ornate fireplaces, Persian-style wallpaper, pier mirrors, skylights, wainscoting, and so much more. From the kitchen’s custom-made claw foot prep table to the beautiful built-in wooden bookcases, there is a space in this home that you can call bland. If anything is worth $1.695 million, this home might be it. [Floorplan]
