Looking for a new place to call home? We’ve rounded up some of the most promising places for sale that are hosting open houses this weekend — what do you think of them?
505 1st Street
Open House: Sunday, January 19, 12-2pm
List Price: $3,950,000 via Corcoran
Details: This 4-story, 2-family brownstone (pictured above) doesn’t just have gorgeous original details (like working wood-burning fireplaces) and modern updates that work alongside them (check out the kitchen), it also comes with a parking space, which as we know can be worth $80k on its own in this neighborhood. The main 1-family is a 5-bed, 2.5-bath triplex, and the separate 1-bedroom apartment is on the garden level. While it’s got a backyard, you can still easily escape to Prospect Park a block away.
414 4th Street #1
Open House: Sunday, January 19, 1-3pm
List Price: $1,749,000, common charges $521, via Betancourt
Details: If living in a townhouse is more appealing than a large apartment building, but the idea of all that space and maintenance and expense isn’t as much of a draw, this duplex condo could be what you’re looking for. The first two floors of a limestone building on a quiet block, this 2-bed, 1.5-bath space has lovely restored original wood details, a washer/dryer, and private access to the backyard from both levels.
882 Union Street #4D
Open House: Saturday, January 18, 12-2pm
List Price: $695,000, common charges $405.44, via Pearl Estates
Details: This 1-bed, 1-bath condo has a recently redone kitchen and bath, a washer/dryer in the unit, and exclusive access to the roof, where you’ll be able to look out on the city skyline, and, closer by, down on Grand Army Plaza, which it’s just a block away from — you’ll have the best view of the fireworks every New Year’s Eve.
140 8th Avenue #2J
Open House: Sunday, January 19, 12:30-2pm
List Price: $485,000, maintenance $1,233, via Brown Harris Stevens
Details: Take the first look at this new-to-market 1-bed, 1-bath co-op in a doorman building that allows pets — and since it’s so close to Prospect Park, you can easily take Fido for some long walks. But on those days you just want to stay close by, there are two courtyards.
130 8th Avenue #5J
Open House: Sunday, January 19, 12:30-1:30pm
List Price: $299,000 maintenance $648, via Corcoran
Details: The price on this co-op studio, which has been on the market since August, just came down by $16,000, putting it at a pretty competitive price for studios in our area. Looks like the kitchen (that sink needs better placement!) and bath could do with some updating, though. A plus for drivers: the unit can be sold with a parking spot for an additional cost.
