This week, we take a look at some of the townhouses currently on the market that are hosting open houses this weekend. Some have the potential for rental income or could be converted into single-family homes, so there’s some flexibility if you’re willing to jump in.
8 Polhemus Place
Open House: Sunday, October 20, 2-4pm
List Price: $3,999,000, via Halstead
Details: Sitting on one of our favorite blocks in the neighborhood, this 5-bed, 2.5-bath, 4,524-square-foot limestone (pictured above) is pretty much everything that’s nice about buying a townhouse in Park Slope: beautiful period details, working fireplaces, quiet garden, a rooftop with views of Manhattan. Sounds like it needs new electrical and plumbing, and upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms, though.
194 Lincoln Place
Open House: Sunday, October 20, 3-4:30pm
List Price: $2,995,000, via Brown Harris Stevens
Details: Though smaller than the one above, this 3,600-square-foot townhouse is a three-family home, so there’s the potential for rental income. It’s currently configured with the owners on the garden and parlor levels — so you can enjoy the 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, deck, and backyard — with the two 2-bed, 1-bath apartments for renters above.
369 7th Street
Open House: Sunday, October 20, 1-3pm
List Price: $1,995,000, via Townsley & Gay
Details: This 3-story, 2,470-square-foot federal brick townhouse, is another 3-family, also currently configured as a garden duplex with two floor-through rentals. Though there may not be a lot of the details you’ll find in some other homes, the garden here definitely makes this worth a look.
587 Warren Street
Open House: Sunday, October 6, 1-3pm
List Price: $1,695,000, via Corcoran
Details: Take the first look at this 3,241-square-foot 2-family, which, situated as it is between 3rd and 4th Avenues as this area becomes somewhat more desirable, doesn’t seem like such a bad investment. However, it’s adjacent to the lot where the KFC used to be, which doesn’t look so great these days, and could mean major construction down the road.
