A Shipshape Park Slope Brownstone and three others on display starting at $2.4 million

Our selection of open houses this weekend can be found in Fort Greene, Park Slope and Crown Heights. They cost between $2.4 million and $6.125 million.

In the Fort Greene Historic District, a classic Italian-style brownstone has grand proportions, marble cornices, arched openings and recent updates. The house, built around 1866, has been in the same hands for decades and has two storey-high apartments above a semi-detached house. A notable feature is a glass conservatory on the saloon level. (Planning permits show that a “Florida room” was added in 2000.) The landscaped backyard has an in-ground hot tub.

The Crown Heights North Historic District features a gorgeous 1890s limestone drip with extensive woodwork and other ornamentation, though there’s also a partial eviction notice, breaches, and renovations. The townhouse is an apartment building with at least seven apartments (and a certificate of occupancy for 10, according to the listing). It is furnished with panelling, fretwork, wooden cornices, coffered and sheet metal ceilings and stained glass. The impressive entrance has its own mantelpiece as well as a built-in seat, parquet floors and coffered ceilings. Some of the photos have been altered to show fantasy changes such as a basement swimming pool, while other photos show conditions such as open tranches of probes in ceilings supported by makeshift bracing.

In South Slope, an Italian wood-frame model features a mix of period details and updates. The house, built as a single family home in the 1860s, has a fairly intact salon floor with high ceilings and deep-round stucco decorations typical of the time. An original staircase with round post and curved mahogany railing leads to the upper level with two large bedrooms and a small one. The garden level has been accessed and modernized with a U-shaped kitchen, exposed beams and dining and lounge areas. Additional features include tin ceilings, air conditioning and a backyard shed with electricity.
