We always get excited when we see a Ditmas Park Victorian hit the market, but this home really took our breath away. The five-bedroom home at 554 East 18th Street has been completely reimagined by its owners, “husband/wife design enthusiasts,” according to the listing. The eclectic mix includes industrial elements like exposed beams and pipes, playful wall coverings, Scandi-chic decor, and an open floorplan. There’s a rare atrium extension, and the third floor has been transformed into a heavenly master suite. The home is asking $3,200,000.

Cool Listings, Park Slope

Fans of Bravo’s Southern Charm might confuse this home with one of the stylish Charleston pads featured in the show, but it’s actually right here in Park Slope. Another surprising fact is that the two-family carriage house at 396 15th Street was built in 2014, however, it still has plenty of character including the elegant moldings, country-chic kitchens, and beautiful built-ins. Consisting of two, three-bedroom duplexes, the property also has a shared garage, garden, two terraces, and a roof deck. It’s asking $4,650,000.

Cobble Hill, Cool Listings

If townhouses were students, this Cobble Hill home would definitely be the teacher’s pet. Unlike most townhouses anywhere in New York City, it has a 25-foot wide adjacent lot that’s used as gated parking, as well as 3,500 square feet of outdoor space that looks like it could be right out of a Napa Valley vineyard. The $12,750,000 house is currently configured as an owner’s triplex and an income-generating garden-level apartment, though it could easily be transformed into a grand, single-family residence.

This three-bedroom condo has much of what you’d expect from a home within a Park Slope brownstone, but it’s also got a couple of tricks up its sleeve. First, the lower level on the garden floor retains the home’s original brick arches, which run the entire length of the space. And then, the gorgeous rear garden was designed by Future Green Studio, who also worked on projects at The Met, Nowadays, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Located at 134 Berkeley Place, the home is asking $2,575,000.

condos, Downtown Brooklyn, New Developments

From its sky-high outdoor infinity pool to the chic interior finishes designed by Katherine Newman, no details were overlooked at Brooklyn Point, the 720-foot residential tower in Downtown Brooklyn. After topping out last spring, officially becoming the borough’s tallest tower, and commencing closings and first move-ins this summer, new photos of the building’s model unit were released in September, which show off the eclectic interiors by designer Charlie Ferrer.

Another statue of the late United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is coming to Brooklyn next year. After Ginsburg’s death last month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced plans to honor the New York City native with a statue in the borough, likely in Brooklyn Bridge Park. And last week artists Gillie and Marc Schattner announced plans to install another statue of Ginsburg at mixed-use development City Point in Downtown Brooklyn.

Bed Stuy, Cool Listings

This unique Bed-Stuy cottage is full of surprises right from the start. The cast-iron railings lend way to a New Orleans-style balcony, made even more inviting with flower boxes and hanging planters. The large metal double doors on the first floor were salvaged from the Domino Sugar Factory, and there are historic cast-iron supports and wooden ceiling beams inside. And with the efficient two-story layout, the $950,000 asking price is just right.

A velour reading nook built into the side of a cabinet, candy-colored accents everywhere, an abstract mural on the backyard fence–these are just some of the funky, whimsical touches you’ll find throughout this Brooklyn Heights townhouse. Located at 286 Hicks Street and asking $6,250,000, the five-bedroom home “encourages you to really live and play your best life,” as the listing says. Originally a two-family, it’s been converted back to a single-family residence, including a rear extension on the first two floors, so there’s plenty of space for everyone and all your needs.

From an aesthetic perspective, this Fort Greene condo has a lot to talk about–gorgeous plaster ceiling moldings, original brick arches, and creative and contemporary flourishes. But it’s also got quite a lot going for it in terms of practicality. For $3,250,000, the home at 407 Clermont Avenue has three floors, three bedrooms, a multi-tiered garden and deck, and a massive basement rec room that’s been transformed into a home gym, crafting area, and home office.

Cool Listings, Williamsburg

This uber-modern townhouse at 107 South 4th Street looks nothing like any of its Williamsburg neighbors, with its honeycomb and concrete facade. And inside, the surprises keep coming. The layout was designed as an “upside-down house” so that the kitchen and main living spaces could take advantage of the East River and skyline views, and all throughout, you’ll find “fine-art, high-design, and Mid-Century modern pedigree,” as the listing puts it. The four-bedroom house is on the market for $6,500,000.
