Avery Hall Investments filed permits last week for an eight-story, 20-unit residential building at the corner of Third Avenue and St. Marks Place. The site is situated in the area where bucolic Boerum Hill meets the utilitarian factory lofts of Gowanus. The development at 125 Third Avenue will replace a one-story commercial building that Avery picked up earlier this year for $5.65 million according to city records. The team also recently broke ground on another Boerum Hill condominium at 472 Atlantic Avenue designed by the context-sensitive Morris Adjmi Architects.

When we heard that freelance packaging designer Amy Sprague has traveled to 25 countries, we assumed her apartment would be filled to the brim with souvenirs from far-off places including Morocco, Germany, Cambodia, Australia, and Japan. We thought this would be even more true when we learned of her love for antiquing. But the charming Boerum Hill studio is perfectly edited, providing just the right amount of eclectic touches, while still maintaining the feeling of a calm oasis. This is especially true of her lovely outdoor space, where a canopy of trees provides a serene escape from bustling Brooklyn.
Amy lived for several years in the Gramercy neighborhood of Manhattan, but after dividing her time in 2013 and 2014 between New York and Offenbach, Germany (a small city outside Frankfurt), she decided to make the move across the East River. We recently visited Amy at her 425-square-foot studio and saw that her apartment’s decor is just as fun and bubbly as she is. Let’s have a look at how this design-minded gal was able to tastefully display her collection of antiques and travel mementos.
Here’s an interesting opportunity at the home of Miguel’s Locks at 74 4th Avenue in Boerum Hill. The $2.75 million mixed-use building is 2,940 square feet, but has the potential to be built out to 9,942 square feet. That’s either one heck of a mansion or one great income opportunity.
When it comes to multi-family townhouses, it’s typical that the owner’s floors look a whole lot more desirable than the units that will be listed for rent. Not so at this Boerum Hill townhouse at 355 Pacific Street. The house has undergone a renovation resulting in two very lovely duplex apartments. Picking favorites is going to be a lot harder than the new owner might expect. For the whole 3,440-square-foot property, it’s asking $4.595 million.
What’s more fun than writing about a National Registry home with a tetris-like facade? Living in it! At the beginning of the year we got a peek into this Dean/Wolf Architects designed townhouse located at 300 State Street in Boerum Hill and we have to admit we were envious of the lucky occupants. And while we aren’t quite ready to plunk down the $5.65 million asking price, it’s likely this stunning one-family residence won’t be on the market for long. See more of the award-winning design
When we first saw photos of this four-story home located at 416 Pacific Street in historic Boerum Hill what came to mind was beautifully planned opulence. On the market for a whisper under $5 million, every room is full of rich fabrics and textiles with no detail left to chance. Less than two years ago it was sold as a two-family residence for a little over $3.3 million, but the current owner masterfully transformed it into a magnificent single-family home, and though it is easily convertible back to its previous form, we can’t imagine giving up a single piece of the square-footage.

If you love the wide-open layout a converted warehouse affords, you’ll want to check out this gorgeous residence at 90 Wyckoff Street in Boerum Hill because it was just reduced by nearly 10 percent. And while traditional warehouse sales of the shoe and clothing variety might save you a few hundred bucks, this one will keep a cool $800,000 in your pocket. While the $7.2 million asking price doesn’t qualify for the Boerum Hill townhouse record (a distinction currently held by the house actress Michelle Williams recently sold for $8.8 million), this home is poised to take the runner-up slot and we think it easily holds its own against the competition.
There’s a gorgeous new condo available in the recently built 233 Pacific Street. The 3,000-square-foot pad is actually a four-bedroom combination of two apartments. Add some customizations like wide-plank Brazilian cherry floors and custom paneling and molding throughout, and you have a true stunner for $2.995 million.
Back in September, we revealed that actress Michelle Williams had listed her Boerum Hill townhouse for $7.5 million. Not surprisingly, the beautiful, ivy-covered home didn’t last long on the market. According to city records released today, the “one and only” corner home has sold for $8.8 million.
Michelle Williams’s gorgeous ivy-covered Boerum Hill townhouse just hit the market. And it comes with a three-car garage.
The listing calls it “the one and only,” and for someone looking for a huge single-family home in this coveted South Brooklyn neighborhood, it just might be–assuming they can cover the steep asking price. First, the size factor: The corner townhouse is 22 feet wide, offering four stories, four and a half baths, at least six bedrooms, 12-foot-ceilings and a three-car garage that currently includes a rec room.
