We made it through another week! What better way to celebrate this feat than by scoping out the topmost real estate in New York City? For the weekend of March 11 and 12, Brooklyn is king: four out of our five picks are located across the sprawling, desirable borough. From the Williamsburg waterfront to the picturesque Fort Greene Park in Clinton Hills, Brooklyn offers a little something for everyone. But if none of the below homes do it for you, there are hundreds of additional listings waiting for you on StreetEasy! Don’t forget to save your favorites as you browse.
We begin our tour of open houses for the weekend of March 11 and 12 with this spacious, investor-friendly condo. Gorgeous hardwood flooring covers the home’s approximately 1,200 square feet of space. A massive kitchen with an eat-in island opens up directly into the dining and living rooms. Both of the bedrooms come with their own en-suite bathrooms, while a wallpapered half-bath is perfect for guests. Located in Manhattan Valley within blocks of Morningside, Central and Riverside Parks, this home is our lone Manhattan pick on this week’s list.
Next up is this polished Prospect Heights 2-bedroom with singular design features. A large pass-through window provides flow between the state-of-the-art kitchen and the wider living space. Smart shelving with built-in down lights creates a special space to display art and other collectibles in the dining nook. And both bedrooms come equipped with custom storage and closet spaces.
Let’s head over to Williamsburg next, where this breathtaking loft patiently awaits its fortunate new owner. Large exposures flood the space with light, illuminating the home’s incredible mix of historic quirk and industrial appeal. Once you’ve dutifully admired the exposed brick in the sizable bedroom and the wood beams sitting atop the living room’s 12-foot-high ceilings, make your way up the slate-gray spiral staircase. At the top you’ll find the entrance to your very own private roof deck with stunning skyline views!
Elegant doesn’t even begin to cover our next pick, a 2-bedroom Clinton Hills apartment located in a mansion built circa the 1890s. Traces of the opulent original home are sprinkled throughout the remarkable unit: Crown molding accents the 10-foot-high ceilings, wood shutters add depth to the windows and a marble mantle gleams in one of the two gigantic bedrooms. But the home has been thoughtfully updated where it counts, providing a chic kitchen and modern bathroom.
We’re closing out our list of NYC open houses for March 11 and 12 with this truly unique Carroll Gardens condo. This residence brings the drama, with moody, painted walls and warm, ornate lighting. High-end gold finishes are expertly placed throughout, from the lustrous kitchen cabinets to the sparkling bathroom fixtures. The primary bedroom is the picture of luxury, with its grandiose marble fireplace and its two large windows overlooking the neighborhood.
