Not Too Shabby: 290 11th Street

Take a look at this house. No, it's not in Crown Heights or Sunset Park or Spike Lee's "Absolut Brooklyn"... we're in Park Slope! 290 11th Street is a 20' wide brick building with that bay-window action we love to see. This 2-Family house is set up as a 3BR owner's duplex with a 2BR third floor rental. There's only one picture of the interior available, but it shows nice wood-y original detail:

In exchange for no pictures, we get 2 (count 'em, 2!) open houses this weekend. Saturday and Sunday, April 9th & 10th, from 2pm-4:30pm. How do you think it stacks up to the barrage of 2-Family properties out there? Compare to smaller 2-Family's in South Slope like 279 13th Street.

Pro's: curb appeal, bay window, delivered vacant, original details, 20' x 47', 2 open houses

Con's: perhaps a bit pricey, only 1 interior picture

Ideally: get yourself a lox sammich at the Bagel Hole one morning this weekend and check out the house.


  1. Just saw it and it needs a serious gut reno--$600K+. Nice bones and details. List price is about $250K over what its worth in its current state.
