25 Polhemus Place, Park Slope
This brownstone, situated on a tiny Park Slope street tucked between Carroll and Garfield, measures 16.5-feet wide, but a dramatic, oak, “lectern-style” center staircase allows residents full berth of the front and back. The same family has lived in it for five decades, and there are plenty of period details left intact, including clawfoot tubs and pedestal sinks in the bathrooms; wood-manteled fireplaces and sliding doors on the parlor floor.
Asking price: $2.375 million

150 Lincoln Place, Park Slope
Brownstones don’t often feel this airy, but the sellers of this house were able to remove some walls on the parlor level to open up the interiors. They also overhauled the HVAC system”no need for cumbersome window airconditioners”and modernized the kitchen. But key features referencing the property’s mid-1800s past have been preserved, including a mahogany center staircase, inlaid flooring, and original beams.
Asking price: $3.195 million

154 Hicks Street, Brooklyn Heights
This four-family (plus an office) has plenty of original details, including exposed brick walls, parlor-floor pocket doors, moldings, and 10 woodburning fireplaces (eight work, two need TLC). The units have market-rate renters in them, says broker Eli Ickovic, but one’s open for the new owner.

31 Monroe Place, Brooklyn Heights
There’s no iconic stoop fronting this 25-foot-wide brownstone in the heights, but many historic details remain. It’s a charming option as a starter building for a budding landlord; all but three of the rental units are market rate, says broker Nick Nicoletta. The owner’s residence has been renovated, and includes the garden and terrace.
