Lookey Lou – 24 Remsen Street

There will be an Open House at 24 Remsen Street this Sunday (5/16) from noon – 2pm hosted by MyHomeBrooklyn. The property is currently high-end rentals but was redeveloped with condos in mind.

MHB’s Donald Brennan tells us, “The point of the open house is not to promote this property itself, with its walk-in closets, marble flooring, terra cotta details and wood-burning fireplaces, but to show what my team and I at MyHome, Brooklyn plan to do in the future, and to educate interested parties about this new style of Brooklyn development, where buyers and developer partner before the property is purchased and work in concert to deliver a custom home at a fair price. They can properly inspect the work and talk about the MyHome, Brooklyn venture, a philosophy that should serve as an antidote to the speculative overdevelopment of the last decade.”

He adds that in 1902, the original owner of the property added a squash court – the first one in Brooklyn. (See PDF of property’s history)

My Home Brooklyn also sponsors Homer Fink’s Hidden Brooklyn Heights Walking Tour.  Next walk is tomorrow 5/15.  Buy tickets here.

    In the clip, the word unique is used five times. Does repetition make the wallet open faster?

    I don’t see–or hear–any mention of price, however. Any clue? Sixty-jillion per fireplace?

    Its nice but NOT all that great. For the money I would suggest a 5 bedroom center hall colonial in Westport, CT with a swimming pool and a 3 car garage. After schlepping groceies, etc. through the Heights a few times you will know what I mean.
