74 Hicks Street Makes List of This Year’s Biggest Sales

Brownstoner reports that 74 Hicks Street has sold for $6 million, making it one of the borough’s biggest sales of the year. Pretty good considering the slight haircut from the original asking price of $6.5 million.

    I thought about it a lot before I wrote the check, Finally I said to myself: what the heck? You love the ironwork, just buy the damn thing.

    This is great news for the North Heights but the purchase of the Brooklyn Eagle building on Middagh and Henry is even better news from my perspective. This building along with the old police station on Poplar are important structures to be renovated if the the North Heights is to realize true perfection. 20 Henry was on my list but fortunately this building along with its sister building are getting better looking every day.

    I know that this house went through extensive renovations. Anybody happen to know what they put into it to get this price? An elevator? Indoor pool perhaps? Seems kind of high for a relatively non-descript brownstone with no special curb-appeal other than the ironwork, which can be found on many similar houses.

    @nabeguy – check out the pictures on the Douglas Elliman site. It’s beautiful!

    I went with my friend to view the house in April. Unless you actually went inside, you can not appreciate how beautiful this house is. I’ve been in many townhouses and can say, without hesitation, that this was one of the nicest I’ve seen. It is a consummate Brooklyn Brownstone, but tastefully updated for living in the 21st Century. It really is that nice, nabeguy. Even the pictures, though nice, do not do it justice. You have to be in the space to appreciate it, which is true of all architecture. Two dimensional pictures only give a hint of what it is.

    Thank you, Manhattanite – was this your post on a website that curiously displays the Prudential Douglas Elliman logo at the bottom of the page? If so, not sure why you’re still pushing a property that already sold. :)

    @Gerry agree, someone fell in love with this place and lost their head, $6m for a 8ft wide kitchen…..wow.

    There are…places woth $6m in Brooklyn heights but this isnt one of them. However…based on the timing of the sale etc, i’d say someone in wall street decided to plunk down their end of year bonus early and good luck to the seller for cleaning up on the sale.
