It’s official. Queens is now a millionaires playground!
After breaking the million dollar price median last summer, a new record has been set in Ridgewood.
Halstead’s Christian H. Wittmann just closed on the $1.649 million sale of 1635 Hancock Street, breaking the neighborhood’s townhouse record.
The renovated five bedroom, 4-bath townhouse has been configured as an owner triplex with income-producing rental on the ground floor.
It combines two wood burning fireplaces, exposed beams and brick with state-of-the-art security and entertainment system and a private back yard to boot.
Wittman listed the house last October for $1.7 million and it took him just 62 days to go to contract.
Maggie Leigh Marshall form Douglas Elliman brought in the buyer, who was looking for a turn-key home. Wittman said, “New Yorkers looking for a pre-war row house have been eyeing Ridgewood for years, with its quiet neighborhood feel and convenience to transportation. However, purchasing here, where it’s common for homes to reside with one owner for decades usually also meant the need for significant renovations.
“1635 Hancock St was a turn-key opportunity to own a stellar home without the pains and expense of renovating. Selling this property for a record price in only 62 days on market at a time when many NYC neighborhoods are seeing price declines confirms Ridgewood is still on the rise.”
Price records show the house (pictured top) has traded three times in the past 20 years — for $165,000 in 1998; $305,000 in 2003 and $518,000 in 2009.
The previous record was $1.6 million at 1112 Wyckoff Avenue in August 2018.
