Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill neighborhood is home to 320 Washington Avenue, also known as the former Graham Home for Old Ladies.
The landmarked building, located within the historic district, is recognizable for its unusual facade and circular driveway and is adjacent to Underwood Park.
At this address, unit #4A (pictured top) recently sold for $1.359 million, well above the asking price of $1.2 million, and after only 13 days on the market, following a flurry of bids.
Brad Bateman of Compass represented the seller, while Susan Lee of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.
Bateman said that when developing the marketing strategy for the two-bedroom, 2-bath home, “I encouraged my seller to do some cosmetic renovations in addition to painting and staging. We upgraded both bathrooms, changed out the hardware on every door and closet, sanded the floors and made them lighter to appeal to current aesthetic tastes, put in a new stainless steel fridge, and painted the entire apartment.”
The home was then priced competitively in the hope of getting multiple offers. The low pricing paid off after the open house, when “a bidding war ensued,” said Bateman.
