When I first moved to the neighborhood, almost the entire row of houses on the east side of Waverly between Greene and Gates were boarded up. Now, just one remains. It's long been a favorite of mine, as I watched its neighbors get redone and once again become beautiful homes. Now, this last shell standing is for sale, through Brooklyn Properties.
This purchase is not for someone looking to move right in. The listing states:
Shell property in Historic Clinton Hill for sale by auction on November 12, 2:30 pm in Judge Betsy Barros' Chambers, State Supreme Court, 360 Adames St. Part 76G, room 575, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
Requirement: Buyer must be prepared to make immediate emergency repairs to back wall and roof. Both DOB and LPC are prepared to expedite permits for repairs.
I hope someone will give this place the love it needs.
