We wrote about 147 St. James Place in Clinton Hill in November 2006 when it had a tasty price tag of $800,000 but wasn't getting sold; turns out there were major issues with SRO tenants that were holding things up. The four-story house finally changed hands for $995,000 last January, and the new owner wasted no time in getting cracking on a full-scale renovation. While we love the fact that he managed to preserve the killer detail on the parlor floor, we're not so sure that aesthetic was carried out through the rest of the house. We wish the listing had included a photo of the rear facade which was completely ripped open and redone. (Anyone with a view care to send in a photo?) Anyway, the ask on the house is now $1,950,000. Seems like a stretch to us, though we wouldn't mind seeing that kind of comp just a couple of blocks from our house!
