House of the Day: 243 Kane Street


While we're on vacation this week, we're spotlighting some properties that have been on the market for a long time...After being purchased for $1,802,000 in June 2007, 243 Kane Street hit the market asking $2,950,000 in July; the price was increased in September to $3,400,000 and again in May 2008 to $4,075,000 before being reduced slightly to $3,995,000 in June. The price stayed there until the end of December when it was trimmed to its current asking price of $3,850,000. It's an extra-wide house in a great Cobble Hill location but the renovation, while not corner-cutting by any means, strikes us as being as much of the problem as the price. It's one of those neither-fish-nor-fowl jobs: The house has lost its historic charm but the look that replaced it is not successful enough in its modernism to make up for it. Do you agree?
