When we included 404 Hancock Street in a batch of Open House Picks in late July, it had just hit the market with an asking price of $1,200,000; now, six months later, the three-family brownstone is looking to fetch $990,000. The house has undergone a renovation which, while a little glossy and Home Depot-esque in terms of fixtures, looks to have been fairly comprehensive (at least for the completed portions—the listing alludes to the renovation not being finished yet). We suspect the price has further to fall. At this point, it's going to take a special house to fetch a million bucks in this part of town and, while it has some very nice woodwork, it feels like some charm was lost in the renovation.
