House o' the Day writeup on this in April, when it was listed for $2,295,000, went as follows: "316 Cumberland Street has a huge parlor floor to die for, with intricate plaster ceilings and an extension that houses the modern kitchen. The house has also been upgraded recently with all new systems and windows as well. It's being used as a one-family but the ground-floor can easily be converted to a rentable apartment. All this sounds great but it will be interesting to see if it can pull off a price that's similar to some of the nicer homes currently on the market in Park Slope." Question answered. Entered into contract on 5/7/09; closed on 6/1/09; deed recorded on 6/12/09.
