We’ve rounded up some of the more interesting Ditmas Park open house listings for this weekend. Any thoughts on these places?

390 Rugby Road #5C
List Price: $265,000; maintenance/common charges: $430
Size: Studio, one bathroom
Details: For single person or happy couple who wishes to live close to both the Cortelyou Road Q train station or Newkirk Plaza B and Q, this recently renovated Rugby Road studio, right off of Cortelyou Road, is a great place and a sound investment. With a low price tag and maintenance, you are definitely getting a proverbial bargain for a thief. The “like-new” windowed kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, and ample cabinet and modest counter space. It appears there may even be room for an eat-in bistro or small dinette set. There is a large L-shaped living/dining room, with sleeping alcove that fits a queen-sized bed, so even though it’s a “studio,” it’s really not unlike having a one bedroom. Hardwood floors throughout, and western exposure features open sky views and Cortelyou homes. Located in an elevator building with a laundry room, parking garage, and part-time doorman.
Open House: Sunday, November 15, 1-2:30pm

400 East 17th Street #201
List Price: $525,000; maintenance/common charges: $736
Size: Two bedrooms, one bathroom
Details: Attractive, airy, spacious, and slightly less than conventional co-op apartment with 380 square-feet of private outdoor space. Recently updated and with hardwood floors throughout, this “lovingly maintained” apartment has an inviting open floor plan, and the modern kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher) plus granite countertops. The master bedroom is nothing short of spacious, and the building has a live-in super, part-time doorman, laundry room, elevator, bike storage, parking (wait list), and is cat-friendly.
Open House: Sunday, November 15, 11:30am to 1pm

456 East 16th Street
List Price: $1,395,000
Size: Five bedrooms, two bathrooms
Details: Step back in time as you walk through the doors of this impressive, eight-room Victorian charmer. Adorned with long-preserved details such as crown moldings, original staircase, built-ins, hardwood floors and pocket doors, this enormous house has it all, including a large backyard with tons of greenery. We’re going to keep our fingers crossed and hope but not assume that the kitchen and bathrooms are spiffy, impressive and peppered with lots of stainless steel appliances and all other manner of attractive and modern conveniences. Because, while pictures do tell a story, if there aren’t any it’s hard to tell anything.
Open House: Sunday, November 15, 2-4pm
