Wanna see the houses in the proposed Boerum Hill Historic District Extension?

They’re eminently landmark-worthy.  

In late October, the city Landmarks Preservation Commission put several blocks of the neighborhood onto its calendar for designation consideration.

They’re located in three areas that are west, east and north of the original Boerum Hill Historic District, which was designated in 1973. Here’s Area II.

Area II of the proposed extension is east of the existing Boerum Hill Historic District.

This is what’s included in Area II:

* The north and south sides of Bergen Street between Bond and Nevins streets

* The east side of Bond Street starting north of the corner of Bergen Street and ending south of the corner of Wyckoff Street

* The north and south sides of Wyckoff Street between Bond and Nevins streets

* The west side of Nevins Street starting north of the corner of Bergen Street and ending south of the corner of Wyckoff Street

This area has wonderful rowhouses  — including especially eye-catching houses on its street corners. For instance, there’s 151 Bond St., a blue-painted brick house on the corner of Bergen Street.

Renovation is ongoing — or planned — at various properties in this area.

The owner of 206A Bergen St. plans to add a fourth floor to the two-family house, enlarge it horizontally and create four apartments in it, city Buildings Department filings indicate.

Finance Department records show that the brownstone belongs to an LLC whose president is Samiel Hanasab.

Dixon Advisory USA, which is the metro-New York unit of an Australian real-estate investment firm, is renovating 233 Bergen St.

According to city Finance Department records, Dixon Advisory USA bought the two-family rowhouse through an LLC for $2.75 million in January.

The Nevins Street block that’s in Area II has terrific residential buildings at both ends. On the corner of Bergen Street, there’s buff-brick 150 Nevins St., which has a colorful turret and a storefront whose tenant is a menswear shop called the Brooklyn Circus.

On the corner of Wyckoff Street, there’s red-brick 164 Nevins St., whose retail tenant is Supreme Deli.
