This townhouse clad in zinc and Brazilian Ipe definitely doesn’t look like the rest in Prospect Heights, and that may be its biggest selling point. The modernist single-family home is like a secret hideaway in the middle of Brooklyn–enter through the gate on Underhill Avenue and find yourself in a landscaped corridor/front yard complete with bamboo, native grasses, and hydrangeas. Pair it with the sleek contemporary interiors, and this home earns its $1,750,000 price tag.

In addition to the entrance corridor, there’s an artificial turf front yard and a side yard that wraps around to the backyard. There’s an irrigation system to take care of all the whimsical plants, and enough room in the side yard for a barbecue, lounging, and herb and vegetable gardens.

The first floor is an open living room and kitchen with rich walnut floors that can be found throughout. A floor-to-ceiling folding glass wall lets in tons of natural light. The kitchen has charcoal-hued cabinetry, a Viking stove with an induction cooktop, dishwaser, and engineered granite counters.

Up the walnut and wrought-iron floating staircase, the second floor holds two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a laundry closet. The main bedroom can hold a king-sized bed and has custom cabinetry and Ipe paneling.

There’s also a lower level with an open rec room and another full bath that could easily be another bedroom suite. There are radiant heat floors on this level and a wall of glass doors that open to a walled lower-level patio.

As the listing explains, “there is an option to buy a separate 1000 sq ft parcel of land that sits directly behind the property,” which would be perfect for a pool.
