Topanga Canyon retreat? Stinson Beach surf shack? If you guessed either you’d be wrong, but this fully-detached single-family home at 71 Dikeman Street in Red Hook, asking $2.5 million, definitely has a California bohemian vibe that’s perfect for the laid-back waterfront neighborhood. In addition to a well-executed renovation, the two-story house has a 50-foot landscaped garden with an outdoor kitchen that’s the picture of summer leisure living.
This unique townhouse offers a level of privacy you can only get in a single-family house. Interiors have been designed for comfort and style, surrounded by the culture and convenience of Red Hook, Brooklyn.
This thoroughly modern townhouse is configured to offer three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths with bright, open living spaces comprising the main level. A well-equipped kitchen has a center island and a breakfast nook; the living area opens onto a deck.
Upstairs there are double-height ceilings throughout. The master suite gets a terrace, naturally.
One bedroom is currently being used as an office space with a sleeping loft.
In true endless summer style, the home’s interiors extend seamlessly into a garden oasis designed by Terzi and Lewis of New Eco Landscapers. An orderly–but party-ready–deck and outdoor kitchen complement a super-chill patio verdant with potted herbs and plants and surrounded by Japanese maple, rhododendrons, mugo pine and feather grass. Grow your own herbs and vegetables in your own backyard farm and cook them up outdoors.
City-friendly creature comforts include central air and a host of top-notch restaurants, cafes and an IKEA store just around the corner.
