A greenhouse is an amenity so rare in Brooklyn, home shoppers ought not ever to include it on a wishlist, but this incredibly charming renovated Greenpoint two-family happens to boast a backyard greenhouse – in addition to a covered patio, a woodworking shed, and a bench swing. The five-bedroom house at 661 Humboldt Street is currently divided into an owners duplex and third-floor rental, with a few lovely exposed brick touches and a gas fireplace.

The rental unit, accessible via a back stair, has two bedrooms (although one is quite small), an office, and cozy dining and living area.

The owner’s duplex features a large front foyer, dining and living areas on its first floor, and a guest room and the kitchen in the rear, the latter leading out onto the covered patio and backyard.

The second story has a second foyer and entry, two full baths, including an en-suite in the master, which also boasts a walk-in-closet and a windowless study, and the final bedroom, which is nearly as large as the master.

The over 1,500-square-foot backyard is truly an oasis which contains, in addition to the greenhouse, a covered patio, a woodworking shed, and a bench swing, as well as truly elegant landscaping.

Located a block away from McGolrick Park on one of the neighborhood’s quaint and colorful clapboard-row-house-lined streets, the address is much desirable and centrally located in a quiet corner near the Greenpoint-Williamsburg border. The home is a short walk from the Nassau Avenue G train, with Court Square a close enough transfer away that buyers need not fear the looming L train shutdown too intensely.
