On a pretty Boerum Hill, Brooklyn block, near what seems like just about everything, this classic four-story brick townhouse, asking $3.195 million, offers plenty of space and a charming back yard, no renovation required. All the brownstone living boxes are checked: front and back garden, stoop, original details, fireplaces, lots of closets.
A front courtyard leads to a charming stoop, bringing you up to the parlor level, where you’ll find an open living and entertaining space with 10-foot ceilings, historic details and warm wood floors. Also present and accounted for are fireplaces with marble mantels, period moldings, original pocket doors and shutters and floor-to-ceiling windows with etched glass.
Downstairs on the garden level is a formal dining room framed by exposed brick.
A spacious eat-in kitchen opens onto a private landscaped garden. The cozy kitchen is well-designed and welcoming, with original built-ins, lots of storage and a large pantry. Also on this level are a half bath and plenty of closets.
The third floor features offers two big bedrooms with a shared bath. The master bedroom is a lovely retreat with pine plank flooring and a spacious walk-in closet.
On the home’s top floor are two more large bedrooms and a bath, perfect for office or den space or more bedrooms. Expect plenty of gorgeous light up here in addition to peace and quiet.
Even more storage can be found downstairs in the roomy basement, along with a washer/dryer.
