With the weather heating up and summer around the corner, it’s time to start drooling over private outdoor spaces up for sale. A deck, backyard and roof deck designed by a landscape architect adorn this Boerum Hill townhouse at 459 Pacific Street, now on the market for $2.996 million. The 19th-century townhouse was gut renovated into a modern owner’s triplex, with a separate one-bedroom apartment with its own entrance under the stoop. An open floorplan, built-in shelving, and fancy appliances complete the interior.
To enter the triplex, the L-shaped stoop leads into a private vestibule, which then opens to the parlor floor. Light oak flooring, a working fireplace, cove moldings and built-in bookcases line the modern, open floorplan. It’s enough space for both living and dining areas.
In the rear of the parlor sits a kitchen with plenty of custom touches. Those include customized maple and copper counters, a blue ceramic farmhouse sink, maple and glass cabinetry, and handmade ceramic tiles. There’s also extra storage, including a walk-in pantry.
From the kitchen, sliding glass doors lead out to the landscape architect-designed backyard. The enviable ipe deck–with plenty of room for seating and gardening–offers space to sit down for a romantic outdoor meal under the pergola.
The master suite is located one floor above, with two additional bedrooms with built-in storage just down the hall. The top floor’s light-filled loft room can be used as a home office, play room or fourth bedroom. A door leads to the roof deck, unfortunately not pictured with the listing.
The downstairs apartment offers some extra rental income for the owner, or the townhouse could be renovated again into an expansive one-family home. Whatever happens… all that outdoor space should stay untouched!
