This beautiful Greenpoint townhouse is a fine example of the talents of WE Design studio. The gut renovation of a historic wood-frame townhouse offers a refreshing approach to color, texture, and light, subtle Scandinavian-style details, and warm natural elements. Located on a tree-lined stretch of Greenpoint at 190 Guernsey Street near the waterfront and McCarren Park, the home is now for sale, asking $3 million. In addition to having two units for income potential, this unique residence features an utterly charming guest studio in the back yard.

The owners’ duplex features reclaimed wood sliding doors mounted on sturdy iron tracks and repurposed barn wood shelving. Textural details, according to the listing, were inspired by India.

The kitchen features a farmhouse sink, a breakfast bar with innovative and durable Richlite paperstone. Clever built-ins are crafted from salvaged Douglas fir. Top-of-the-line appliances are from Liebherr and Bosch.

Also in the garden is a private artist/guest studio that has been completely renovated with a full bathroom, farmhouse sink, and heated polished concrete floors. This unique refuge features a sleeping loft area underneath skylight windows and a huge storage closet for flexible work/life/business options.

Downstairs in the main residence, the master bedroom has a decorative marble fireplace with a mosaic inlay, an en-suite bath with a rain shower and more custom wood shelving, and a spacious walk-in closet. Additional bedrooms are in the rear, cleverly separated with pocket doors: When combined, they can become one open space with access to the garden. A washer/dryer area makes laundry and linen storage convenient.

The separate one-bedroom apartment has a large living room with a working gas fireplace and the same clean architectural lines and warmth throughout. The kitchen here also features Richlite paperstone worktops and stainless steel appliances. The bedroom has a large walk-in closet with a window that could be converted to a nursery or office nook.
