Williamsburg is best known for its stock of new condo buildings and converted warehouses, but the neighborhood boasts its share of historic gems in the form of 19th century townhouses. They don’t come on the market very often, so that’s why this one at 130 North 1st Street is asking nearly $4 million. Inside, it looks more like a loft than a townhouse–this is still Williamsburg, after all.

The four-story, 3,200-square-foot home has been broken up into three units: a three-bedroom, three-bathroom owner’s triplex with exclusive access to the backyard and roof deck, and two one-bedroom rentals. The owner’s triplex is especially lofty, with high ceilings, wood beams galore and painted exposed brick. The open staircase looks like it was custom designed for the space.

The open kitchen in the owner’s triplex has been totally remodeled and modernized, while the marble bathrooms include a soaking tub and radiant heated floor.

The building still has some historic details to compliment its lofty vibe, like the decorative fireplaces.

The home boasts impressive outdoor space, with 1,250 square feet of landscaped private garden, two terraces and a 750-square-foot private roof deck. The garden looks like it’s been designed specifically to host a great dinner party.

The brick facade of this 25-foot-wide home is well intact, with its own stoop and ironwork around the windows. And it’s just a half block away from Williamsburg’s main drag of Bedford Avenue.
