The listing calls this 1887 Bed-Stuy brownstone “Barbie’s Bohemian Bed-Stuy Dreamhouse,” and we can see why. Asking for $1,650,000, this three-story, single-family home on a tree-lined residential street has plenty of original details and lots of livable charm–including a pink fairytale kitchen and a tree-shaded backyard. With three bedrooms and space to create more, the Brooklyn townhouse offers plenty of opportunities to create your own dream house, or enjoy it as-is.

This two-family Bed-Stuy townhouse at 333 Gates Avenue is comprised of nearly 5,000 square feet of interior living space in the form of a 2,800-square-foot triplex above a garden-level apartment with a fully finished basement. But “Backyard Envy” might be the key attribute of this covetable brownstone. The team from the hit Bravo series by the same name designed the home’s back patio with a full kitchen and gas fireplace–part of 1,400 square feet of fabulously finished outdoor space including a roof garden and a 175-square-foot deck off the kitchen. All of it can be yours for $3,700,000.

This 1870s brownstone at 342 Decatur Street in the neighborhood’s landmarked Stuyvesant Heights district, asking $2,300,000, checks all of the boxes for Brooklyn townhouse living. Graceful architectural details like marble mantles and chair rails have been preserved and enhanced. A considered renovation from designer Allegra Muzzillo of ACM Interiors has added stylish and functional upgrades and luxuries. There’s a landscaped, paved backyard and a finished basement rec room. Finally, the owners’ space on the first three floors is topped by a move-in-ready floor-through apartment for rental income.

A two-bedroom condo in Brooklyn for under $1 million with $0 in monthly taxes is probably a steal no matter how you look at it, but this Bed-Stuy home is also completely beautiful and has a massive roof deck. Located at 464 Hancock Street, the $925,000 apartment also has a wood-burning fireplace, contemporary kitchen, heated floors in the bathroom, and a bonus storage room that makes a great home office or gym. And in addition to the nearly 800-square-foot deck, there’s also a lovely balcony off the primary bedroom.

Brownstone-obsessed Brooklyn developers Dahill & Bunce have put their obsession to work in this 20-foot-wide Bed-Stuy townhouse, which, after a design-savvy renovation, they’ve served up for sale at a notable-for-the-neighborhood $3.495 million. The meticulous renovation puts all the right airy, livable modern finishes into place while preserving plenty of details that distinguish the 1882 Neo-Grec townhouse at 158 Halsey Street. The resulting three-bedroom triplex–plus garden apartment–totals about 4,000 square feet. The house has an extension which puts it at a rare 60 feet deep, and there are five private outdoor areas throughout.
