This duplex at 50 3rd Avenue in Boerum Hill definitely looks like it could’ve been designed by Chip and Joanna Gaines. Though we’re pretty sure they didn’t travel to Brooklyn to design this two-bedroom condo, it has plenty of their famous “modern farmhouse” design elements, most notably reclaimed wood on the walls and ceiling. The aesthetic is carried over to the backyard, where twinkly lights and climbing vines set the stage for a true outdoor oasis. The apartment has just listed for $1,474,000.

There’s a lot to love about this $5.9 million Boerum Hill townhouse. The four-floor owner’s residence has five bedrooms, including a top-floor master suite with an entire ceiling of skylights. It also has a convenient deck off the kitchen. But what makes this such a great investment is the garden-level, income-generating rental apartment. It’s a one-bedroom unit, but it opens directly to the lovely backyard.
