Some people might snub the idea of living in the garden unit of a townhouse, but what that often affords is a private backyard, such is the case at this Fort Greene co-op. Located at 154 Lafayette Avenue and just listed for $1.6 million, the two-bedroom home also has a large lower level that’s currently configured as a second living room but could be converted to a third bedroom suite.

Since this is the only unit that uses the lower entrance, the new tenants have access to the front garden, which could be perfect for planting or a small cafe table.

Upon entering, you’re greeted by the bright, open living space. There’s a marble fireplace mantle surrounded by exposed brick, built-in shelves, and enough room for an entryway bench.

The open kitchen is newly renovated, with granite counters and tons of cabinet space.

The two bedrooms are located behind the kitchen. The master has a whole wall of closets and opens to the rear garden. Here, you’ll find a cedar deck with built-in seating.

The second bedroom also has a good deal of closet space.

The basement has been transformed into a cool, casual den, highlighted by arched brick columns and a full wall of floor-to-ceiling closets. There’s also a separate garden entrance here. According to the listing, this 500-square-foot space “can be converted into a third bedroom with the possibility of a second full bath added near the washer/dryer.”

The building is just a few blocks from the C and G trains and a quick walk to nearly every other train line at Atlantic Avenue. You’re also two blocks from Fort Greene Park.
