Located in the bustling heart of Red Hook–which recently enjoyed a turn as Brooklyn’s most expensive neighborhood–this turn-of-the-century row house at 91 Pioneer Street may not be mansion-sized, but at $1.35 million, it looks like a sweet condo alternative. It’s a legal two-family dwelling though it’s currently being used as a single-family home.

The home’s upper two floors have original heart pine plank flooring adding warmth to clean, white walls. An entry hallway leads to the front parlor where you’ll find a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of light.

In the rear parlor, a good-sized bedroom overlooks the home’s enchanting garden.

Downstairs, a terracotta-tiled floor frames the space along with rustic limed brick walls and exposed beams. An equally rustic kitchen and dining area features a pot-belly stove and a hammock. Also down here is a utility room with washer/ dryer hookups and a bathroom with a European-style shower–which may refer to a curbless step-in stall shower, or someting else entirely.

The garden, blessed by unobstructed southern light, is filled with greenery and flowers, including a blooming magnolia tree.

Upstairs on the top floor is a master bedroom suite that spans the entire floor but could easily be converted to two bedrooms. A small den could just as easily become another bathroom. Currently in the suite is a partially-enclosed bathroom with an original claw-foot tub and an antique oval pedestal sink.

Adding curb appeal and a warm welcome is a cheerful crimson front door.

The home gets some high-tech infrastructure bonus points–and some eco-points as well: The heating system has been upgraded to a super-high efficiency Bosch boiler with on-demand hot water and heating. And, possibly coolest of all, the house has a green roof to help regulate the temperature inside.
