If you find yourself drawn to the idea of living in Greenpoint, you’re definitely not alone. An afternoon in the neighborhood that was until recently a sleepy north Brooklyn Polish enclave on the waterfront with artists’ lofts and good schools would convince almost anyone that it’s a perfect place to call home. There’s a building boom happening along the river, new ferry service has arrived and the G train is becoming the popular underdog. All of that makes this two-bedroom condominium at 182 Huron Street a hot prospect, though the 1,250-foot duplex with a landscaped garden makes a good case all on its own.
Oversized windows and sliding glass doors on the upper floor bring in lots of light and look out onto a tranquil garden, while the lower floor is downright cozy with its gas fireplace. The home’s current owners have created a perfect space for indoor/outdoor dining and entertaining, but a flexible floor plan would also work well for a two-bedroom home with a master bedroom suite downstairs.
The kitchen is functional and up-to-date, with granite countertops and stainless steel GE appliances.
The lower-level master suite has an enormous walk-in closet and a washer-dryer, and the apartment has closets at every turn. The professionally landscaped patio/garden is definitely a highlight, perfect for gardening, partying or just getting your daily sunshine quota. You’re also getting a gas fireplace, a sauna and a Jacuzzi tub–so you can just move in and start living.
