Contemporary ‘upside down’ townhouse in Boerum Hill asks $1.6M
Located in the quintessentially Brooklyn neighborhood of Boerum Hill, this contemporary-design carriage house is a dramatic example of loft-meets-townhouse on a landmarked block. Seeking $1.649 million, the home at 139 Bond Street offers modern perks that you’d expect in a new apartment, such as split-system A/C and a washer-dryer, with the added bonus of multi-level townhouse living and a gorgeous roof deck
The building’s striking multi-windowed facade made of dark wood and old brick is in keeping with the historic neighborhood. The huge windows fill the carriage house with light.
The home’s current layout differs from the average townhouse in that the master bedroom is on the lowest level. But that’s where you’ll find the most space, which allows for a large walk-through closet and dressing area. A conveniently-located laundry room and storage are here as well.
Up one flight you’ll find a bright, light-filled kitchen with a unique round built-in dining table.
A half- flight up is the living room, complete with garden views. Up a little further is a second bedroom (or office, depending on your needs.). Across the width of the carriage house a skylight brings in the sky, day and night.
Finally, up a few steps is a decked and planted roof terrace. Rustic brick walls add the perfect touch of brownstone Brooklyn magic.
