While this compact and cute townhouse at 98 Pioneer Street on one of Red Hook‘s most Red Hook-y blocks may not be a grand mansion, at 2,148 square feet, it’s bigger than most condos in its ($1.6 million) price range, and there’s plenty of value packed in. First, a separate studio apartment with a garage and workshop, renovated and suitably adorable with garden access, is ready to be rented for extra income or used as a workspace or guest suite. There’s a lovely landscaped garden, two additional balconies and plenty of thoughtful, modern renovations that you might find in newly-minted apartments with far less charm.

The loft-like, light-filled open living space totally nails rustic charm as you enter from tree-lined Pioneer Street. White beamed ceilings, an original marble-mantled wood-burning fireplace and wide plank hardwood floors are just a few of the reasons. A thoroughly modern kitchen features butcher block countertops, white lacquer cabinets and a pretty rad industrial cast iron six-burner Garland stove.

Off the kitchen through sliding glass doors, an oversized terrace hand-laid with herringbone brickwork sits above a lovely planted garden featuring a flowering crepe myrtle tree. The space comes equipped with a natural gas grill and plenty of room for al fresco dining.

Upstairs you’ll find two good-sized bedrooms, a second terrace with views, another wood-burning fireplace, two skylights and more beamed ceilings. A clean, white-tiled bathroom is spacious and skylit.

Back on the garden level, an open studio space with a full kitchen and bath is done in the same modern rustic style. Definitely something you don’t get with a condo, it’s a great opportunity to collect income or have an extra guest suite–or turn the space into an additional bedroom or family/media/play room.

As if this weren’t special enough, the property features a separate garage–with enough space for a car and a workshop–accessible through a private alley. There’s also more FAR if you want to add on later.

Pioneer street is filled with quaint 19th-century row houses that embody Red Hook‘s rich seafaring history and current quirky, hip community vibe. Coffey Park is just down the block, and hotspots like Pioneer Works arts center and restaurants and shops on Van Brunt Street are steps away.
