At a mere 15 feet wide and two stories high, this compact townhouse at 629 President Street is priced to compete with–and beat–many a smaller condo at $1.825 million. Hiding in plain sight on a street of similarly cute and compact brick townhomes at the spot where Park Slope meets Gowanus (making it also home to just about every amazing amenity in Brooklyn) this otherwise nondescript 1900s home becomes a surprise of a sweet, spacious and bright farmhouse once you step inside. It’s a pretty neat trick.
An open-plan living area spans the parlor floor, framed by pale oak flooring. Toward the back is a welcoming farmhouse-style kitchen, complete with colorful and functional country-chic fixtures and finishes–and room for the whole family. Open shelving, white subway tile, a carved marble mantle and exposed brick continue both the rustic and the chic vibe. A windowed pantry/laundry room is one of many things you won’t find in a condo around these parts. On the convenience side there’s a full bath on this floor as well.
A completely charming rear garden offers a red brick patio surrounded by planting beds, ready for gardening, outdoor dining or enjoying a peaceful country-in-the-city moment.
Upstairs you’ll find two sizeable bedrooms–one with an additional study/nursery. A full bath is calm, cool and classic in white subway tile, black-and-white hexagonal tile floor and traditional fixtures.
The move-in-ready house boasts new double-hung wood windows, a large, clean basement for storage and updated mechanicals.
