Greenpoint has quietly over the past decade become one of Brooklyn’s most livable and lovable neighborhoods; its waterfront location, a diverse family-friendly vibe, proximity to McCarren Park and Williamsburg, and exciting new developments on the way are just a few of the reasons why. Townhouses here are rarer than lofts and condos, but they do pop up for lucky buyers, and this three-story home at 184 Calyer Street, asking $2.395 million, is a move-in ready example. The fully-renovated two-family house with a private garden is comprised of a spacious owners’ duplex and a good-sized one-bedroom apartment with its own outdoor space.
With approximately 2,300 square feet of living space, 12-foot ceilings make the home seem more spacious. A well-considered renovation resulted in superb finishes, appliances and fixtures and luxurious modern design while retaining the warmth and charm of an old home. Interiors feature wide-plank wood floors, central A/C, full-floor radiant heat floors, Nest thermostats, a Bosch washer/dryer, a video intercom system, and two restored gas fireplaces.
The open parlor floor of the owner’s duplex features a generous living and dining space. A large, gorgeous kitchen offers soapstone countertops and Bosch appliances. The kitchen opens onto a deck and a landscaped quiet garden that awaits family BBQs.
On the second floor you’ll find an oversized master suite with a custom closet and a second large bedroom with an adjacent bathroom. The renovated rental one-bedroom unit can generate income or easily be combined with the owner’s duplex for more single-family space.
