And that’s only one of the many possibilities for this unusual Brooklyn property. On a quaint and classic Brooklyn block in Boerum Hill, this three-family row house at 104 Butler Street is currently being used as a source of income from three separate apartments. Through the picturesque garden at the back, a three-story, four-bedroom carriage house is occupied by the home’s current owners. A new owner could leave the setup as-is, use both of these 19th-century houses as a multi-generational home for family, or create condos in the front, with many more options imaginable. The ask is $3.45 million.

Altogether, this four-unit property consists of two 19th century buildings on a 20-by-100-foot lot. The 2,700-square-foot front building is currently being used as a three-family rental.

The 1,500-square-foot triplex carriage house has four-bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. Between the two is a lovely and spacious landscaped garden.

Original details can be found throughout both homes; while interiors don’t look brand-new, you’ll have high ceilings, freshly painted walls, wood flooring and cute and useful kitchens.

In the carriage house, bedrooms are cozy treetop retreats with what looks to be at least one working fireplace. As an alternative to rental income, the listing suggests making “it all your private home, with room for multiple generations if it suits your needs,” which sounds like a great idea to us. Rooftop terraces can be added for more outdoor space with those great Brooklyn rooftop views.

It’s hard to beat Boerum Hill for convenience to transportation and proximity to other neighborhoods (including Barclays Center and Downtown Brooklyn); you’re just around the corner from Smith Street, lined with great spots for shopping, dining and a hot or cold brew.
