We’re sensing a tiny-townhouse-as-condo-alternative trend here; and why not? Low taxes, backyard space, and basement storage are hard to pass up. This particular version is a stylishly renovated three-bedroom home at 264 Bainbridge Street in pretty Stuyvesant Heights, with an even tinier–but no less adorable–backyard shed in the covetable backyard. It’s asking a diminutive-seeming $950,000.
Though this house might be small, it’s big on style, with a considered renovation that includes a big, sunny eat-in kitchen with warm wood open shelving, vintage lights, a Bertazzoni range and a Bosch dishwasher to complement the rustic white subway tile and exposed brick surroundings.
Through a custom-designed wrought iron gate is a small but fittingly adorable outdoor oasis with a very cool shed in the back (think home office, writer’s retreat, she-shed or man cave).
The home’s front entrance is a good introduction to what’s inside, with a clean mosaic tile patterned floor. The sunny living room has whitewashed brick walls big windows; there’s a powder room on this floor as well.
Upstairs are two bedrooms and a well-designed, on-trend master bath with a claw foot tub, pedestal sink, and more cool mosaic tiles.
On the garden level is a third bedroom and private full bath. It works as an in-law suite, and plans exist for conversion to a two-family dwelling. Also down here is a small pantry space–and additional storage or sitting-room space–with a washer/dryer. More good news: The property has an additional buildable 1,200 square feet, so the possibilities abound.
