What Red Hook lacks in accessibility it certainly makes up for in charm, and this lovely two-family rowhouse at 168 Coffey Street is definitely worth some extra travel time. Built in 1867 as one of seven similar houses on the cobblestone block, it boasts a brick facade, quaint front garden, and a large backyard. Plus, if you don’t mind commuting on the open seas, the $2.5 million home is just five blocks from the NYC Ferry stop.

The 2,700-square-foot property is divided into two units but could be reconfigured as a single-family home. The listing also notes that the home isn’t landmarking, meaning a demo or addition are possible, though we can’t imagine anyone wanting to do away with the inherent charm!

A duplex with two bedrooms, two living rooms, and two kitchens occupies the parlor and second floors. The front rooms get great southern light and have decorative fireplaces and wide-plank floors. Both kitchens overlook the rear garden.

The garden level houses a one-bedroom unit with its own entrance under the stoop.

There’s also a full-height basement with the utility room and plenty of storage space. In addition to the ferry proximity, Fairway, Brooklyn Crab, Red Hook Winery, IKEA, and Pioneer Works are all nearby.
