Tucked into one of the city’s more picturesque enclaves on Orange Street in Brooklyn Heights, this four-story, nearly-3,000-square-foot townhouse offers modern comforts with a nod to its historic surroundings. At an ask that doesn’t raise eyebrows in a neighborhood whose graceful townhouses range from pricey to record-setting–sometimes regardless of interior state–this brick-clad row house, while not loaded with grand details, gets warmth from wood beams, exposed brick, a wood-burning fireplace and restored window moldings while providing turnkey touches like central air and an updated chef’s kitchen. Another plus is a private garage, not exactly common in brownstone Brooklyn.

At 20 feet wide with four stories to work with, there’s plenty of space in the home’s four-bedroom, three-bath single-family configuration, though the home is listed as a three-family, so conversion for rental income is a possibility. It’s also worth noting that the current owners appear to have been getting $14,000 a month on the rental market for the (entire) house for several years before deciding to sell.

The home’s first floor is airy and open, made to look even more spacious; the pretty living room has built-ins and a fireplace, and there’s an office in the back.

A recently-renovated galley kitchen boasts a six-burner Viking stove and dishwasher (according to the listing, though those red knobs look more Wolf than Viking) dark wood floors, tons of windows and a great view out back in addition to a beamed ceiling.

Just off the kitchen is the dining room, which opens up to a sizable back patio via floor-to-ceiling French doors that let in lots of light. The dining room occupies most of the second floor, so there’s plenty of room for entertaining. There is also a third floor terrace, adding up to 260 square feet of outdoor space.

There are four bedrooms, all renovated but retaining the warmth of dark wood floors plus crown moldings and lots of built-in shelving.

Baths look clean and modern, more of the same tasteful mix of old and new.

The neighborhood is likely the biggest draw here; of the many charming streets in the neighborhood, the historic “fruit streets”–Orange, Pineapple, Cranberry–are among the most coveted. Everything that makes the Heights so popular is steps away, including the Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Cadman Plaza with its Greenmarket, Henry Street restaurants, and convenient transportation. Views are lovely in every direction, and the neighbors are as friendly as ever.
