It’s easy to see why this gorgeous townhouse at 175 Eckford Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn was recently featured in a global design magazine. Rustic features like painted white beams, splashes of exposed brick and antique wide-plank floors effortlessly coexist with more modern touches reflected in concrete block walls, Caesarstone countertops, sleek poured radiant heated concrete floors, and a curtain wall of glass that looks out to a pastoral backyard.
The interiors also come flooded with light thanks to a distinctive recessed side window, oversized skylights, and floor-to-ceiling windows with custom window seats that are perfect for curling up with a book, pondering the history of your beautiful new home, or just looking out to your massive landscaped garden.
A sleek staircase steel and wood staircase starting at the living room leads you to the second floor which hosts three bedrooms each equipped with ample storage space and wonderfully high ceilings. All throughout the home you’ll be stepping across beautifully restored wood floors reclaimed from an Upstate barn.
Unexpectedly, the large bathroom is one of home’s most beautiful, featuring an industrial sand-blasted glass door that partitions the space into a windowed wet room with shower and soaking tub at one side, and a vanity and toilet on the other. Exposed brick juxtaposes well against the the bathroom’s clean, white tiled walls, and a teal and white tiled floor adds a pop of fun and color, keeping the space from feeling overly polished.
The lower level offers a large windowed room that can be used as a play room or a guest room with a garden walkout. There are also loads of custom built-ins here plus a second oversized bathroom much like the one above.
This lovely home is just a stone’s throw away from the wonderful offer of both Greenpoint and Williamsburg. McCarren Park, great subways, and some of the coolest and most highly rated boutiques and restaurants are just steps away from your front door.
