This stunning free-standing townhouse at 19 Wolcott Street in Red Hook is a well-executed combination of sustainable construction and beautiful modern design. Innovative materials and an architect’s eye are the backdrop for 21st-century living, with enviable features that include a spacious raised deck, an outdoor garden, and a fully enclosed garage with an electrical panel ready to install a charger. This modern classic of a three-bedroom Brooklyn townhouse, asking $2,500,000, was built using energy-efficient passive house construction throughout and solar panels above.

Set back from the street behind an enclosed, landscaped front yard, the home is instantly recognizable by its geometric contemporary facade, framed by enormous glass panels that overlook the neighborhood and exterior walls of latticed brick. Compliant with the newest construction standards in the waterfront neighborhood, the house is elevated and flood-protected.

On the home’s main level, a loft-like open floor plan starts with a light-filled living room. Carefully considered architectural details include floors of wide-plank solid oak and polished concrete, iconic modern lighting fixtures, custom steel and woodwork, radiant heat, and skylights. A jewel box of a separate dining room is framed with warm wood dowel paneling, concrete flooring, and floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the street.

The open kitchen features custom cabinetry, a capacious pantry, Bosch and Miele appliances, and a large central breakfast bar. Massive steel-framed rotating glass doors open onto a private deck for al fresco dining and entertaining.

Up a sculptural stairway that conceals a chic powder room are the home’s sleeping quarters. The tranquil primary bedroom has a private terrace, bespoke wood closets, and an en-suite bath with an oak-clad WC and soaking tub.

The secondary bedrooms also have plenty of closet space. These two bedrooms share a second well-designed spa-like bath.

The aforementioned garage faces the neighborhood with a stylish wood-plank door. Beneath the garage is an extra room that can be used for storage or as a studio or office. With no modern comfort forgotten, there’s also central air, a washer and vented dryer, and Verizon Fios to keep everything running smoothly.
