If you’ve got $4,900,000, you don’t have to choose between an artist’s loft and a townhouse with room for guests or tenants, or between city living and having a garage. This rare north Brooklyn townhouse at 394 Union Avenue in the heart of Williamsburg offers two floors of townhouse living with plenty of flexibility. There’s garage parking, a huge art/music studio, a guest suite with its own kitchen, and plenty of outdoor terrace space for entertaining.
This renovated home of nearly 4,000 square feet is anchored by a street-level private garage and a massive art studio. Even on the ground floor, skylights throughout allow light to flood the space.
The main second-floor living space offers a large living room and updated kitchen, with Brazilian hardwood floors throughout. The dining area opens onto a huge paved deck through a wall of glass. Looking out over the backyards of Williamsburg, this sprawling outdoor space is perfect for growing your garden and summer entertaining.
A spacious bedroom–large enough to become two–features a wall of large closets and noise-blocking windows. A luxurious bath has five fixtures, skylights, and custom tiles. In addition to the glazed rear wall, this level gets light from seven skylights.
On the ground level, 11-foot ceilings and nine skylights frame a cavernous studio. Use it as an art or music space, or convert the space into more bedrooms.
Also on this level, a fully separate guest suite features a galley kitchen and a full bath with a soaking tub and dual sinks. Two office areas and plenty of closets round out this lower living space.
Last, but not least, is that elusive city convenience: a real garage. Though this unusual property is just steps from the L and G trains, keeping a car for long trips is easy with this private garage just down a hallway from home.
