The waterfront community of Red Hook is known for the fresh, unconventional vibe represented by the industrial-era buildings and wood-frame homes that line its streets. Built in the 1920s, this single-family home at 145 Van Dyke Street, asking $1,995,000, is simple and compact, yet offers the flexibility of city townhouse living. Set back from the street, modern architectural flourishes define the home’s nearly 1,500 square feet. Perks include a private garage/studio, outdoor space, and four bedrooms.

The home’s set-back space arrangement offers a covetable level of privacy. Classic architectural elements like exposed beams and brick provide contextual accents.

The ground floor is anchored by an open kitchen and dining area. In the kitchen, rough-hewn beams frame a massive prep and dining island and stylish wood-fronted cabinetry. Also on this floor is a powder room with a washer/dryer. One floor up, you’ll find a bedroom, home office, living room, and bath.

On the home’s top floor are three more large bedrooms and a bathroom. Closet space is minimal, but, as with any townhouse, you can choose to add, subtract, or reconfigure the space to suit your needs.

The home’s flexibility surfaces at ground level: A large garage can be used as a workspace or studio, and a landscaped patio offers a funky oasis for dining, entertaining, or urban gardening.
