This freestanding home looks more like it belongs in a hobbit shire than New York City. But it’s indeed up for sale in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, at 167 Beaumont Street. It’s a cozy stucco house, set back and surrounded by a large, lovely lawn. It’s also located just a few blocks from the shores of Brighton Beach. So how much for this unique piece of property at the edge of Brooklyn? $1.2 million.

While the home looks small from the outside, it is actually quite deep and offers a nice amount of space. The living room is nicely accented by a wood-burning fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. There’s also a large entrance foyer that the current owners are using as an office space.

There’s a cathedral ceiling with a skylight over the dining room, which opens out onto the kitchen. A nice place to drink a pint of mead?

The upstairs bedrooms have unique ceilings as well, and the master bedroom is decked out with two large skylights. In total, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

There are definitely some suburban perks that come with living out in Manhattan Beach. This property has both a front and back yard, a full (but unfinished) basement, a driveway and a private garage. Plus, residents get a free pass to the private beach within nearby Kingsborough College. Doesn’t sound too bad to live like a New York City hobbit!
