Among the most sought-after in Brooklyn real estate, the historic Greenpoint townhouse is a dream for many, but the good ones are few and far between. This charming rose-colored wood-frame home at 61 Norman Avenue is a neighborhood gem, just a block from McCarren Park. Asking $2,750,000, the home is currently configured as a single-family residence, but it’s a legal three-family dwelling, so income potential exists. As for charm, the townhouse is blessed with a shaded front porch, a walled private patio, a bedroom terrace, and a sunroom.

Behind a wrought-iron gate, a 57-foot-deep planted front garden is framed by a pergola and seating. From here, ascend to the compact porch that fronts this 2,520-square-foot home.

At 25 feet wide, the townhouse has plenty of interior space, framed by tall ceilings, wood floors, and large windows. A bright, open living room looks out over the verdant garden.

A large, rustic kitchen features colorful tile and wood cabinetry. The adjacent dining room has plenty of space for entertaining, and a separate sunroom offers a front-row seat to the surrounding greenery. Also on the parlor floor are a bedroom and a full bath.

Upstairs, the oversized primary bedroom has perfect garden views and an equally covetable walk-in closet. A south-facing balcony awaits for a morning sunbath or an evening nightcap. Also on this floor are two more bedrooms, a family room/den, and another full bath.

For outdoor enjoyment in one of the city’s prettiest neighborhoods, a walled patio offers a gas grill and storage sheds for storing your gardening gear.

A full-height basement with a private entrance offers a rec room lined with built-in storage, a sink area, and a full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. There’s also a storage room and a laundry room, accessible from the interior stairwell.
