It’s a two-for-one deal at a Williamsburg townhouse property at 164 Ainslie Street. The lot holds both front and back buildings separated by a large, south-facing garden courtyard. They’ve been broken up into apartments with a total of 20 rooms, 11 bedrooms and six full bathrooms. And there are still some great historic details preserved inside, like fireplaces and carved wood mantlepieces.
The front house is three stories and 4,200 square feet, and the back house is a duplex with 1,100 square feet. (The back home has a nice amount of privacy, as it boasts its own separate street entrance.) The courtyard between the buildings is spacious and decked out with furniture, shading and a barbecue grill. Can we come over and visit this summer?
The front building has been broken up into three apartments, with a ground-floor duplex holidng two bedrooms. In the duplex, there are plenty of the historic details like marble and mahogany fireplaces, the original hardwood floors and French doors.
This apartment’s kitchen has been upgraded into a sleek and modern space which leads out into the courtyard. (That’s not the only thing that’s been renovated on the property, as the back building duplex was entirely redone with oak floors, wood banisters, skylights and a new kitchen and bathrooms.)
Here’s another bedroom, but this one has a grittier, loftier Williamsburg feel to it, with the exposed ceiling beams and pipes.
A den and a rec room top off the duplex apartment. In both rooms there’s plenty of space for artwork, shelving and fun furniture, giving the home a funky and unique vibe. The entire property, in fact, is quite a unique offering for Williamsburg. Who wouldn’t love two Brooklyn buildings with a courtyard in between?
