↑ This week's first listing is a four-bedroom, four-story townhouse in Boerum Hill, just over the border from Carroll Gardens. You first floor has a kitchen and a living/dining area, but it's your garden floor that's really made for doing the living room thing, complete with a fireplace, wet bar, and a full-width opening to the actual garden. The kitchen also opens up, only to the deck with stairs down to the garden. The master bathroom has a tub with a skylight. This "smart" home is brand new and it can be yours for $3.89 million.
↑ Up next, we have a home in Kensington billed as "truly special." This two-story, two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom has its own driveway, if you're the driving sort. Behind the house is a small patio with stairs leading to "garden studio." Inside this 1901 structure, you'll find everything has been updated to 21st century standards. "No half-measure mechanical updates here." There are new skylights, furnaces, insulation, windows, doors, siding, and more. Plus, there's a finished basement. If you're trying to save money for the house by not having a car, the Q train is about half a mile away. Asking price: $1.575 million.
↑ Here we have one that is the lap of luxury. Located in Brooklyn Heights, it's five-stories-tall (not counting the garden level or basement), can be configured for up to seven bedrooms, and overlooks the East River with views of Lower Manhattan, Governors Island, and the Statue of Liberty. The listing says the 1850s home "has preserved all the grandeur of its original 19th century design, combined with all the functions of a modern home." The parlor floor has 14-foot ceilings. There are three wood-burning fireplaces, two rear terraces, and "lots of closets." Your dining experience includes a wet bar, warming drawers, two dishwashers, and even a dumb waiter. Of course, there's also a garden. How much, you ask? A clean $15 million.
