For the first time in more than 50 years, this lovely house in Greenpoint is on the market with asking price of $3.1 million. The townhouse has been “lovingly cared for by the same family,” its listing says, but alas, they are now looking for someone else to take over the family heirloom.
Nestled along McGuinness Boulevard, the seven-bedroom, two-family house spans 5,000 square feet on a 25- by 100-foot lot. High ceilings, exposed brick, window shutters, a spiral staircase, and four decorative fireplaces give the townhouse that distinct old Brooklyn feel. There is also a good bit of modernity within the townhouse. The kitchen sports stainless steel, and the bathrooms appear to be decked out in marble tile.
The house also has a wet bar, a finished basement, a private roof deck, and that rare in-ground pool in the backyard.
