New, 4 comments

Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we - you guessed it - take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses on the market. Got tips? Send 'em here.


Our first entry this week is a townhouse in Greenwood that really has a lot to offer. In addition to its four bedrooms (you also have a family room that could double as a guest room), it utilized passive house design. That focuses on the design of the house to maintain a constant temperature with little use of heating or cooling systems. Plus, there are solar panels on the roof! But the amenities don’t end there. You also have a heated garage and two terraces. The R train is about two blocks away. It seeks $3.495 million.


Up next, we head to Bedford-Stuyvesant and a townhouse configured as a three-bedroomowner’s triplex over a one-bedroom garden level apartment. There are fireplaces, both working and decorative. There is also red oak herringbone flooring and outdoor space. The C train and Franklin Avenue Shuttle are less then 10 minutes away. How much? $2.75 million.


Our third stop is a little yellow townhouse in Park Slope you *might* call charming. The listing says it will give you "the feel of mini Sicilian or Spanish villa." It has two bedroomsand two full bathrooms. You’ll also find a sunken living room, hardwood flooring, more than ample garden space, and a small balcony off of one of the bedrooms. The R train is about three blocks away and Prospect Park is about four-and-a-half blocks away. It can be yours for $1.5 million.


Heading to the Fort Greene Historic District, we have a townhouse built in the 1850s. "Here comes the sun," calls out the listing. It’s configured as a five-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom owner’s triplex over a one-bedroom, one-bathroom garden level apartment. You’ll find yourself under three blocks from Fort Greene Park and five blocks from the G train. It’s also walking distance from Barclays Center and Atlantic Terminal. It’s listed at an even $3 million.


Finally, we head to lovely Brooklyn Heights and an "important American home" that "provides a clear view into the past, and home for the best days yet to come." It’s configured as a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom owner’s triplex over a one-bedroom, one-bathroom garden level apartment. The rooms on the top floor have low ceilings. Otherwise, it has plenty of the charm that you associate with the neighborhood, including Flemish brick work, pocket doors, wood-burning fireplaces, and a landscaped garden. The A/C are about a block away at High Street and the 2/3 are about four blocks away at Clark Street. Plus, there is Cadman Plaza Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park to take in. Asking price: $8.65 million.
