When it comes to Brooklyn townhouses, Gowanus might not be one of the top places that comes to mind but there are quite a few good ones to be found. Take this cute 19th century townhouse, located at 176 12th Street. It’s going for a steep $2.15 million but it’s a two-family residence and has been revamped with loft-like interiors.
On the parlor floor you’ll find a sun-filled living room, complete with wood floors, exposed brick walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows that peer out onto the deck and expansive backyard. The neighboring chef’s kitchen boasts professional stainless steel appliances, a huge island, and plenty of cabinet space.
A set of wooden stairs leads up to the second level where the en-suite master bedroom resides, as well as the second bedroom. There is a large walk-in closet, three smaller closets, and a washer/dryer unit.
In the basement, there is another bedroom along with as many as five closets and an open space that functions as a rec room. All in all, the 1,920-square-foot abode is a pretty decent space.
