Douglas Elliman.

↑In Kensington, a fully detached three-family townhouse that has come to the market for the first time in 50 years is asking $2.47 million. There are seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, three kitchens, an English basement, and a plethora of storage space that includes “secret walk-in closets,” a two-car garage, and a shared driveway.


↑A three-family townhouse in Bed-Stuy offers the best of both worlds and is going for $1.6 million. The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is complete with historic details that includes decorative fireplaces, fretwork, original molding, and even a claw foot tub along with plenty of more contemporary details like subway tiled bathrooms and kitchens. There is a laundry room, a spacious backyard, and the ability to add a roof deck. [Floorplan]

↑In Prospect Heights, an elegant single-family home spanning 3,200 square feet is asking $2.9 million. Brokerbabble describes this abode, located a short walk from Prospect Park, as an “inverted townhouse” since the main living space is on the top floor near the roof deck. An elevator transports you through the five floors while the second and third floors give way to the home’s three bedrooms along with two walk-in closets, two of the home’s three bathrooms, and a laundry room. The top floor boast a roof deck with views of the city’s skyline and two terraces. [Floorplan]

↑The listing description for this four-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home in Fort Greene is rather short and doesn’t reveal much, other than the home looks like something “right out of a shelter magazine.” Nevertheless, the $4.25 million home is set up as a multi-family and is complete with two wood-burning fireplaces, wide oak floors, high ceilings, a huge chef’s kitchen with sleek appliances, and a private garden.

↑One of the lovely landmarked townhouses that make up the Warren Place Mews in Cobble Hill is going for $2.05 million. The sun-filled home features three bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, four working fireplaces, and a lovely patio and landscaped garden. [Floorplan]
