So cute

Via Compass

Did this weekend’s warm weather have you dreaming of spring? If so, this may be the townhouse for you—it’s a two-family in Greenpoint with a backyard that’s almost more appealing than the house itself. Located at 661 Humboldt Street, it’s asking $1.995 million. (Yuval Vidal at Compass has the listing.)

What, exactly, makes the outdoor space so swoon-worthy? There’s just so much of it: A spacious patio leads to a landscaped lawn, which has its own swing, greenhouse, and even a tiny woodworking shed—not something you find every day in Brooklyn. (The brokerbabble touts it as a “private park,” which isn’t too far off.)

Inside, the home is split into an owner’s duplex and a rental unit, both of which have two bedrooms and open-concept layouts in the common areas. Though they’ve both been updated recently, some vintage flourishes—exposed brick, tin ceilings—can still be found.

The listing also notes that the house could be converted back to single-family, and that buildable rights are also on offer (though how much is allowed isn’t specified).
