After a colorful renovation, a cute townhouse in South Park Slope (or Greenwood Heights, depending on who you ask) is asking $1.585 million.

The house itself dates back to the turn of the 20th century, but has gotten plenty of modern upgrades. But that doesn’t mean it’s a sterile or boring space: Much of the woodwork found throughout the home—including custom cabinets and shelving in the living room and kitchen—were built by the home’s owner. The owner also hand-crafted some items in the master bedroom, such as a radiator cover that incorporates willow branches from the backyard.

And about that backyard: Though it looks untamed in the listings photos, it’s enormous, with enough room for different planters and a sitting area.

There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a powder room in the house. The entire first floor is open and has exposed brick and a decorative fireplace. The second floor is home to the kitchen (which has hand-poured concrete countertops) and another small deck. And on the top floor, there’s the master bedroom, another bedroom, and a laundry room.

This charming house is located at 257 23rd Street in Brooklyn, close to Green-Wood Cemetery. It’s listed with Corcoran’s Katie Feola for $1.585 million.
