Location: Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn
Completed in 1910, this freestanding townhouse was built on a double lot on Vanderbilt Street, a quiet, tree-lined block. The house is a ten-minute walk from both Prospect Park (via the Seeley Street Bridge) and Green-Wood Cemetery (a pedestrian-friendly green space that has become particularly popular during these socially distant times). The closest trains are the F and G at Fort Hamilton Parkway station, which is near a cluster of restaurants including Batata Pita Bar and Stang Thai.

This renovated two-family home, now used as a single residence, has a ton of space inside and outside. In the huge hedged backyard, there is an in-ground saltwater pool surrounded by a bluestone patio and separate pool house, plus a garage and enough space for a playground, multiple outdoor seating areas, and a built-in barbecue station. Inside, a dining room with two bay windows is located near the entrance, while a large kitchen with an island opens up to the airy rear living room and outdoor spaces. All four bedrooms and two of the bathrooms are on the second floor.
