Create your very own "country cottage" in the city with PARKING for at least three cars and a huge front yard perfect for entertaining and gardening! This charming 3-story frame house sits on one of Red Hook's most picturesque blocks and awaits your inner designer to come and create the bungalow of your dreams. Uniquely set far back from the street at the end of the lot, you can be assured that you will only enjoy the utmost privacy and quiet, with the opportunity to park your car collection and garden and entertain to your heart's content. Just a few blocks from Valentino Pier Park, Pioneer Works, the East River, the ferry stop, Ikea, Baked, and world class restaurants like Red Hook Tavern, you can be assured of a laid-back surfer lifestyle and creative neighbors with no cultural or foodie compromises, and the fresh salty air that makes you feel like you live in a seaside village in the midst of a big city. Head through a gate on a picket fence into a secret compound that you cannot believe even exists in Brooklyn. A discrete curb cut opens up into a massive yard where parking three cars is a dream come true. Behind the parking area is a pergola and deck that could easily be transformed into lush garden. At about 1600 SF, this home affords you the opportunity to enjoy three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and your choice of two additional windowed home offices and/or dressing rooms. Enter through a mud/laundry room where you can stash your stuff and indulge in a brand-new vented LG full size washer and dryer. The main level is an open kitchen and living space that was recently renovated with new LG appliances, granite countertops, a powder room and new floors. A more rustic aesthetic awaits on the upper two floors, and my best guess is that the next owner will incorporate the aged patina of the upper floors into the design of the main level. With a nod to the tin ceilings, wide plank pine floors and exposed beams that still exist upstairs, you can even utilize the new stainless appliances and wrap them in design elements that feel like they have been there forever. The second floor makes the perfect sunny south-facing Primary suite. Create a luxurious bathroom and still have room for ample closets while enjoying a view into the treetops and over your very own yard. The top floor offers two additional light-flooded bedrooms, and two windowed offices, one perfectly situated about the primary bath, making the addition of another full bath a breeze. Please bring your contractor and your ingenuity. The low-rise zoning in Red Hook makes it hard to add additional square footage to this property, but honestly, a nuanced polish of this property as-is makes it a wonderful long-term home for the imaginative and resourceful buyer for whom Red Hook has become so renowned.
