City meets country oasis in this rarely available renovated three bedroom-three full bath duplex in a townhouse, located in the Williamsburg waterfront heart. 

Perfectly situated in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, it’s mere minutes on the nearby subway to Union Square or SoHo. The duplex has a private entrance on the garden floor that opens into a loft-like space with exposed wood beam ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, wide plank floors, exposed brick, and custom cabinetry throughout. The dining area flows into the open chef’s kitchen with a Viking stove, Bosch dishwasher, Shaw’s English farmhouse sink, and double door fridge. Light pours in thru the custom extra-wide French window, overlooking the lush garden.


Floor features include a built-in TV making for the ultimate entertaining or relaxation oasis as well as a full bath and a high-tech heating and AC system. The full bath with a shower that has a door to the outside creates the ultimate indoor/outdoor experience. There is a split system AC zoned by room throughout the house. Two French doors lead to your secret garden. Ultimate privacy is created by the cascading walls of ivy surrounding the property. Tucked away in the garden’s rear is a free-standing artist studio designed in traditional tea house style with sliding screen walls.

Connected to the pre-fab house is a custom red brick outdoor fireplace and grill. The parlor floor has a sun-filled large master bedroom with a soaking tub at the foot of the bed. An en-suite full windowed master bathroom with an oversize shower is complete with top of the line fixtures. His and her walk-in closets lead to a light and airy 2nd bedroom or office. A large finished full basement with private laundry and ample storage are included with this space. Info: Listing $6,995 per month; contact Nadine Adamson or Kelsey Hall.
