Don’t miss your chance to live in the heart of Greenpoint on tree-lined Jewel Street.
Options abound for this two family townhouse: Live here and collect a rent roll; add value by duplexing the basement; or modify it into a one family dream house. Or, over time, do all three.
This 18x40’ two family townhouse is situated on an 18x100’ lot. Built circa 1901, it features sturdy bones like those of the longshoremen who once lived on this block and worked on the Greenpoint waterfront.
This home has been owner occupied since 1975 and lovingly maintained for 3 generations, and will serve you well as a smart investment, no matter whether your time horizon is 40 months or 40 years.
The parlor floor is an open concept living room/dining room/island kitchen, with direct access to the backyard through an enclosed porch deck. If you are fond of house guests, this home is great for entertaining. The deck is powered with outlets for the out door fridge. Enclosed with screens and a roof for privacy and shade, the porch serves double duty as a play and exercise area. Close on the house before summer ends and enjoy the pool and backyard barbecues.
The upper unit boasts a second bedroom, and a mezzanine hall with a skylight and closet.
Your home is conveniently located in central Greenpoint. Cafe Grumpy is steps from your stoop -- grab a latte to go on your way to McGolrick Park farmer’s market. Five Leaves restaurant is less than five minutes on foot. So is Slick Willie, Scalino, Le Fond, and El Born. Five minutes further are The Bounty, Dar55, and McCarren Park. Yogis rejoice at Lucent Yoga Studio one block away. Grab a late night work out at the Greenpoint YMCA -- they never close!
Walkable to more than 95 acres of local parks, playgrounds, green space, and waterfront, it’s no wonder Greenpoint is a most sought after destination for Brooklyn home buyers.
