Property Description

Enjoy the charm and comfort afforded by this excellent-condition Greenpoint three-bedrooms/two-bathrooms single-family house offering 3 gracious floors of light-filled living quarters, and exceptional outdoor space! Brimming with prewar character, 728A Humboldt sits on a generous 100’-long lot in prime East Greenpoint, mere blocks from McGolrick Park. The inviting residence welcomes you with a gated forecourt that accesses the entrances to both the garden and parlor levels. Best of all is the amazing, expansive backyard where you can host barbecues and cocktail parties, dine alfresco, let the kids and pets play, or lounge with a good book. Up the front stoop, a vestibule and hallway lead to the parlor level that’s ideal for entertaining. The elegant ambience is enhanced by airy 9’9” ceilings, tasteful moldings, and rich parquet hardwood floors. The well-proportioned living room is brightened by a triple bay window, and connects to a huge dining room where you can share sit-down meals. Adjoining is a sunny windowed kitchen with stainless steel appliances that overlooks the rear yard, so you can keep an eye on the kids while you cook. A sky-lit staircase ascends to the upper level, bringing in lovely natural light to the parlor and third floors. The top story is reserved for the 3 bedrooms, which share a full hall bath. The king-size primary bedroom is very spacious, with great closet space and oversized windows. Two additional bedrooms sit at the rear and have tree-top views. The day-lit garden level/English basement with interior and exterior entrances is very large and versatile. The openness of it makes it perfect for many purposes like a media/recreation room, art studio, home office, or guest bedroom area. Here you’ll also find a full bath with shower, washer-dryer, and lots of space for storage. Additional 1,400 square feet of air rights are available if you wish to expand the possibilities. This move-in condition house stands apart not only with its beautiful interiors, but its prime location just 2 blocks south of Msgr. McGolrick Park featuring green space, a weekend farmers market, playground, and dog-friendly areas. Also nearby are many local bars, restaurants, and conveniences. Don’t miss out on this beauty and opportunity – contact us today for a private showing.

Greenpoint | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Go north, not west. Greenpoint’s placement at the furthermost tip of Brooklyn makes it peak “North Brooklyn” territory. Bordered by the East River, its geographical location has long made Greenpoint integral to maritime activity, present day ferry service to Manhattan included. With Williamsburg to the south and Long Island City to the north, Greenpoint’s “hip factor” often experiences crossover traffic from these areas. 

Particularly bustling on the weekend, the edge of McCarren Park at Bedford Avenue and Lorimer Street filters out into prime Greenpoint, where brunch has become a hallowed tradition for newer and longtime residents alike. Bars and restaurants such as Spritzenhaus and Five Leaves also provide close proximity to a post-dining jaunt in the park. 

As the neighborhood continues to grow and develop, the old world feel of a tradition of Polish immigrants has commingled with the arrival of enterprising millennials that have become a part of the go-getting spirit of the neighborhood. Filled with small coffee shops, vintage boutiques and award-winning restaurants (as well as tailored bars like TØRST offering up specialty beers on tap), Greenpoint truly is the jewel of North Brooklyn.
