Property Description

ONE ONE ONE Ainslie Street!
Rare would be an understatement to describe this unicorn.
Amongst the very few remaining, fully detached properties in all of Williamsburg, lies this 3-unit, 3-story townhouse gem.
Central to the coveted portion of East Williamsburg, 111 Ainslie stands on one of the most picturesque, tree lined streets in all of Brooklyn.

Lets enter into the 60 foot deep owners duplex through a private entry way at Garden Level. Generous ceiling heights of 8 feet allow for a spacious feel throughout this lower level. An open kitchen layout with an added peninsula creating more counter prep space and seating. Large separate dinning space and living room with full bedroom that fits a king sized bed comfortably. A full bath dressed in vintage Italian Perlato marble tile and a stall shower.

Up the iron, private spiral staircase we go to the Parlor Level of the owners duplex. You'll immediately be greeted by a mixture of prewar and updated details found in moldings, 10 foot ceilings, pocket doors and a limestone fireplace. The main bedroom boosts an amazing 13'x 18' space. A limestone fireplace with details that pay tribute to authentic Brooklyn architecture.
The formal living room showcases it's elegance with a full sized bathroom to follow. The carefully selected Giallo Onyx tile highlights the glamorous vintage cast iron claw foot tub. Picture yourself soaking after a long day, treating yourself in this peaceful spa-like retreat.
As a bonus, two additional bedrooms are found on this level.

We now take the common staircase to the Third and Fourth Floor units. You will find two apartments featuring functional layouts and amazing natural light.

The third floor unit features 1.5 bedrooms making the perfect work from home layout. A large accessible private roof-deck terrace, open kitchen and generous closet space.

The fourth floor unit also features a functional layout with 1.5 bedrooms allowing the ideal home office. Plenty of closet space, an open kitchen and 3 directional sunlight exposure creating exceptional natural light throughout the day.

Out we go to the private backyard/garden. A perfect oasis ideal for entertaining, relaxing, cultivating, and constant sunlight. The front yard also allows the opportunity for amazing seating and landscape design.

For the Investor/Developer an incredible 1,845 square feet of buildable FAR awaits your creativity and vision.

Williamsburg | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Equal parts family-friendly and millennial haven/nightlife destination, Williamsburg offers the best of all worlds. Whether by night or by day, the ‘Burg has endless options for every type of personality and interest--which has only increasingly become the case after the neighborhood was rezoned in 2005. With the floodgate opened for more varied types of businesses, Williamsburg saw one of the highest rates of development in the past decade than any other part of Brooklyn. 

Referred to as “Little Berlin” for its late night and club-oriented nature, Williamsburg works as hard as it plays. Apart from the Clubland concentrated around Wythe Avenue, there is also a slew of offices (like 25 Kent Avenue, a sprawling eight-floor, 500,000-square foot waterfront building) and co-working spaces such as WeWork, The Yard and Green Desk that make it an ideal location for the corporate-, startup- and tech-oriented set. 

With more offices setting their sights on this part of Brooklyn, it only makes sense that more people want to live close to where they work. Apart from your average walk-up apartment, W-burg has famously become home to numerous condos along the waterfront that continue to grow and expand in concert with the businesses and corporate hubs that have entered the environment. 

Even with its many and undeniable changes, however, Williamsburg remains an arts-friendly community, particularly with regard to music and literature. While DIY spaces have come and gone, certain staples have persisted to become institutions that still provide a place for up and coming musicians to perform. On the literary front, long-standing indie bookstores like Spoonbill and Sugartown and Book Thug Nation have paved the way for others to cross the river, namely McNally Jackson Books.
