Property Description

179 Kingsland was originally constructed in 1910. This newly renovated home is the perfect combination of high-end finishes, modern technology, and impeccable details, an honorable salute to its past. This townhouse is a two-family rowhouse that features 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and 1 powder room. From wide plank white oak floors to original doors attention to detail can be found throughout this well-appointed home. As you enter the owner’s three-bedroom duplex, you are greeted by a welcoming foyer with an original, half-glass door. Stepping into this grand parlor, you realize the breadth of space as the 10-foot ceilings let the light radiate throughout the open floor plan. To the left, a formal living room area with an original woodburning fireplace and beautiful molding offers a great space for entertaining. In the center, sample space for a large dining table, perfect for holiday meals. In the back, the large kitchen features a four-seat island, custom white cabinetry, and quartz countertops. With a farmhouse sink and a full complement of appliances including a Fisher Paykel paneled refrigerator, Wolf five-burner stove, and microwave drawer, this kitchen is a chef’s dream. Through double glass doors, you step outside to the parlor's back deck and a serene backyard. Upstairs you find three bedrooms and two full baths. The elegant primary bedroom faces the quiet back gardens and features three windows and two large closets. The primary bath is adorned with marble tiled floors and walls, a tasteful double vanity, a glass-enclosed rain shower, and a freestanding bathtub. As you head down the hall, you pass the second bathroom adjacent to the two comfortable bedrooms. Lastly, there is a staircase that leads you upstairs which provides roof access and offers open Eastern views. From the built-in sound system to the restored newel, this home offers a perfect blend of new technology and original charm. The separate garden floor two-bedroom unit can serve as an income-producing property or in-law apartment and offers access to the lush backyard garden. Greenpoint is a bustling neighborhood with many local establishments such as Variety Coffee Roaster, Dar524, Little Dekobi, and The Esters to name a few. Both McGolrick and McCarren Parks are nearby with the former only two blocks away. The closest subway is the Nassau G train station and Met Food Markets of Greenpoint is around the corner.

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.
