Pre-Civil War Boerum Hill Townhouse With Curved Steel Staircase, Skylit Spa Bath Asks $2.645 Million

This Boerum Hill Greek Revival townhouse is small and not cheap, but it offers a charming and distinctive space with some high-end finishes. At 112 Nevins Street in the Boerum Hill Historic District, the circa 1852 house was given an architectural makeover a short while back, and it sports a modern rustic interior that’s open and bright.

With three floors bridged by an open, curving steel staircase, it’s got only a single proper bedroom, part of a master suite on the upper floor. In addition to a bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden it includes a nursery/office/dressing room and bathroom with dual sinks and a skylit, green-tiled spa bath that’s separated from the bedroom by a semi-transparent glass wall.

A second bedroom could be sited on the lower level, but it sits partly below grade, and has only a single window (and a seven-foot ceiling height). It’s still a nice space, with exposed ceiling beams, a radiant-heated floor, and a second full bath; the floor plan designates it as a guest room or second living space.

The main living space has wide-plank floors, a wall of windows and glass door facing the fenced garden, and a built-in window bench.

The adjoining kitchen is fetching and pro-grade, with a six-burner BlueStar range, a Viking fridge, a stainless steel farmhouse sink and a small breakfast bar topped with white stone.

In addition to the garden, which is attractive and private, there’s a roof deck, accessible via a pull-down hatch door. There’s a laundry and storage room on the lower level, and a/c throughout.

Listed by Halstead broker Rodney Ripps, the house is asking $2.645 million — which is no small sum for a space this size, especially one that sits across from an elementary school.

On the other hand, when it was a House of the Day three years ago, some thought the price tag of $1.95 million was a serious stretch — and it ended up going for $2.1 million. What do you think it might fetch now?
