This quirky little red brick townhouse in Red Hook was built in the mid 19th century. Located at 120 Pioneer Street, it has low stairs, flat stone lintels, a barely recessed doorway, with simple square patterns on the bracketed cornice and inside the doorway.
Inside, the home has charming characteristics like an old heating stove inside a mantel shelf/firebox in the living room. The living room has a red concrete floor, a nice and also practical feature since the neighborhood is prone to flooding.
Behind the living room is a snug kitchen situated in a rear extension with two mullioned windows above the sink, new appliances and cabinets and a stone countertop with a white tile backsplash bordered in blue and green. A door through the kitchen leads to a beautifully landscaped garden with a pathway to a backyard studio. Behind the studio is a garage accessible through an alleyway entrance.
The living space is laid out as a garden-level duplex with two bedrooms on the parlor level, both with walk-in closets, which share a bathroom that is not pictured. The rental unit above is shown with a bed in the living room, possibly because of the less-than-six-foot room labeled a bedroom in the floor plan, but doesn’t have to be set up that way. The total square footage of all three floors, excluding the studio and garage, is in the area of 1,200 square feet.
The asking price is $1.495 million, with low taxes of $181 per month, in a listing by Lissa Wolfe and Sue Wolfe for Corcoran. They are showing the place on Sunday, July 21st from 11 am to 12:30 pm. Is the price right for this increasingly popular out-of-the-way district?
