Still-rustic Red Hook is one of our favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn. The area retains much of the look and feel of its historical industrial past, with rows of brick warehouses along the waterfront, a number of cobblestone streets to rattle your teeth as you drive through, and a quaint housing stock of small brick row houses and shopping districts lined with Mom and Pop stores and restaurants.
We currently have two sales listings in this gem of a neighborhood, a condo at 156 Conover Street and a two-family house at 106 Pioneer Street. The Conover Street condo is described as an “expansive, loft style, pre-war condo in the heart of Red Hook” with “high ceilings, original wide-plank wood floors, exposed brick and outdoor space…. this triple-exposure, sun drenched apartment has an airy, flexible and open floor plan allowing you to create a unique space that is all your own.” It comes with a deeded private yard.
If you have an attraction to loft-style living, this Conover Street condo could be of strong interest to you. It is open end to end, with windows on three sides. The bedroom is huge at 12′9ʺ and just more than 23′ long. Its current industrial-looking exposed brick walls are in keeping with the neighborhood’s historical past. Running perpendicular to the living area, the bed can be placed well out of sight while keeping the entire space open to the natural light flooding in from the four windows in the bedroom. The wide-open combined living/kitchen/dining room is more than 35′ long and 15′+ wide. All in all, this is a terrific apartment at an aggressive price point.
Virginia Dobles is the listing agent for this unit. Call her at 718-208-9502 for more information.
The listing for 106 Pioneer Street is just as attractive: This is a “Prime Red Hook two-family townhouse with a private garage. Tucked along the vibrant Red Hook waterfront and community, this multi-family townhouse puts you at the heart of this wonderful neighborhood. It sits on a 16.67′ x 100′ lot, with plenty of room for adding height or depth, for those with time, money, and a vision.
Or, use as is and immediately begin enjoying incredible views and sunsets by the waterfront, amazing shops, eatery’s, artisan coffee roasters, and wine maker, all within a short distance. This is an opportunity to own a Townhouse on what is considered one of the most charming streets in Red Hook. This Multi-Family consists of owners’ duplex with a lower garden rental.
In Red Hook, there is so much to do, to eat, and to drink if you’re so inclined, and the eclectic mix of shops, including of course IKEA, makes this enclave seem less cut off from the rest of Brooklyn than perhaps a destination for the rest of Brooklyn and New York City.
If you don’t yet know Red Hook, you should. If you do, you’ve got two opportunities for you to become a part of this fantastic community. But don’t wait long to check them out. We think they won’t be available for long.
