Bushwick is more known for its lofts and roommate shares than for its townhouse offerings, but for $1.099 million, this three-bedroom two-and-a-half-bath single-family is a spacious abode for anyone pining for more than one-level living or a small familly in need of space, and a blank canvas for your decorating dreams. More practically, it's located closer to the JMZ (at Gates and Knickerbocker) than to the L train, meaning that if you move in now, your commute won't be a disaster once the L shuts down for repairs in 2019.
On the main level, there's a sunny living room (with a decorative mantel), as well as a sunroom that looks onto the street. Get some couches and a few plants in there, and we could see losing an entire Saturday afternoon curled up and sunbathing.
The main level also includes the bright chef's kitchen, which includes custom cabinetry, a pantry, and appliances by Viking, Bosch, and Wolf. This leads to the backyard, which includes pavers, and is a prime opportunity for a buyer hoping to start a lush new garden from scratch.
Only one of the bedrooms is pictured, but looks to be reasonably sized (and has large windows), and the tiling in the bathroom is a welcome change of pace from the classic subway pattern.
With an estimated monthly payment of over $4,000/month, per StreetEasy, it would be tough to make your money back on this as a rental—you'd have to charge $1,300/month per room, which is steep for this part of the neighborhood and the currently slumping rental market. But for a buyer who intends to take up residence, consider this a rare, well-located option in the area that won't require any fixer-upper work after the closing.
