Townhouse pick of the week

This Park Slope townhouse may not be a brownstone, but it's just right for an investor

More and more townhouses seem to be renovated with investment in mind these days, and this charming property on Park Slope's Webster Place is a prime example. While it's not one of the neighborhood's fabled brownstones, its $2.6 million price point puts it on the more affordable end of the area's townhouse spectrum, even with its recent renovations.

The first floor is configured as one-bedroom apartment, which was most recently rented out for $2,200/month, according to StreetEasy records. As for the rest of the home, the owner's unit is fairly airy and open, with a living room, dining room, and kitchen that eschew a compartmentalized layout.

The kitchen and dining area leads to a deck and a landscaped backyard, which looks particularly appealing for entertaining as the weather warms up.

There are new hardwood floors throughout, and on the upper levels, you'll find three bedrooms, a bathroom, and extra linen closets for storage.

The home includes a finished basement, too, with a laundry room and "rumpus room" that could be turned into a children's playroom or entertaining space. The listing also notes that the ground floor apartment could be easily turned into a master suite if you're inclined to remake this home into a single-family. But with such spacious living quarters up top, why not retain the option to make a little money off your home while you're at it?
