Townhouses are a relatively scarce commodity in Williamsburg's condo-heavy housing stock, especially if you're looking for something with higher-end finishes, rather than an old vinyl-sided number in need of numerous upgrades. Which is why we were struck by this new-build, two-unit townhouse on South 3rd Street, just a few blocks away from the JMZ train, an ideal location for a stalwart Williamsburg-dweller to stick out the L train shutdown.
The lower level is set up as a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment that will certainly turn a profit as a rental once the L is out of commission (and likely sooner), but the real star of the show is the three-bedroom owner's triplex, with oversized "warehouse-style" windows, part of the home's overall "historical industrial-inspired design" that's a nod to the neighborhood's history as a manufacturing hub. This unit is set up perfectly for hosting, with a sunny, open living room, which leads into a spacious, modern kitchen with breakfast bar seating, as well as room for a full dining table:
Wall-to-wall glass doors into the kitchen open up onto a balcony, which in turn leads down into the backyard. It's nicely finished if a little bare, meaning there's plenty of room for an owner with a green thumb and a creative eye to turn this space into a lush, green oasis:
On the upper levels, you'll find three bedrooms on the third floor, and an entire master suite on the fourth floor, including a bathroom with a soaking tub and double vanity, a walk-in closet, and room for a study:
