If you've been on the hunt for a fully formed Brooklyn investment property that doesn't require loads of expensive renovation, this pricey—but well set-up—Fort Greene townhouse might just be the ideal fit. The four-family, five-level brownstone is asking $5 million, but includes three rental units in addition to the owner's duplex, meaning you can also use the home as a significant source of income. Even more conveniently, the listing from Halstead notes that the home is already "fully occupied with steady tenants," meaning a new buyer can just start collecting rent checks immediately.

The bedrooms look spacious and all feature large windows, as do the larger common living areas. Also, take a look at that sunny staircase in the owner's duplex living room:

The owner's duplex also features an eat-in kitchen with huge windows (pictured up top) that looks out onto the private garden.

The circa-1875 building has also been outfitted with key structural updates including foundation work and plumbing, and features solar panels, too, meaning you'll have some green credentials (and lower energy bills). Not too shabby, as long as you don't mind living in the same building as your tenants.
