The house is a half block off the main drag of Smith Street, and for the time building, has an indoor porch swing.

This three-family townhouse, located at 361 Warren St. in Boerum Hill, is listed for a dollar shy of $3 million. The house offers 2,425 square feet of floor space, apparently spread across three floors and a cellar, and dates to 1899.

What seems to be the first and second floors of the townhouse make up what would presumably be the owner's three-bedroom apartment. A living room, a dining room, a bathroom, and an open kitchen make up the second floor, and the three bedrooms are on the third. 

All of the apartments have hardwood floors, and there are details including exposed brick and beamed ceilings in select rooms. The bathroom floors feature tiles in various bright colors. 

The third floor has a one-bedroom apartment, with skylights and a Jacuzzi tub.


The sub-basement is also a one bedroom. It's not clear from the photos whether there are windows (which level is the pictured kitchen on?) or how big they are, and there's no floor plan included with the listing, so it's worth researching whether the house is legally a three-family and/or whether this garden apartment is legally habitable by family members or full tenants. 

The house comes with a large backyard, and is close to a wide variety of shopping, eating, and drinking options located along Smith and Court streets.

The closest trains are the F and G, two blocks away at Bergen Street.
