The apartment has some personality.


This four-story, turn-of-the-century townhouse at 212 Kane St. in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn strikes a nice balance between modern upgrades and retaining original charm. Listed for $3,295,000, the single-family three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom was gut renovated in 1998, and has hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and full basement. 

The ground floor living areas appear spacious and well-lit. The kitchen is modern without looking cookie-cutter, and features stainless steel appliances, a dining area, and doors leading out to a south-facing garden. 

There is also a den and a formal dining room.

The two full bathrooms have colorful tile designs, and the bedroom shown looks large and bright. 

The location is highly convenient. There are grocery stores and chic boutiques, and a buzzed-about bar and restaurant scene are all a few blocks away, and the Bergen Street F and G station is five blocks away.
