Renovated historic homes are du rigueur in Brooklyn, but this three-bedroom townhouse comes with extra credentials: it was named a Remodelista Considered Design Award winner for its extensive remodeling. Originally built at the turn of the century, the home underwent an extensive redesign in 2013. And thanks to its location on a cobblestone street in the tiny Columbia Street Waterfront District, nestled between Red Hook and Cobble Hill, it hasn't lost touch with its history. Listed for $3 million by Compass, the triplex is at the high end for the neighborhood, which might be explained by its multiple outdoor spaces--and its prize-winning design. 

On the first floor, the open living and dining room feature double-height ceilings, creating a sun-drenched space and highlighting the steel beams that frame the room. The area looks ideal for entertaining, especially given the inclusion of built-in wine and liquor storage. 

The kitchen faces the property's front garden, and is similarly outfitted for hosting parties: the generous counter and storage space, and the top of the line appliances, including a six-burner stove, are very chef-friendly. Next to the kitchen, you'll find a laundry room with a washer and dryer. 

Up the stairs, you'll find an office nook that overlooks the living area, as well as two bedrooms that come with ample closet space and share a bathroom. 

The master bedroom comes with an oversized closet, and opens onto a spacious and elaborately designed and landscaped terrace—a great place to bring the party in the warmer months. The bedroom's elegant en suite bathroom has natural stone tile, a large walk-in shower, and double sinks.

The home is outfitted with central heat and air, and common areas are wired for sound. In addition to the terrace, front, and side yards, you have easy access to Brooklyn Bridge Park and Van Voorhees Park.
