Unlike the more brownstone-centric neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Williamsburg tends to be known more for its supply of condos than for its townhouses, many of which are of the vinyl-sided, fixer-upper variety. That's why this gut-renovated three-bedroom right off the Lorimer L and G stop stood out to us, with its bright interiors and sleek renovations.

The open chef's kitchen, large windows, and backyard patio make it a welcoming space for a buyer who likes to entertain.

There are Brazilian oak floors and brand-new appliances throughout (including a washer and dryer), as well as new electric, plumbing, air-conditioning, heating, and alarm systems.

The master bedroom includes a master bath with steam shower and double vanity—though none of the bathrooms are pictured in this listing—and there's also extra office space and a "sun room" that can be used for exercise, gardening, children's playroom, or workspace:

The asking price is $2.599 million, and though it's a bit of a walk from the ultra-luxe section of Williamsburg that's now home to a Whole Foods and an Apple Store, its location near both the L and G—and the generally saner vibe in this part of the neighborhood—might be a smarter bet than something closer to Bedford Avenue.
