The townhouse has been updated inside and out. 


If you're in the market for a renovated townhouse, have a thing for Windsor Terrace, and two or so million to spend, 702 Greenwood Ave. in Brooklyn might be for you. Listed for $2,395,000, the three-bedroom, two-plus bath single-family house is located on a corner lot, offering three exposures. 

It's been on and off the market since April, originally listed at $2,795,000, by a different agency, so there's likely room to negotiate on that price

The current owners have seemingly replaced every system in the house over 10 years; it has new plumbing and electrical, as well as a new water main and sewer line, ceiling, floor joists, and insulation. A two-car garage makes parking easy, and gas, plumbing, and electric lines are in place to convert an attic space into a retreat for adults or kids, depending on your wants/needs. 

The house has an open kitchen and living room layout, with French doors leading to a landscaped yard and bluestone patio. Set up for hosting gatherings, the whole house and backyard is wired with an Elan music system. 

There are hardwood floors throughout. 

Additional comforts include three gas fireplaces, radiant heat, central air, and a 92-inch dropdown projection screen. 

The master bath (not shown) is outfitted with a large tub with jets and a television, according to the listing.

The house is near numerous bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, and a short walk to the F and G trains at Fort Hamilton Parkway.
