About 81 Ryerson Street

Enjoy Our Video!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mvo0PaJDh0Cookie cutter condo not for you? Prefer upscale townhouse living, but don't have the stamina to renovate a rickety woodframe? Craving outdoor space all your own?Maybe this renovated duplex in a brick federal is the rare gem you didn't even know you were looking for. Full floor layouts and an open concept common room means this pad was built for entertaining. The wall of slider windows off the dining area leads to your 112sf balcony overlooking a lush green yard. The living room is so bright the owner added interior shutters. A grill on on the balcony 10 feet from your island kitchen lets you pivot back and forth for ingredients to orchestrate masterful cookouts all summer. The balcony has been topped off with a built in bench and planter. Need some space to be alone with your thoughts and a good book? Or want to host an outdoor party for 100 of your closest friends. Retreat to your private rooftop. It's all decked out with planters full of sea grass and a pergola canopy – Greenthumbs, rejoice! From here you can survey Clinton Hill to downtown Brooklyn.Grills for the roof and terrace are included.A 20 foot wide floor plate yields three well proportioned bedrooms and three oversized windows. The master has a walk in closet and floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall built in closets and en-suite bath.The guest bedrooms have ample closets. One has floor-to-ceiling built in book shelves and can double as a library and home office. Modern touches like central air and built in speakers are oh so civilized but not so common in a 115 year old townhouse. Stop at Romans for dinner on your way to Fort Greene Park. Or dine at The Finch, Clinton Hill’s first Michelin Star restaurant. Ryerson Street has a quiet, neighborly vibe and yet is steps from Key Food and the restaurants and shops on Myrtle Avenue. Economic engines like nearby Pratt Institute, Brooklyn Hospital, the burgeoning Navy Yard and the residential amenities they spur will continue to galvanize property values along this corridor for decades to come, making this home purchase a sound investment. Plans for Wegman's and a light rail long the waterfront are under discussion and indicate considerable upside for the next owner. Clinton Hill trivia: The house is in a neighborhood that has the distinction of having the largest collection of pre-Civil War houses in New York City. Walt Whitman lived on this block, just 8 doors up the street.Low monthly common charges of $338 and annual taxes of $4120. Inquire about the mortgage assignment from Wells Fargo that can save you $7000 in closing costs. Use that to furnish your new home or take a European vacation. Don't want to share your hallway with dozens of neighbors? Management companies with all their rules and fees not your style? Privacy and quietude are sometimes the best amenities. Condo ownership, simplified.
