90 Pioneer Street
In the heart of vibrant Red Hook, book-ended by Sylvan Coffey Park on one end and the restaurants of Van Brunt Street on the other, is 90 Pioneer Street; a 2 family row house built in 1899 with parking. This well proportioned home consists of a spacious owner’s duplex and bright, recently renovated garden floor rental. The double parlor on the first floor has not one but two working fireplaces to curl up and read a book or bring everyone together around the crackling fire. The wood-burning fireplace is framed with a decorative marble mantel whereas the gas fireplace has a carved wooden mantle. Two large south-facing windows illuminate the parlor that flows past the original staircase to the kitchen. The area under the staircase has been thoughtfully converted into a hidden storage space adjacent to a beautifully renovated full bathroom. The kitchen contains a large dining area and is bathed in sunlight with two windows and french doors leading to a lovely cedar deck with stairs to the garden. The bilevel garden is currently used for fire pit get-togethers but the upper half could be used for parking as an access lane runs behind the property for egress. The top floor opens up into four separate rooms and another full bathroom. Located in the rear, the serene master bedroom spans the width of the house with double french doors onto a Juliet balcony that invites the outdoors inside. With a large built-in closet and plenty of space this bedroom offers a lovely quiet spot to relax. The bathroom is renovated with crisp black and white tiles, pedestal sink and wainscoting with an adjacent washer and dryer. In the center of the floor is another generously proportioned bedroom with two opening skylights and a large closet. Off the landing, in the front, is another large bedroom neighboring a sunlit home office. The duplex has gleaming wood floors throughout, exposed brick and tin ceilings with plenty of room to spare. A private entrance under the stoop opens to a carefully renovated garden apartment featuring a lovely open kitchen with a breakfast bar and dining area. The living room is pleasingly light and airy due to its southern exposure and big-sky surroundings. The bathroom is welcoming with white ceramic tiles and a modern vanity. A queen-size bed easily fits in the bedroom leaving space for a seating area and leads to a private patio. Tree-lined Pioneer Street, with it's corner bookstore, is in the heart of the Red Hook community where you will find many restaurants, bars, cafes and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Commute each day on the New York Water Taxi, hop on a nearby Citi Bike at Wolcott Street or drive since you have your own private parking. Come and enjoy the only front facing view of the Statue of Liberty in NYC from Valentino Pier.
