This 3-story single-family townhouse with full basement and blissful garden oasis is a charmer in downtown Brooklyn. Built in 1915 and tastefully updated for modern living, the 18 foot wide, (1,878 square foot interior) gem enjoys a coveted location on a tiny street amidst a quaint stretch of other townhouses. What really makes this beauty stand out is the massive backyard that feels like a country escape, complete with walking path, lush trees and plantings, privacy fencing, a miniature pond, built-in Weber gas grill and lots of room for relaxing and outdoor entertaining.
190 Concord impeccably mingles original details with thoughtful updates, and is bathed in natural light from north and south exposures. Original wood stairs, 2 refinished fireplaces with original cast iron frames and refurbished radiators enhance the character. Contemporary upgrades include new composite floors, new copper piping throughout the house, new heating and sewer lines, added split AC systems on all floors in every room and a new furnace.
The gracious residence boasts 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, affording flexibility to add an additional full bath on the 2nd floor, and have work-from-home office space. The garden level welcomes you with an entry foyer that spills into a bright open floorplan. Relax and entertain in the wonderful living and dining room featuring a gas fireplace and airy 9' ceilings. The large well-appointed kitchen offers generous maple cabinetry and extensive counter space for food prep, a dining bar and stainless steel appliances for the chef. A convenient powder room sits at the end of the hall, as does the door to the sun-flooded south-facing backyard paradise.

The third floor offers 2 additional bedrooms with ample closets including a huge walk-in, a decorative fireplace that's easy to convert, and full bath with a soaking tub and brass fixtures.
