c. 1899 Modernized Townhouse

79 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Greenpoint
Brooklyn, New York

The Old School House

Historic Greenpoint


This is a very rare opportunity to own a property in a Specially Zoned Mixed Use District! A property like this comes along only once in a blue moon. This stately home is definitely the gift that keeps on giving. This is a tremendous opportunity for someone to create not only the home of their dreams but quite possibly make their lifestyle dreams come true here within this home!

If you have a dream of creating a business where you live then this property is for you! Here we have 3,240 square feet of living space not including an above grade semi-finished basement. This property also has an additional 2,160 square feet that can be built upon this lot totaling 5,400 square feet of live/work space! Again, not including an above grade basement that's an additional 846 square feet maxing out the potential growth of this very grand home to a huge 6,246 square feet of Greenpoint Townhouse Beauty! Also, the front yard and backyard both have very spacious gated garden areas!

This lot has an edge over others in the community, as well. The footprint is 27 x 100 and the house itself is 25 x 60, with a separate delivery entrance away from the resident hall. The building itself was built in 1899 and still has some very nice original details, along with some nice modern upgrades, mostly in the kitchen and bath areas. The rooms are spacious and the outdoor deck can be something magical for events, crafting, art galleries or maybe even a day care center. The sky's the limit here! The only thing not allowed is heavy construction but a brewery would be totally acceptable along with a great addition to this very historic community! This is one of the best investment opportunities you can make! There's so much room for financial growth here.

Owner motivated!

More About This House

The property is borderline Greenpoint/Williamsburg. This three-family beauty sits between the very notable West Street and the legendary Franklin Street. It's very close to the swank destination spots of Kent Avenue and a corner turn to the trendy, upscale West Street, located on the East River, which is known for it's tremendous sights of the entire NYC skyline and New York Harbor. Ferry terminals (North 7th Street and India Street) close by, as well and only minutes to Midtown.

The Special Mixed Use District (MX) was established in 1997 to encourage investment in and enhance the vitality of existing neighborhoods with mixed residential and industrial uses in close proximity and create expanded opportunities for new mixed use communities. New residential and non-residential uses (commercial, community facility and light industrial) can be developed as-of-right and be located side-by-side or within the same building. Pairing an M1 district with an R3 through R10 district (e.g. M1-2/R6) ensures a balanced variety of uses. Residential uses are generally subject to the bulk controls of the governing residence district; commercial, industrial and community facility uses are subject to the M1 district bulk controls, except that community facilities are subject to residential FAR (Floor Area Ratio) limits.

Most light industrial uses are permitted in each MX district as-of-right, others are subject to restrictions and Use Group 18 (Heavy Construction) uses are excluded altogether, except for small breweries, as noted above.

This property is zoned M1-2/R6B / Special Mixed Use District MX-8 but always check for updates with a State Licensed Architect. Also close to this Greenpoint beauty is the Brooklyn Expo, American Playground, East River State Park, McCarren Park and Pool, Dupont Street Park and the very green and beautiful, McGoldrick Park on Greenpoint's Eastside.

Transportation includes MTA buses B32/48/43 Trains L and the G transfer to the multiple city lines and India Street Ferry Terminal/North 7th Ferry Terminal/Williamsburg Bridge/Pulaski Bridge and Midtown Tunnel all close by! Let's not forget Citi bikes are everywhere!
