Yearn to live the good life by the docks in Red Hook and enjoy the neighborhood's funky collection of shops, bars, and restaurants? Consider this two-family 1899 townhouse at 92 Pioneer St., listed for $1,650,000.

The listing photos show the owner's two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath duplex. It has a sizable living room and an eat-in kitchen, the later of which measures 14 by 17 feet. There's also a washer-dryer on the first floor.

The apartment's two bedrooms are upstairs, and a skylight lets light in. The hardwood floors look to be in good shape. 

The garden rental, a one bedroom, isn't shown, so we're guessing it's occupied or needs some work.

The listing says there's a possibility for parking for two cars, which is especially helpful in the transit-starved neighborhood. (While Red Hook is served by bus lines; the closest subway stop is the F and G at Smith-Ninth Street, three quarters of a mile away.) 

The sunken patio is snow-covered in the pictures, but could be a nice place to grill and enjoy a glass of wine in warmer months.
