Since back when it was first proposed in 2015, this sleek modern duplex with a butterfly roof has been a standout on North Avenue, located just a $16 organic hotdog’s toss from Ponce City Market down the hill.

As of this week, the property is seeing its first resale, with the four-level back half that faces away from the main street listing for $1.12 million with Harry Norman Realtors.

Beyond the fire pit and terraced, fenced front yard, accented with Corten steel, stands a design by the Robert M. Cain Architect firm. It was built by Cablik Enterprises, which also did Sky Hill townhomes down the street, in case it all looks vaguely familiar.

From a small covered patio that meets the driveway to a sunbather-friendly roof deck, the home has a multitude of outdoor options, plus airy interiors with 11-foot ceilings.

The kitchen carries names like Viking and Carrara, while privacy beyond the big windows that’s been compromised by recent home construction, as the listing notes, can be remedied with one of several custom additions: blinds.

Windows are in abundance in the main living and dining space, with a custom KRION island in the kitchen.

Even for the primo location, the most pertinent numbers aren’t exactly gaudy at this price point: three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and 2,700 square feet.

Style-appropriate furnishings help to liven up the place, but it definitely still carries that lightly used, blank-slate vibe.

One plus, according to co-listing agent Michael Kriethe, a Realtor with Harry Norman, is that the shared property carries no HOA fees. Another: the two-car garage comes with EV charging ports.

Records indicate Unit No. 2 last moved for $925,000 three years ago. Its street-facing counterpart, meanwhile, has been offered as a rental for as much as $9,500 per month.
