The seller of this landmarked Vinegar Hill townhouse at 69 Gold Street won’t be feeling sour in the slightest. The property sold for $3.35 million, breaking the neighborhood record for priciest home sale yet.

The Greek Revival-style home features four bedrooms and three bathrooms, and was built in 1841 and recently underwent renovations. While a liquor store used to occupy the ground-floor space, the renovations removed the retail component, restored the facade, and added windows and a rooftop terrace, according to DNAinfo. The building also housed a speakeasy during the Prohibition era.

A townhouse at 79 Bridge Street that sold for $2.13 million was the previous record-holder.

Jared Seligman of Douglas Elliman represented the seller. “I believe that potential buyers will have more confidence in location now that there has been such a high sale,” he said.

Vinegar Hill is bordered by Dumbo, the Con Edison Hudson Avenue Substation, the Brooklyn Navy Yard and the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. [DNAinfo] — Tess Hofmann
