This four-story Carroll Gardens townhouse is impressive from the get-go. Located at 356 President Street, in a historic district, the 1869 home boasts a facade with an arched doorway, the original paneled doors and Italianate cast iron hand railings, and an impressive cornice. Inside, the historic details were recently restored, like eight fireplaces—five with ornate marble mantels—plaster moldings and ceiling medallions, decorative trim, and the original wood floors. On top of that, the backyard was redone by a landscape architect to include built-in seating and a bluestone patio. After all those upgrades, the impressive property just hit the market for a little over $4 million.

The home is now configured as a three-bedroom, owner’s duplex with two rental apartments. The rentals occupy the third and fourth floors. The owner’s apartment holds bedrooms on the garden floor with the living spaces on the parlor floor.

The dedicated dining room sits on the parlor floor, off an eat-in kitchen. The fireplace is framed by an intricately carved marble mantlepiece.

The owner’s renovated kitchen (pictured above) has big windows and is located right off the deck, so it gets lots of light. Pictured below is a kitchen from one of the rental apartments, which also benefits from nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.

One of the home’s bedrooms has more of a lofty look, with exposed ceiling beams and an exposed brick fireplace that’s been painted white.

Another bedroom has more historic details, with its own fireplace as well as tin ceilings.

The deck from the kitchen leads down to the backyard. After the reno, it now includes vertical cedar fencing, new retaining walls, built-in seating and the bluestone patio. A nice, private spot to admire your beautiful Brooklyn townhouse!
