Starting with a planted front garden of the sort that earned the classic Brooklyn neighborhood of Carroll Gardens its name, this four-bedroom row house at 439 Sackett Street has historic Brooklyn-casual nailed, with charm and warmth throughout–and a bright dose of country caravan whimsy in the kitchen. Built in 1880, this 20-foot-wide home, asking $2.795 million, boasts wide-plank knotty pine floors along with original details like dramatic archways, ceiling medallions, crown molding and ornate stone fireplace surrounds.

Up the stoop, the front parlor is sunlit by oversized windows. In the rear of this floor is a bedroom and ensuite bath; both spaces are warmed by large fireplaces.

Below on the garden level a great room offers laid-back relaxation space for residents, guests or both. The home’s eat-in kitchen is definitely unique, with not a minimal white cabinet in sight. Instead, a sunny riot of colors and shapes–anchored by all-business steel appliances–look like they’d add more sunshine to mornings than an entire pot of coffee.

According to the listing, the townhouse was once the home of a religious order–possibly the Church of the Goofy Real Estate Agents.

An enchanted back patio leads to an equally fabulous 20-by-56-foot landscaped backyard oasis.

On the third floor are three bedrooms and a full bath. Back downstairs a finished cellar includes a den, office, rec room space, a powder room and a large laundry area.
