Who needs the suburbs when you can park two cars in the garage and invite the whole gang over for a backyard bash with an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, and shower, plus dining and napping space? When the weather cools, there are two levels of indoor space with three bedrooms and a family-friendly layout. Though it feels like two floors of a townhouse, this Carroll Gardens home at 291 Union Street, asking $5,495,000, has condo amenities, too.

New York City never runs out of surprises, and some of the best ones are hidden in plain sight. Dennett Place in Carroll Gardens is just such a hidden surprise. The fun-sized block near the Gowanus Canal is lined with equally diminutive townhouses, each with a miniature “hobbit door.” Though the neighborhood has changed, the block still has the look of a quaint European alleyway and the charm of a tight-knit community–though no one seems to know what the half-pint doors are for. The homes here don’t change hands often, but a pair of multi-family townhouses at 14 and 16 Dennett Place is on the market for the first time in 100 years, asking $3.2 million for both.

Set among a corridor of modern residences that lie between quaint Carroll Gardens and industrial Gowanus, this three-bedroom duplex condo at 345 Carroll Street, now asking $3,995,000, has just about everything you could ask for in its 2,912 square feet of living space. The garden floor condo is even blessed with the urban rarity of a private one-car garage as well as a massive private outdoor terrace. With an entire floor of “bonus” spaces that include a mudroom, laundry room, and two offices, it’s almost like having a townhouse with the ease of condo living.

This two-bedroom Carroll Gardens co-op looks like something you’d find on a Pinterest board. Cupcake and crown moldings, marble fireplaces, pocket doors, and a grand pier mirror from the 1800s have all been maintained in pristine condition. And when mixed with the more modern, yet equally dreamy, decor, the 1,100-square-foot home is completely breathtaking. Located at 86 2nd Place, it’s asking $1,695,000.

Two-and-a-half years ago, the former schoolhouse at 236 President Street in Carroll Gardens was designated an official NYC landmark for its Beaux-Arts architecture, connection to local immigrant history, and the fact that it was Brooklyn’s first kindergarten. The designation came after the then single-family home was slated for demolition to make way for a condo but neighbors and preservationists rallied to save it. Now, the five-bedroom, nearly 4,000-square-foot home (it’s currently configured as a two-family residence) is on the market for $5,995,000.

“From the moment you walk through the door, your mood will be elevated by the natural sunlight streaming in through the grand 16-foot wall of windows,” starts the listing for this three-bedroom duplex in Carroll Gardens. Its abundance of windows is made more striking by their location within several architectural nooks and by the apartment’s double-height configuration. Another perk? it comes with a private roof deck. Located at the ultra-modern Satori condominium, the home is asking $1,398,000.

The landmarked South Congregational Church in Carroll Gardens was built in 1857 in the Romanesque Revival style. Located at 360 Court Street, it was converted to condos in 2008. Many of these residences, like this one-bedroom duplex, retain original church details like stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings. But this 880-square-foot home also has been thoroughly modernized with a cool, mid-century vibe. It’s currently listed for $999,000.
