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.

This two-bedroom apartment, listed for $1,450,000, features many of these elements, including original red oak beams, wood hewn ceilings, and exposed brick. On top of all that charm, it has a sunny outdoor patio.

181 President Street, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn townhouse

Back in 2014, an oversized, four-story townhouse replaced an old garage at 181 President Street in Carroll Gardens, and it became known as one of the most “lavish” homes in Brooklyn thanks to its 5,356-square-foot layout, elevator, landscaped roof deck, wine cellar, home gym, two-car garage with a Tesla charging station, and more. So it was no surprise when it set a neighborhood record upon selling for $9.15 million in 2018. The five-bedroom home is now back on the market, asking a pretty comparable $9,995,000.
