Carroll Gardens is well-known for its blocks of charming townhouses that boast a New York rarity–a front yard. Located at 66 4th Place, one of those “front yard blocks,” this apartment is part of an eight-unit co-op and has just hit the market for $675,000. The railroad pad will certainly charm potential buyers with details like wide-plank floors, exposed brick, the original pocket shutters and a working wood-burning fireplace.

You walk straight into the living room, which has exposures to the north. One wall is flanked with exposed brick and a massive fireplace. The other holds built-in bookshelves.

The living room then morphs right into the dining area, which is spacious enough to hold a big dining room table.

Then the living room leads you into the open kitchen. Because it’s small, every inch of space is utilized with a small pantry for extra storage and built-in bookcases for holding cookbooks.

Finally, the bedroom is situated in the back of the apartment, with a southern exposure. The design in here smartly utilizes its space, too, with built-in bookshelves, a built-in desk, and a gorgeous floor-to-ceiling, built-in closet space.

If you think this apartment is charming, the building is too: 66 4th Place is fronted by a wrought-iron gate, beautifully landscaped garden and brick path leading you inside. Because it’s self managed, it boasts a low monthly maintenance of $766.
