Bright, beautiful, and boasting plenty of space, one lucky buyer just scooped up this stunning townhouse at 297 Hoyt Street in Carroll Gardens for $2,175,500, according to city records released today. The brownstone home is currently configured in a two-family setup, but can easily be converted to one, adding an additional 1,300 square feet to the already spacious footprint. And with a private garden, full basement, and lots of original details, it will likely be hard for this home’s new owner not to keep the entire townhouse to themselves.
The house is in move-in condition, but also provides a fairly blank slate to incorporate one’s personal design esthetic. Original details include pocket shutters, pine plank floors, tin ceilings, and plaster moldings.
The beautiful parlor floor showcases the highly-sought-after tin ceilings and is nice and bright thanks to west and east exposures. Outside, the charming garden is already organized for a vegetable or herb garden, which will surely make their way into the kitchen with attached entertaining area.
*Correction 9/24: It was previously reported that Emmy Award-winning journalist Christine Chen purchased the home, but the buyer was in fact someone else.
