It is no surprise this impeccable 24-foot-wide multifamily brownstone is located in the aptly-named enclave of Carroll Gardens, since it boasts two lovely and spacious gardens of its own. Located on tree-lined 1st Place, just a stone’s throw from Manhattan, its $7 million price tag offers a taste of suburbia with all the advantages of city living.
Throughout the residence’s 5,000-plus-square-feet you will find grand finishes and distinctive design elements. The parlor level features an exquisite fireplace with a white marble mantel; fluted columns with carved details formally divide the rooms while still providing an open layout; and intricate plaster moldings and medallions, decorative fretwork, stained glass panels in the oversized windows, and inlaid parquet floors all add to the home’s rich texture.
While the spacious dining room is perfect for formal dinner parties, a sun-filled eat-in kitchen provides a charming space for more casual fare, and large sliding glass doors lead to a deck overlooking the rear garden.
The garden level and upper two floors each provide separate apartments, offering excellent income potential as well as the flexibility to convert this currently four-family home into one that perfectly suits your lifestyle and layout preferences.
Properties like this don’t come on the market very often, and with a recent $400,000 price reduction, we don’t think it will be there for much longer.
