Get ready to swoon. This Carroll Gardens townhouse at 396 Sackett Street was restored and renovated in 2011 by the Brooklyn firm Baxt Ingui Architects, and it is still looking fine. Gorgeous details, high ceilings, big windows and a fancy kitchen—what’s not to like? The listing even says the home earned the cover of House Beautiful back in 2013. This impressive townhouse could be all yours, as long as you’ve got $4.5 million to spare.
Soak in the loveliness of the parlor floor. There’s the restored original flooring, crown and baseboard molding, and a wood-burning fireplace with a marble mantle. Pocket doors open to the large formal dining room in the back, which has its own marble fireplace.
Here’s a look at the dining room. The green walls, the chandelier, the wood floors…it all makes for a really nice place to sit down and eat. The kitchen is located one floor below, on the garden level, and includes an informal dining area. If the informal dining area seems too far away from the formal dining room upstairs, don’t worry—there’s a newly-installed dumbwaiter connecting the two floors.
Behind the kitchen there’s an informal sitting room with floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to the backyard. Although there aren’t any photos of the garden, the listing says it’s outfitted with a grill and outdoor cooking area.
On the upper floors of this four-story townhouse there are four bedrooms. The master bedrooms takes up the entire floor above the parlor, with a sitting area, an office/library alcove, and a gorgeous master bathroom. The listing assures you that pulling this off was an “exceptional task,” as townhouses were not originally designed to accommodate one seamless space per floor.
There are so many elements to the master bathroom we’ll just include the listing description: “A Margaux footed tub from Waterworks plus separate glass shower, double marble vanity, Carrara marble wainscoting and Walker Zanger mosaic tile above the radiant heated floor.” Sounds fancy! Oh yeah, there’s also a custom-made large dressing room on this floor.
This townhouse is located on a leafy brownstone block of Carroll Gardens, right off the main drag of Smith Street. Beautiful house, beautiful neighborhood, who wants to lend us $4.5 million?
