If you can’t afford a mansion in Brooklyn, that doesn’t mean you can’t own an apartment inside of one. This one-bedroom co-op is nestled within a Romanesque Revival mansion located at 784 Carroll Street in Park Slope. It was designed by the architect Charles Werner in 1889, who has other work in Park Slope, Fort Greene, Prospect Park South and Prospect Heights. The listing, of course, speaks highly of the unique building: “784 Carroll Street’s captivating facade combines lush greenery with picturesque nineteenth century architecture.” The asking price of this unit is $665,000, significantly lower than an actual mansion, not to mention much of the real estate now on the market in Park Slope.

Although there’s no square footage listed, there’s a decent amount of space available for this one bedroom, as well as north- and east-facing windows in the living room to bring in a good amount of light. Some historic details include moldings and the original oak floors, but otherwise it looks pretty updated. The kitchen, for example, was built out with a breakfast bar. There’s a dining alcove off the kitchen that the listing says could also double as an office space.

The renovated bathroom comes with heated floors… not a bad perk at all.

Inside the bedroom, you’ve got four closets (not bad!) and enough space to hold a king-sized bed with room to spare. This is a ground-floor unit, and the windows face north onto the street.

One of the great things about being on the ground floor is easy access to the building’s shared garden. As the listing puts it: “Push open the wrought iron gates, and descend into a secluded, shared English garden that enchants us with its high brick walls, fragrant flowers and vegetation.” It is a charming space indeed, and makes this building even more special. Of course, if you’re looking for more sprawling greenery, Prospect Park is only two blocks away. It’s a win-win!
