Renovated Top Floor of a Carroll Gardens Townhouse Asking Just Over $1 Million

Nine years and a renovation will really make a difference for real estate in Brooklyn — just take this two-bedroom co-op at 188 Degraw Street in Carroll Gardens. It sold in 2007 for $595,000 according to public records. The current owners then spiffed up the top-floor apartment and have just listed it for $1.095 million.

Because of the top-floor location, the open living and dining room gets nice views of townhouses across the street. By keeping this space open, all the light that comes from the front of the apartment flows throughout. There’s enough room in here for a sizable dining table, a few couches, even a built-in office nook.

Right off the living room/home office area is a small private terrace. Not a bad place to enjoy the architecture of Carroll Gardens over a coffee.

The kitchen was definitely part of this latest upgrade. A breakfast bar and the fireplace provide a nice, but still open, separation between this space and the living room. It seems like the theme of the reno was lots of white cabinetry to maximize storage and keep everything bright. (Speaking of storage, this unit also comes with its own laundry closet and attic space, which was transformed into 600 square feet of extra storage space that’s accessible by a drop-down staircase.)

Both bedrooms face south and get lots of sun. They’re outfitted with more storage space, and the master bedroom comes with an ensuite bath. So is it all worth $1 million? A buyer even has the opportunity to significantly renovate again, as the listing says there’s buildable square footage for the co-op that allows for potential expansion upward. Who knows — the apartment could be back on the market in a few years for $2 million.
