PRICE IMPROVEMENT!! Motivated Seller A historic Brooklyn gem, this elegant 1901-built, 20’-wide Carroll Gardens townhouse is in excellent turnkey, updated condition, offering a wonderful garden duplex on the lower level and 2 stunning 2 bedroom apartments on the top floors. This is a perfect opportunity for the owner-occupier seeking an exceptional standard of living as well as great income from the top units, or the investor wanting to benefit from high monthly rent for all 3 apartments. Boasting an expansive 4,610+/- square feet, the meticulously-done 3-family brick townhouse is all custom and one of a kind, mingling classic features like exposed brick, architectural ceilings, open archways and hardwood floors with modern luxury finishes. The grand duplex provides generous living space on 2 levels, with a versatile layout featuring 2 bedrooms plus an office that can easily serve as a 3rd bedroom if desired. Comfortable yet sophisticated living quarters are complemented by blissful private outdoor space, comprised of a serene covered patio and enchanting garden beyond, both wrapped in beautiful stone. Designed for hosting a crowd, the duplex’s gracious main/garden level presents a large living room with wood-burning fireplace, open dining area graced by exposed brick walls, convenient powder room, and huge eat-in custom kitchen with abundant wood cabinetry, granite countertops, a big center island with seating, and stainless steel appliances. Enjoy indoor-outdoor entertaining at its best in your own private sanctuary! The chef’s kitchen leads out to the lovely covered porch with room for seating and al fresco dining, complete with heating for chilly nights. Beyond sits the magical slate patio that is fully fenced, with stacked stone retaining walls, garden beds, and a stone hearth wood-burning fireplace. Occupying the parlor floor/second level are 2 bedrooms, including the master bedroom with custom his and her walk-in closets, and a wood-burning fireplace enriching the ambience. In between is situated a roomy home office or 3rd bedroom, and a full bathroom. The duplex also has access to the cellar with a multipurpose rec room, washer-dryer and storage. The third and fourth floor apartments are identically and impeccably designed, both with fabulous layouts comprised of a living room, custom updated eat-in kitchens with an island and dishwasher, king and queen-size bedrooms (with window seats in the masters), a full bath, laundry, and custom closets. These apartments each have private outdoor balconies, but the top unit has something extra special – a private roof deck with skyline views of Manhattan! Located in Carroll Gardens on Clinton, just a block from Court Street and wide assortment of specialty shops and restaurants, coffee houses, fitness options and more. There’s a park right across the street, plus you’re in close proximity to Carroll Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the F/G subway line.
