Property Description

This sophisticated and spacious triplex 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom apartment (plus two level bbq roof terrace and four additional private terraces) located in a newly gut-renovated Carroll Gardens townhome has been meticulously appointed with top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures. There is a spacious 2 bedroom + home office, 2 bathroom unit on the garden levels, making it a great investment opportunity as well. This home was also featured in House Beautiful magazine in December 2019: "A Brand-New Brooklyn Townhouse Disguised to Feel Centuries Old".When you enter through the front door at 155 Nelson, the entryway greets you with a classic black and white tile foyer area with Ralph Lauren lighting and oversized walk-in closet for all of your storage needs (coats, shoes, sporting equipment, two bike racks etc).As you ascend the stairs onto the main floor, you're immediately greeted with a comforting tableau of a fireplace and bookshelves, which makes for a quaint and cozy sitting room or gallery. The main living room is also located on this floor, which hosts large windows allowing for ample light to fill the space, especially in the mornings. The corner of the room is set up for a small banquette and table overlooking the street.A large, open dining room and beautiful chef's dream kitchen have been tastefully appointed with top-of-the-line Wolfe and SubZero appliances, white marble countertops, and newly installed fixtures that complement the rest of the townhome perfectly. Additionally on this level, off the kitchen, there are oversized windows and double French doors opening out onto the private terrace, perfect for entertaining during the spring or summer. Japanese maple tree and honeysuckle climb around the railings and English ivy covers the walls, creating an aesthetically pleasing space.The third floor hosts a wing layout consisting of the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet to the right, and generously sized second bedroom with ample closet space and additional bathroom to the left. The master bathroom features white marble countertops, dual sinks, glass enclosed shower and soaking tub. The master bedroom has a balcony with a white pine tree, wisteria and a dogwood tree overlooking the neighboring gardens. Thanks to the enclosed garden at the rear, the master bedroom is very quiet at all times.One flight up is the top indoor level for a sun-flooded media room/additional living space/loft-like bedroom that is bright and airy, where you have an additional outdoor terrace on both the front and rear sides of the building. Both are landscaped and zen-like. This floor also features a full bathroom.On the very top floor, there's yet another outdoor terrace with pristine outdoor kitchen (refrigerator, sink, built-in grill), an additional sitting area shaded by a large pergola and with views of the financial district in Manhattan. There is beautiful Wisteria that covers the pergola in flowers twice during the summertime, and gorgeous greenery that fills the roof deck.The roof deck also offers views down to Red Hook and the New York harbor over Buttermilk Channel. The F train is visible in the distance as it travels past the rooftops of Brooklyn, as well as the spire of the church of St Mary, Star of the Sea (the church in which Al Capone was married!). Additionally, according to YIMBY.com, newly revealed renderings show an exciting future for the Gowanus Canal waterfront and surrounding streetscape along Carroll Street, just a stone's throw away from 155 Nelson, including a drastically reinvigorated public thoroughfare with open green spaces, recreational boating, new benches, and a winding esplanade.This townhome offers a spacious duplex on the garden level, making it an amazing investment opportunity as well. There is a current tenant in place until November 30, 2022.In this 2 bed + home office, 2 bath duplex, the open-plan living & dining area is complete with a beautiful chef's kitchen and has been tastefully appointed with top-of-the-line fixtures, white marble countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The fantastic full garden off the living room completes the picture with oversized windows, allowing tenants to enjoy indoor/outdoor living and dining. Down one flight of stairs, the oversized master bedroom with an enormous en-suite home office is the perfect work from home setup. The generously sized second bedroom with ample closet space is just down the hall with a large lovely bathroom.Located on a quiet, tree lined street in Carroll Gardens, 155 Nelson is easily accessed with all the services you will need on the same block. Here you can find numerous cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques and grocery stores.

Carroll Gardens | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Filled with charming churches, whose ringing bells punctuate the days, together with quirky boutiques, trendy bars, Italian bakeries, and restaurants featuring a wide variety of cuisines, with an emphasis on traditional Italian cuisine, Carroll Gardens maintains a sense of Old World charm. While most of the restaurants are small and family-owned, there are Michelin-rated restaurants for those special date nights. Abundant coffee shops and bakeries ensure you are never far from a tasty pastry and your next cup of joe.

Unlike many neighborhoods, Carroll Gardens has an impressive array of grocery stores, including the popular Court Street Grocers. While Carroll Park is the main green space, located in the heart of the neighborhood, there are other parks, such as the Brooklyn Bridge Park, Cadman Plaza Park, and Van Voorhees Playground, all within easy walking distance.

Court and Smith Streets are the main commercial areas, packed with bakeries, intimate bars, unique boutiques, and small mom-and-pop Italian cafes, many with sidewalk or patio seating. Court Street has most of the older businesses that have operated for generations in the same location. Smith Street has more trendy establishments. 

If you are looking for a neighborhood that is quieter and less congested, Carroll Gardens might be a perfect fit. It is a great place to raise a family, with good schools and safe streets. It is the type of place where you will know the names of your neighbors and the owners of the shops and restaurants you frequent. It is a great walkable neighborhood for retirees, and an easy commute into the city for young professionals. The streets are shady and tree-lined, and many feature brownstones and townhouses that sport sizeable front gardens, adding to the natural charm of the neighborhood.
