Property Description

Legend has it there's a 29 foot wide massive 4,700 square ft home in Carroll Gardens - on 1st place - with a 2 car driveway - 2 full width terraces - an indoor 220 square ft. garage with 12 foot ceilings and approximately 1,500 more buildable square footage able to be added to this already oversized home. Turns out, it's all true and is now available for sale for the first time since it was custom built for a large family - with truckloads of brick and concrete block, 52 years ago in 1970. Daniel Gale Sotheby's, Court St. is proud to offer perhaps the most unique property in Carroll Gardens for decades to come, don't miss out on this rare opportunity. Architectural rendering appearing in the main photo is merely one example of how this unique, oversized home can be built as a huge private 1 family, 5,900 + square foot custom home on just about the best block in Carroll Gardens, or divided into multiple condominiums for investment/income purposes. A third option is to move right in and collect a handsome rental income while you plan out the possibilities. No need to ever worry about looking for a parking spot, lugging groceries/packages for extended distances, or having a raindrop or snowflake touch your new shoes as you pull in to your heated , over-sized , 2 car garage- which can also be converted into living space. Currently situated as a 2 family home with an owner's duplex housing 5 large bedrooms on the parlor floor (which can all accommodate a king sized bed) , and 2 bathrooms. The main bedroom is tremendous and has its own en suite. Front bedroom has access to the full length balcony facing 1 st Place, which is approximately 26 feet x 5 ft. overlooking the historic brownstone laden 1st Place. On the ground floor ( 9 foot ceilings) is a full eat-in kitchen, an expansive dining room and a warm and spacious living room just 1 step off the kitchen, complete with a wood burning fireplace and another full, updated bathroom. Also on the ground floor, is the 220 square ft. garage. The basement also boasts 9 foot ceilings with a laundry room, another bathroom set-up, full windows and easy access to the oversized backyard. Basement expansion is possible. On the top floor rests a large 2 bedroom ( one with en - suite) apartment, approximately 1,600 square ft with a full dining room, living room, full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, washer/dryer and also has access to the additional full length balcony facing 1 st Place ( again, approximately 26 X 5 ft) Need extra room in your plans for a private elevator opening onto each floor? ... No problem at 18 1st Place, there is plenty of room. The backyard, which can be accessed via the main floor onto a cozy sitting patio, and also from the basement, can easily accommodate a large swimming pool, be transformed into a peaceful garden sanctuary with lots of extra room for entertaining - or perhaps an outdoor kitchen complete with a brick pizza oven, BBQ and/or smoker. With the addition of another floor and private roof deck, you will enjoy unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty. - Garage is currently being emptied, virtual photo displays garage as empty. Tip: A heated driveway would eliminate any need for shoveling or digging your car out of snow and ice while allowing hassle free access to your driveway, private garage and main entrance. First showings are planned for Saturday December 17th by appointment only, schedule your appointment now. This home will be delivered vacant. Happy Holiday Season to all! * Original C of O, building plans and recent independent appraisal available upon request to qualified buyers. * Contact listing agent for private showings and questions * All measurements are approximate * Compensation applies to all REBNY agents

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.
