Welcome home to 100 Third Place, a beautiful 1899 house on one of Carroll Gardens' premier tree-lined blocks. Checking in at approximately 3800 interior square feet, this lovely, well-kept home (with plenty of elegant original detail) features characteristics that you can't renovate--a gloriously lush front yard; an oversized garden perfect for entertaining; nearly 21-feet of width to work with. Currently functioning as a 2-family (owner's triplex over garden rental), this legal 3-family offers endless possibilities of various scopes. Inhabit the entire home for grand living at its finest; rent out the garden unit or top floor for some income; keep it as an owner's duplex with two rentals if you wish. The contiguous configuration, which provides interior access from the garden level to the sun-drenched top floor, allows for easy and flexible transitioning to your preferred usage. A cosmetic renovation or a complete and dramatic customization: The choice is yours. Alternate floorplans give a hint at what you can do with the mere adjusting of some walls (of course, please consult with your architect or contractor for any official plans).
Enter through your private gate and stroll through the aforementioned front yard, rich with trees, planters and a bench to soak in the scenery. From there, you can enter via the parlor level or the garden floor beneath the stairs. The parlor floor boasts towering ceilings; enormous depth of scale with space for two living areas, a dining room, an eat-in kitchen and a sun room; an original fireplace that can be restored to wood-burning status or converted to gas; an open stainless steel kitchen (including a wine fridge, Miele dishwasher and Bosch microwave) with granite countertops and plenty of cabinet space; and a powder room already in place. Stairs lead down to your own private backyard. This entire level has been virtually staged in the photos you see here to highlight the unique magnificence that over 50 feet of length--plus nearly 50 feet of garden living!--can do for your entertaining desires.(Original photos for comparison are available upon request, of course.) The garden floor, which is currently a stand-alone rental, contains a spacious living room and bedroom, gigantic bathroom with soaking tub, and direct access to a covered patio and the backyard; it could easily transition to a guest suite or children's play room/den for those who wish to reclaim the entire house for themselves.
Trot upstairs to the third floor, which could easily function as a sprawling master suite floorthru; treetop views greet you from your bedroom, and there's plenty of space left for a second sitting area, home office, or additional bedroom. Ditto the top floor, which features fantastic light from both front and back (North and South) and more than enough room to create three distinct bedrooms if that's what you fancy. 100 Third Place is situated in premier Carroll Gardens, two blocks to the F/G train and steps to bustling Smith Street, with all its marvelous shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and exciting activities for all moods and occasions. Come see what all the fuss is about for yourself!
