Don't miss the opportunity to live on this block! From the moment you arrive on President Street you know you have arrived to an unparalleled block in Carroll Gardens; this is the epitome of Brownstone living in one of Brooklyns top-rated neighborhoods. The block itself is unique and is home to a small number of front garden Brownstones only 63 to be exact. These homes are set back further from the street, and these front gardens have become an iconic depiction of the neighborhood; in particular this professionally- designed garden makes this house stand out from the rest.
Just down the block is Carroll Park, Brooklyn third-oldest park, which was created in the late 1840s. Carroll Park hosts one of the best farmers markets all year long on the weekends. Literally every single thing you could ever need is right outside your door. This block is also home to many episodes of the Amazons Marvelous Mrs. Mazel among many other shows and movies. President Street was designated in 1973 as a protected enclave, an oasis within the city, an awareness of the value of open space and a remarkable degree of architectural unity and a quiet dignity.
As you walk up the quintessential Brownstone stoop you find beautiful original double entry doors and the original door bell. What distinguish this house is the expansive height of the interior ceilings coupled with the period craftsmanship. The home underwent a full renovation in 2011, fully updating electric, plumbing and HVAC systems (including central AC), while maintaining its original charm. The house has been professionally insulated to reduce heating and cooling costs. The home boasts four Italianate original marble mantles, which remain decorative but could be retrofitted to burn gas or wood.
The gorgeous parlor floor is 42 feet deep with 11-foot ceilings; this is the heart of the home with a comfortable front sitting room and a spectacular open custom-designed kitchen and dining area. The parlor floor comes complete with a very well-designed half bath and amazing white oak floors which provide a chic, contemporary finish. The kitchen is finished with custom cabinets and is full of natural light; it overlooks the deck which is ideal for hosting a sunset cocktail party or a fantastic BBQ; there is already an outdoor gas hookup for your grill. One can step down into the oversized garden which is a gem and a quiet oasis complete with fig and apple tree, blueberry bushes, room for gardening your favorite herbs and fresh vine ripe tomatoes.
Head to the first floor to find ample custom closets in every room, and a light-filled bathroom. Your washer / dryer is conveniently located on this floor making laundry days a breeze and featuring an extra-large washer/dryer. This can easily be used as the master-suite floor.
The top floor of this very tall brownstone has plenty of natural light beaming through with its North South exposure. This top floor has two large bedrooms, several closets, plenty storage and a wonderfully retro full bath.
The garden level, with its north-facing kitchen, wonderful bathroom and a well sized bedroom leading out to the oversized garden, can be whatever you would like it to be; it is currently set up as a high-income rental, but can be used as a nanny suite or room for mom and pop. The rear yard is great for planting your favorite vegetables/herbs, flowers and shrubs.
The basement space can make for ideal storage, or finish it off and create a rec room, TV room, gym, sauna or a fantastic wine cellar; its all music to my ears! The best part is that you get to decide and design it to your liking; the basement has 7-foot ceilings and plenty of space to fit your needs.
