355 President Street offers the buyer that thinks that they have "seen everything" a rare treat of extraordinary design and convenience. This wonderful corner property in charming Carroll Gardens offers a mint condition one-family townhouse with a terrace and garden, PLUS a newly built carriage house in the back complete with indoor parking for one car, a home office, and a unique apartment complete with kitchen and full bath. Renovated just a few years ago, the design is fresh, the light is extraordinary from three exposures, and the ability to park/work/live or have guests stay over in your very own backyard, is unprecedented. Imagine the joy of moving into a triple-mint home with all of the aforementioned delights just one block away from every amenity for which Brownstone Brooklyn has become so coveted, including award-winning restaurants, schools, shops, parks, quiet tree-lined blocks, and public transportation. Expect to be transported into a residential compound where every warm historic detail has been restored in tandem with the addition of every modern luxury you crave. Chef's kitchen, spa baths, designer wallpaper, central AC, new windows, modern shutters, linen Roman shades, architectural lighting, and an automatic garage door are the icing on top of a townhouse and carriage house replete with wide-plank pine floors, a stunning staircase with mahogany balustrades, four marble fireplace mantles, dentil molding, original window and base casings, intricate fretwork, all the perfect backdrop for a modern or traditional aesthetic. Set back from the street for maximum privacy by a 30' deep front yard characteristic of this quiet and low-density neighborhood, you will enter up a stoop to a majestic parlor floor that belies its width. With the removal of all interior walls, the addition of an unexpected extension, and windows on three sides, this floor will become your primary hangout. Grounded by a stunning kitchen in the middle, a living room in front with a gas fireplace, a powder room, and a formal dining room in back that flows seamlessly to your private garden, you will never want to leave this floor except to sleep. The center open kitchen offers an island of grand proportions, loads of custom stainless fronted cabinetry, Fisher and Paykel fridge, Wolf Range, TWO Bosch dishwashers, oversized sink, and a true walk-in pantry with electricity, perfect to ensure that your honed Carrara marble counters will always be free of clutter. The formal dining room includes glamorous Osbourne and Little wallpaper, and an elegant powder room includes a poured-concrete countertop, stone sink, and atmospheric grass-cloth walls. The top floor beckons you up the stairs with a luminous skylight, offering two ensuite bedrooms, including a Primary bedroom with a private terrace and double closets. The Primary bathroom is a spacious marvel with a free-standing tub, walk-in-shower, radiant heated floors, an oversized marble basin perfect for two, marble basketweave mosaic floors and subway tiled walls. The garden level offers two additional bedrooms, one with an ensuite bath, plus a laundry room and another full bath, and a large bedroom in the back that also makes a great second living room or oversized office. The additional four bathrooms are equally luxurious with radiant heated floors, oversized hex floors, custom vanities with stone tops, and nickel hardware throughout. All four bedrooms are light-filled, and the large fourth bedroom downstairs makes a perfect 2nd living room with its exposed beams, custom mill-work, and a second gas fireplace. Head outside into the charming and private courtyard complete with bluestone pavers and oversized planters, and enter right into the carriage house where you can either start your work for the day, visit your guests, or get into your car without missing a beat. An enchanting apartment on the top floor of the carriage house offers a custom kitchenette, full bathroom, and unexpectedly high beamed ceilings. An additional office downstairs can remain, or be removed if you want to park an oversized vehicle. This is a home with so many unexpected features, and such a high-quality renovation, that you must view it in person to truly appreciate its quality and originality. A quick jaunt to Carroll Park, Smith Street, Court Street, Whole Foods, the F/G/R trains, and every amenity for which Carroll Gardens, Boerum Hill, and Gowanus have become so beloved. Shown by Private Appointment Only.
