Perhaps you’ve been wondering whatever happened to the Carroll Gardens Atrocity, that unfortunate architectural collision at 45 3rd Place we called “the poster child for inconsiderate and non-contextual design in Brownstone Brooklyn.” Well, after lingering on the market for more than five years (first as separate units, then as one building), the entire thing finally sold for $2,440,000 in September, earning second place in our Last Week’s Biggest Sales post yesterday. Was there any discount for ugliness? There’s no way to know for sure. But we can tell you that the price per square foot was $660, vs. $741 for the neighborhood average for townhouses in the first half of 2012, the most recent period for which numbers are available, according to Brown Harris Stevens. (Market reports are due out tomorrow!) The original ask for the entire building was $2,995,000.
