Here’s an 1850s Carroll Gardens Italianate you don’t have to renovate or restore; it’s already been done by the broker-owner, with all the bells and whistles. The 20-foot-wide brick townhouse is set up as an owner’s triplex over a garden rental, both with separate entrances. The top three floors have brand-new electric, plumbing, central air, bathrooms, kitchen, floors, Wolf, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, Arclinea cabinets and Calacatta marble counters. The original staircase and the front exterior have been restored. Out back is a steel and ipe wood deck. While the house is merely a block from the BQE, we know from personal experience you can’t hear it from that distance. The listing doesn’t specify whether the house will be delivered vacant. For $3,600,000, how do you like it?
