The five brand new townhouses at Carlton Mews in Fort Greene hit the market Tuesday, each with a triplex and a two-bedroom garden apartment. We took a tour in person the same day, and they look as incredible in real life as they do here in the listing photos.
We speculate these were built to sell, not rent, but issues stemming from the collapse that killed a construction worker in 2012 may make that difficult or undesirable for now, at least.
Kudos to the architect, who is Darrin Krumpus of Boro Architects, according to the permits.
For $12,000 a month, the triplexes feature four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a den, large living room and basement storage. The 3,200-square-foot homes have bronze cabinet handles, Viking Stoves, gas fireplaces, zoned central heating and cooling and five-inch-wide oak plank floors. There’s also a deck and landscaped backyard shared with the garden apartment.
Downstairs, the two-bedroom garden apartments are 1,000 square feet and asking $3,750 a month. The finishes are not as nice as the triplexes, but they still sport white oak floors, stainless steel appliances and central heating and cooling. Five of the 10 units — two triplexes and three garden apartments — have already been rented, agent John LaRocca of Arena Real Estate told us.
The Landmarks-approved townhouses at 225-233 Carlton Avenue were built in a traditional 19th century style that mirrors the rest of the block. We’ve been watching them since construction began two and a half years ago, as well as the adjacent church, which was converted to 12 rentals and began leasing last month.
More photos after the jump! What do you think of how they turned out?
