Don’t let the listing’s “carriage house” label give you the impression that 323 Pacific Street is old or quaint. Yes, the look of this decked-out home was inspired by 19th-century stables, but with a whopping 5,895 square feet of space, this newly built townhouse is vastly larger and dramatically more luxurious than the area’s average historic horse home.
And, holy cow, has it got amenities to match its price tag.
Behind the home’s 25-foot-wide “handcrafted brick facade” are five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a private parking garage, two laundry rooms, and an elevator. The grand ground floor has a sprawling 700-square-foot kitchen lined with 200-year-old reclaimed hemlock and bluestone flooring. Oh, and it’s got a wood-burning fireplace. And a butler’s pantry.
The home has space for a theater or gym on the lowest level and a library on the second floor. The third floor master suite includes a luxurious dressing room lined in black walnut and a marbled master bathroom including soaking tub, steam shower, and dual vanity. The entire top floor — with its two terraces — could be a second master suite or private apartment.
There’s central AC and radiant-heat flooring throughout — even the driveway has a heated snow melt system.
Developed by Bluerock Real Estate, this home is one of four adjacent new townhouses at 321-325 Pacific Street. Bluerock bought the site in the spring 2013 for $3.32 million — it was just an empty parking lot at the time.
The homes’ architect of record — Gary Kliesch and Associate Architects — has designed a number of residential developments that look like 19th century buildings with updated doors and windows. This row is one of a number of Brooklyn townhouses — some modern, some vintage-inspired — to come to market in the last few years.
The listing is from Alexander Maroni of Douglas Elliman.
Would you call this home a carriage house? What do you think of the wood-paneled kitchen ceiling?
