You’ll have to climb to the fourth floor to get to this rental, but once you are there you’ll find a nicely laid out one-bedroom with wood floors, tin ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and a bonus office space. It’s on the top floor of an 1870s Italianate in Carroll Gardens at 244 Sackett Street.
Other than the loss of its original cornice, on the exterior the brownstone, on a tree-lined street of 19th century dwellings, retains most of its original character. There’s a high stoop, pedimented door surround and bracketed lintels. The brownstone went co-op in the 1980s and has four units.
The floor-through apartment is set up with a living room at front, dining area in the center and bedroom at the rear. The same honeyed wood floors run throughout the main spaces and all the walls and ceilings are white, giving the unit a clean, open feel. The working fireplace in the living room has a marble mantel, and an archway separates the living room from the dining area.
While the galley kitchen off the living room is narrow, it is windowed and has an exposed brick wall, tile floor and wood cabinets.
French pocket doors separate the dining area from the bedroom, which has two windows and two closets. A doorway leads to a small windowed side room suitable for a home office.
The skylit bathroom has all white fixtures, including a Toto toilet, and a bright blue tile floor. There’s a closet next to the bathroom.
There’s additional storage in the basement and a laundry room. The apartment is just a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Court Street and the green space of Carroll Park.
It is asking $2,950 a month and is listed with Anastasia Antoniev of Douglas Elliman. What do you think?
