This five-story neo-Renaissance brownstone has a number of stand-out period details. Located at 845 Carroll Street in the Park Slope Historic District, it’s a half-block walk from Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza.
Currently configured as a garden-level rental under a four-story owners unit, it was built by builder-architect William Flanagan in 1896 as one of a row of six homes. The home has been in the same family since at least the 1990s and is wonderfully preserved.
The home’s 21-foot-wide facade, like many on the block, is a looker. There are triple bay windows with colonettes and ornamentation, heavily ornamented front door surrounds, the original iron grills embellished with lion heads and a bracketed metal cornice.
A double parlor is divided by a columned screen. There’s stained glass windows, wainscoting, modest ceiling medallions, millwork moldings and a total of nine mantels.
Some original inlaid parquet floors can be found throughout. The dining room has dark woodwork, wallpaper, a coffered ceiling and, according to the listing, built-ins, although they’re not visible in the photos.
The kitchen, which is quite large, has an eat-in island, breakfast bar with seating for four and room for a table among its rich baseboards and mirrored mantel.
On the second-story, there’s a large deck. The top three floors are nearly identical: two bedrooms, one in the front and one in the rear, each with a walk-in closet and dressing room which, in the top two floors, is also a pass-through. The fourth-story lacks bay windows and has a front corner office.
The kitchen in the garden rental is tucked into the back of the living room. There’s a large bedroom in the extension and a smaller bedroom that may work better as an office in the rear. There’s also washer dryer and private garden access.
The one pictured bathroom has an enclosed glass shower and is cleanly renovated. A second-floor bathroom, not pictured, has a clawfoot tub, according to the listing.
Anchor Associates’ Fern Kamins has the listing, which is asking for $5.45 million. Do you think they’ll get their ask?
