This circa 1870s three-story brick townhouse in Carroll Gardens is completely renovated, mixing modern finishes with a handful of original details. Standing a narrowish 16.5 feet by 38 feet, it’s at 346 Hoyt Street, between Carroll and President streets, in the Carroll Gardens Historic District.
At first glance, it might look like a flip, but it’s been in the same hands since 2007 and closer inspection reveals numerous custom touches. The garden floor is open plan, perhaps to best use the full width of the house, with a glass wall in the rear.
In any case, a bit of original detail survives — wainscoting in the stairway, the mahogany newel post and banister, and some door and window casings and other trim.
There are also coffered ceilings (we’re guessing these are new) and parquet floors. The kitchen and baths are nicely appointed; one has an extra large tub and modern geometric patterned wallpaper.
The open kitchen has a granite-topped island and a backsplash of blue tile; the fridge looks extra wide, though that may just be the photo.
The second floor holds a master suite with a walk-through closet and an extra-large bathroom that encompasses a sitting area. If you don’t favor a sitting area next to your tub, the bathroom could presumably be walled off easily enough, leaving a separate office space or nursery.
Upstairs are two more bedrooms along with another pass-through dressing room and a full bath with washer and dryer.
The cellar is finished, and the house has central air conditioning (a mini-split system from the look of the cellar unit). The backyard — the only part of the house that doesn’t look recently made over — holds a wooden deck and a brick patio.
Listed by Compass brokers Lindsay Barton Barrett and Christina Abad, the house is asking $3.3 million. You can eyeball it at an open house Sunday, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. In the meantime, what do you think?
