On the parlor floor of an Italianate brownstone, this Carroll Gardens one-bedroom has a bit of outdoor space along with room for a home office.
The circa 1870s row house at 18 3rd Place lost its Italianate exterior details, including a bracketed cornice and a pedimented door hood, not long after the historic tax photo was taken with a remodeling that included a streamlined parapet in place of the cornice.
Alterations of a similar 20th century vintage are visible on the interior of this rental as well, with arched openings separating the rooms. Still remaining are the wood floors with inlaid borders and the high ceilings. The unit is laid out with a bedroom facing the street with a living room and kitchen at the rear.
Two windows in the living room look out over a landscaped garden and adjoining the living room is the L-shaped kitchen. The windowed space has wood cabinets and a door leading out to a private rear deck.
A windowless room at the center of the apartment is shown outfitted as a nursery in the listing photos but would also make a roomy work-from-home space. Wood doors and a transom are set into the arched opening to the bedroom, providing some privacy. It has two windows facing the street and a closet.
While access to the nicely landscaped garden shown in the listing photos isn’t included in the rental that private wood deck overlooks it and has room for outdoor dining.
The four-family row house was an Open House Pick back in 2015, eventually selling in 2017 for $3.1 million.
Priced at $3,100 a month, this rental unit is listed with Gail Donnarumma of Compass. Worth the ask?
