This 1,809-square-foot unit is the first resale at Sackett Union, the Carroll Gardens condo building that opened its doors at 291 Union Street in 2013. It’s got three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a daunting price tag: $2,750,000, or just above $1,500 a square foot.
The place is enormous, bigger even than an old-school co-op, but with a modern layout. Among other things, that means an open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen, measuring 30 feet wide, with a wall of windows.
The smallish kitchen has a SubZero fridge and a Wolf range. There’s not a ton of cabinet space, but there is a walk-in pantry. There’s plenty of closet space elsewhere, including a walk-in closet by the master bedroom.
There’s also a separate laundry room that comes equipped. The building offers a shared roof deck, an attended lobby, a fitness center, a kids’ playroom, basement storage and assigned bike storage. The unit — listed by James Cornell and Leslie Marshall of Corcoran — also comes with a deeded indoor parking space, which is nothing to scoff at.
Common charges and maintenance run $1,760, taxes another $1,028. It adds up to a considerable monthly layout — which begs the question of what buyer might find this place preferable to a townhouse, which may well not run much more — and perhaps even less with a rental to offset the mortgage.
It’s also worth noting that the ask represents a steep markup from what the place originally sold for in August 2013 — $1,825,118, according to PropertyShark — but then the market has changed a lot since then.
Think they’re overreaching, or might they find a buyer at the current price?
