This two-bedroom condo in a recently converted circa-1900 Renaissance Revival building at 24 3rd Street in Carroll Gardens is long and narrow but includes some historic detail and modern touches. The eight-unit building was converted to condos in 2010, so the renovation is relatively new.
The four-story orange brick building has a handsome metal cornice with a wreath motif and two prominent rows of bay window. The building appears to be a walkup, and the unit for sale is on the second floor.
The living room is 15 feet by 13 feet and includes high ceilings, crown molding, a fireplace and a bay window overlooking the street. The photo shows a roaring fire, but the listing doesn’t specify if the fireplace is a functioning one.
There are new wood floors throughout and updates such as recessed lighting. The kitchen is open to the living room and has a green glass tile backsplash and space for a small table. The wood-veneer cabinets, counter tops and stainless steel appliances all appear to be in good shape as they likely date from the conversion.
Despite its relatively modest 865 square feet, the apartment has 1.5 baths. The half bath also houses the laundry. The bedrooms are not huge but they are close in size and both have closets. The largest is 10.5 feet by 12 feet, and the smaller measures 10 by 10 feet.
The monthly expenses are relatively easy on the wallet, but unlike many newer Brooklyn condo buildings, this one does not have any amenities beyond storage available in the basement. Common charges are $418, which includes heat and hot water. Taxes are $108 a month.
This building is one of a group of five identical bay-fronted ones on a tree-lined block of brick row houses and small apartment buildings a half block from the F and G trains at the Carroll Street stop. The apartment is also just a short walk from many of Carroll Gardens’ destinations on Smith and Court Streets, including Carroll Park.
For someone who doesn’t need a lot of space and is looking to buy an apartment that does not require any renovation or remodeling, this unit might be a good choice. The current owner purchased the apartment shortly after it was converted to condos in 2010 for $509,000.
