A clean and sleek, modern interior hides inside this 19th century Neo Grec brownstone at 4 3rd Place in Carroll Gardens. The home, on a leafy street, with an extra-deep front yard, is configured as an owner’s duplex over a garden floor apartment.
The duplex’s parlor floor is one open, flowing space. The living room’s focal point is an inviting gas fireplace with a sculptural mantel made of concrete. A built-in banquette beneath the front window stretches across the width of the room. The living space is separated from the kitchen by a dining area with pendant lighting.
At the rear of the parlor floor, the kitchen is equipped with stylish wood cabinetry from Italian firm Poliform. The Sub-Zero appliances and large peninsula with plenty of room would make any cook feel at home. A wall of glass across the back of the house helps illuminate the parlor floor.
A powder room is tucked beneath the stairs. A glass door allows access to a burnished steel deck with a spiral staircase to the rear garden.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The large master bedroom at the front of the house features another gas fireplace with a marble mantel and a generously sized walk-in closet with its own skylight — one of several that brighten this level. Past the hallway’s modern steel and glass railing is a second bedroom at the rear of the home next to the full bath.
The garden level is home to a one-bedroom, one-bathroom rental unit. It also has access to the relaxing back yard that features a small fountain in its center. The semi-furnished cellar is being used as a workshop, but could easily be renovated into a rec room, gym or home office.
The townhouse, listed by Sal “Cappi” Capozucca and Victoria Capozucca of Brown Harris Stevens, is just a block and half from restaurants, bars and shops on Court Street, a 15-minute walk from Red Hook’s Van Brunt Street and just four blocks to the Carroll Street F and G station. It is asking $2.795 million.
