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.
We toured one of the unfinished seven townhouses on Sackett Street yesterday, part of the 11 townhomes on Sackett and Union and the condo complex that comprise the Sackett Union development. Ken Horn, president of developer Alchemy Properties, said the Sackett Street townhouses would be finished by November 1, and the Union Street townhouses would be finished in the next year. The two-family home we saw at 298 Sackett is one of four townhouses still available. It had five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms spread across four stories plus a basement, totaling 4,240 square feet with an asking price of $3,680,000.
When we last toured the complex, the townhouse we saw was in a much rawer state. At 298 Sackett, there is a one-bedroom rental on the garden level. In the owner’s triplex, all the living is on the parlor (first) floor, including a small den at the front of the house, a powder room, and plenty of closets. The kitchen is open to the living room and there is no formal dining room. Bedrooms are on the second and third floors. Each townhouse has a roof deck and a backyard. The houses come with a parking space in the adjacent condo complex, and for $250 a year, townhouse residents can use the fitness center and children’s playroom in the condo building.
