Description

Situated on a charming tree-lined lane and insulated from the street by a large front garden, 46 1st Place is one of a handful of the famed 19th century townhomes from which the neighborhood draws its name. And while it is concealed beneath a clean, unassuming facade stretching 24 ft. wide and four stories high, this remarkable 6-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home blends a startling collection of architectural detail with a layout ripe with possibility. This house is in great condition and ready for move in or for customization.

Features of this approximately 5,500 sq. ft. home include a spacious front gardens and a large south facing back garden, a patio, a large deck, an elegant spiral staircase, four fireplaces, four kitchens, and a series of exquisite touches including stained glass windows and ornate crown molding. A legal 4-family townhouse, the home is currently broken up as an owner’s duplex and a pair of income-producing rental units. Therefore, in addition to a restoration of the owner’s duplex that keeps the rental units intact, there is the potential to convert the garden floor into an additional rental unit or to transform the entire space into a palatial single-family home.

The owner’s duplex, which occupies the garden and parlor levels of the home, boasts an open living and dining space adorned a pair of majestic Corinthian columns, a fireplace, intricate molding, and gorgeous hardwood floors. The duplex also has a renovated eat-in kitchen, a series of large rooms on the garden level, and direct access to both the rear garden and the patio. Each of the rental units, which occupy the upper levels of the home, possess light-filled living rooms and kitchens, formal dining areas, a fireplace, a full bathroom, and a pair of bedrooms. The 2nd floor unit has an additional fireplace as well as access to a massive deck that overlooks the rear garden.

46 1st Place sits on a 24 ft. x 100 ft. lot in one of Brooklyn’s most sought-after neighborhoods, Carroll Gardens. The neighborhood is known for its picturesque tree-lined streets and friendly community vibe. The home is close to a number of restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores, and is a short walk to the F and G subway lines. This is an opportunity that should not be missed. Welcome home to this spectacular turn of the century brownstone nestled on a picture-perfect Carroll Gardens block! ° This 4 family townhome is currently configured as an owner's duplex occupying the garden level plus parlor floor, and two income-producing rental units. The two upper floor apartments feature sun-filled living rooms, dining rooms, two beds, and high ceilings. The 3rd-floor unit also boasts a fireplace and a huge deck overlooking the garden. ° This spectacular home offers endless possibilities, including being converted to a single-family home, adding an additional garden rental unit, or a condo conversion. 46 First Place is truly impressive...24 feet wide, boasting (approximately) 5800 SF of living space and featuring stunning architectural details. A 24x100 lot size is truly a rare find! ° The outdoor spaces are in abundance...charming, lush front and rear gardens, a deck off the parlor floor kitchen which overlooks the tranquil garden and another lovely 24x15 terrace off the second-floor kitchen/living room. ° Enter this regal home and be welcomed with a wide foyer with a gorgeous mahogany banister. As you continue into the parlor floor duplex, you will be greeted by an expansive living and dining area, stunning, handcrafted moldings, hardwood floors, a fireplace, a large master suite, a bright, charming eat-in kitchen, and access to both the deck and back rear yard. In addition, soaring 12' foot ceilings make the space feel endless! An oasis to entertain or just relax in the comfort of a majestic home. The garden level is equally spacious with a kitchen, three additional large rooms, two baths and direct access to the rear garden and patio. ° The cellar provides ample space for laundry and can easily be re-imagined as a media room, state-of-the-art gym, wine storage, or whatever your imagination creates. The roof is primed for a roof garden which would offer breathtaking views of Manhattan and yet another place to dine al fresco. ° Carroll Gardens is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Brooklyn.
