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 5,800 sq. ft. home include spacious front gardens and a large south facing back garden, a patio, two large decks, 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 by 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.
