221 Carroll Street

If history and grandeur get your imagination running wild, then this swoon-worthy Italianate Carroll Gardens stunner is not one to be missed! Set just a few houses West of bustling Court Street and Carroll Park, 221 was built in the later half of the 19th century and is dripping with restored details from Brooklyn's Golden Age. Through its original iron gate and up the grand brownstone stoop, you enter into a magnificent foyer with black and white chevron marble floors for a peek into the house's piece de resistance. The 15' x 34' grand salon with 12'4' ceilings, a center wood burning fireplace and crown mouldings restored and maintained like few others presents an entertaining space with the capacity and warmth to hold event-sized gatherings or a cozy game night at home in front of the fire. White oak floors compliment those in the foyer and continue from this truly majestic room into its extension cradling a newly imagined chef's kitchen with Carrara marble waterfall countertops, volumes of storage, brand new top of the line appliances and large iron and glass french doors that lead out to the ipe wood deck which floats over the meticulously maintained formal garden.

The second floor of this stunner has front and rear well-proportioned en suite bedrooms. The front bath has a huge oval tub and spa-like fixtures to satisfy even the most discerning guests. The back bathroom is more intimate with a glass walk-in shower, vanity and a in-shower window overlooking the garden. Both baths are beautifully tiled, sport Duravit fixtures and custom cabinetery. Each bedroom has its own walk in closet with custom built-ins for hanging and hiding. In the center of the second floor is a large storage closet proportioned to be a zoom room or private getaway from the hustle of a thriving household. Also on this floor is a vented laundry closet with side by side LG front-loaders.

Up the skylit stairs, double doors welcome you to a lofty and super bright, full-floor owner's hideaway. Spanning the full 35 feet of the original house, this room has 11 foot ceilings wirh two large skylights, two built out walk-in closets and a primary bathroom with Duravit fixtures, double sinks hovering below a large Victorian mirror and a walk in shower with both wall and rain heads.

The garden floor at 221 is currently used as an income producing rental property that has been completely renovated within the last few years. There is a large primary bedroom in the front, ample-sized living area in the middle with a well-appointed kitchen and second bedroom in the rear leading to its covered patio. This unit will be delivered vacant and can easily be integrated into the rest of the house with minimal disruption to your busy lives.

The bone-dry cellar has 7' ceilings with original brick arches, separate laundry and boiler rooms with updated mechanicals and two brand new 42 gallon hot water heaters.

The opportunity to purchase 221 Carroll Street is an opportunity that is rarely seen in Carroll Gardens or any of the surrounding neighborhoods. Beyond the painstaking care that has been taken to maintain and restore its original integrity, this house sits just in the middle, but far enough off the buzz of the abundant goods and services Court and Smith Streets have to offer. Whether you're in the mood for a shopping trip to Espisitos to load up for the Sunday barbecue, a morning coffee meeting at East One Coffee Roasters or an evening stroll to Lucali, you are literally in the center of it all.
