Vintage Carroll Gardens! Prime, pre-war 2-bedroom coop epitomizing old-school charm. This elegant home has been hand-crafted from floor to ceiling with an archeologist's hand and artist's eye, restored with turn-of-the century details and complementary vintage touches. Original pre-war details throughout the apartment. Nestled amidst the lush greenery of brownstone backyards, it has 3 full exposures. Charming entry foyer leads into a living room with a 10.5-feet-high ceiling lined with custom-built bookshelves and dining area overlooking the common garden. Windowed kitchen harkens to the 1930s: tin ceilings, custom shelves, checkered floor tiles, and vintage 1933 Formica countertops with chrome diner's edge, sourced from new old stock. Classic, windowed bath includes an immaculately restored claw-foot tub in a bead board alcove, vintage cabinet, and penny-tiled floors. South-facing master bed has beaming sunlight, tin ceilings, Schoolhouse Electric railway-style wall sconces, custom window seat with built-in drawers and original pocket doors stripped to pre-war magnificence. Floor-through second bedroom/home office with tin ceilings and tall windows provides versatile, flexible space. Pet-friendly, professionally managed, lovingly maintained, and financially sound 8-unit coop. The basement offers large FREE storage areas and convenient laundry. Plus a serene, landscaped common garden and common roof with panoramic views of Manhattan & Brooklyn! Located in the heart of Carroll Gardens on a quiet side-street 2 blocks from Carroll Park & the F/G train, with the splendor of Brooklyn Bridge Park an easy walk! Zoned for PS 58.
