About 853 Carroll Street Combo

Welcome to 853 Carroll Street! This gorgeous Romanesque Revival mansion on one of the most desirable blocks in Park Slope offers five condo residences for sale. Designed by the legendary CPH Gilbert, built by well-known developer Harvey Murdock, and located in Brooklyn's "Gold Coast", 853 Carroll is a sterling example of the luxury constructed in 1880's Park Slope. Well maintained over the years, the current owner has invested a lot in upgrading the systems while keeping the original details.

An extraordinary opportunity awaits with the combined purchase of Units 1 and G, presenting a rare chance to own 2,412 square feet of living space, 620 square feet of private outdoor space and complemented by 241 square feet of private storage. Nestled within one of the neighborhood's most coveted blocks, this offering stands out, priced significantly below the market average for similarly sized homes. The versatility of this property is unmatched-you have the option to maintain them as separate units or seamlessly merge them into a truly exceptional duplex condominium. The potential for customization knows no bounds, with countless layout configurations possible. Picture yourself in a stunning four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence featuring lofty double or triple-height ceilings, all complemented by the allure of a spacious private yard. Unleash your vision and creativity with the aid of your trusted contractor. This is an opportunity not to be missed!

Residence No. 1, the Parlor duplex, has soaring ceilings, and period details abound. The first design element to greet you is a massive Silver-backed Mirror, an original detail that is beautiful and reflects natural light throughout the house. Grand oak molding frames the large bay windows overlooking the tree-lined street. A carved Ionic Column portal with hand-assembled beaded fretwork leads to the rear parlor. Each of the four rooms has the original white parquet flooring, but all have different inlaid borders, all well maintained like new.
Leading into the kitchen are 8-foot Mahogany pocket doors with acid-etched glass and a dormer of stained glass with an image of a Bloodroot flower (a native species of Brooklyn) sitting atop. Looking closely at all the millwork you'll find many native Northeastern flowers throughout - a movement at the time to bring nature inside. The eat-in kitchen itself is enormous. The hardwood shaker-style cabinets match well with the original details while the stainless steel appliances provide any home chef with an ideal kitchen. Access to the private gardens is off the kitchen. As you enter into the backyard, you will descend to the stone patio surrounded by mature trees. You'll love relaxing and entertaining in this peaceful green space.

Off the kitchen is a primary bedroom unlike any other on the market. The high-coved ceilings with the original floral plaster filigree are a hallmark of Gilbert's work and are on display. A large bay window naturally illuminates the room. Raised paneling, a vintage wooden mantel with three arched silver-backed mirrors, and hardwood floors are further evidence of the thought put into the design. There's a full en suite bath and oversized closet to complete this primary bedroom.

The lower level of the home has two secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is additional access to the backyard from one of the secondary bedrooms. A laundry room is located on this level of the home.

Residence G offers a unique connection to Residence 1 at the garden level, providing a seamless living experience. Presently designed as a studio with a fully equipped kitchen and independent access situated beneath the stoop, this residence offers convenience and privacy in a prime location.

As mentioned, your new home's location is idyllic. Visible from your front door is Prospect Park. Enjoy the Grand Army Plaza farmer's market and a quick walk to the Botanic Gardens and Brooklyn Museum. World-class dining is around the corner with notable favorites including Fausto, Masalawala & Sons, Runner Up, Miriam, Sushi Katsuei, and Haenyeo. You have it all within a six-block radius of your home. Close to both express and local subway lines, you're sure to find easy access to any location in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
