Carroll Gardens offers many exciting new condos: Third + Bond, an award winning contextual complex of townhouse-style condos, 523 Court Street, a modern seven story elevator building with private terraces and Manhattan views, and the wide open lofts at 505 Court Street.
More Many potential residents, though, are equally drawn by Carroll Gardens’ stock of historic townhouses for sale and for rent. In the ’70s, some 150 buildings along Carroll and President streets were put in a landmark district, and the report on those Carroll Gardens townhouses noted their “quiet dignity.” That’s mainly because the streets in Carroll Gardens were designed with thirty-three-foot setbacks, which created unusually large and welcoming front yards for its rowhouses. True to its name, the Carroll Gardens neighborhood (which was the setting for the bakery in “Moonstruck”) is a great place to live if you have a green thumb. Step inside the Carroll Gardens brownstones and you’ll find incredible detailing like original wood trim, lead-paned windows, fireplaces, and high, sculptured ceilings. Step outside, and you might think that you’re in Greenwich Village — you’ll find cozy area spots like Cafe Doré for roti, Caputo’s Fine Foods for fresh mozzarella, and Olive’s Very Vintage for party dresses and bracelets. Carroll Park, which runs from Court to Smith streets, is Brooklyn’s third-oldest park. In addition to its welcome greenery, this Carroll Gardens park has picnic tables and two Bocce courts. Less
The Carroll Gardens Gardens
In 1846, Richard Butt created the "front gardens" to the famous brownstone houses in the oldest section of the neighborhood. The brownstones are set back from the street by 30–40 feet, to create atypical large front gardens.
