Many visitors and residents are drawn by Carroll Gardens’ stock of historic townhouses for sale and for rent. The neighborhood also offers many exciting new condos, including 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, as well as the wide open lofts at 505 Court Street.
More In the ’70s, some 150 buildings along both Carroll and President Streets were classified as a landmark district, noted for their “quiet dignity.” Helping to create this aura were the streets in Carroll Gardens designed with thirty-three-foot setbacks, creating unusually large and welcoming front yards for its rowhouses. True to its name, the Carroll Gardens neighborhood 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 one of Brooklyn’s oldest parks. In addition to its welcome greenery, this splendid park has picnic tables and two Bocce Ball 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.
