16 2nd Place in Carroll Gardens offers a truly rare opportunity in New York City. Situated between large front and back gardens on one of the neighborhood’s most beautiful blocks, this 34-foot, extra-wide home boasts almost 6,000 square feet of interior space rich with potential and 3,000 SF of private gardens. Wrought iron gates on 2nd Place welcome you into the lush, 33-foot front garden, where a walkway surrounded by greenery leads to the expansive home with four windows across providing lots of natural light. Upon entering the parlor level, 12' 9" ceilings adorned with original, pre-war detail illustrate the potential waiting to be uncovered. A grand staircase, complete with elegant skylight, brings you to the upper floors, each with high ceilings and spacious bedrooms. At nearly 2,000 square feet, the back garden can be a private retreat or a fabulous space for hosting exquisite, outdoor parties. Built as a grand, single-family home in the 1850s, currently each 1500 SF floor of the house is configured as a floor-through apartment plus a full garden level with a summer kitchen and full bath. With either configuration, 16 2nd Place presents the unique opportunity to create a customized, luxury retreat. The garden and parlor levels would create a magnificent owner’s duplex with nearly 3,000 square feet of living space while the other floors can generate a substantial rental income. Restored to its original layout, the property would also make an impressive, single-family home unlike any other. Carroll Gardens, named for the beautiful, oversized front gardens unique to the neighborhood, is a quiet oasis for its residents while still offering the best of Brooklyn. Henry Street, Court Street, and Smith Street all provide wonderful dining and shopping options including local favorites such as Buttermilk Channel, Prime Meats, Vinny’s, Lucali Pizza, Court Street Grocers, and Frankie’s 457 Spuntino. Other attractions include Carroll Park and a farmer’s market on Sundays in front of PS 58. The F & G subway lines are just three blocks away on 2nd Place, and Manhattan is easily accessible via the Battery Park Underpass. EASY TO SHOW. DELIVERED VACANT. SHOWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
