A five-bedroom that gets the best of two brownstone Brooklyn neighborhoods

Share this Article

Carroll Gardens is an unquestionably coveted neighborhood in Brooklyn. This five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom sits within its boundaries, but that's not all:  it's also just a few blocks from an equally beloved spot, Cobble Hill. 

Though it straddles two quintessentially brownstone Brooklyn areas, 288 Sacket Street, repped by the Corcoran Group, is a modern brick number built in 2013. There's none of the issues that plague old-school brownstones—which we love here at Brick, by the way. There's plenty of light and the kitchen and baths are stocked with modern conveniences such as plenty of storage, Ceasarstone countertops, a massive island for food prep, double sinks, a separate shower, and a whirlpool tub. (You also get your own laundry room.)

Rooms are spacious, windows tall, and layouts less compartmentalized. 

There's a yard and the roof deck comes with a precious commodity: dramatic views of Manhattan. 

All of this doesn't come cheap, however; the house, which has been on the market for around three weeks, is asking $4.35 million.
