A multi-family townhouse like this—double-wide, with a large solarium—doesn't come on the market every day, and it has the price tag to show for it. Located in Fort Greene at 181 Carlton Ave., this 40-foot wide townhouse is listed for $6,885,000.
Of course, should you have the nearly $7 million to spend, you would be faced with a conundrum: Elect to convert the 7,500-square-foot building into a massive single residence, or keep it in its current configuration as a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath duplex with two rental apartments.
The owner's apartment features hardwood floors, crown moldings, and a kitchen with blue cabinets and expansive counters that wrap around onto an island (peninsula?) with a stove.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of the townhouse is the large solarium/playroom, which looks out on the backyard. The yard has a wood deck and ornamental plantings.
In addition to all that, the house comes with two parking spots.
The townhouse is a block from Fort Greene Park and a few blocks from the G train at Fulton. A few blocks beyond is Atlantic Terminal. The Brooklyn Academy of Music and other arts venues are nearby, as are lots of places to eat and drink.
