29 Carroll Street
The Carroll Street Townhomes are a collection six single family homes, each with soaring ceilings and light flooded living spaces, 4-bedrooms, 3 and a half bathrooms, Brooklyn and Manhattan skyline views, and nearly 3,000 square feet to settle into. Flooded with sunlight from expansive triple paned windows throughout and a central stairwell that draws in light from above, this is an open, airy, modern and luminous home. The level of quality and architectural detailing throughout is impeccable. The charm, character and warmth is unmistakable. The Carroll Street Townhomes have been built to international passive house standards, which means it requires as much as 90 percent less heating and cooling yet will maintain a consistently comfortable temperature and provide you with fresh, clean air all year round. Put it all together and you have... home.
Enter the double-height living area and you will be instantly struck by the geometry of this grand home, playful yet thoughtful with its squares and angles, shifting sightlines, and verticality that creates an open and gracious living space. Glass and white oak welcome you into the double height front living room and continue throughout this home.
Head towards the back, past a powder room, to the kitchen. Here, you will be greeted by a two-story wall of triple paned glass that allows your view and imagination to continue straight into a private backyard with basalt paving stone set into grass. The eat-in kitchen is double-height, open, and spacious, with ample room to prepare and enjoy a feast. Energy efficient Bosch appliances, custom cabinetry, and quartzite stone countertops will make cooking a delightful task.
At the center of house, find the white oak staircase with custom wood and steel steps and rails—an architectural feature around which the house orbits. Stand at its base, cast your gaze four stories straight up to the highest point, and you will begin to sense the home’s core structure: Arrayed around the central stair is an ascending series of rooms that lead you upward.
A quick skip up to the second floor, a cozy family room is open to the kitchen below—though your gaze may be drawn beyond it, through the glass back wall and into the backyard. Up another short flight, the first bedroom, with its spacious closet, is at the front of the house. One large and one small square window reflect the geometric motif that continues to play out. Across the room, a floor-to-ceiling window on an interior wall looks into the stairwell and allows light in from that side of the home as well.
A few steps up to the next floor, you’ll find a second bedroom at the back of the house, with a full en suite bath. A second full bath and laundry room prepared for electric washer and condensing dryer complete this floor. One short flight up, a third bedroom mirrors the first, with its square windows to the front and tall interior window.
Ascending to the third floor feels like popping through the cloud cover. Here, the master bedroom offers cinematic, sweeping views of downtown Brooklyn and its iconic clocktower to the East, and Manhattan and the Empire State Building to the West. This floor also offers an elegant and sophisticated en suite bath, double sinks, and ceramic tiling, additionally a walk-in closet.
And finally, at the home’s apex, you’ll discover a delightful surprise: a 300sf roof deck with sweeping Manhattan skyline views. For ease of entertaining, there is a wet bar with refrigerator, sink, and cabinets to house all the serving pieces you will need. All that’s missing are good friends and family to celebrate. Fourth of July, perhaps?
Set at the crossroads of Carroll Gardens and Red Hook, set along the waterfront bike and jogging path, The Carroll Street Townhomes are close to some of Brooklyn’s best restaurants, shops, and schools. Warm weekends can be spent at world class, Brooklyn Bridge Park, hop to Fairway for some of the city’s best grocery shopping and a quick bite on the deck with Lady Liberty. There is so much here. A perfect place to call home.
