78 2nd Place, Carroll Gardens: Four-Family Brownstone on Tree-Lined Residential Street

78 2nd Pl Floor Plan

Floor Plan, 78 2nd Place, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY


Carroll Gardens, an historic area directly south of Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill, is known for tree-lined streets with beautiful brownstones, easy commuting to Manhattan, and fabulous food and shopping scenes. 78 2nd Place is the essence of Carroll Gardens, situated between Court and Clinton Streets on a residential block with deep front gardens.

Currently, 78 2nd Place is configured as a four-family property with four spectacularly large, one-bedroom apartments with dens. Among the many things for which brownstones are known, spacious rooms, soaring ceilings, ornate moldings and mantles are some of the most notable. 78 2nd Place not only embodies all of those qualities, but is also a 25-foot wide home, an uncommon and desirable feature for buildings in the area.

For the owner-occupant (“user”), options range from keeping the building as a four-family to transforming the property into a stunning single or two-family residence. As the home is already a legal, four-family property, the property is also poised to be a jewel in an investor’s crown. For users and investors alike, the already great value that comes with all apartments being free-market (not stabilized or controlled) is amplified by recent changes.

479 Henry Street, Cobble Hill: Federalist Townhouse in Beautiful Landmark Brooklyn Neighborhood


Exterior 479 Hnery St.

Located at the junction of Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill, 479 Henry Street is a meticulously maintained, Federalist-style townhouse. As part of the Cobble Hill Historic District, which is recognized both municipally and federally, the property affords a buyer with the opportunity to blend historic and modern, and create a unique dream home.

The history of 479 Henry Street begins in c. 1844, when Jacob Frost commissioned the development of a series of homes and enlisted then-local carpenter and builder, Richard Whipple, to erect them. After their construction, all the homes in the series bore adornments harking to the Greek Revival style. Over one and one-half centuries later, 479 Henry Street is one of the few to have the original, Greek-fret ironwork intact.

Today, the four-family home has over 4,000 sq. ft. of livable space on a 2,200 sq. ft. lot (22’ x 100’) and is comprised of a total of seven unattached bedrooms and four full bathrooms. The lower three levels are expanded upon, adding additional living space to each apartment. The garden and parlor apartments both connect to the split-level rear-garden, which has an upper and lower patio, with a large yard between them.

Breezy Point Bungalow for Sale

29 Doris Lane 750W

This four-season home in Breezy Point can be lived in year round or used as as a summer home minutes from the beach.


Finally, your little piece of heaven can be bought in the form of this storybook bungalow in Breezy. Peace and joy emanate from this beach house that was lovingly renovated after Sandy. The living space is airy and flows into the kitchen, eating area, and glassed enclosed porch.

The porch, of course, is the epicenter of summer entertaining – think corn on the cob and burgers in your bathing suit with family and friends. The pictures show the beauty of the house, but they can’t warm you with the magic of the summer light. They can’t give you the sense memory of an ocean breeze and suntan lotion, and they can’t give you the delight of watching your sun-tanned neighbors from your shaded porch as they come off the beach.

Breezy is its own wonderful world, and summer in Breezy is that unflappable, intractable memory that stays in your heart forever. This bungalow is in a great location! It’s close to Kennedy’s and only 5 minutes to the Sugar Bowl and the beach. Shopping, church, and the tennis courts are moments away.

Summer is coming and this classic bungalow in this magical place will be scooped up in a real estate minute. Viewings are by appointment only. The co-op details are available upon request.
