Description

Introducing 46 1st Place, a stunning 19th century brownstone located in prime Carroll Gardens on sought-after 1st Place. This immaculate and rare 24' wide home is in excellent condition and is replete with historic architectural details. Four expansive stories on a 24x100 lot, this 5,040 square foot home features a cellar with an additional 1,080sf, front and rear gardens, a deck off the parlor floor kitchen, and a 24x15 terrace off the third floor.

A legal four family, this mansion is currently used as an impeccably maintained duplex with two rentals. The garden and parlor levels of this home span an incredible 24' of width by 60' depth, offering approximately 2,500sf for the owner's duplex with front garden, rear private, south garden with mature plantings and a deck accessing the garden with a spiral staircase. The property can be converted to a single family with ease, maintained as an owner's duplex with two high income-producing rentals, or a triplex with a ground floor rental or for au pair use.

The cellar provides ample space for laundry and storage and can be transformed into a media, recreation room, gym, wine storage, or more. A roof garden would command outstanding views of Manhattan.

Accessed off the foyer with its parquet floors and mahogany bannister, the living room and dining room of the duplex, with its original Corinthian columns, a working fireplace and 12-foot ceilings, is a sight to be seen.

There is an abundance of majestic ambience with French doors leading to a glass-walled bright kitchen overlooking the deck and lush garden.

An 1850s article in the Brooklyn Eagle aptly sums up how special the block and location truly is:

"First Place - the high and rolling ground known of old as Bergen Hill, which overlooks Gowanus Bay and New York Bay, and takes the sweep of the clear ocean breeze, has been laid off into blocks of more than ordinary depth, for the building of mansions for the rich, and is likely to become the court end of the city. A number of splendid buildings with deep court yards in front, and built of brown stone, have already been erected, and preparations are in progress for more.

The streets intersect Court Street, and are called Places, to distinguish them from the vulgar herd of common streets. The aristocracy of wealth have at last shown their good sense in seizing on, and appropriating this splendid location."

Lovingly cared for by its current owner for decades, this exquisite home, with its close proximity to the best restaurants, shops, F&G lines and Carroll Park, awaits its next chapter.
