Situated on a quiet, quintessential Carroll Gardens block, 21 1st Street presents the rare opportunity to live in an exquisitely gut-renovated, 3-story (plus basement) single-family townhouse in perfect move-in condition. Here, meticulous and refined attention to detail is evident in every room. Re-envisioned in 2016, this light-flooded 1910 Federal style townhouse features a large primary bedroom with private terrace overlooking the garden and marble mantle wood-burning fireplace, two generously sized secondary bedrooms, a large, bright parlor floor office/sitting room (previously a 4th bedroom), 2.5 bathrooms, and a dry unfinished basement with washer/dryer and copious storage which offers a blank canvas to create a bonus space to suit your needs.

Lovingly restored original details throughout, including soaring beamed ceilings, ceiling medallions, refinished staircases and wide-plank floors that have been stripped and refinished in a light Scandinavian-inspired hue, are seamlessly integrated to create a bespoke contemporary aesthetic. In the garden level living room, a wall of custom-fabricated windows and a large overhead skylight fills the room with brilliant light; enjoy views and seamless access to your beautiful garden and yard through the wall of steel-framed glass. The custom-designed chef's kitchen is bright and white, with reclaimed wood shelving, a subway-tiled backsplash, a Carrera marble waterfall island, custom cabinetry and Wolf and Bosch appliances. The nearby dining room has a Lambert & Fils fixture, while the Powder Room features exposed brick walls painted in Farrow & Ball Peignor and a Geberit wall-hung toilet.

On the Parlor level, a Michael Anastassiades for Flos pendant light hangs from an original ceiling medallion, welcoming you into the open, bright office/sitting room (previously a fourth bedroom). The primary bedroom features a Serge Mouille-inspired light fixture and white brick and marble fireplace, as well as a private terrace with a view of surrounding historic Carroll Gardens. The ensuite bath is large and thoughtfully designed, with a Duravit trough sink and walnut vanity, oversized glass-enclosed shower, Kohler Purist brass fixtures, subway tiles in a custom herringbone pattern and radiant heat flooring.

On the top floor are the oversized, bright second and third bedrooms, both with soaring, original wood-beamed ceilings, custom LED lighting, Modern Fan Company ceiling fans and custom closets, as well as a full bathroom with skylight and Jacuzzi tub. On a quiet block known for its warmth and charm, perfectly situated just a few blocks from Whole Foods, the Carroll Street F/G train, Carroll Park, the restaurants and markets of Court, Smith Street and the Gowanus, the location could not be better. Your search is over for the perfectly renovated family home in the ideal location.
