As Brooklyn jumps on the radar of an ever-growing number of developers and buyers, there can seem to be a false dilemma of embracing either the historic townhouses of yesteryear or the sleek new construction taking shape all over the borough. 88 Remsen Street would appear to offer the best of both worlds: While the townhouse and carriage house have been renovated to the standards of today's buyers, none of the changes came at the expense of its classic architectural details like crown moldings, fireplace mantels, and inlaid floors.
The main house is currently configured as a parlor quadruplex with a garden-level rental. The quadruplex features a parlor with 12' ceilings, a custom kitchen opening up to a private terrace, a massive primary suite with sitting area and two baths, a south-facing home office, and a private roof deck. The garden rental is no slouch, either, with a massive kitchen opening up to a private back garden, a large living area, and a finished rec room/screening room.

The carriage house adjoins the back garden of the townhouse, and its upper level has been updated to feature a loft-like one-bedroom apartment with a contemporary kitchen and bath. Its basement level houses a grotto-like screening room, half-bath, and separate rain shower lit by a stained glass ceiling under part of the townhouse's private garden.
88 Remsen Street was originally listed for $18 million in September 2019, but would nevertheless be one of Brooklyn's highest priced sales if it gets its current asking price of $15 million. It is one of 161 listings throughout New York City that experienced price cuts over the past seven days, and a full, sortable chart may be found below.
