To step inside this townhouse estate at 838 Carroll Street is to be transported into the past while enjoying todays state-of-the-art amenities. In 1888, New York high society enjoyed living and entertaining in opulent style in this 32 wide mansion known as Remington House, a short walk from the grand and, at that time, recently created Prospect Park. Along with many of Park Slopes most significant homes, this Romanesque Revival was designed by C.P.H Gilbert and bears many of his design hallmarks.

However, this home stands alone as Gilberts only house whose entire faade is made of ashlar cut brownstone and no brick. With the full-height round tower, its as imposing as a medieval rampart. That is until you walk inside when the warm wood tones and wood burning fireplace of the entrance foyer welcome you into this unique and sprawling home.

Today, this stunningly restored estate stands as a testament to the quality, scale, and craftsmanship of 19th-century construction. On every level and room, the grandeur of the past is on full display. From the exquisite decorative plaster-work, intricately carved woodwork, and original mahogany-inlaid oak floors, every gorgeous detail of this historic home have been returned to its original splendor.

Of course, when you take a closer look, you will see that equal attention has been paid to intelligently engineering this home for modern living. Central air conditioning has been added throughout the home. All marble and stone tile floors feature radiant heat, a smart home security system featuring five cameras with remote viewing and brand new windows, electrical wiring, roofing, plumbing, and mechanicals.

The homes palatial 8,200 square feet offers endless flexibility and is currently configured as 2-Family home - a quadruplex with 6/7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms with a separate 2 bedroom, 2 bath staff or guest quarters on the garden level. While the gracious scale of the open living areas on the first two floors is stylish and comfortable, the heart of the home is the full floor master suite. Enter this well-appointed luxury space which includes four fireplaces, a private sitting room, an office, a custom walk-through dressing area, and an incredible master bath clad in Calacatta Gold Marble, a cast iron soaking tub, and a steam shower, and you may never want to leave.The thoughtfully designed and equipped kitchen has a built in dining banquette, six-burner Wolf Range and hood, built- in wine storage and the kitchen features its own fireplace and powder room.

The private backyard garden has a century-old stone wall and brand new cedar fencing. All showings are by appointment only.
