    Stunning. At first I thought this street was in my hometown, Glasgow Scotland.

      This is in the Park Slope Historic District, so yes, there are preservation protections/requirements–down to having to use the appropriate bluestone when making repairs to the sidewalk in front of your house (which you are responsible for fixing). Also rigorous rules about any changes made to the exterior of your house.

      Only historic preservation protections in NY applies to what others can see from the outside. There is a 20% tax credit for any work done that is inside or outside if approved.

    I am a little confused about the layout because of the two-family home thing–is the second unit freestanding?– but I guess it doesn’t matter; the whole thing is fabulous and pretty much the only thing that would ever get me to live in the city (and if I had $$$$ of course).

      It says the smaller unit is a garden apartment, which would be the lowest floor. The entry is tucked under the front stoop to the main front door. I think they are called garden units because they open directly at ground level to the backyard, although I don’t see any rear doors on this one, maybe there’s a side door. The pictures of the garden unit appear to be mixed in with the main unit. I think the garden unit is the green chairs around the tree, blue couch, white range, and brick dining room.

        I wondered when I saw the stairs going down to the backyard from the larger (normally owner’s) unit whether the garden apartment even had backyard access. Even though “garden” is the name for the level, that doesn’t necessarily mean you get one.

          Years ago, one of my friends lived in the ground floor underneath the front porch of one of these brownstones. It was partially a basement with windows at ground level in the front of the apartment. I don’t recall what the back of the apartment was like.

          I remember reading about an apartment like this before. That one had windows that looked out onto the garden but no access. So I guess it’s “Look but don’t touch.”

    The listing states that this is a NYC landmark. If that is so then the outside can not be changed- but there are no regulations on the inside. NYC brownstones are highly sought after– all super pricey– no matter what neighborhood-

    Fabulous! Does anyone know, what kind of rent would be charged for this listing?

  6. AvatarLooley says: 33 comments

    I can’t imagine living in such a place. I can’t imagine selling it if I did. It’s very nice.

    Oh, the beautiful woodwork and wonderful parquetry flooring. Love the kitchen cupboards. Nice to see there is a small outdoor back terrace, would be wonderful to make it a beautiful garden setting. I wonder what the property taxes are? Although, I guess if you can afford 5 million+, taxes wouldn’t be a problem for the home owner.

    About $5,200,000 out of my range but always thought it would be ‘romantic’ to live in one of those rowhomes. Just beautiful

  9. AvatarPatty Moore-Amante says: 9 comments

    So beautiful!

    Sigggghhhh, well I GUESS it’ll do. 😉

  11. GypsyGypsy says: 130 comments

    Those floors and kitchen cabinets! I’m in love. Especially with the floors.

  12. AvatarAllyson says: 80 comments

    What a home. I’ve always wondered what a Brownstone look like inside. Now I guess I know 🙂

    My great grandfather lived at 649 Carroll St. according to the records I found. I often wondered what the inside of his house may have looked like.

  15. AvatarKen says: 54 comments

    My great grandfather was born in 1840 and was a part of the 14th Regiment who fought in the Second Manassas, according to the Eagle Tribune newspaper article, he had his left arm shot away. He worked in the registry of deeds and died around 1910. He was a captain in the national guard after the Civil War. He’s buried in Brooklyn. Thank-you for the information. I have it on my agenda to get to Brooklyn to do more research on my ancestors.

      Oh, I guess he lived there when it was just built, or fairly soon after—before many changes were made. That’s really cool. I hope you can find out more about him and your other ancestors.

    Twenty feet wide??? I’d have claustrophobia. Nice material on the inside though.
