Located on a quaint, treelined block in Prospect Heights, 593 Carlton Avenue is a magnificent 20’ wide townhome that boasts roughly 3300 square feet of interior living space and includes an expansive and meticulous ground floor apartment. This elegant two-family home is comprised of five bedrooms and three bathrooms spanning four floors as well as additional storage space on the cellar level. Completely renovated in 2012 with new electrical and plumbing. The home was renovated to restore original solid walnut doors and moldings as well as the staircase. It was designed with the utmost elegance and is truly an exemplar of contemporary Brooklyn charm. The original solid walnut banister is the centerpiece of the entry foyer, which has plenty of space for coats and shoes and welcomes guests into the parlour level of the home. To the left is a spacious great room with floor-to-ceiling windows that naturally light the entire space. Soaring 12 feet ceilings throughout, the great room spills over into the large dining room which can serve as an ideal gathering spot for guests. The airy eat-in-kitchen – with a massive wooden island serving as the centerpiece of the room – ties together the main floor and is adorned with new appliances including Wolf range, Bosch dishwasher, and top-of-the-line Samsung refrigerator and freezer. The kitchen will be receiving new marble countertops, but interested buyers also have the opportunity to make the kitchen their own. From the kitchen, we are led outdoors into a magical, artfully designed garden. Here you are greeted by a young lilac bush, perennial geraniums, forsythias, Japanese Maples, and more. An entertainer’s dream, the gorgeous landscaping is of unmatched exclusivity, enclosed by a custom-built brick backdrop, a modern cedar fence and Ipe deck and full of breathtaking foliage. The remainder of the triplex currently features four generously sized bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a LG heavy-duty washer and dryer, numerous walk-in closets, restored stone fireplaces in every room, and two spacious alcoves. Special features include Hansgrohe shower fixtures, Toto toilets, an Acryline Bath tub, Bespoke medicine cabinets, original Red Oak flooring, and a large skylight for additional natural light on the fourth floor.
The spacious garden level of this stunning Brownstone has a separate entrance and is completed with an eat in kitchen, mud room, walk-in closet, full bathroom, and open-concept living area and can be used as a rental. The cellar provides plenty of storage space and is easily accessible from the main portion of the home.
593 Carlton Ave is located in a prime area of Prospect Heights and nestled among everything the neighborhood has to offer – delicious restaurants, trendy shops, Barclays Center, and convenient transportation. Express Q and B, A, C, 2, 3 subway lines are minutes away and Atlantic Center is a short trip for further easy commuting. This restored masterpiece is in close proximity to Park Slope, Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Library, and the Botanical Gardens.
