When you enter through the front door at 155 Nelson, the entryway greets you with a classic black and white tile foyer area with Ralph Lauren lighting and oversized walk-in closet for all of your storage needs (coats, shoes, sporting equipment, two bike racks etc).
As you ascend the stairs onto the main floor, you're immediately greeted with a comforting tableau of a fireplace and bookshelves, which makes for a quaint and cozy sitting room or gallery. The main living room is also located on this floor, which hosts large windows allowing for ample light to fill the space, especially in the mornings. The corner of the room is set up for a small banquette and table overlooking the street.
A large, open dining room and beautiful chef's dream kitchen have been tastefully appointed with top-of-the-line Wolfe and SubZero appliances, white marble countertops, and newly installed fixtures that complement the rest of the townhome perfectly. Additionally on this level, off the kitchen, there are oversized windows and double French doors opening out onto the private terrace, perfect for entertaining during the spring or summer. Japanese maple tree and honeysuckle climb around the railings and English ivy covers the walls, creating an aesthetically pleasing space.
The third floor hosts a wing layout consisting of the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet to the right, and generously sized second bedroom with ample closet space and additional bathroom to the left. The master bathroom features white marble countertops, dual sinks, glass enclosed shower and soaking tub. The master bedroom has a balcony with a white pine tree, wisteria and a dogwood tree overlooking the neighboring gardens. Thanks to the enclosed garden at the rear, the master bedroom is very quiet at all times.
One flight up is the top indoor level for a sun-flooded media room/additional living space/loft-like bedroom that is bright and airy, where you have an additional outdoor terrace on both the front and rear sides of the building. Both are landscaped and zen-like. This floor also features a full bathroom.
On the very top floor, there's yet another outdoor terrace with pristine outdoor kitchen (refrigerator, sink, built-in grill), an additional sitting area shaded by a large pergola and with views of the financial district in Manhattan. There is beautiful Wisteria that covers the pergola in flowers twice during the summertime, and gorgeous greenery that fills the roof deck.
The roof deck also offers views down to Red Hook and the New York harbor over Buttermilk Channel. The F train is visible in the distance as it travels past the rooftops of Brooklyn, as well as the spire of the church of St Mary, Star of the Sea (the church in which Al Capone was married!). Additionally, according to YIMBY.com, newly revealed renderings show an exciting future for the Gowanus Canal waterfront and surrounding streetscape along Carroll Street, just a stone's throw away from 155 Nelson, including a drastically reinvigorated public thoroughfare with open green spaces, recreational boating, new benches, and a winding esplanade.
This townhome offers a spacious duplex on the garden level, making it an amazing investment opportunity as well. There is a current tenant in place until November 30, 2022.
In this 2 bed + home office, 2 bath duplex, the open-plan living & dining area is complete with a beautiful chef's kitchen and has been tastefully appointed with top-of-the-line fixtures, white marble countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The fantastic full garden off the living room completes the picture with oversized windows, allowing tenants to enjoy indoor/outdoor living and dining. Down one flight of stairs, the oversized master bedroom with an enormous en-suite home office is the perfect work from home setup. The generously sized second bedroom with ample closet space is just down the hall with a large lovely bathroom.
Located on a quiet, tree lined street in Carroll Gardens, 155 Nelson is easily accessed with all the services you will need on the same block. Here you can find numerous cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques and grocery stores. Public transportation is five minutes away and will to take you quickly to downtown Manhattan (F Train) or anywhere else in Brooklyn (G Train). It is also in close proximity to several parks, including Admiral Triangle Park, St. Mary's Playground, Carroll Park and Prospect Park. Local favorite eateries include Court Street Grocers, Lucali, Frankies 457, Franks Wine Bar, Ugly Baby, and the brand-new Baby Luc's Pizza.
