With mortgage and monthlies* around the price of renting, this duplex with a sun-filled private yard is the perfect starter home or investment apartment in coveted Carroll Gardens. Originally set up as a 1 bedroom with a recreation room below, the owner thoughtfully removed the wall in the living room and reconfigured the kitchen to create a more modern, functional, and open living-dining space on the main level. Spiral stairs lead down to a spacious windowed recreation room currently used as a sleeping space with an oversized half bath and vented washer-dryer. Walls can be added to create one or two bedrooms on the main level.**
This condominium is located at 202 West 9th Street in Carroll Gardens, at the crossroads of Red Hook and South Park Slope so you can take advantage of the best of three of the most sought after neighborhoods in Brooklyn for foodies. The G and F trains are less than a block away for easy transfers to any train line you need and Manhattan is only 5 stops away. The famed Buttermilk Channel and Frankies 457 Spuntino are practically at your door step along with an abundance of other incredible restaurants, bars, cafes, boutiques, and gourmet markets. Whole Foods is just under a mile away and IKEA is just over a mile away. The NYC ferry is a mile away and the Red Hook recreation center, where you can enjoy summer swimming, is only half a mile away.
