Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses on the market. Got tips? Send 'em here.
↑ Renovated carriage houses aren’t an uncommon sight in Brooklyn Heights, though the price tag on this Columbia Heights house—$9.9 million—is certainly higher than we typically see. So what makes it a $10 million home? It was built in the 1860s, but has since gotten an extensive, modern revamp; there are four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a roof deck, a three-car garage, and myriad other fancy attributes. The house itself is also a little charmer. [Floorplan]
↑ This isn’t the first time this Park Slope stunner, built by C.P.H. Gilbert in 1888, has been on the market; it listed last year for a whopping $15 million, but has since gotten a fairly substantial price chop to $9.995 million. It has 13 (!) wood-burning fireplaces, a full-floor master suite with steam shower, a large kitchen, an outdoor space that was recently planted with cypress trees, and tons of closet space. And tons of the original details remain: the ornate wooden staircase, plaster ceilings, fireplaces, and moldings are all original, and were restored from their original 19th-century glory.

↑ This week’s theme seems to be 19th-century homes; this Carroll Gardens townhouse, asking $2.65 million, also dates back to the 1880s. It’s configured as a two-family, and has been owned by the same family for the past 35 years. While it could use some updates, the bones are there: It has lovely decorative details (including crown moldings and marble fireplace mantels), high ceilings, and a backyard. [Floorplan]
↑ And now for something completely different: in Midwood, this two-story house with a finished basement is asking $895,000. It’s another one that would need some work—the listing says it’s the first time on the market, so it’s likely been owned by the same family for some time—but it’s cute, a nice size, and asking less than $1 million.
