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.
