Gowanus-y "2-Family": 452 Sackett Street

The listing for 452 Sackett claims "Country in the City". This legal 2-Family (used a 1) looks great on the outside, has a yard, wide plank floors, and the only full bathroom sure looks cute:

But it's priced a little high for 16' x 35', or over $750/sqft at the current list price of $1.295M. That pricing isn't too crazy for Carroll Gardens, but this location is a little too Gowanus-y to charge that much. A close neighbor, 444 Sackett, was almost identical and listed for $1.15M for just about a month and a half. It makes us miss 473 Union Street.

We have to give them credit for a legit listing with a floor-plan, transperancy regarding the 2-Family vs Single-Family status, pictures, and an open house last weekend. Someone's gonna nibble, but we see a lower price making it happen.

Pro's: curb appeal, interior, backyard, mantles & exposed brick

Con's: small, used a Single Family, teenie-tiny kitchen area, Gowanus-y

Ideally: 10% off would still be too high for us, but probably not for somebody else.
