Classic Carroll Gardens 2-Family: 42 4th Place

42 4th Place is an unmistakably great house. Who doesn't want a 21' wide double-duplex brick home with a big front and backyard on a tree-lined quiet street in Carroll Gardens?

Inside you get exposed brick, nice floors, crown moldings, and a few dated fixtures. We imagine any buyer in this price range would want to bring the place up to date a bit, which wouldn't be hard at all.

Despite some cosmetic updating, this house belongs among the best in a neighborhood where $2-3M isn't unheard of. Do we see $1.865M over here? A few doors around the corner, the dinkier, workable 511 Clinton Street closed last fall for $1.17M after having a once-upon-a-time contract north of $1.5M. And make sure to check out the other activity on 4th Place. If you don't need a yard and you want it modern out of the box, check out 536 Court Street.

Pro's: size, yard, block, Carroll Gardens, totally turnkey, double duplex, 4 baths

Con's: pricey, could use some cosmetic updating

Ideally: we agree this belongs on the must see list for some. Lots of house, but lots of equity too...
