REAL ESTATE ROUNDUP: Rare Carroll Gardens Opportunity
Q&A with REAL ESTATE ROUNDUP (RR), a popular column in Brooklyn Daily Eagle and Brooklyn Streetbeat, interviewing Joseph Aliotta, a leading broker for Daniel Gale Sotheby’s, International Realty, with three offices in Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Park Slope and Cobble Hill.
RR: There are few streets in Brownstone Brooklyn which feature homes with expansive front and backyards, and even more rare with a legal curb cut, two-car driveway and two-car attached garage. Would you describe the property at 18 1st Place in Carroll Gardens as a “once in a lifetime opportunity”?
ALIOTTA: What Daniel Gale Sotheby’s, International Realty is offering is a 29.2-foot wide massive 4,700 square-foot home in Carroll Gardens with a two-car driveway, two full-width terraces facing the historic tree-lined 1st Place, an indoor 220 square-foot garage with 12-foot ceilings and approximately 1,500 more buildable square footage able to be added to this already oversized home. This is the first time this house is for sale since it was custom-built for a large family in 1970.
So yes, I would describe this as a very rare opportunity.
RR: So why are you excited to talk about this property?
ALIOTTA: We are excited to offer perhaps the most unique property in Carroll Gardens. This could easily be considered a chance to create one of the most unique and convenient luxury living spots in the Carroll Gardens area.
Being a native Brooklynite and growing up in the Carroll Gardens area, I do not recall seeing an opportunity of this magnitude.
RR: Can you be more specific?
ALIOTTA: Sure. Whether you follow the direction of this architect’s rendering or bring in your own architect for your personal preferences to build a dream property on arguably the best block in Carroll Gardens, there is no doubt this is a unique and exceptional opportunity. No need to ever worry about looking for a parking spot, lugging groceries and packages for extended distances or having a raindrop or snowflake touch your new shoes as you pull into your heated, oversized, two-car garage.
RR: How can someone see all of the detail that exists at this property right now?
ALIOTTA: Showings are available by appointment only for qualified buyers by calling (718) 404-6839 to reach me directly, or visiting this link for photos and more information.
