There’s a one-of-a-kind townhome up for sale in Brooklyn’s posh Carroll Gardens neighborhood.

Marketed by Lindsay Barton Barrett, Christina Abad, and Cristina Criado with Douglas Elliman, the stunning home is asking $5,450,000, and it offers both classic touches and modern-day amenities.

Located at 356 Sackett Street, flanked by Court and Smith streets, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom townhouse was recently thoroughly renovated.

Architects were able to preserve the property’s original details, such as tin ceilings, marble fireplace surrounds and ornate moldings, and more. However, the gut renovation also brought contemporary upgrades to please the modern homebuyer.

Domino and Refinery29 have even featured the mint-condition, 22-foot-wide showplace for their readers.

The home’s parlor level features formal living spaces ideal for entertaining friends and family.

A foyer opens up to a light-filled living room that’s paved in wide-plank hardwood and features 11-foot high ceilings. There’s also a grand dining room with painted tin ceilings, a fireplace, and designer lighting.

The parlor level also includes a state-of-the-art kitchen that features premium stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner, fully vented Wolf range, a drawer microwave, a dishwasher, and even a wine refrigerator.

Last but not least, this level also includes a powder room and coat closet for ‘effortless entertaining.’

Outside the kitchen, you’ll find a small deck that leads out into the lush garden that is decked out with large bluestone pavers, private fencing and professional landscaping. 

The garden level of this Carroll Gardens townhome features a living room with a wet bar/kitchenette and a bright sunroom, which currently serves as a gym overlooking the garden. 

The third floor houses the master suite, which offers garden views, a spa bath with a clawfoot tub, and a frameless glass shower. Here, you also get a spacious walk-in closet, and an adjoining bedroom that would make an ideal nursery, study or home office. 

That’s not it, though. There are three additional bedrooms above the master suite, complete with a playroom/den, as well as another bathroom and a large laundry room.

Last but not least, the basement level provides 8-foot ceilings and a massive storage closet, as well as a huge flexible rec room.
