On the border between Carroll Gardens and Gowanus, this sunshine-filled 1BR/1BA (top floor of a 3 unit townhouse) has hardwood floors, southern views overlooking the rear garden and plenty of natural light (including a skylight in the kitchen). The flexible floor plan configures any way you wish: combine your living and dining room areas at one end of the apartment and enjoy a large bedroom and separate office at the other end; or tuck away your queen-sized bed in the den/office and create a separate living room and dining room. The bathroom includes a stall shower and subway tile. There is also an extra-long (6') reach-in closet with ample shelf storage. Two blocks to the Carroll Street F stop, and near the best area restaurants: head west and enjoy the Smith and Court Streets restaurants including East One Brooklyn, Smith Canteen and Nightingale Nine; or head east and enjoy Threes Brewing, Insa, Ample Hills Creamery, and the Whole Foods dining terrace/bar overlooking the Gowanus Canal. You are also close to all the Gowanus activity clubs and event spaces: The Bell House, Shapeshifter Lab, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, Gotham Archery, Kick Axe Throwing and Brooklyn Boulders. This apartment is in the heart of it all but also a quiet escape from city living! July 5 move-in. Rent is $2450. Non-smoking building. Pets upon approval.
