162 Luquer Street is a classic brick townhouse situated on a quintessential tree-lined street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. This delightful two-family, four-story townhouse has been lovingly cared for and updated over the course of the last 30 years, with a full renovation of the owner's duplex ten years ago. Additions include full soundproofing between the duplexes and a new I-beam to maintain structural integrity.
The home features a blend of modern conveniences without sacrificing the character and charm that has made Carroll Gardens one of the most sought-after neighborhoods to reside in Brooklyn.
The owner's duplex is replete with an expansive chef's kitchen that includes a breakfast nook and gas fireplace. The parlor level provides ample room for formal dining and entertaining areas. Off the parlor is a lovely tiled deck that leads to a landscaped south-facing garden. The owner's duplex offers two sizable bedrooms (2BR) on the lower level as well as two full bathrooms (2Bath) and a laundry area with W/D.
The upper duplex encompasses a two-bedroom (2BR), two-bathroom (2Bath) apartment that features a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and hardwood flooring. The flexible floor plan would easily allow a conversion to a single-family home or a triplex over a garden rental.
162 Luquer Street is surrounded by the classic serenity of Brooklyn brownstones and the energy of a culturally diverse community with superb dining, craft cocktail bars, homemade marketplaces, and destination hangouts. Local favorites include Frankie's 457 Spuntino, Buttermilk Channel, Ugly Baby, Prime Meats, Court Street Grocers, Caputo's, Cobble Hill Cinemas, and St. Marie's Park. This property is conveniently located a few blocks from the F/G stop at Carroll Street, with easy access throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Long Island City.
