- Gut Renovated-Brownstone Now Four 2-Bedroom/2-Bath Homes –


NEW YORK – September 7, 2012 – Realty Collective introduced 118 President Street to the market today, giving only four buyers the opportunity to own a luxury, gut-renovated two-bedroom/two-bathroom condo unit in a classic Carroll Gardens’ Columbia Waterfront district brownstone.


The residences are the perfect blend of classic and modern, with high ceilings, open kitchens, exposed brick, washer/dryer, dishwasher and central air/heat. Each of the four units has private outdoor space and a separate storage unit in the basement. 


Situated on a tree-lined street, 118 President Street’s gut renovation was completed as the summer concluded, while one unit was staged Realty Collective, which chose to fulfill the team’s design aesthetic vision for the units with pieces by Red Hook-based Pickett Furniture,, including the designer’s BRANN Tripod Floor Lamp, OND Bench, DJEVEL Dresser, FORBANNELSE Chair, TRYLLE Side Table and HELVETE Table, all of which are available separately for sale. Realty Collective chose art for the staged unit from works by local Brooklyn photographer Carolina Salguero,, including her own large-format photography and artifacts from cultural non-profit PortSide NewYork, based on oil tanker Mary A. Whalen in Red Hook.


“Working with a Brooklyn artist, furniture designer and cultural non-profit fits squarely in Realty Collective’s mission to represent not only buyers, sellers and renters, but also the local community of businesses and individuals that make the neighborhoods of Brooklyn the cultural mecca that we seek to form our home and workplace,” said Victoria Hagman, President, Realty Collective.


Realty Collective chose to work with Pickett Furniture both for the designer’s Red Hook address, but more importantly for how the design aesthetic aligned with how they envisioned life could unfold in the new residences. “We are excited to include Pickett Furniture’s work in the model apartment. Jeremy Pickett's designs are a perfect match for the 118 President aesthetic: modern and clean, but with a bold elemental quality. We love the way these solid wood pieces work with the exposed brick, oak floors, and fireplaces,” says Tina Fallon, a Realty Collective agent representing the 118 President units.


“Throughout our planning with the developers we have focused on what people buyers love about Brooklyn. These condos have it all: high ceilings, spacious rooms, fireplaces, outdoor space - all in a classic townhouse on a quiet, tree-lined block. Of course they have the requisite two bedroom/two bath/laundry room as well, while feeling unique. It's the details that count here: custom white kitchens with Liebherr refrigerators and Bertazzoni ranges, clever storage and large closets, a private storage space in the basement for each unit,” adds Fallon.


The 100-year brownstone was gut renovated in 2012 into the four 2BR/2BTH condos of more than 1,000 square feet each, with working fireplaces, over sized kitchens with white Caesarstone counter tops and under counter lighting, and priced between $799,000 and $1,295,000. For further information:
