It’s Free to Look: 778 Carroll Street

When it sold for $1.5 million in 2007, this 1920s Carroll Street townhouse stood completely gutted. Now, thanks to a major renovation, everything new looks old again.

Recently put on the market for $3.35 million, this "feast for the eyes," as the Corcoran listing calls it, has undergone some major improvements. On the outside, this limestone and brick classic at 778 Carroll Street is as stately as when neighbors strolled by in bowlers and pearls. Inside, the wood-paneled entrance is convincing as a Jazz Age creation, as are the seven fireplaces, hardwood floors and ample range of moldings.

The reno also added some more modern touches, such as a sleek, 9-foot buffet and huge rooftop terrace, not to mention modern heating and air-conditioning. The charm may not be original, but at least imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. —Laura Kusisto
