Twyford Real Estate takes pride in our first-hand knowledge of the community. We understand what is important to Carroll Gardens residents because we are Carroll Gardens residents! This small business is owned and operated only by those of the local neighborhood. We are able to relate to all variations of “Brooklyn-ites”—whether this be a family whose property has been passed on for several generations, or a young couple looking to join the Carroll Gardens community for the first time! Twyford Real Estate envisions itself as a business that instills respect in every decision because we are dedicated to the progression and preservation of our community.


Court Street in Brooklyn is full of life, ranging from restaurants, to boutiques, salons, local markets, pharmacies and more. Family-run establishments run the neighborhood and have been in business for over half a century. This quintessential street only adds to Carroll Gardens Charm, making it one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of New York City.


Carroll Gardens has a great mix of family-run restaurants that have been around for decades and up and coming hip brunch spots, bars and five start restaurants. Restaurant guides can be partial, but Twyford Real Estate will give you the local low-down.

Night Caps


Public transportation in Carroll Gardens is very accessible, with a trip to midtown Manhattan taking about 30 minutes time. Commuters hang out at the corner of Smith Street and 2nd Street, coffee in hand, to watch the F and G trains roll in above-ground, and scurry down the stairs to catch the train. It is also possible to own a car-  if you can navigate the street parking. Ask us for tips and hacks.


Driving Access – With the BQE and Battery Tunnel just 5 minutes and the Brooklyn Bridge less than 10 min away, access to major roads or the city is easy.


Carroll Gardens is primarily a residential community steeped in traditional working class values. It derives a rich heritage from a wave of Italian immigration that occurred in the earlier part of the twentieth century. Smith and Court Streets possess both the traditional smaller “Mom and Pop” stores and more specialized businesses that reflect a combination of the old flavor of European tastes with the newly settled elements of young urban professionals that continue to flock to the neighborhood.

Public Parks – Carroll Park is a neighborhood staple and where locals meet up for community activities. There is also Cobble Hill Park and Coffee Park in Red Hook in just .6 miles away.
