Introducing a classic, turn of the century detail filled single family brownstone, ideally located in central Park Slope. This classic and well-maintained home on a beautiful tree lined street is the epitome of classic townhome living. Lovingly maintained, it offers comfortable living, modern amenities, gracious entertaining spaces, and a serene private garden with mature tree and plantings. All of this in a home that magnificently evokes the history and charm of this lovely and quiet tree lined block and its rows of turn of the century private homes.
Up the private stoop and through the period correct front doors brings you to the formal parlor level, with inlaid hand nailed floors. The split parlor offers a decorative fireplace in each room, high ceilings, wooden pocket doors, and two chandeliers with ornate medallions. Other turn of the century details include correct ceiling moldings, decorative window cornices and original concealed wooden shutters, which repeat throughout the entire home. The first floor full bath is filled with light from an oversized window overlooking the planted garden.
Down the stairway with curved bannister brings you to the first floor garden level with its own entrance. Here you’ll find a more casual sitting area, warm and inviting, with a decorative fireplace and a wooden column detail. The chef’s kitchen with Wolf four burner range, stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator as well as a Williams Sonoma re-purposed antique kitchen island face another decorative fireplace and work area. Windows and a door open out onto the dining deck with covered pergola and steps leading down into the private garden. With a mature tree, plantings and stone walkways, the private garden is a great space for relaxing and entertaining. There is a grill for outdoor cooking.
The top floor is bright and lovely with southern open sky and treetop views, and a northern exposure over gardens and brownstone rooflines. The master suite with arch detail and decorative fireplace has a chandelier, ceiling fan and room for a comfortable sitting area. The second bedroom in Tiffany blue oozes charm. A third room on this floor would work well as a nursery, home office or walk in closet and dressing room. There are three skylights bringing light into the middle of the home, one stained glass and centered over the stairway.
The basement level is perfect for storage, and there is a full sized side-by-side washer and dryer.
Additional FAR is available and could be used to create a rear extension.
You are moments from Prospect Park, multiple subway lines, wonderful restaurants, shopping, Whole Foods and the Greenmarket. A bi-annual block party has been a tradition on this block for two generations.
