This pristine and beautifully restored 4-story brownstone, featured in the 2017 Park Slope House Tour, is located less than two blocks from Prospect Park, and just around the corner from the much sought after PS 321. Surrounded by vibrant shops, restaurants, café's and markets, this 6-bedroom, 5.5-bath home is not to be missed.
Combining modern comforts with classic design, this impeccably restored home features original details such as hardwood flooring, beautiful oak fireplace mantles, crown molding, and oak wainscoting while at the same time coexisting with modern upgrades such as central A/C, thermal argon windows, and a new copper-plumbing technology that brings instant-hot water to bathroom pipes on all four floors. The hot water heater and gas boiler are also new as is the newly restored front stoop.
The parlor floor is anchored by a center-staircase with original oak spindles and balusters. A domed roof skylight allows natural light to filter in, illuminating the center stairwell with a soft glow. The main living room has floor-to-ceiling mahogany pier mirrors, fretwork and original parquet floors. A powder room, dining foyer, and expansive middle sitting room provide the kind of flexibility you will need as a host of a cozy sit-down dinner for 10 or cocktails for 40. Entertain all-year, all-season with a bi-level outdoor space that includes two new large, Ipe Brazilian walnut decks. Just off the recently updated eat-in kitchen is a sitting area and dining space for six. A graceful iron staircase leads below to a tranquil Japanese Zen garden featuring a pond and cascading waterfall and another finished deck space that runs the width of the house.
Divided between the top two floors are four equally-proportioned bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite, and the fourth comes with its own large private bath that features a deep soaking tub. Below the triplex is a beautiful 2 bedroom garden-level unit, currently being used as a high-income rental. It comes with its own private entrance, a spacious and charming living room, full and updated kitchen, full bathroom, brand-new W/D, and a large bedroom with two windows facing the garden. Conversion to a single-family home can be completed with ease.
As if all this were not enough, a mature double-flowering Kwanzan cherry tree stands tall at the center of a landscaped front garden, its gracious limbs festooned with beautiful cherry blossoms each April for your own private Sakura moment.
