Nestled in the beloved and highly coveted Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope, 596 2nd street has everything you would want in a beautiful, historic Park Slope town house. Literally steps away from Prospect Park and on the same block that President Obama resided after he graduated from Columbia University. Built in 1901, this beautiful townhouse has only had two owners and has kept most of its original detail and beauty; from the custom wood finishes that were built with the house to the original light sconces. Most of this home still has the original fooring and built in storage compartments throughout.There are a total of six gas fireplaces that continue to be the focal point of the large rooms that they occupy. The current configuration is a double duplex. The owner's duplex is currently upstairs while the renters duplex is downstairs. The owner's duplex consists of 3 large bedrooms and 1 small bedroom (that can be used as a guest room or easily be converted into a closet, office, or art studio); the owners duplex also consists of a large living room, eat in kitchen, and a bathroom. The rental duplex consists of 2 large bedrooms (convertible 3), 2 bathrooms, an eat in kitchen, large living room, and access to a quaint garden. Both units have washers and dryers, dishwashers and tons of built in storage. The tenants are moving at the end of May so this house will be delivered completely vacant at the completion of the sale. This home is in move in ready condition if you appreciate the classically beautiful original details, but it can also be transformed with little effort and expense into a more contemporary home if that is more of your aesthetic. Make this large beautiful townhouse in this highly coveted, historically quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood the home of your dreams. Currently zoned for PS 321
