The work of architectural tour de force P.C.H. Gilbert, this distinctive and commanding 1889 mansion stands perched in the center of prime Slope. Late 19th-century detail meets 2020 sensibilities. Its 5,874 square foot interior has been artfully reinterpreted so as to celebrate today's consciousness. Throughout we re adorned with reclaimed tiles from European villas and churches and enveloped in contemporary hand-sculpted plaster walls that have been tinted with natural pigments. From the parlor floor s entry foyer, we re welcomed into the stunning living room with an impressive marble fireplace, fresh-take on crown moldings, and sun-filled bay window tall, tan, and handsome. We can proceed through the lovely piano room, with an adjacent powder room and on into the stately dining room clad in restored mahogany paneling and fabulous leaded glass windows. The contemporary eat-in chef's kitchen is crafted to entertain. Here a 19th century reclaimed European encaustic tile floor is complemented by graceful wood cabinetry, Danby marble counters, and recycled glass tile backsplash. The stainless appliances are by Wolf and Sub-Zero. From there, glass doors invite us out to the deck. It s one flight up to retire to your master bedroom, with its gas fireplace, walk-in closet, home office, and a full bath decked-out in limestone and century-old reclaimed European encaustic tiles. There s a flexible front room with a handsome bay window and a convenient half-bath. A laundry closet adds to your convenience. The third level has a generous bright den, along with its two bedrooms and a walk-in closet. A full bath is styled with handmade Moroccan floor tiles and there is a Wetstyle soaking tub and Robern glass vanity. On the fourth floor are two more bedrooms, a full bath, and an accommodating kitchenette. The king-size bedroom is quite dramatic, with its sculpted ceiling and oversized window. Retreat out to the roof deck made with wood reclaimed from the Coney Island Boardwalk is a true treat the views are compliments of Prospect Park. There is a lush green roof, featured in Martha Stewart Living providing views of Downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Sixteen-zone heating/air conditioning keeps the interior climate comfortable. All bathrooms in the home are appointed with Duravit fixtures. The English basement with sliding glass doors to the yard provides an abundance of storage and includes an additional bedroom and full bathroom. A legal 2 family currently used as a single-family home. The renovation included all new top of the line mechanicals, including electrical, plumbing, a sprinkler system as well as a multiple zone A/C system and has included a new roof. Steel beams were added to the home to support a kitchen and deck on the 4th floor. From its creation well over a century ago, on up to the present day, the work here has been done and it has been done so well. This eclectic jewel requires only your furnishings to make this your perfect home.
