This sun-filled freestanding townhouse in the heart of Park Slope wows with a private driveway and sizable backyard leading to a detached 500SF three-car garage previously used as a recording studio and now a sunny yoga salon. With a wall of glass doors, full bathroom and ample storage, the studio can be transformed to suit your lifestyle needs.
Spread over three floors, the 18' x 35' four-bedroom, two-bathroom home was meticulously renovated and fully gutted in 2004, and features high ceilings and hardwood floors throughout, central A/C and heat, and a vented W/D. The legal two-family home is currently configured as a single family residence and sits on a 25' x 100' lot, with 3324SF of unused FAR allowing further expansion to the property of your dreams.
Enter through the expansive living area brightened by three exposures and accented with handsome built-in bookshelves and a gas fireplace with mantel. Pass through the open dining area to the fabulous kitchen where a new stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, LG microwave, LG French door refrigerator, KitchenAid Superba range and granite countertops encourage culinary adventure. Off the kitchen, a spacious deck is an idyllic spot for alfresco dinner parties and lounging in the sun with a good book.
Boasting vaulted ceilings and abundant natural light, the airy upper level is made up of a skylit primary bedroom with blackout shade, a walk-in closet and skylit bathroom. Both skylights are operable to maximize ventilation and invite the outdoors in. An adjacent smaller room might be used as an office, library, nursery, craft haven or TV room, however you see fit.
Access the lower level through interior stairs or private street-facing entrance where you will find two comfortable closeted bedrooms flanking a guest bathroom with Jacuzzi tub for melting away the stress of the day. To the rear, a mud room opens to a large patio perfect for entertaining, relaxing under the canopy of a magnolia tree or cultivating a home garden.
