Minutes to bucolic Prospect Park, this sprawling 4BR/2.5BA duplex features high ceilings, a private wooden deck and a beautifully landscaped backyard ideal for alfresco dining, cultivating an herb garden or admiring the changing seasons. The bright, airy 2400SF+ floor plan is made up of approximately 795SF on the parlor level and an impressive 1641SF on the garden level.
Situated in a majestic 25ft-wide 8th Avenue mansion with only eight units, the pet-friendly home offers optimal privacy. Enter at the parlor level where you will find an open living area with 13-ft vaulted tin ceilings, refinished ribboned hardwood floors, mahogany wainscotting, a decorative mantel and handsome wood-framed pier mirror that enchant at first sight. Delight in calming garden views from the two oversized great room windows or adjacent kitchen with backyard deck. Commercial-grade appliances, abundant cabinets, a generous workspace and large breakfast bar with new stone countertop provide you with an excellent foundation to create the kitchen of your dreams. A storage closet and powder room are conveniently tucked inside the entry area.
Accessible by interior stairs, street or backyard via sliding glass doors, the garden level exhibits brand new ceramic floors, a cozy family room, large laundry room, two full bathrooms, and four bedrooms that could also function as your future home office, hobby room or gym. Each bedroom is uniquely designed with built-ins and one featuring a bay window, another a massive walk-in closet with en suite bath and additional sink, and two generous rear rooms that overlook the garden. A spacious full bath with double sink is accessible from both front rooms and the family room. The building has a very low underlying mortgage and healthy reserve fund.
Adjacent to the 2/3/4 Grand Army Plaza station and minutes from the 7th Avenue Q/B station, the idyllic location is convenient to Park Slope’s plentiful restaurants, cafes, boutiques, services, grocery stores (such as Union Market) and fitness centers (such as Crunch and SoulCycle). And with the Brooklyn Public Library main branch, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum and weekend Greenmarket just short distance away, you can take advantage of all the area has to offer.
