Welcome home to this handsome Center Slope brownstone!
Entering the gracious parlor level, French doors lead into an expansive and airy living room with high ceilings and oversized south and north-facing windows allowing sunlight to pour in. Lovely original details abound, such as refinished inlaid parquet floors, three decorative fireplace mantles, moldings, pocket shutters, wainscoting, an ornate newel post, and chandeliers.
A separate dining area overlooks the peaceful rear garden, and an open windowed kitchen offers cherry cabinetry and black granite countertops, a gas range and microwave, dishwasher, and custom paneled built-in refrigerator. The sun-filled upper level houses four bedrooms and a sky-lit bathroom. Two of the bedrooms can accommodate king-sized beds. The rear bedrooms feature seasonal Downtown Brooklyn views. Additional details on the upper level include original wide pine plank floors and a stained-glass hallway skylight.
Period charm continues as you make your way down to the garden level; comprised of three separate rooms that can be used in a variety of ways, including additional living space or bedrooms. The second windowed bathroom is located on this level. Currently arranged as a single-family, this home is legally zoned as a 2-family and can be easily converted into an owner’s duplex over an income-producing rental by adding a kitchen (plumbing is already in place). The deep garden is an urban oasis, accessible from this floor. Downstairs, the dry cellar offers laundry and plenty of space for storage.
This home measures 17.5’ x 45’ and sits on a 100’ lot. There is a substantial amount of buildable square footage (FAR) available. Conveniently set on a tree-lined Center Slope block, all the amenities of both 5th Avenue and 7th Avenue are within steps. Magnificent Prospect Park is just a 10-minute stroll, and 7th Avenue F/G station and 9th Street F/G/R station are equidistant. Currently zoned for PS 39.
