Timeless European elegance, old-world craftsmanship, refinement, versatility, and modern amenities define this distinctive 22-foot wide turn-of-the-century Center Slope Italianate brownstone. Seven bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms graciously span throughout this home.

The glamorous parlour floor features a sun-drenched formal living room, boasting 11 foot ceilings, inspiring south-facing full height windows with pocket shutters, stunning original moldings, and a decorative marble mantle. Perfect for effortless entertaining, the living room flows seamlessly into an open concept eat-in kitchen, which is tastefully appointed with crisp white cabinets and contrasting countertops along with stainless steel appliances that include a Bosch range and a Miele dishwasher. The dining area features a marble mantle and french doors to the deck where a spiral staircase descends to the tranquil garden.

The third level has the classic yet modern brownstone layout: two bright and generously-proportioned rooms, an attached bonus child's room/study/dressing room, and an oversize windowed full bathroom. The north-facing room offers a wet bar, enabling it to double as a family room or bedroom. The top floor is similarly configured with two king-size bedrooms, each with an adjacent side-room, and a full sky-lit bathroom. Both upper levels are warmed by original pine plank flooring. Adorned with white-washed hardwood floors, the garden level features a versatile layout. A casually elegant front room is perfect for use as a family room with charming tin ceilings, windows with pocket shutters, a marble mantle, and built-in bookcase. A bright rear room has an en-suite jacuzzi bathroom and leads to a garden room with sliding doors and radiant-heated concrete floors. This room is an ideal spot for curling up with a book and a cup of coffee or glass of wine while overlooking the changing seasons.

In the garden level is also a tumbled travertine bathroom with a European spa-like walk-in dual-head shower and a heated floor. A bonus hallway in between the rooms offers built-in shelving and extra closet space. Finally, the basement offers flexible recreation space with exposed beams; featuring natural light via a skylit hatch, a powder room, a laundry room with a Whirlpool washer-dryer and a sink, and excellent storage.

Three-zone central-air throughout the home provides comfort.

Nestled mid-block on a broad tree-shaded side street in the heart of Park Slope, the location is idyllic in every way. In the immediate vicinity are JJ Byrne Park, Old Stone House, the Sunday Greenmarket, and a myriad of acclaimed eateries, cafes, boutiques, and pubs. Prospect Park and transportation are within blocks. Currently zoned for PS 321.

More about Park Slope

Ranked as NYC's #1 most livable neighborhood by New York magazine, and selected by The American Planning Association as one of the 10 Great Neighborhoods in America, Park Slope boasts a diverse mix of restaurants and businesses, along with a robust and active community. Park Slope is one of Brooklyn's most famous neighborhoods for its picture-perfect brownstone blocks, mom-and-pop shops, and proximity to the green expanse of Prospect Park, which the streets slope downward from, hence, the literal name. The neighborhood faces the western end of the park, with the surrounding residential blocks boasting some of the city's most prized architecture. While the neighborhood is known for its family-friendly atmosphere, Park Slope's two main thoroughfares - 5th and 7th avenues - boast a plethora of cafes, bars, and restaurants that cater to a younger clientele, and, now industrial 4th Avenue is becoming a thriving commercial hub, as well. The strong sense of community found in Park Slope is exemplified by its many organizations and the popularity of the 17,000-member Park Slope Food Co-op. Park Slope is also home to some of borough's finest eateries such as al di la Trattoria (the restaurant that arguably started the 5th Avenue retail revolution), Talde, Fonda, Stone Park Café, Convivium Osteria, and Blue Ribbon. Colloquially separated into three distinct sub-neighborhoods - North Slope, Center Slope, and South Slope - Park Slope is, geographically, one of Brownstone Brooklyn's largest neighborhoods, stretching from Prospect Park to 4th Avenue and Flatbush Avenue to Prospect Avenue.
