Live the Park Slope Dream! An Upper Duplex in a classic 1890's Brownstone on a quiet treelined Center Slope block with all original details preserved. The parlor floor boasts a front and back parlor – a large living room with separate dining room – both with stunning decorative fireplaces with original marble mantels. The pocket doors separating the two parlors are in working order with the original etched glass in-tact. Renovated windowed kitchen with large pantry. From the dining room step out onto the large private deck allowing wonderful al fresco dining. Plus the opportunity to relax more and cultivate a kitchen garden by walking down the steps to the large private landscaped back garden. The powder room is on this floor. Up the grand staircase to the top floor, find the spectacular extra-large primary bedroom at the front spanning the full width of the house. Three windows with southern exposure flood the room with natural light. The original marble sink and stunning built-in closets and drawers add special historical touches; as do the working period shutters on each window. The back bedroom is also king-size with ample closet space. Both bedrooms have decorative fireplaces with marble mantels. The middle sky-lighted room makes a perfect home office, and includes the in-unit W/D. This level has the full-bathroom.

More about Park Slope

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.
