This magnificent park-block brownstone is rich with original details.
Turn-of-the-century elegance and old-world craftsmanship define this lovingly-maintained 3-story Italianate brownstone with impressive intact details at every turn. A vestibule invites you into the gracious parlor with soaring ceilings and an open, airy feel. The living room boasts rich inlaid parquet floors, intricate woodwork, ceiling moldings, floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the space in southern light, and an impressive ornate decorative fireplace and mantelpiece. Separated by pocket doors, the eat-in-kitchen is the perfect gathering place with space for a large dining table, custom appointments, and built-ins throughout. The kitchen leads to a spacious deck with spiral stairs overlooking the beautifully-tended 45-foot yard below.
Up the grand mahogany staircase are three bedrooms – a comfortable master, a spacious second bedroom, and one smaller room that is perfect for a nursery or study, each with a closet. The bathroom has been tastefully updated. The laundry room, replete with a washer-dryer, linen closet, utility sink, and ironing station is also conveniently located on this level.
Currently configured as a 2-family upper duplex over a spacious 1br apartment, the garden floor has income/in-law apartment potential, or the home can be easily converted into the single-family residence of your dreams. Classic details, including original floors, a decorative fireplace, pocket shutters and wainscoting, continue into the garden apartment. A washer-dryer adds convenience. (The property will be delivered vacant.) There is a full cellar with room for storage.
The 100-foot property is nestled on landmarked 11th Street, an idyllic tree-lined brownstone block that is enchantingly illuminated by gas lamps. Less than a half block from the entrance to Prospect Park in one direction and a block and a half to 7th Avenue amenities in the other, the location leaves nothing to be desired. Current zoning is for PS 107.
