On a tree-lined landmarked block steps to Prospect Park, this gorgeous 5BR/3.5BA, 4620SF barrel-front limestone boasts a sun-splashed floor plan teeming with splendid period details, a fabulous lushly landscaped backyard with cherry blossom tree, and has been legally converted to a two-family with a studio apartment to the front of the English basement.
Enter at the parlor level where you are greeted by a formal living room brightened by a bay window and an under-stair storage closet. Pocket doors lead to the windowed formal dining room where elegant wainscotting, a decorative mantel and brass sconces set the stage for your next intimate soirée. To the rear, you will find a sparkling well-lit kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, abundant storage, walk-in pantry and windowed eat-in area where a passionate home chef might add additional counter space or an island.
Ascend from the kitchen pantry or living room staircase to the second-level landing leading to a sizable, sunny front bedroom accented by a bay window and adjacent corner window, two built-in bookcases, and an expansive walk-in closet with dressing sink which connects to the back bedroom and a large full bathroom.
Upstairs, the top level is occupied by another large bay-windowed bedroom with mirrored vanity, a bright bedroom with dressing sink and mirrored vanity, and a smaller bedroom currently configured as an office, built-in shelves flanking its window. The floor is completed by a wallpapered full bathroom with original stained-glass window.
Off the kitchen, you will find a stairway with separate entrance that continues down to the English basement with a laundry room, plentiful storage closets, an extra refrigerator, powder room and income-generating studio apartment. The spacious bay windowed studio features a pass-through kitchen with breakfast bar, a comfortable living/dining area, separate space for a bed, a walk-in closet leading to a bathroom, an additional storage closet and a windowseat ideal for displaying plants, books or more storage.
The beautifully manicured, fenced backyard is perfect for garden parties, soaking up the summer sun or planting your own herbs.
Centrally located steps to Prospect Park, and a short walk to the many restaurants, dining, shopping and service options Park Slope has to offer, including Nitehawk Cinema, Old Stone House, Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Equidistant to the F/G at Seventh Ave and the 2/3/4 at Grand Army Plaza. A wonderful opportunity to own an income-generating sanctuary on a picturesque Park Slope block.
