Key Features

Meticulously restored and fully renovated, this Prime Park Slope Brownstone Mansion, half a block from Prospect Park, is a historic gem melding classic elegance with modern luxury. Built circa 1903, and designed by the preeminent Brooklyn architect Benjamin Driesler, this legal 2-family used as a single family is a rare, enchanting 5,502 sq ft townhouse offering 4,610 finely-finished square feet on 4 main floors; plus an additional 892 sq ft finished basement. The flexible layout accommodates the growing needs of a family with many possibilities.

The gorgeous interior is brimming with original details that have been thoughtfully preserved, including the beautiful coffered ceilings, custom woodwork & paneling, 2 pier mirrors, tasteful built-ins & fireplaces, leaded glass cabinets, bordered parquet floors, pocket doors, and superbly-restored staircases. The restoration of original features and all stunning modernizations were carefully conceived and crafted by a professional interior designer. A brand new chef’s kitchen, and bright, spacious bathrooms styled with imported Italian marble tiling and radiant heat floors are among the extensive upgrades. The 2 lower levels of this grand 6 bedroom, 3 full bath home measure a generous 74 feet deep. The completely renovated contemporary garden level boasts an airy, lofty ambience that extends to the rear of the house, which accesses the spacious private patio. Entertaining is effortless with a large living room, brand new open eat-in kitchen appointed with imported Italian cabinetry, white quartz countertops, custom built-ins, and premium Miele and Gaggenau appliances, a dining room and full bathroom. The parlor floor presents front and rear parlors, a fireplace, library and den.

Occupying the third story are 2 generously-sized bedrooms; one with a fireplace and front-facing windows; the other a master bedroom with a huge walk-in closet, en-suite bath, and private rear-facing doors leading to a roof. Level four houses an additional 2 bedrooms with fireplaces and walk-in closets, a study/office, full bath and washer/dryer. The finished lower level presents a large recreation room and additional storage. New windows, updated electric, an on-demand water system, brand new LVL joists with cement slab barrier, and a 5-zone Mitsubishi City Multi system are among the other highlights.

Old world charm meets contemporary sophistication in the quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood, close to Prospect Park, near the shops, restaurants and conveniences of 7th Avenue. More photos to come. Broker-owner.
