Description

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from July 07, 2015
This four-story Georgian Brick and Limestone single family home was designed by the Brooklyn architectural firm of Chappel and Bosworth in 1911, and is perfectly situated on a gorgeous tree lined block just a stone's throw from Prospect Park in central Park Slope. Enter through the original double oak paned doors and vestibule into the spacious Center Hall with center stairs, original plaster moldings, decorative marble fireplace, and powder room.Ascend one short flight and you will find the grand parlor floor's expansive living and sitting rooms that offer fantastic light and are outfitted with breathtaking formal Colonial Revival details, impeccable moldings, Quarter Sawn Oak floors, beveled glass windows, and a built-in banquette. On the same level, the formal dining room has an Arts and Crafts ceiling, high mahogany wainscoting, leaded period bay windows, and built-in corner china cabinets also in the Colonial Revival style with decorative inlay. The south-facing kitchen has original cabinets in the pantry along with a pine jump seat and decorative dumbwaiter.There are four large full-building-width bedrooms on the upper floors including a sprawling south-facing master bedroom with en-suite bath and operable stained glass door to the roof over the first floor extension. This fantastic home offers four full baths and a powder room and a bonus flexible fifth bedroom on the first level that can be used as a studio "in law" suite or a recreational space. The south facing jewel box garden offers excellent light for gardening and a lovely deck for dining al fresco.There is a spacious laundry room on the top level that offers tremendous storage as well, and throughout you will find delightful vestiges of the past such as antique light fixtures and telephones that were used to call floor to floor, casement windows, two stained-glass skylights, and even a hidden built-in wall safe. The oak floors have been preserved and there are spacious closets and light throughout this magical house. The five fireplaces are decorative but were originally functional. There is an English Basement with plenty of storage and the mechanicals have been updated. This well-loved home is full of turn of the century architectural details and it is not to be missed. Showings are by open house and by appointment. First Open House is on Sunday, July 12th.
