This substantial four story, two-family, brownstone offers a luxurious upper triplex with an income-producing garden level apartment perfectly situated in Prospect Heights near Park Slope, the entrance to Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza, and the flourishing dining and shopping that has made the neighborhood so attractive to home buyers. The spacious upper triplex features a parlor floor with high ceilings, a formal stair hall with decorative carved woodwork, and a charming front parlor with elegantly tall windows and a carved marble fireplace. The dining room opens to an elevated rear deck that encourages outdoor living, dining and entertaining and is the perfect spot for morning coffee and evening relaxation. Completing the parlor floor is a full bath and a glass-enclosed, south facing kitchen. The second floor is thoughtfully arranged with two large bedrooms, a full bath and many closets. The third floor includes two additional bedrooms, another full bath and more closets and storage. To seal the deal, the property's valuable garden level rental unit is large and sunny, and offers a full kitchen and bath and access to the rear yard and outdoor dining area. In addition, the full cellar offers great potential and houses a recently updated furnace and mechanicals. Tenderly cared for by the same family for over forty years, you'll be delighted by the home's period details, undiminished by time. As this welcoming neighborhood continues to blossom with first rate restaurants and shopping, this lovely home remains a serene oasis at the center of it all - on a tree lined, landmarked, historic block. Surrounded by great eateries you can begin your day with brunch at James, dine on barbecue at Morgan's, then grab a cone at Ample Hills Creamery on the way home. Bordered by Flatbush and Vanderbilt Avenues, this neighborhood location could not be more convenient to transportation with four major subway lines less than two blocks from your door.
