Description

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from July 17, 2017
Welcome to 897 Union Street, a dramatic, classic and contemporary townhouse located on a picture-perfect tree-lined street in the north section of Park Slope. It is one of eight distinguished and fanciful homes designed by Albert E. White in 1889, which alternate between the Romanesque Revival and Queen Ann architectural styles. Each of these homes feature a distinctive L- shape stone stoop. The blue stone slab sidewalks leading to the stoop have been meticulously restored and leveled, lending to the block's unique character. The home has been thoughtfully designed and offers a flexible floor plan with all the modern conveniences for today's lifestyle. This includes a new 4-zone heat/central air, 4-5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a finished basement, wine cellar, two laundry rooms, a beautiful south-facing garden, ample closets and storage space, as well as a surround sound and intercom system. The house is 4 stories, approximately 19 by 50 feet deep. It is a B3 legal two family currently configured as a single-family home. Easy conversion to a double duplex. As you enter the parlor level from the main entryway, you are immediately greeted with the architectural detail of a custom-made front door replica of the original. It opens into an enclosed vestibule surrounded by the original "bullseye" lead glass windows. The front parlor room is currently being used as a music room and the rear parlor room is used as a family room/office. The rear room features three south-facing bay windows, a custom walk-in closet, bamboo flooring and a full bathroom. The garden level below is a modern, sleek, sun-filled inviting space. Beautiful slate flooring on this level provides cool comfort during the warmer months and has radiant heating throughout to ensure your comfort as the weather gets colder. The state of the art Poggenpohl center island kitchen is truly a cook's delight with custom cabinetry and an imported granite counter top. No detail has been spared in this kitchen, including top of the line appliances; Bosch cooktop, Sub Zero refrigerator, a Miele convection oven and two Miele dishwashers! The kitchen is centrally positioned on this level so you are always part of the action, whether you are dining or relaxing in your open den. The den contains a wall of glass which leads out to your south facing garden. The garden boasts a built-in cooking station with a natural gas barbecue, easy to maintain lush plantings, and brand new fencing. There is also the bonus of a renovated powder room on this level. As you make your way to the third floor, you will notice the handsome "center" staircase which maximizes space and allows the full use of width of this home. The third-floor Great Room offers plenty of seating options while you relax in front of your wood burning fireplace. The guest room on this level includes an ensuite bathroom and second laundry room. The top floor has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and four skylights which flood this floor in natural light.
