With PRIVATE OUTDOOR SPACE and spanning the entire 75' PARLOR floor of a stunning Garfield Place, park-block, five-story limestone townhouse, this grand home is dripping with exquisite period detail and offers expansive space and a multitude of configuration possibilities. Throughout the home you'll find 12-foot ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors with walnut inlay, two sets of original pocket doors--one with gorgeous intact stained glass-- three decorative fireplaces with mahogany mantels, original tilework and inlaid mirrors, ceiling medallions, original columns, fretwork and spindles, chair-rail moldings, ornate crown moldings, carved woodwork, and decorative plasterwork. The spacious living room centers on the fireplace and features three large bay windows framed by stained glass transoms. Immense double-doors could also serve as the main entrance. Columns and intricate fretwork separate the living area from the dressing area and closets. The middle room, also centered on a beautiful fireplace and currently used as a dining area and study, has floor-to ceilings built-ins and two enormous closets. Wonderful light streams in through an oversized south-facing window. Through the final doorway is the third living space, boasting another elegant fireplace and bay window which brings in glorious afternoon light.
The renovated galley kitchen has solid-wood cabinetry, new stainless-steel appliances, Corian counters, and an abundance of work and storage space. The spa-like windowed bath has a cast iron clawfoot tub with ROHL polished nickel faucets, a pedestal sink, radiant heated marble flooring, and classic Kohler fixtures. Best of all, outside the kitchen is a charming deck, complete with flowering window-boxes, and a staircase leading to the private backyard patio. Beautifully landscaped with room to grill and dine al fresco, this sweet space is a quiet and serene escape.
Currently used as a one-bedroom home, this voluminous space could easily be reconfigured (with coop approval)--move the kitchen adjacent to the living area, create a second bedroom, or simply leave this rare and opulent space untouched. On one of Park Slope's most sought-after treelined blocks, a half block from Prospect Park, a block and a half from all of the amenities, restaurants and shops on 7th Avenue, four blocks to 2/3 trains at Grand Army Plaza, the Saturday farmer's market, the Library and Botanic Garden, the location is fantastic. Common laundry, storage, and bike storage in the basement. With solid financials and no underlying mortgage, the coop is wonderfully managed and maintained.
