Renovated to the highest standard, this four story Italianate brownstone strikes a delightful balance between historic preservation and modern sensibilities. Measuring 16.67' x 45' on a 100' lot and configured as a 2250 square foot five bedroom owners triplex over a renovated 750 square foot one bedroom garden level rental, the property is steeped in warmth and elegance and decorated with a mix of classic and contemporary designer finishes. The entire home is adorned with hardwood floors, high ceilings and gorgeous original detail, while natural light floods every room via Northern and Southern exposures and multiple skylights. Built in 1899, this historic residence has been updated with an array of modern and relevant comforts, including central A/C, Honeywell Ultraviolet sterilized forced air heating with Aprilaire humidifier, radiant heated bathroom floors, new Pella sound insulated, hurricane strength windows, skylights with automatic remote closing system, and energy conserving solar panels.
Enter the parlour level via the newly pointed stoop. A proper entryway features a coat closet and discretely conceals an internal stairway to the garden unit. A classic example of turn of the 20th Century architecture, the expansive 23' living and entertaining space is delineated by two decorative fireplaces. A fully-equipped kitchen is well-appointed with elegant marble countertops, hand-crafted cabinetry, Wolf gas range, Subzero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. This level exits to a Brazilian Ipe wood deck and a tranquil landscaped garden with an irrigation system and a mature cherry tree. The uppermost level of the owners' triplex offers an office, two bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a media room/library), and a full sky-lit bathroom with a hand-placed clawfoot tub. The middle level has a full, sunny bathroom and two bedrooms connected by a closet suite. The garden rental has been recently renovated and lovingly maintained, while the cellar has been dug out and updated with concrete floors and new mechanicals.
438 7th Street is ideally situated on one of Park Slope's most beautiful blocks, minutes from the F/G subways, and surrounded by the wonderful culture and amenities that this community is known for.
