This red brick and brownstone 1880s townhouse, at 158 Berkeley Place in the Park Slope Historic District, offers some nice original details and some layout flexibility for those up for a little reconfiguring. Currently a two-family set up with double duplexes, the four-story house could be a renovated into a triplex over a rental or a grand single family with a little work.
In the detail department it’s got plenty of what you want in a North Slope townhouse — a high-ceilinged parlor floor, a decorative mantel, parquet floors with inlays, french doors, leaded glass, molding, wainscoting and plaster arches. The Neo-Grec exterior is choice as well, with its mansard roof and mix of brick and brownstone.
The lower duplex has a pair of bedrooms on the garden level, with a study in a small addition on the rear. The upper duplex has two bedrooms above and a third that sits on the same floor as the living room and kitchen.
Said kitchen sounds like it could use an upgrade — it’s not pictured, and the listing describes the unit as being “primed for renovation.” The lower kitchen looks to be in decent shape, and has a country-kitchen feel, with exposed brick and terra cotta floor tile; it opens onto a deck.
Each of the duplexes has only a single bathroom, and neither is particularly large; the listing notes that there’s room to add additional ones.
At around 18 feet wide, the house has a sliver of a garden — just eight feet wide.
Listed by Halstead brokers Geraldine Griffin and Rod Murray, the place is showing at an open house Sunday, January 15, from 12:30 to 2:30. The ask: $2.785 million. How’s it look to you?
