Landmarked North Slope Townhouse With Neo-Grec Details, Parquet Asks $2.785 Million

by

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?
