This two-family Park Slope brownstone carries a rather hefty price tag, but it brings a fair amount to the table, with original details in prime shape and thoughtful updating. It’s at 408 4th Street, in the center of the hood and a few blocks from coveted P.S. 321.
It’s a four-story offering a triplex over a garden rental, with a finished basement.
There’s an extension in the rear, which houses a bedroom on the garden level and the triplex’s kitchen on the parlor floor.
It’s a good-looking kitchen, with maple cabinetry, stone countertops, a Viking range, a glass door leading to a deck, and a banquette built into a bay window, an enviable spot for coffee drinking.
Up front, details include inlaid floors, mahogany door and window casings, a decorative fireplace, pocket doors and an entry bench with a mirror by the front door.
The second floor holds a master suite, with a deck off the bedroom, an en suite bath, and a large library with built-in bookshelves and another mantel.
There are three more bedrooms above, along with a skylit office space.
The rental is in prime shape, with yet another fireplace in the living room, a nicely renovated kitchen and a laundry room. The finished basement below holds a rec room, storage and a climate-controlled wine cellar.
The garden’s fetching as well, with wooden seating built around a curved stone wall, a bluestone patio, an irrigation system and a couple of trees.
Listed by Leslie Marshall and James Cornell of Corcoran, the house is asking $4.495 million. Which, as noted, is not a gentle figure, but there’s a lot here to appeal to the well-heeled buyer. Think they’ll get it?
