About this Property
Park Slope A masterpiece of modern design in the heart of Brownstone Brooklyn. This chic, one-of-a-kind, 30-foot-wide, single-family home offers the best of city living in a virtually free-standing house full of loft-like open spaces, light, and multiple outdoor areas (approx 1,850 SF), including a private terrace, a street-facing balcony, a roof deck, and a landscaped back yard. With 4 Bedrooms (easily converts to more) and 4 Full Baths on three levels and with four exposures (N, S, E, W), the home boasts extraordinary design elements of natural materials, glass, steel, and light. Created in 2004 by architect Philippe Baumann, the design encompasses an original 1899 carriage house, with additional articulated steel frames introduced to construct new upper floors. Using natural materials such as gorgeous Heart of Pine wide-plank floors and cedar ceilings, as well as multiple skylights (including a 30 long skylight to pull down light and dramatically illuminate the Living Room) the aesthetic is at once spacious and contemporary, with a warm and gracious feel, while traditional elements such as the original brick and timber walls, extra wide staircases, and exposed black steel beams all recall the propertys earlier historic incarnations. Modern touches throughout complement the house's high level of design. An Open Chefs Kitchen with a center island, Wolf Range and Hood, Bosch Dishwasher, and extra-wide Sub-Zero Fridge, overlooks neighboring gardens through large windows. Central Air, Recessed Lighting, and Large Closet Spaces are found throughout. The Baths are each uniquely designed, including a spa-like upper floor Bath with rain shower head and French Doors that open directly to an outdoor hot tub on the Terrace. On the lower level, flexible spaces such as a Media/Recreation Room and a large Home Office/Gym are supplemented by a Laundry Room, Utility Room, and several Storage Closets. Most unusual, however, is the extraordinary, light-filled Great Room on the upper level with 12 foot-6-inch high ceilings. This fabulous entertaining space -- with a balcony on the front of the house overlooking Prospect Place brownstones and, on the other end through French doors, a generously-proportioned back terrace and private, landscaped garden below -- can be used for a multitude of functions and/or be easily remodeled for additional bedrooms.With an ideal Park Slope location, this home at 77 Prospect Place is situated on a quiet, tree-lined street, and yet is a mere two blocks to Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park, while being a block away from the amenities of 5th Avenue, including some of Brooklyns best cafes, restaurants, and shopping. The location is also close to Prospect Heights and Downtown with B.A.M., the Barclay Center, and all of the many cultural offerings and transportation conveniences that provides. ** ADDITIONAL Buildable F.A.R also available.
