About this Property
Stunning turn-of-the century detail harmonizes perfectly with the ultimate in modern comforts and amenities in this extra wide and deep 4 story limestone. Located a few doors down from Prospect Park, on a particularly lovely and quiet tree lined park block in the heart of the historic district, this home boasts just under 5,000 square feet of south facing, beautifully proportioned space. Exquisite details, such as richly hued parquet floors, huge stained-glass bay windows, 8 beautifully carved fireplaces and exquisite plaster moldings on the 12 high ceilings abound. The 4 story house is currently used as a 5-bedroom upper triplex complete with zoned CAC as well as a high income garden rental with private entrance. While the current configuration keeps both completely private, conversion back to a single family would be a cinch. The parlor floor has a giant bay of south facing windows with original stained glass, 3 handsome (currently decorative) fireplaces, mahogany wainscoting, four sets of talfull-width formal dining room seating 12 and an expansive, eat-in, cooks kitchen. This floor has comfortably hosted parties of over 100 guests as well as countless warm, intimate gatherings. The kitchen marries the many original elegant features with all the accoutrements needed by a modern chef who loves to entertain. It is spacious and infused with light from giant stained glass bays and a large stained-glass skylight. Elements such as the carved quarter-sawn oak fireplace and hutch complement the well planned, modern layout including a granite topped island with seating for 5. The kitchen has been appointed with top-of-the-line appliances such as a 6 burner professional Viking cooktop and Sub-Zero refrigerator and has tons of counter and storage space. Behind the kitchen is a butlers pantry with sink and additional storage. Above, you will find a spectacular and sunny full-width master bedroom, with a fireplace and giant bay which connects via his-and-her traditional pass-throughs to the adjoining bedroom, currently used as a den. Both pass-through areas have working marble topped sinks, original cabinetry and are separated by gorgeous maple pocket doors. The freshly renovated, spa-like bath has an extra large glassed-in shower and Grohe fixtures.There are three bedrooms above, two with fireplaces, one with bays and all with lots of sun and more beautiful detail. The high-income rental on the garden is a huge one bedroom with separate den or office and has a new kitchen and bath, both recently renovated. The clean and dry basement has unusually high 8 ceilings and a portion of which has been finished and includes a half bath. Throughout the house there are new Marvin windows, 200 amp electrical service and mechanicals in excellent condition. The location is minutes from the restaurants and shopping on 7th Avenue, the Saturday Farmers Market, the Botanic Garden and the 2, 3, B, Q, G and F trains.
