About this Property
Built in 1860, 102 Prospect Place is among the oldest homes in Park Slope. A combination of Greek Revival and Federal style architecture, its clean lines, brick front and mansard roof radiate elegance. The owners have completed a meticulous gut-renovation while maintaining the home’s historic facade and staying true to its original architecture. The renovation includes: new plumbing, electric, kitchen, bathrooms, replacement of select floors and stairwells, the restoration of two working fireplaces, the addition of two venting sky-lights, new windows, French doors and the addition of a slate mansard roof with a custom roof cornice and copper gutter. The lower brownstone facade was also restored and its front garden was concrete reinforced and planted with a new star Magnolia.

The home’s modern elements blend seamlessly with traditional brownstone details including antique marble mantels, radiators, tin ceilings, original window shutters, moldings and medallions.

Garden Floor: The entire garden floor is open and airy and houses an eat in kitchen with a walk in pantry, a cozy living room with a working, wood burning fireplace, a windowed powder room and French doors that lead to an immense and magical garden.

Garden: The deep and landscaped backyard has a 100+ year old fruit bearing, apple tree which is magnificent in every season. There is also a fig tree, mature plantings and flowering seasonal plantings that include hydrangeas, forsythias, lilies, peonies, assorted ferns and hellebore. A stone herb garden and vegetable garden are lovingly maintained.

Parlor: The parlor is sophisticated and chic. Enter the foyer and immediately glimpse the graceful, curving stairwell, the soaring ceilings and the arched doorway leading to the formal living and dining room. Floor to ceiling windows grace both rooms. In the front parlor a wood burning fireplace creates the perfect ambience on a chilly winter night. Three 8 foot windows line the rear wall of the dining room. One of which is in a side alcove and can easily be converted into a door to a future outdoor terrace overlooking the outsized garden. This cozy alcove has already been roughed for plumbing so a kitchenette or wet bar can be added with little effort.

3rd Floor: The master suite encompasses the entire 3rd floor. The master bedroom, designed by Key + Shade Interior Design, has built-in shelving and drawers, three large windows adorned with custom shades and Cole & Sons wallpaper. Adjacent to the bedroom is an enormous walk in closet that measures nearly 8’x8’. The master bath is beautifully designed with classic Calacatta marble, a glass walk in shower and a double sink. The floor also includes a washer/dryer and a charming, corner office overlooking the lush garden and an ivy covered wall.

4th Floor: The top floor is perhaps the most charming. Following the gracious lines of the home’s updated Mansard roof. The floor’s three rooms and one full bath include sloping ceilings that seamlessly fold into the home’s four antique dormer windows. Venting skylights have been added to the floor’s two largest bedrooms and add extra natural light and fresh air. The guest room is a jewel box replete with wallpaper designed by Timorous Beasties.

Basement: Deepened to accommodate 8’ ceilings, the spacious and storage rich basement can easily be refinished to add expanded living space if desired.
