We return to the Romanesque Revival in this garden-level one bedroom in Park Slope close to Prospect Park. It features a wood paneled living room with a working fireplace and a mantel that is worthy of the period, its long dentilled brackets holding up drawers and two tiers of shelves supported by spindled columns and a central niche, capped with a decorative cornice. The fluted and dentilled door trim is equally impressive, and we also see ornate built-in china cabinets and bordered parquet details.
Photos from a previous listing show a kitchen with a somewhat updated stove. The bedroom is in a room facing the backyard, and we also see a washer and dryer and a linen closet. The garden looks attractively overgrown with a limestone bench, reminiscent of a late 19th century or early 20th century park.
The home is located at 552 2nd Street in the Park Slope Historic District, part of a Romanesque Revival row of five designed by John E. Dwyer and built in 1891. The designation report notes its somewhat flattened front bays, high basements, arched doorways and alternating pattern of pediments and bracketed cornices, also a potential attraction of this apartment, which is perhaps manageable for a couple. The damage is $2,950 a month, and David Carter of Brown Harris Stevens is handling the listing. Is it a good price with the garden and the proximity to Prospect Park?
