Here’s a spacious brownstone in Park Slope that’s in move-in condition, but could use an update in the kitchens and baths. Owned by the same family for decades, it’s located at 60 Berkeley Place, in the Park Slope Historic District Extension II.
Designed by John Magilligan in 1881, the home is 20 feet wide and 42 feet deep. The style is transitional Italianate/Neo-Grec, with an angled bay window extending up the property, incised ornament and bracketed cornice on the facade that add to the home’s overall splendor.
There’s a pier mirror with dark millwork in the foyer, and a center stair with original Eastlake newels and balusters. Four decorative mantels can be found throughout the home, including two on the parlor floor, as well as wainscoting, plaster wall and ceiling moldings and medallions.
The garden deck is accessible from the rear of the parlor, with stairs down to the backyard. A full bath with stand-up shower and two closets can be found tucked in the corner.
There’s a second story rear kitchen with eat-in island and adjacent dining area, walk-in closet and pass-through with a second sink. An arched room at the front of the second story has its own walk-in along with smaller closets.
Bedrooms on the top floor each have a walk-in closet as well, and the front room has an angled skylight in its curved roof and portal windows. There’s a shared bathroom here (not pictured) and a laundry room.
The home is currently configured as a triplex over a garden rental, which is where the second kitchen is located, with inset lighting, a tiled nook for the stove and large sliding glass doors that lead to the garden. Two adjacent closets in a pass-through lead to the front bedroom, which has one of the aforementioned mantels.
Grand Army Plaza is three blocks away, with the nearest transit at the Union Street station. Halstead’s Peter Grazioli and Kate Piccard have the listing, with an ask of $3.35 million. What do you think?
