This Renaissance Revival-slash-neo-Classical townhouse at 26 Montgomery Place in Park Slope is quite the grand residence. Landmarked and located on a park block, it’s huge, loaded with period details in stellar condition, and offers some modern amenities the 19th-century builders of the house never considered, like a roof deck and an in-ground pool.
The parlor floor is full of original woodwork and other detail: crown moldings, mirrors, mantels, inlaid floors, wainscoting. The kitchen is something else, set beneath an ornate coffered ceiling with a stained-glass skylight, with a parquet floor and a mantel.
While the listing, from Halstead brokers Jackie Lew and Marc Wisotsky, says it’s being used as a one-family, the house is set up as a three-bedroom triplex sandwiched between two-bedroom apartments on the garden and top floors. That arrangement means the top-floor tenant — who has access to the roof deck via a spiral staircase — shares the staircase used by the triplex dwellers, a setup not every buyer is going to go for, especially at this price point.
There’s no photo of the pool, sadly. In addition to the rear yard where it resides there are several other outdoor spaces, including a balcony off the parlor floor, a third-floor terrace and the aforementioned roof deck.
This one was up for sale in 2013, when it was a House of the Day, asking $5.79 million. It seems it didn’t sell and was rented instead — until last month when it sold for just under the 2013 ask, at $5.7 million. Now, curiously, it’s back on the market, this time asking $6.7 million. What do you make of the place?
