Here’s a completely modern design executed inside an 1880s Park Slope townhouse. The single-family home at 297 11th Street was purchased by an LLC — one of the members is Amy Shakespeare, a principal in SGVA Architecture, who gutted and redesigned the home — in October of 2016 for $1.619 million. Not a typical flip, the architects clearly had a strong, modern vision for the home and appear to have taken great care with the project.
Beyond the simple red brick facade, there are no historic details left in the three-bedroom, 2.5 bath home. Instead, the architects have added wide plank floors, wood grain cabinetry and splashes of color in the bathrooms.
The space inside is narrow at just under 17 feet wide, and the wall that divides the hall and staircase from the living areas has been removed. At the front of the garden level, there is a dining nook and the kitchen.
At the rear of the home, a sunken living room opens onto the garden and large windows have been added.
The home also has a finished recreation room in the cellar as well as separate storage areas. There are radiant floors in the living room, Marvin windows throughout and cellulose insulation, as well as a high-efficiency heating and cooling system.
Listed by Myrta Echevarria and Valerie Wright of Dwell Residential, the house is asking $3.679 million. Let’s hear your thoughts.
