Here’s a four-story Neo-Grec brownstone in Park Slope that’s had a recent, exhaustive makeover. Located two blocks from Prospect Park at 413 8th Street, the home was built in the 1880s and was redone by interior designer Sheena Murphy of Sheep + Stone in collaboration with architecture firm Frances Mildred.
A two-family that’s currently configured as a one-family, the new look is modern-heritage, with classic elements integrated into the unfussy, minimal design. Original details are mixed in with new floors and updated kitchens and bathrooms, and the entire facade has been painted white in the last year.
The large kitchen on the parlor floor has a farmhouse sink, grey-green cabinets and a matching, marble-topped island. The en suite master bath has a clawfoot tub, dual wood-fronted vanity and penny tile floor, while the fourth-story bath has a wall-hung farmhouse sink.
There are two marble mantels, one on the parlor floor and another in the master bedroom. Plaster and wood moldings remain in some of the rooms. The rear bedroom on the fourth story has a custom window seat between light Carolina blue colored closets.
Speaking of the fourth floor, it’s a “cheater floor” that slopes down in the front and is not visible from the street. Part of the front half of the floor may work for storage.
The house last sold for $2.5 million in February 2017. A little over a year later, Level Group’s Chris Au has the listing, which is asking $4.495 million. There is an open house Thursday night from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Do you think they will get their ask?
