Here’s a prime specimen of a Park Slope brownstone, elegant, spacious and move-in ready. Dating to 1891 and designed by Rudolf L. Daus, according to the listing, it sits at 426 4th Street, where it cuts a fine figure from the street, with a generous stoop and an angled facade that’s complemented by the curved front of the house next door.

It’s a two-family, with a lower rental and an upper triplex that holds five potential bedrooms. As it stands, the top floor is configured as a master suite, with a sitting room, a study, an en-suite bath, and a pass-through dressing room set off by pocket doors. A nice spread.

The vibe is classic brownstone, with details including inlaid parquet floors, mahogany door and window casings, pocket doors, numerous tin ceilings, moldings, fretwork, and several mantels. There’s a triple parlor, with a wall of built-in shelving in the center “library.”

There’s a powder room and a renovated kitchen with a laundry closet in the rear, which gets light through a pair of windows and a glass-paneled door leading to a deck. Spiral stairs lead down to a yard dominated by landscaped planting beds.

The rental’s a spacious one, with a front bedroom and a center office, and should command a formidable rent in this Center Slope locale.

Note that round the clock valet parking is available for purchase, according to the listing — quite the luxury for those who can afford it.

Of course you’ll need pretty deep pockets just to afford the house itself, which comes with a price tag of $3.895 million. Douglas Bowen of Douglas Elliman has the listing. Like the look of it?
