This Romanesque Revival number at 44 Montgomery Place in Park Slope is quite the grand residence, designed in 1881 by C.P.H. Gilbert on a distinguished park block.
It’s got some sweet details intact, including inlaid floors, moldings, woodwork, cabinetry, pocket doors and stained glass. (There’s also an original clawfoot tub in a third-floor bathroom.)
There’s plenty of space in this one — around 4,000 square feet spread over five floors. There’s a one-bedroom rental on the garden floor, the rest of the house holds a quadruplex with five bedrooms.
The bedrooms are all massive — there are two apiece on the second and third floors, and a single one on the top floor, along with a sauna and a deck. There’s a laundry room and a ton of closet space, with a handful of walk-ins.
Everything looks presentable enough, but the listing, from Louise Beasley-Spaier at Warren Lewis/Sotheby’s, makes clear there’s some work needed — “bring your vision, architect and contractor,” it reads.
The house hit the market last August for $5 million; it was taken off the market at the end of the year then returned in March. In May it was reduced to $4.8 million (or $4,799,999 if you want to be precise), where the price now stands. What do you make of it?
