Landmarked Park Slope Limestone With Mantels, Marble, La Cornue Stove Asks $4.75 Million

by

This stately 1910 limestone is in beautiful shape, with well-preserved original details and some eye-popping updates. It’s at 542 3rd Street, smack in the center of Park Slope, and a block and a half from Prospect Park.

It’s got a center staircase and a double parlor, with the kitchen housed in a rear extension. Parlor details include columns, a pair of mantels, a columned pier mirror, crown moldings, ceiling medallions, and inlaid parquet floors; the dining room sports a coffered ceiling, wainscoting and built-in china cabinets.

The kitchen is distinctive, with a Deco-ish black and white color scheme. It’s got walls of Carrara marble, soapstone countertops, black and white floor tiles, a black La Cornue range with a matching hood, a Sub-Zero fridge, radiant heated floor and a sound system with embedded speakers.

The skylit master bath upstairs has the same color palette and price-is-no-object elegance, with walls of book-matched marble slabs, a curved-glass-enclosed shower, a radiant-heated floor and a heated towel rack.

It’s part of a top-floor master suite that includes a cedar closet, an office, and a shelf-lined library. The floor below holds two more large bedrooms; both have original mirrored mantels, as do the master and the library.

There’s a terrace off one of the second-floor bedrooms, and a walled ipe deck off the kitchen, with a gas line for a grill. The English basement is finished, and nicely, with a full bathroom and a laundry room with soapstone counters. (Not sure if the billiard table comes with the place; maybe you could strike a deal for that and the exercise equipment.)

The Italian Renaissance style house designed by architect Axel S. Hedman is in the Park Slope Historic District. It has new windows, a new boiler, zoned a/c, and an overhauled electrical system.

Listed by Compass brokers Libby Ryan and Maria Ryan, the house is $4.75 million. Which is no sack of chicken feed, but there’s a lot here to appeal to the well-heeled buyer. Think they’ll get it? Like the house?
