Here’s a grand brownstone that doesn’t look a whole lot different than it did a century ago, give or take the kitchens and baths. Built in 1903 by architect Benjamin Driesler, it’s a Renaissance Revival with a bowed front bay at 616 2nd Street, in the Park Slope Historic District and half a block from Prospect Park.

There’s a load of well-preserved detail in this one — stained glass windows, wainscoting, six mantels, parquet floors, pocket doors and much original woodwork. And mirrors — 14 of them, according to the listing, including a giant columned pier mirror in the front parlor.

The rear parlor (or “library”) is quite the showpiece, with leaded glass cabinets, a coffered wooden ceiling, wood paneling, pocket doors and stained glass. Other nice touches include an inglenook on the second floor landing with an unusual fireplace and bench seating and a pass-through with original marble sinks and wooden cabinetry.

There’s even original tile in one of the baths, which sports a stained-glass window and a Jacuzzi tub that we’re pretty sure wasn’t there in 1903. There’s a nice understated kitchen with a bit of a farmhouse feel, with open wood shelves and an island with what looks like a concrete countertop.

It’s a one-family, with the kitchen on the garden level and five bedrooms on the upper floors. There’s a laundry room on the garden level and a butler’s pantry off the rear parlor. Don’t know what the yard looks like, but everything pictured looks to be in top shape.

Jim Winters of Compass has the listing; the ask is $3.9 million. How’s it look to you?
