Here’s a fine figure of a Park Slope brownstone, with choice details, modern updates and a prime Center Slope location. It’s at 258 Garfield Place, in the Park Slope Historic District and just over a block from Prospect Park.
It’s a big one, 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep, with a two-story extension in the rear. There are 4,600 square feet all told, split between a garden rental and an upper triplex.
Between the large proportions and the plentiful original detail it’s a pretty grand triplex. The four bedrooms are large, with plentiful closet space, and two are especially spacious, with fireplace mantels and bay windows.
There are quite a few mantels, in fact: eight of them, and they’re quite nice ones, with mirrors, carved mahogany and tiling. Other details include parquet floors, wainscoting, Lincrusta in the stairway, an entry mirror and bench, stained glass, wedding-cake plaster detailing, moldings and pocket doors.
There’s a graceful renovated kitchen, with vintage-looking upper cabinetry, quartz and butcher block countertops and a mantel between a pair of large windows with stained glass transoms.
The listing refers to a need for “cosmetic upgrades,” along with “superb bones,” though the need is not in evidence in the provided photos — everything appears to be in good condition.
Bathrooms are not pictured, and neither is a full view of the front parlor — although a photo does show what appears to be a key detail in it: a magnificent looking carved mantel with mint-green tile surrounded by wedding-cake plaster.
Listed by Alexander Maroni of Douglas Elliman, the house is asking $4.6 million. How’s it look to you?
