This duplex condo, in a four-story townhouse just outside the Park Slope Historic District at 415 4th Street, appears to be in excellent condition with many original details and no lack of space, but it is only a legal one-bedroom.
It’s set up with eat-in kitchen, living room, formal dining room and bedroom all on one floor, with a private backyard. The unit would be a three-bedroom, two bathroom home but for the fact that two of the bedrooms are in a lower level that is not legal living space, as the listing makes clear.
In addition to some fairly impressive Beaux Arts-era details, the home has some decidedly modern updates and flashes of patterned wallpaper.
A parlor, currently in use as a formal dining room, features wood wainscoting, columns, and a burled-oak mantel. A similarly detailed living room has another impressive burled-oak piece, in this case a pier mirror with columns, as well as wood paneling and parquet floors.
The kitchen is modern and somewhat minimalist, in contrast to the other rooms, with gray and white lacquer cabinetry, an island with room for seating, a Sub-Zero fridge, and room for a dining table.
Sliding glass doors lead out the garden, which has a bluestone patio with landscaped planters and an irrigation system.
Jutting out into the backyard and also on this level is a small bedroom with closet and full bath — the unit’s only legal room for sleeping.
Downstairs in the finished cellar are two large recreation rooms, a sunken terrace, two walk-in closets and a bevy of other storage spaces, a washer-dryer and another full bathroom. None of the bathrooms are pictured.
In another section of the cellar accessible to the whole building are mechanicals and shared storage.
The building has central air conditioning and heating (apparently forced air) throughout. The building’s roof, gutters and mechanicals have all been recently updated, according to the listing.
The building is 5.5 blocks from the 7th Avenue F and G station and 2.5 blocks from Prospect Park.
Brown Harris Stevens’ Eileen Richter has the listing, which is asking $2.25 million. Common charges are $686 and taxes are $529 a month. What do you think?
