Here’s a condo in the Park Slope Historic District that’s less than half a block away from Prospect Park. The building, located at 567 8th Street, is one of a row of Beaux-Arts apartment houses built in 1909 and designed by Arthur Koch.
It’s on the top floor, which would be ideal except for the fact that it’s a four-story walkup. But otherwise, the unit is a true two-bedroom with 9.5-foot ceilings (the ceilings appear much lower in the photos), a dining room and a double parlor.
Triple bay windows and a pier mirror can be found in one part of the double parlor, which could be put to use as a third bedroom if necessary. There’s a columned fretwork divider separating the two parlors, and inlaid hardwood floors can be found here and in the dining room.
Speaking of the dining room, it’s in the rear of the unit and is quite lovely, with paneling and a coffered ceiling. The huge eat-in kitchen looks recently updated and is divided in half by a counter with plenty of cabinet space both above and below. Plus, there’s a nook with a washer and dryer.
Off the hall are the two bedrooms, both with a single window, a closet and room for a king-sized bed. The unit’s single bathroom, which has a tub and tiled floor, is between the bedrooms.
The pet-friendly walk-up building has eight units and stained glass windows on every landing, according to the listing — compensating, we suppose, for the lack of an elevator.
The monthly common charges include access to the common bike storage and a gym. There’s additional private storage available in the basement. Steps away from Prospect Park, the building is two blocks from the 7th Avenue F and G train station.
Danielle Lurie, Molly Gyllenhaal, Zsuzsanna Bircsak and Lindsay Proud of Compass have the listing, which is asking $1.575 million, with an additional $538 in monthly common charges and $320 in tax. Do you think it’ll get its ask?
