There’s a better-than-average-seeming new condo hidden inside this circa 1890 townhouse designed by architect and builder I.D. Reynolds & Son in the Park Slope Historic District Extension I. On the other hand, it’s so new and lacking in historic detail that it gives the impression it could be absolutely anywhere.
Not so with respect to the building envelope. 585 10th Street is a part of a row of five three-story red brick Renaissance Revival townhouses. It has rough-faced stone on the basement level and projecting double windows above with bracketed sills topped by incised lintels with bracketed hoods. Its molded cornice features rosettes, dentils, and modillions. According to the designation report, the cast-iron newel posts and stoop railings are original.
Located on the third floor of the three-unit walkup, apartment No. 3 has a simple, well designed kitchen and unobtrusive Runtal radiators. It’s a duplex with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three outdoor spaces.
The master suite is located above the third story on the penthouse level of the building, set back from the street and with terraces fore and aft. It also has a bathroom and walk-in closet.
The main level is not unlike a typical two-bedroom floor-through apartment, although it’s more spacious than average, with two bathrooms, a dressing room, balcony, four closets and laundry. The unit has central air and an additional storage unit in the building.
The u-shaped kitchen is open to the living space and has an integrated refrigerator, under-the-counter microwave, range hood that vents to the outside, a sleek pendant light and soapstone counters. The bathrooms are similar, with white cabinetry and marble tile and counters.
The listing claims more than 1,400 square feet, which is plenty of space, but the asking price of $2.350 million is potentially pushing at the upper end of the spectrum on a per square foot basis. (It works out to $1,658.43 per square foot, if our calculations are correct.) With only three units, financing could be challenging.
Monthly common charges are $484 and taxes are $509. Nadia Bartolucci, Rachel Altschuler, and Justin Edelstein of Douglas Elliman are handling the listing. Is the neighborhood worth all that?
