House of the Day: 552 1st Street


This Park Slope single family is all grand 1905 limestone in the front, zen contemporary in the rear. It’s 21 feet wide with at least one wood burning fireplace and all the moldings, herringbone floors and other Renaissance Revival details you could want.

A 2012 renovation by architect firm Khanna Schultz added a “glass pavilion,” aka the kitchen, with radiant floor heating, a skylight, a Fisher & Paykel double drawer dish washer, and motorized blinds. “Conceptually, the kitchen was thought of as part of the Zen like garden, with a stone floor and glass walls providing continuity with the space outside,” says the listing.

There is also a cedar closet and a spa bathroom with porcelain tile and stone floor and counters, although no floor plan. A screening room, rec room and laundry are located in the English basement. The mechanicals are new and include central air and a Weil McClain heater.

There are three open houses scheduled this week. What do you think of it and the ask of $4,875,000?
