This North Slope brownstone, at 212 St. Johns Place, is stately, spacious and in stellar condition. It’s full of original detail that looks to have been beautifully maintained.
Exhibit A would be the beauteous parlor floor, with its vast pier mirror, bay windows, inlaid parquet floors and original woodwork. Note the wedding cake detailing on the walls and the two-tone paint schemes on the crown moldings.
The four-story home’s owner’s triplex has four bedrooms on top, two good-sized, two small — which could also be treated as dual suites, and maybe ought to be, as the only access to the smaller bedrooms is by walking through the larger. There are a pair of baths up there.
The kitchen, located in a rear extension, is an interesting one. Not sure when it might have gone in, but it extends the elegant feel with stained glass, rear bay windows, a fireplace and dark wood wainscoting. It’s a bit small, though, and will leave some buyers wanting more.
The master bedroom is on the third floor, along with a “library” in the front, which sports a fireplace, more bay windows and an office nook. There’s a washer and dryer up there as well.
The garden floor holds a two-bedroom apartment, with the kitchen in the same rear extension. The garden itself isn’t pictured, but it’s accessible from the triplex via a rear deck.
Location is favorable, near Prospect Park and the B/Q and 2/3 trains at 7th Avenue and Grand Army Plaza, respectively.
