It’s on the pricey side, but this Park Slope two-bedroom has some photogenic details, in-unit laundry and a location on a block of brownstone-filled Berkeley Place, near Prospect Park.
The apartment takes up the parlor level of 138 Berkeley Place, a circa 1882 Neo-Grec in the Park Slope Historic District. The brownstone, designed by Frederick E. Lockwood, is one of seven houses originally built to house three families.
A floor-through, the unit has a living room at the front, a kitchen in the middle and two bedrooms facing the garden at the rear. There’s original woodwork, including a mantel, fretwork and moldings, all painted white, along with wood floors. Pocket doors separate the living room from the dining room which has a passthrough to the kitchen.
The wood floors continue into the kitchen which has a wall of exposed brick painted white along with white cabinets, butcher block countertops and a dishwasher. A counter stretched across the passthrough is large enough to accommodate a couple of stools.
A hallway stretches back to the bedrooms and it includes a closet, a bathroom and a full laundry room, complete with a slop sink. The largest bedroom has two windows, a wall of exposed brick and pocket doors opening to a dressing room with a wall of closets. The smaller bedroom has built-in bookshelves, wainscoting and a white wall of exposed brick. The current tenant has it set up as a home office.
According to the listing, the building is pet friendly and guarantors are allowed. The no-fee unit is listed with Siim M. Hanja and Rudi Hanja of Brown Harris Stevens and priced at $4,750 a month. Worth the ask?
