Less than one block from Prospect Park, this single-family limestone appears to be in great shape, with original details, modern conveniences and plenty of space. The row house at 589 3rd Street in the Park Slope Historic District was built in 1911 and designed by architect firm Eisenla & Carlson in the neo-Italian Renaissance style.
The stone exterior is quite modern for its time and features asymmetrical windows and carved panels. Inside, most of the woodwork has been painted white, with some splashes of color. The slightly elevated main floor has an entry vestibule, living room, dining room and kitchen.
The walls originally dividing the front parlor, middle parlor/stair hall, and entry hallway have been removed to create an exceptionally large living room with a staircase, modern fireplace and parquet with fancy inlaid borders.
The adjacent paneled dining room has some fun features: a bold mantel with a hood and original tile, a colorful coffered ceiling and a bay with a window seat.
At the rear, the pleasant eat-in kitchen has windows on two exposures, white Shaker style cupboards and stainless steel and marble counters. Stairs lead out to the small backyard and down to the English basement.
Upstairs are two luxuriously spacious bedroom floors, with six bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and an abundance of closets. The bedrooms have parquet and original moldings, and one of the bedrooms is currently set up as a media room.
The bathrooms are recently updated in classic New York City style with finishes such as white hex tile floors, white subway tile and bead board walls, and pedestal sinks. One of the baths has zippy black and white striped mosaic tile on the walls.
In the slightly raised cellar is a second refrigerator and kitchen storage, a laundry room, powder room, recreation room currently set up as a gym, and mechanicals. The house has two-zoned air conditioning.
The paved backyard has a gas grill and outdoor projector screen, according to the listing. The front yard is landscaped with a tree and greenery.
Listed by Janice Cimberg and Michael Petrosino of Halstead/Brown Harris Stevens, the limestone is asking $4.35 million. It last sold in 2007 for $3.5 million. What do you think?
