PRIME PARK SLOPE, ONE BLOCK TO PARK & SUBWAYS, 3 MASSIVE BEDROOMS, LARGE PRIVATE YARD, TRULY UNIQUE & HISTORIC PROPERTY WITH EVERY LUXURY! Finally the opportunity has arrived to make one of Park Slope's most renowned architectural treasures your new home. This striking Neo-Classical mansion, complete with an elevator, on 8th avenue between President and Carroll Streets, is now home to seven spectacular residences that offer easy and elegant living and massive proportions that far exceed the more vertical lifestyle of the neighboring brownstones. Conveniently situated one block to Prospect Park, a short jaunt to the 2,3,Q and B express trains at Grand Army Plaza, the Greenmarket, and the world class Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Gardens make this the perfect location to call home. Exceptional in size and character, Unit 1 is 2650 SF with 2.5 baths on the parlor and second floor of this magnificent property. Luxuriate under 12' ceilings, enjoy an 8' marble mantle surrounding a wood burning fireplace, impeccably restored wood paneling, a staircase of true grandeur, and three ornate bedrooms the scale of which you have never seen in a condo or townhouse (easily divisible into extra home office space if required).
Enjoy all of the luxuries of new construction but the warmth and hand-crafted originality of a truly special turn-of-the century masterpiece. Multi-zone heating and cooling, updated plumbing and electric, and all new bathrooms and kitchens await, surrounded in the opulence of old-world historic details including stunning wood floors, high ceilings, stained glass, oversized windows, and dramatic moldings throughout. This is not your average condo, but rather a rare opportunity for a buyer that desires a truly special home with generous living proportions, museum quality opulence and the comforts of 21st century living. Enter the main floor into an incredibly dramatic living and dining space with an elegant powder room. A few stairs take you up to a large eat-in windowed kitchen with a walkout to a deck and a staircase to a large private garden with both planting and bluestone areas, perfect for a rich outdoor life. The upstairs offers three bedrooms dripping in historic detail. The Primary bedroom offers an ensuite bath with old world charm and a huge walk-in closet. The second and third bedrooms share a full bath and are of an unprecedented size, easily turned into 4 bedrooms should that be your need.
The Chef's kitchen has been equipped with a suite of professional appliances including Sub-Zero, Bosch and Wolf. Gleaming white quartz countertops offer loads of prep space, and painted white custom cabinetry offers fantastic storage and pantry space. Spacious bathrooms have been designed throughout to work seamlessly with the original character of the home and include Carrara marble tile and white vanities with great storage. Large closets and unexpected nooks and crannies offer the extra space of a townhouse but better functionality, more expansive and dramatic rooms, and less stairs than the typical neighboring townhouses. Centrally located to world-class dining, public and private schools, greenspaces, and recreational and cultural institutions in every direction. There is even a parking garage one block away.
