107 Saint John's Place
Charming beyond compare, this extraordinary jewel box dazzles with impeccably restored architectural detail and of-the-moment relevance, just blocks from Prospect Park. Residing in a landmarked part of the Slope and zoned as two family, the house is currently used as a single family residence, but could be reconverted into a one bedroom and owners triplex.
The modernized living spaces marry seamlessly with turn-of-the-century details and historic millwork. Mahogany pocket doors and carved fireplace mantels are given new life with stream-lined finishes in both the cook's kitchen and bathrooms of beautiful stone and tile; while traditional layouts are repurposed for a contemporary lifestyle. Tasteful modern fixtures, fittings, and wallcoverings bridge the gap between old and new.
Beyond the gracious entry vestibule reveals a sun-filled front parlor sitting room complete with butler's pantry, petite kitchenette, dumbwaiter, and formal dining room complete with dreamy wallcoverings and whimsical chandelier. Floor to ceiling pocket doors opens to the dramatic living room where 10-foot ceilings are accentuated by original moldings and sweeping doorways. There is a sweet deck for al fresco cocktails and stargazing that leads one down to the home's gardens. The centerpiece of the room is the wood-burning fireplace with its original carved marble mantel.
An enviable owner's suite commands the entire second floor, the larger of the two rooms is for sleeping complete with marble mantel and "jack and jill" marble spa bath with both soaking tub and stall shower complete with brass fixtures and fittings. The handsome sitting room and library with custom millwork, fireplace mantel, ample storage, and dressing room complete the suite.
Delightful kid's quarters reside on the top floor. Two ample bedrooms with dreamy light, artistic wall coverings, and terrific storage await. The "kids bath" with wall-covered ceiling, penny round flooring, clawfoot tub, and cast iron farm sink makes the for a perfect baht oasis for the kiddos. This floor is home to the laundry and "mud-room", a coveted feature for a hectic and growing household.
The impressive garden-level is bathed in natural light from the curtain wall of windows with garden vistas. This level is home to the media room and den and a traditional cook's kitchen. Custom millwork, a Viking 6 burner stove, integrated appliances, and an oversized farmhouse sink are just some of the kitchen's highlights. Open and airy, this space allows for casual dining and easy living. Indoor/outdoor living is a cinch in the warmer months with this classic and coveted brownstone layout.
This north Park Slope location delivers unbeatable access to both Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza. The Brooklyn Public Library, Museum and the Botanic Garden are just minutes away, and foodies will love the proximity to the Park Slope Food Coop and diverse local dining.
