Fully furnished, fully renovated brownstone for rent on Park Slope's bucolic 6th Ave! You and your pets don't need to bring anything but your suitcase to be at home in this luxurious single-family townhouse.
165 6th Ave is a 6 bedroom/3.5 bathroom, 4-story, 20ft wide townhouse with two working wood burning fireplaces, nestled between Lincoln and St Johns Pl on a beautiful, residential tree-lined street. Custom renovations throughout convey the notion of an untouched prewar home, but are in fact ingenious updates to provide ample built-in storage, increase natural light, and amplify the original architectural splendor.
The owners perfectly renovated the home for the modern user's needs. The parlor floor's grandiose ceiling heights, decorative moldings, arched doorways, marble mantles and a gilded pier mirror are highlights in the front parlor living/dining room, an open concept space for entertaining. The fireplace in this front parlor is wood burning. There is a proper foyer for dropping off your winter boots, with a coat closet and powder room just off the staircase. This floor features a magazine-worthy kitchen, a breakfast room in a small extension, and a sunny deck with a full dining set and grill, with steps down to the lush garden.
This kitchen is any cook's dream. Sunlight and leafy garden views stream in over the custom 6-seater island and decorative marble fireplace. An ultra-luxurious LaCanche double oven with 6 burners and a griddle is prominently displayed under an arch with corbels, along with a stunning custom vent hood, chic European tiles and a pot-filler! The fridge and dishwasher are top-of-the-line Miele, and there is an undercounter drawer microwave and freezer. The custom kitchen's decorative moldings, cabinetry, and wrap-around built-ins all seamlessly blend and provide for incredible amounts of storage, some to be hidden, some to be displayed behind glass.
Upstairs is the primary floor. The king-sized bedroom is in the rear, where windows with refurbished shutters open onto the garden below. An ensuite, windowed bathroom features a standing clawfoot tub, a separate glass-enclosed shower, a decorative fireplace, and a double vanity. The custom closet features a dressing room and enough storage for two. The landing was ingeniously designed, replete with built-ins to house books and family photos, and with custom stained glass transoms surrounding to allow light through. The front room on this floor houses a large office/den, with more built-ins for books, a wood-burning marble fireplace, a work station, and a giant sectional for cuddling up with a book or to watch television.
On the top floor, where sunlight streams in from a skylight, are four bedrooms (one currently used as a home gym) and a renovated bathroom with laundry.
The garden level features a massive bedroom, ideal for guests, au pairs, long-term visitors, etc, along with a large den/playroom, a newly renovated full bathroom, hidden storage, and a mudroom leading out to the garden. The garden is paved, with lush plantings surrounding it, to allow for the feeling of a secret garden while minimizing maintenance. The owners have both a basketball net and a swing set.
You don't need to bring anything other than your toothbrush to be fully moved in to this idyllic Park Slope brownstone. Fully furnished, pet friendly, and ideally located, this will be your easiest move. Nestled in North Slope, you are close to the 2/3/B/Q trains and the shopping along 5th and 7th Avenues, while living on quiet and residential 6th Ave. Prospect Park and its Saturday Farmers Market are moments away, and just two blocks south is the original Union Market for all your grocery needs and Milk Bar, a charming Australian cafe.
