On one of north Park Slope's loveliest blocks sits this exquisitely renovated, 20-foot wide, two- family, four-story brownstone. Suffused with light and featuring bucolic views over rolling brownstone gardens, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home comes with a garden-floor apartment perfect for guests or additional living quarters.
With its graceful proportions, this landmarked 1874 Italianate brownstone has been renovated over the past two years by noted Brooklyn architect Kimberly Neuhaus. With four fireplaces (two wood-burning, two gas-burning), an elegant staircase, grand-scale arched doorways and expansive ceiling heights, the home lends itself just as easily to formal entertaining as to a laid-back lifestyle.
Enter the ground-floor apartment through a separate entrance. The apartment, with a front-facing bedroom, a compact galley kitchen and a full bathroom, easily integrates into a single-family home. On the garden-facing side of this floor, a yoga room features slate floors with radiant heating. This room opens up to a lush backyard, landscaped by M.U.D. Design with bluestone pavers and a picturesque Magnolia tree.
Access the parlor level from the recently rebuilt stoop. From the parlor, ideal for formal entertaining, enter through etched-glass pocket doors to the kitchen, designed to the specifications of a professional chef. Kitchen finishes include custom bamboo cabinetry, a 39" Lacanche range, Viking refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Sub-Zero wine refrigerator and Quartzite countertops. From the kitchen, step outside to the terrace for al-fresco dining while enjoying views the garden.
On the master level, both the bedroom and the adjoining lounge (or additional bedroom) feature gas burning fireplaces. A passageway between the bedroom and lounge features two built-in desks and extra storage space. From the oversized soaking tub in the bathroom, enjoy views of the sloping gardens below.
On the top floor, both bedrooms feature wall panels and built-in bookcases in American walnut. Bathroom finishes includes marble tiles and radiant stone floors.
Located only 20 minutes from Manhattan and within a short distance from three major subway stops, 167 6th Avenue offers proximity to shopping and dining on 5th and 7th Avenues, recreation in nearby Prospect Park and sports and entertainment at the neighboring Barclays Center.
