Located on one of Park Slope's most enchanting blocks, this utterly charming two-family townhouse features lovely architectural details and multiple outdoor spaces, just two blocks from Prospect Park. A classic high-stoop entry and beautiful stained glass windows welcome you into the parlor floor, the first level of the expansive owner's triplex. Here, ornate moldings highlight 11-foot-tall ceilings, and gorgeous inlaid floors run underfoot. Bold enframements conceal grand pocket doors that separate the spacious and open living room from the dining room, each equipped with handsome decorative fireplaces and ceiling fans. The bright windowed kitchen is placed conveniently off the dining room, and French doors open to a deck, providing the perfect space for al fresco meals or an evening drink. A spiral staircase leads to the brick patio and private garden below where mature landscaping, a flowering dogwood tree and potted plants create a wonderful urban oasis. On the floor above, up the beautifully-carved staircase, discover two generous sized second-floor bedrooms with built-in shutters and deco fireplaces. The front bedroom features stained glass windows, while the rear bedroom boasts garden views and a large alcove, ideal as a home office. In between, a spacious skylit bathroom is trimmed in Jerusalem Gold limestone with radiant heat floors, a large tub, Toto toilet and Dornbracht fixtures. Enjoy fantastic closet space on the top floor, where you'll find a modern bathroom with limestone floors, Steamist steam shower, open marble vanity and Toto toilet, plus its own dedicated hot water heater. You will find two rear bedrooms on this floor , one opening to a spacious 100-square-foot terrace with leafy patio views. The garden-level, one-bedroom apartment ? perfect for rental, multigenerational use or easy conversion to single-family living space ? includes a spacious living room, updated kitchen, thermal windows, separate heating unit, and direct access to the rear yard. This well-maintained townhouse features up to date mechanicals, including gas-powered forced air heater and hot water heater, updated electrical and plumbing, restored millwork, copper gutters, blow-in insulation and fire-rated sheetrock above the main unit kitchen. The full basement and under-stoop closet provide excellent storage. A forecourt garden and ornate façade complete this exceptional Park Slope residence. 17 Polhemus Place is a handsome Romanesque Revival home constructed from Roman brick and stone in the mid-1890s. From this special Brooklyn block, you'll enjoy easy access to Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Public Library, Museum and Botanic Garden. Great shopping, restaurants and the Park Slope Food Coop are nearby, and access to transportation is superb with B, Q/R, 2/3 and F/G trains, excellent bus service and CitiBikes within reach.
