A lovely townhome with a brilliant sunroom and sprawling garden - 179 Garfield Place
With a blindingly bright sunroom and deep garden, 179 Garfield Place absolutely enthralls. A 2 Family currently being used as a single, it's located on one of Park Slope's most coveted, tree-lined streets. Set on a 150' deep lot (that's why the yard is so huge) everything is set up to create an oasis of solitude.
This 4 bedroom, 3 bath Brownstone has many modern updates that have combined with Old World details to create a truly unique home. The garden level has the original front dining room intact with parquet flooring and period stylings of the day. A modern eat-in-kitchen, with hardwood cabinets complimenting the original design, features a Sub Zero Refrigerator, double ovens and plenty of counter space for creating large family meals. Through the kitchen is the real gem of the house: a Sunroom with a soaring glass ceiling and retractable shades that allows light and air to flow through the space. A full wall of French Doors invites you out to the brick patio and the leafy, flowered garden beyond. An updated full bath completes this level. The parlor level, maintaining all its original charm, has been very well cared for over the years. The front sitting room showcases high ceilings with plaster medallions, and multi-level Crown moldings. Two large windows are framed in oversized casings with tall pediments. A pair of etched glass pocket doors lead to the music room beyond with more of the same stylings. Everything looks and feels solid and level - that's due to the brick arch foundation in the finished basement, providing a strong foundation for all this beauty to stand on.
The top two floors have more of the same, with the entire top floor serving as a Master Suite. A bright and secluded King-sized bedroom is in the back overlooking the garden. A hallway lined with floor to ceiling closets leads to the front library/study where three windows afford glorious views of the tree-tops outside. There's ample room for a sitting area and office, making it a perfect work from home option! A full bath with skylight is here as well. The second floor, with its own 2 bedrooms and full bath, has a second laundry (there's one in the finished basement as well!) for your convenience.
As mentioned, the location is ideal - right in the middle of Park Slope. Everything PS is noted for is at your feet: World class dining (Al Di La, Negril, Miti Miti, the list goes on), culture (Brooklyn Music Conservatory, Spoke the Hub) outdoor spaces (Prospect Park, JJ Byrne Park/Playground) and shopping (PS Food Coop, Union Market plus many boutique shops) are all in a 5 block radius. Currently zoned for PS 321, you are also near to 6 major subway lines and a short stroll to the Barclay Center for major sporting and entertainment events.
Truly a home for all seasons, it needs to be experienced to be appreciated. Initial in person showing are to be held Sunday, May 16th. Call or email for a time!
