Look no further for your next home. This Park Slope one-family townhouse is the paradigm of elegance and comfort, with absolutely no stone left unturned in the immaculate renovation and restoration commissioned by a private client and envisioned by Harper Design just four years ago. Situated perfectly between 5th and 6th avenues with easy access to incredible shops, restaurants, subways and schools, but offering the quiet and serenity of a tree-lined block with low density and handsome rows of brownstones up and down the block. In addition to a turnkey home with the perfect combination of original details and modern luxuries, there is also a spacious deck that leads down into a lush South-facing garden ready for entertaining, gardening and play time.
This is a home that needs to be seen in-person to be believed. Walls have been opened up throughout to create wider-than-expected light-filled spaces. With the addition of a penthouse on the top floor you will enjoy amazing space but with fewer stairs and more loft-like spaces throughout. There is even an unexpectedly renovated cellar space that the current owners use as a media and game room and offers great storage as well.
No expense was spared in this magnificent renovation from the radiant heat in the entire home, an 8-zone Mitsubishi AC system, a full-house indoor and outdoor speaker system, all new windows including historic bays, new wide-plank oak floors, new staircases throughout, in addition to a newly pointed façade, new sidewalk, newly done irrigated front and back gardens, and all new ironwork. This is the full transformation of a charming historic home into a triple-mint masterpiece as evidenced in the superior finishes that abound.
Head up the stoop to a light-filled parlor floor where a chefs kitchen awaits in addition to a generous and loft-like dining area and perfectly-scaled living room with a striking Mid-Century modern styled gaace and dramatic Moooi chandelier. The kitchen truly has it all including a vented Wolf Range and double oven, a paneled Sub-Zero fridge, fully custom white Shaker cabinetry throughout that includes a Haefele pull-out pantry, a utility closet, Caesarstone countertops, lush Ann Sacks backsplash tile, undercabinet lighting, farmhouse sink and an island with seating for four. This floor is flooded with southern light all day long through a curtain wall of glass and opens up to a perfectly placed steel and Ipe deck with ample space for a large dining table and planters. A steel staircase takes you right into the garden from this floor where you will enjoy high-end and easy maintenance Turf and a series of stunning planters juxtaposed against a modern Ipe privacy fence.
Head downstairs to a fully transformed garden level that is currently being used as a more casual living room complete with custom built-ins, a wet bar, easy access to the garden and amazing light through another wall that has been opened up with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. An additional bedroom and full bath on this floor makes the perfect nanny/guest suite or generous home-office with its own entrance. The floor right above the parlor accommodates two very generous bedrooms, each with ample closet space, a full bathroom, and a truly unexpected laundry room with TWO washers and TWO dryers, built-in hampers, Quartz countertops and a large utility sink. The oversized bath offers double Hansgrohe faucets, Corian countertops, separate toilet area, a super clever custom bench for toy storage, and Nemo concrete floor tile.
The top floor, added in the current renovation, offers a light-filled suite of epic proportions. In the front enjoy an oversized bedroom with a walkout to a large terrace with built-in speakers that overlooks the treetops and rooftops of the neighborhood. Head towards the back of this floor where you will be overtaken with joy at the site of an oversized and fully built-out dressing room with a sky-light, custom shoe and luggage storage, two built-in dressers with marble countertops, and loads of shelving and hanging space. The stunning spa-like bathroom includes a deep soaking tub, an oversized glass-enclosed shower, Arabesque Carrara marble tile, double sinks, towel warmers and loads of built-in storage.
