Located in the heart of South Slope and only half a block below vibrant Seventh Avenue, this lovingly maintained two-family brick row house boasts real Brooklyn charm. Up a short stoop, turn left, and you've entered the garden rental. With original pine floors, high ceilings and natural light, this apartment features a sunny living room, separate dining area, a retro-style kitchen, high ceilings and the serenity of birds chirping in the rear garden just below its bedroom windows. Back in the vestibule, go through the owner's doorway, and you're met by a late-19th-century staircase that leads you into the upper duplex, cooled with a new split air-conditioning system. The parlor floor is a blend of new and old: redone floors, kitchen and baths complement original crown moldings, decorative fireplaces and wainscoting. Three tall windows capture treetop views and allow warming light into the expansive living room. A separate center room makes the perfect study. Another vestige of the home's historic roots is the Victorian dining room with elegant patterned wallpaper and a fireplace with an oak over mantel. The spacious galley kitchen has luscious green granite counter tops, full-sized appliances and oak cabinetry lining both walls, the uppers with glass doors. There's a full bath on this floor for guests and your convenience. The third floor flows beautifully from a south-facing primary bedroom with a windowed side room, currently used as a California Closet-designed walk-in, to a center lounge/study/craft room, to a sizeable garden-facing second bedroom, and finally, a home office/nursery -- separate and serene. Another full bath is located on this floor. The basement has full-height ceilings, laundry and lots of opportunity for good clean storage. A well-maintained and landscaped rear garden measures 900 square feet! Below Seventh Avenue and only one and half blocks from bustling Fifth Avenue, the house is also proximal to Prospect Park and the F, R and G train lines. This quiet oasis affords you the opportunity for nature, commerce and entertainment -- and all the amenities that makes Park Slope a coveted destination. Whether you derive rental income from the garden level or choose to occupy all three glorious stories, this house is a perfect place to call "home."
