Description:

522 8th St sits among a row of masterfully-designed limestone homes, which were built at the turn of the century by renowned architect Benjamin Dreisler. It has remained in the same family for over half a century and from the moment you enter you can feel that this home has been well loved and well lived in. Beautiful original details have been thoughtfully preserved, including: artisan plaster work, wainscotting, impressively carved newel posts and balusters and hardwood floors with intricate rosewood detail. Oversized bay windows, soaring ceilings and clean sight lines stretching its full 48-foot depth allow sunshine to spill into every corner of this magnificent home.

The stunning parlor floor is bright, fresh, open and airy and features an elegant double parlor, a full bath, an office and a sun-filled dining room. Head upstairs and there's room to spare in the spacious 3rd- floor bedroom suites, complete with dressing rooms, studies and another full bath. Each room is generously proportioned and has its own distinctive architectural style and character. There is currently a windowed kitchen on this level, which could easily be converted to an ensuite bath.

The garden level opens into a lovely foyer with French Doors leading to another living room. It features exquisite plaster detail and bay windows. There is a HUGE eat-in kitchen with a country, farm-house feel. This enormous, sunny and cheerful space is a clean blank slate to customize to your taste. It steps out to a beautifully landscaped south-facing garden overflowing with lush plantings, perennials, meadow-like florals, herbs, berries, grape vines, figs and shade trees. Also on this level is a half-bath and a charming bedroom.

522 8th St is nestled on one of the Slope’s most coveted blocks between PPW and 8th Ave. Perennially mentioned as one of the “Greenest Blocks” in Brownstone Brooklyn, 8th St is peaceful and leafy and feels like you’re entering an Edith Wharton novel. It’s known for its stately homes, gas-lit street lamps and century-old trees. You’re steps away from Prospect Park, which offers miles of running and cycling trails, a newly renovated 32,000 sq ft skating rink, playgrounds and tennis courts. You’re close to all of the neighborhood’s destination shops, cafes, theatres and restaurants including Pasta Louise, Casa Azul, Ample Hills and the Nitehawk Theatre.

Currently configured as a 2-family, it could easily be converted to a grand single family masterpiece. With its flexible floor plan, extra-large width and depth, generously-sized rooms, stunning light, additional buildable space and solid structure there are endless possibilities to custom design the home of your dreams (see alternate floor plans). Showings start immediately! Don’t miss this rare opportunity.
