548 2nd Street is a magnificent 20' wide, 1891-built Romanesque Revival townhouse fresh off of an expert, multi-year renovation helmed by prominent local architect SYA Architecture & Interiors. Just over one block to Prospect Park on the south side of one of Park Slope's most sought after streets, the spectacular reimagining of this residence seamlessly blends the home's exceedingly special prewar character with every imaginable modern luxury.

Currently used as a sprawling single family home, this modern masterpiece now features three-zone central air conditioning, fully updated plumbing and electric, new mechanicals, spectacular new bathrooms, a gorgeous new kitchen, noteworthy layout alterations, a whole house water filtration system, new windows, CAT5 wiring throughout and an entirely redesigned and gut-renovated garden floor - which is now a massive media room, play room and gym - all while meticulously preserving the home's important historic character.

Enter the bright parlor floor to find soaring, nearly 11' ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, original pocket doors, original wooden window shutters and striking herringbone-patterned hardwood floors. The moldings remain beautifully intact, as do the original stained glass transoms over the front windows. The front parlor is currently used as an elegant formal living room. Meanwhile, the rear parlor houses an enormous dining room and the renovated, windowed kitchen featuring black stainless steel appliances, white subway tiled backsplash, sleek Caeserstone countertops and massive amounts of storage.

Just beyond the kitchen, exit the sliding glass doors to find an absolutely stunning, south-facing full-width deck and flawlessly landscaped garden. The deck is partially shaded by a swoon-worthy wisteria winding its way around the trellis above. Descending into the 45' deep garden, you'll find additional room to roam, grill, dine and relax while surrounded by perfectly landscaped raised mulch beds and shaded by a truly gorgeous dogwood tree.

Back downstairs to the garden level, what was once a modest one bedroom apartment has been completely reimagined into a luxurious full-floor leisure space. White-washed exposed brick frames the media room which leads to the oversized play room. Just beyond the play room is a fully equipped home gym with south-facing views onto the garden. Completing the garden level is a brand new, full bathroom with striking tiled and radiant heated floors and a top-of-the-line Steamist Shower system featuring built-in Bluetooth speakers, colored lighting and several scented essential oils from which to choose.

Just above the parlor level lies the full-floor primary suite. The endlessly elegant primary bedroom looks out onto the garden and comes replete with a fully customized, enormous walk-in-closet/dressing room and a wonderfully luxurious, totally renovated windowed bathroom with tiled and radiant heated floors and a separate exterior vanity. Down the hall, you'll find a massive north-facing room which is currently used as a library/office with three windows and built-in bookshelves aplenty.

Ascending the stairs to the top floor, light streams in from the intricate stained glass skylight above. On this level lies three bedrooms, two additional oversized walk-in-closets, another completely renovated bathroom featuring gorgeously tiled and radiant heated floors yet again, along with a deep soaking tub and double vanity. Completing the picture on the top floor is perhaps the most welcoming laundry room in all of Brooklyn.

Perfectly located, expertly renovated; 548 2nd Street is as desirable of a home as exists in the highly sought after Park Slope townhouse market today.
