Description:

History, character, and modern elegance envelope you in this magnificently restored and renovated 4-story, 21'-wide townhouse on a premier tree-lined block, moments from Prospect Park! Idyllically located in Park Slope's coveted Historic District, the handsome south-facing neo-Renaissance limestone gem was designed by George Miller in 1909, completely gut-renovated by Sam Trimble in 2013, and thoughtfully updated by current owners since 2018. Boasting 5/6 bedrooms and gracious living space, the awe-inspiring home was impeccably reimagined with a contemporary layout for easy living and entertaining, brimming with refined luxury finishes and exquisite original details throughout. In addition to cosmetic enhancements, recent upgrades include refinishing the original wood flooring and paneling, adding new marble countertops, and state-of-the-art HVAC systems for comfort all year round. Topping the allure is a large, lovely private garden, and 3rd floor terrace for enjoying the outdoors. A front patio greets your arrival, with a stately stoop to an inviting entry foyer leading you inside. The parlor floor is a place of beauty and comfortable setting for hosting and lounging. A spacious bay-windowed living room with gas fireplace flows into a central sitting room with a grand mahogany-clad main staircase. Beyond is an airy dining room behind pocket doors featuring a wood-paneled wall, coffered ceiling, and bay window with stained glass. The open chef's kitchen that sits beside it is sleek and stunning, offering abundant cabinetry, professional stainless steel appliances, built-in fridge, extensive counters, center island, built-in storage, and sunny breakfast room for morning coffee and casual fare.Ascend the staircase wrapped in rich mahogany wainscoting to the 2nd story, reserved for the fabulous primary suite. Relax in the tranquil king-size bedroom lined with closets or on your private terrace; refresh in the incredible spa bath with dual sinks, oval soaking tub and oversized steam shower; work remotely or read in the light-filled front office/study with walls of built-in bookshelves. The top level presents 3 additional bedrooms, 2 with en-suite baths, plus a washer-dryer.The garden floor is accessible from both the interior and exterior of the house. Here you'll find a mudroom with closets, guest suite with full bath, long hall with closets, powder room, amazing wine cellar, huge storage room, den, and laundry room. Step outside to the backyard oasis with a magnolia tree for summer parties, barbecues, alfresco dining and gardening. This special residence is truly a rare jewel, with Prospect Park a few doors away and close proximity to the best neighborhood shops, restaurants and attractions!
