The owners, only the 3rd in the home's history, have meticulously maintained all of the charm and essence of this home while bringing it comfortably into the modern era. 568 1st St. is a neo-Italian Renaissance limestone built in 1910 for Louis Bonart and designed by architects Eisenla and Carlson. Located on a tree-lined park block this magnificent 20-foot wide limestone townhouse is one of the four 5-level majestic homes leading into Prospect Park.
The gracious layout with grand proportions has beautifully scaled rooms and includes 7 bedrooms and 3 full plus 2 half baths. An elegant double parlor moves gracefully into the formal dining room and opens to the south-facing kitchen which is the full width of the house. There is a thoughtfully designed powder room on the parlor level which is a 'must-have' in every home! The English basement has a large family room, with handsome built-in cubbies to organize life's everyday belongings, a media room for comfortable gatherings, and a large utility room with a huge side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, laundry, 3 wonderful original sinks and a half-bath. A mudroom provides access to the landscaped and irrigated south facing garden.
There is a full bath on each of the 3 bedroom levels, some with original hand-painted sinks gracefully surrounded by new marble vanities. 7 beautiful mantels adorn the home, one in the dining room and one in 6 of the 7 bedrooms.
This home encompasses approximately 5,770 square feet with extraordinary attention having been paid to create unsurpassed storage throughout.
