Our airy, sun-drenched house, with Victorian, as well as Arts and Crafts touches, is a stunner. Located on at a highly-coveted address in the heart of Park Slope, it is filled with books, Oriental rugs, heirloom china and folk art from exotic foreign travel. Other details include: original parquet floors, stained glass, wood paneling, mosaic tile, and Stickley furniture. All three stories are available for your use – it is a single-family home with no tenant apartments.
The first floor has a double-parlor living room; formal dining room; renovated cook’s kitchen with high-end appliances and a skylight. A door off the kitchen opens onto a small deck with a gas grill and stairs that lead down to a charming, manicured garden. (Note: there is no bathroom or powder room on the parlor floor.) This floor is completely cooled by two ductless air-conditioning units.
On the second floor are two large home offices and a renovated designer bathroom with tub/shower. One of the offices has a convertible queen-sized sleep sofa, so it can be used as an extra bedroom. The layout of the second office leaves plenty of room for a queen-size inflatable bed. With these two rooms doubling as bedrooms, the house can sleep up to eight people. Each office has a window air-conditioning unit and a ceiling fan.
The third floor has two large bedrooms (one facing the front of the house and the other facing the rear, for maximum privacy), each with a queen-sized bed. There is also a renovated marble bathroom with double vanity, custom-made oak built-ins, a skylight, huge combination tub/shower, and separate toilet chamber. Each bedroom has a window air-conditioning unit and a ceiling fan.
Distinct from these three floors, on the lowest level of the house, is an English basement with a laundry room that has separate washer and dryer.
Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the house. Wired Ethernet is available in both second-floor offices and in the third-floor rear bedroom.
Owned by a respected writer and her entrepreneur husband. We will be available to you by phone and e-mail 24/7.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 1998
A great value compared to other housing options in Brooklyn or Manhattan. We raised a child and have run two successful home-based businesses in this house, while enjoying Prospect Park just steps away. It's the perfect setup for visiting professors, academics on sabbatical or professionals on temporary assignment in New York.
All three stories are available for your use – it is a single-family home with no tenant apartments.
Orientation: Located steps from Prospect Park, Frederick Law Olmsted’s magnum opus (he also designed Central Park), with its leafy walkways and bike paths. Seventh Avenue, the main shopping area, with abundant stores, restaurants and services, is three blocks away. The house is also walking distance to Grand Army Plaza, where there is a year-round Saturday farmer’s market and the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Walk another 10 minutes, and you arrive at the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Gardens. We are one subway stop, or a 30-minute walk, to the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Transportation: The area is served by six different subway lines that go into Manhattan and further into Brooklyn. We are a 7-minute walk to the F/G train 7th Avenue station; a 15-minute walk to Grand Army Plaza station where you can catch the 2 or 3 train; a 15-minute walk to the 7th Avenue/Flatbush Avenue stop on the Q or B train. By car or taxi it’s a 45-minute ride to JFK airport; 30 minutes to La Guardia.
On-street parking is available, though you really don't need a car. Several rental car companies have branches nearby. Or, you can travel like a native and avail yourself of Brooklyn’s many bike paths.
