A combination of opulent and cozy, 280 Garfield represents the best of Park Slope townhouse living. This Renaissance Revival brownstone boasts over 4600 square feet of living space, lush original details, and an incredible location off of Prospect Park West.
The house is currently configured as a 2-family, with a income-producing 2-bedroom garden rental and three floors of main living above. The L-shaped brownstone stoop leads you to a grand foyer, from which you can enter the front parlor with gracious bay windows overlooking Garfield Place.
The foyer also leads to a center parlor, featuring a gorgeous original mantle, built-in bookcases, and the piece de resistance: the show-stopping early-20th century mahogany staircase. A sweet powder room is discretely tucked beneath the stairs. Both front and center parlors feature crown molding with intricate plasterwork.
The formal dining room, featuring eye catching coffered ceilings, is an entertainer's delight, with enough space for an 8-12 person dining table and a bay window overlooking the south-facing garden. This leads to a modern eat-in kitchen extension done in a tastefully traditional style. The owners installed a split AC system in this room in addition to a chef's kitchen suite of appliances and a chic built-in banquette in a rear-facing bay window. A door from the kitchen allows easy access to the garden below. There is also a large, walk-in pantry off the kitchen.
Up the stairs are two massive bedrooms, one currently outfitted as a library, with walk-through closets and marble vanities connecting them. This floor features a cozy hall reading nook under a canopy of mahogany filigree, and a full bath with stained glass. On the top floor are two additional bedrooms of generous proportions, an officeursery, and a connecting den. Another full bath and a laundry closet are on this floor as well. Original fireplace mantles, bay windows and herringbone hardwood floors feature throughout these floors.
