Iconic and rare, 31 Prospect Park West is a historic three (3) or four (4) bedroom Townhouse reimagined for your sophisticated, modern lifestyle. Facing east to Prospect Park, with a semi-private driveway and private garage, 31 PPW was built in 1919 by Brooklyn architect W. J. McCarthy in neo-Federal style. 31 PPW features a unique, inviting entry through the landscaped front garden up three brick steps into a glass-enclosed vestibule and through a paned glass door framed with original floor-to-ceiling arched windows. We're ushered into a spacious new foyer, warmed by a dual gas and wood-burning fireplace with a fetching marble mantelpiece imported from France and framed by original trefoil windows. This impressive space, accented with reflective black faux-snakeskin wallpaper which fills the room with texture and light emanating from the walls and ceiling, has room for a baby grand piano. Defining the space is a custom pilaster and pier mirrored structure with a mirrored door revealing a large entry closet and, on the living room side, a hidden Seura flat screen entertainment system.

31 PPW's magnificent parlor floor has an open and flexible layout, with the living room flowing to a Chef's kitchen and dining room, all with new solid oak floors with radiant heat. There is a grand wet bar, complete with custom Ornare glass and wood cabinets that frame the Ann Sacks Nero Marquina Marble bar, sink, and incorporate a drinks refrigerator, a Bosch dishwasher, and a mirrored backsplash.

Beyond the expansive living room is the majestic Chef's kitchen featuring a professional five-burner Wolf cooktop with a water spigot, Best ventilation hood, two Wolf dual convection ovens, a second Bosch dishwasher, SubZero wine refrigerator, separate SubZero refrigerator, and SubZero freezer. The kitchen's centerpiece is the island wrapped with solid polished statuary marble slab with a waterfall edge, a large Rohl stainless steel sink, abundant storage, and comfortable seating for two. The island is lit from above by three vintage 1980's glass fixtures imported from Paris. The countertop and backsplash are exquisite solid polished statuary marble slabs. Custom Ornare glass and wood cabinets and drawers complete this elegant and functional Chef's kitchen.

An intimate dining room with floor-to-ceiling casement windows and French doors is primed for dinners with family and friends and leads out to the delightful rear garden. Through the French doors is a bluestone deck, which houses the hard-plumbed gas grill. Follow several steps down into a true oasis in the citya tranquil garden perfect for alfresco dining and summertime cocktail parties with a beautiful fountain, lush plantings, and ivy gracing the red brick private garage wall. Finally, the parlor floor has a delightful, private, fish-motif powder room with a glorious Kallista marble sink and Laura Kira Vir Stil console table with towel bar.

Ascending the newly refurbished staircase, we reach the second floor containing the expansive master suite, guest bedroom and bathroom, and full-size Electrolux washer/dryer. The master suite has been beautifully and comfortably designed with new casement windows, electric fireplace, designer lighting, new closets, and massive dressing room fully-appointed with custom Ornare closets. This closet can be returned to a fourth bedroom. The new spa master bathroom features a Waterworks Candide Freestanding oval cast iron bathtub for a luxurious soak below the Ann Sacks mosaic marble wall and glass chandelier. The spacious bathroom also contains a long custom Ornare vanity with statuary marble counter, Rohl fixtures, a separate private toilet, and stall shower. The colorful original stained-glass window has been rebuilt and double-paned.

Down the hallway is the generously-sized second bedroom with three windows overlooking Prospect Park. The renovated second bathroom, with its own wonderful refurbished stained-glass window, is appointed with statuary slab marble, marble cubed tiles, Rohl and Kallista fixtures.

We ascend to the third floor on a staircase bathed in light from the new skylight. On this floor is a lofty den/third bedroom with vaulted ceilings and second skylight that give this space, currently the den and office, an open, airy feeling, and a charming dormer window with a cozy window seat frames a view of Prospect Park. The third floor also contains a new full bathroom, large closet, and a spectacularly landscaped expansive roof deck. This bathroom has a large stall shower with a stained-glass window that opens to the roof deck and is appointed with marble subway tiles, basket-weave tile flooring, and Rohl fixtures.

From the third floor landing, oversized French doors open to the 600+ square foot roof retreat complete with a pergola and an irrigation system for the fabulous landscaping around the full perimeter of the space. Open to the sky and yet intimate and private, this deck is perfect for everything from quiet meditation to dining to entertaining family, friends, and colleagues.

This sumptuous home also contains a fully renovated and equipped basement featuring a complete home gym, renovated bathroom and sauna, impressive cedar closet, the primary laundry room with front-loading Frigidaire washer/ dryer, deep utility sink, and plentiful storage closets. The new utilities are housed in designated closets.
