A rare opportunity to buy half of a historic brownstone in prime Park Slope; a condo at that! This special parlor floor duplex with a private entrance offers two bedrooms, plus a home office, and one bath with the perfect blend of classic pre-war character and contemporary splendor. No detail was overlooked in this recent renovation with a painstakingly meticulous restoration of original pre-war details, upgrades in lighting and appliances, and a fresh, clean feel throughout. With an intuitive flow and a personality all its own, this townhouse residence offers light-filled interiors, high ceilings, crown moldings, unique built-ins and beautiful hardwood floors throughout.
Framed for ultimate privacy, this top unit enjoys a teardrop double-arched doorway on the parlor floor with an elegant foyer and gallery wall; this is where the awe and sophistication unfold. Ideally suited for entertaining, the main floor boasts an open concept plan with a formal living room, dining room and open chef's kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances, abundant cabinetry and a separate washer/dryer.
Ascend the stately staircase to the open and airy top floor with a split two-bedroom configuration and stunning skylight adding to the light-filled rooms throughout. Generously-proportioned bedrooms offer a tranquil space complimented by decorative fireplaces with original mantels, abundant closet space and large windows. The enormous bathroom has brand new flooring, a soak-in tub and classic finishes. A perfect home office with a built-in desk, office storage and abundant shelving complete this well-considered floorplan.
The famed historic brownstone was captured in the 1970 Hal Ashby comedy drama film, “The Landlord”, which adds to the block's rich history and spirit. Ideally situated on a tree-lined Park Slope block and close a vibrant mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and culture, 51 Prospect Place is an easy commute to most areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn from multiple subway lines.
