878 PRESIDENT St - Park Slope, New York

 

Stop the presses. You must see this rare and stunning semi-attached 20'x53' Park Slope brownstone just one block from Prospect Park. Fully renovated from top to bottom with thoughtfulness and care; this house presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a very lucky, and discerning buyer. Lot-line windows on the east side of the house provide extra light all throughout the house, which is exceedingly rare among Park Slope and Brooklyn brownstones. It doesn't stop there. Even rarer still: an available deeded parking space (not included in the sales price) and there are Landmarks Commission-approved plans for an amazing roof deck.

Up the front steps and through a grand entrance is the open living room which provides a natural flow through the parlor floor. A wonderful gas fireplace serves as the focus of the living room. There is also a lovely powder room. New hardwood floors have been installed throughout.

Past the living room is an expansive eat-in kitchen area, with room for a full-size dining table. It features multiple sinks with Grohe fixtures, La Cornue oven, Fisher Paykel dishwashers (one in the main kitchen and one in the galley-style scullery), built-in Wolf microwave, built-in Miele Coffee Maker, and a lovely gas fireplace. Light fills the room from South-facing floor-to-ceiling windows at the rear of the house, and the kitchen opens onto a spacious glass-floored deck, which flows down to the back garden. The deck features an outdoor kitchen with a built-in Wolf grill.

The third floor has the master bedroom suite with an oversized master bathroom, a walk-in closet, and a walk-through closet. No expense has been spared in this grand renovation: the master bathroom includes a spacious soaking tub bathed in natural light, a lounging area, a walk-through Mr. Steam shower, dual sinks, and a Mr. Steam towel warmer. The master bedroom is also very spacious, with room for an office or seating area as well, enhanced by a beautiful curved-glass bay window overlooking historic President Street.

The fourth floor, currently the top floor includes an enlarged skylight, washer-dryer, three bedrooms (one currently set up as an adorable playroom for lucky little ones) and two more full bathrooms. As on the floor below, the front bedroom is bathed in light and overlooks the quiet, tree-lined street.

Back down on the garden level is a second indoor kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and flexible-use rooms at the front and rear of the house. This floor is perfect for additional home living and entertaining, a home office, and/or for guests or tenants in a legal garden apartment.

Further down there is a superbly finished basement featuring a den and beautifully designed large wine cellar, as well as additional storage space and laundry facilities.The house is heated and cooled by a central HVAC system with Mitsubishi thermostats and a Control 4 Smart Home system. All electrical and plumbing in the house was updated during the recent full renovation.

Located in the heart of Park Slope, perennially named one of the best neighborhoods in America, within the original Park Slope Historic District. Conveniently located just a block from Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza, and close to the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, and the 2/3/B/Q trains. Tons of shopping and restaurants (e.g. al di la, Talde, Fonda, Olmstead, Hugo & Sons, Blueprint, Blue Ribbon Brooklyn, the Park Slope Food Co-op, the original Union Market, and the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket) await nearby on Seventh Avenue, Fifth Avenue, Flatbush Ave, and Vanderbilt Ave. Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music are just minutes away.
