Dramatic, spacious, immaculate, and ever so beautiful. This 19th century Romanesque brownstone was painstakingly and meticulously restored, during a two-year gut renovation, completed less than three years ago. No detail was overlooked or sacrificed in this incredible renovation - and the details in this home are unlike any other in Park Slope - ornate moldings and exquisite carved wood detailing throughout the house - all beautifully restored or rebuilt with the closest attention to detail. The finishes in the house are also as good as it gets, with top of the line finishes in each of the huge kitchen on the garden floor, as well as the parlor kitchen, complete with Viking and La Cornue ranges, respectively, Subzero and Miele. Waterworks fixtures and finishes are found in all of the four bathrooms including a sky-lit master bathroom with separate corner tub and huge shower stall with double shower heads. A single family home of over 6,000 square feet, this house is made for living. The garden level has been fully reengineered to provide loft-like wide open space, or which could easily convert to a guest room with a full bathroom on this level, play space, den, TV room, etc. and this level has a working gas fireplace. The kitchen is huge and beautiful, made for real cooking complete with a dining banquette where family and friends can sit while the chef in your family makes things happen. Opening directly into the home s stone patio, with trellis and bamboo, perfect for al fresco dining. Downstairs, in the finished cellar (dug out a full two feet) is an enormous gym and ample storage. The upper levels of this house is where the home s history comes to life. Perfect for living, as well as entertaining, the parlor features soaring ceilings and windows both in the front and rear parlor, a working gas fireplace, dramatic chandeliers, and to the rear, a beautiful kitchen in keeping with the house s traditional style which is both beautiful and functional.
