This flexible duplex at 246 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope feels more like a townhouse with its wood-burning fireplace and a dreamy outdoor space that’s perfect as both your quiet retreat and the venue for your next party. Currently being used as a three bedroom, the residence features charming material details—there’s both white-washed and exposed brick—and some cool layout features, including a private lofted area in one of the bedrooms. The unique listing is fresh on the market for $1.595 million.
The entrance is on the upper level, where you walk into the large kitchen featuring marble countertops, a herringbone marble backsplash, and ample storage space via custom-milled cabinetry. A gorgeous dining area off the open kitchen boasts a built-in wood bench for seating (combined with storage!), a wall of exposed brick, and a wood-burning fireplace. Mid Century modern-inspired built-ins feature throughout the home, adding storage opportunities that are easy on the eye.
Down the hall on the same floor are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The master has a wall of built-in walnut closets and two windows overlooking the private garden below. The lofted play/sleep area in the second bedroom makes for a whimsical kid’s room.
Downstairs is a cozy living room with exposed white-washed brick and timber beams. An adjacent den is currently being used as a third bedroom but offers multiple possibilities for future owners.
Outside you’ll find a true oasis type of garden, with no details overlooked. You’ll get privacy from the cedar-slatted fence, while built-in benches provide seating options. There are lush planters and a large Japanese Maple, but built-in irrigation systems and stone pavement throughout will keep your garden maintenance low. A gas grill and a custom lighting system make the garden ready-to-go for entertaining.
Located in a pet-friendly, eight-unit co-op, the property benefits from low maintenance fees and additional storage.
