This cheerful yellow brick townhouse at 235 8th Street in the heart of Park Slope looks like a pretty good deal for the neighborhood at $2.1 million. Interiors have been updated in a clean and contemporary style, with plenty of charm and original details remaining. Though it’s currently being used as a single-family home, it’s a legal two-family and can be expanded to more than double its size with remaining FAR on the 100-foot-deep lot. Currently on that same lot is a garden oasis that would make it hard to spend a moment indoors on warm-weather days.

Enter on the parlor level into a bright living and dining space with a wood-burning stove surrounded by a marble mantel.

The open galley kitchen boasts Viking stove, a Sub-Zero fridge and double doors that open onto a balcony overlooking the garden below.

Upstairs, a completely charming master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a skylight, built-in book shelves, two good closets and a designer en-suite bath.

Downstairs on the first floor is an office space with built-in shelving and pocket doors plus another large bedroom and a compact full bath. Alternately this floor could be configured as an income-producing rental with an architect’s assistance.

The home’s garden floor opens out to that charming garden with a deck area for dining and gazing, a pergola, grass for barefoot roaming and perennial plantings. The home’s basement offers more built-in shelving and  a washer/dryer.
