After Prospect Park opened in 1867, a wave of development hit the surrounding area, now known as Park Slope. The stretch of Prospect Park West, which bordered the park, was dubbed the “Gold Coast” for its many lavish mansions. Today, the stretch is still home to some of Brooklyn’s most impressive buildings. This townhouse at 103 Prospect Park West is one of them. A triplex co-op there is on the market for $1.995 million, and it retains much of its pre-war detailing.
The co-op unit spans three floors and holds three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Many of the historic elements of the apartment have been retained: large bay windows, woodwork, a coffered ceiling with plaster detailing. Those historic touches have been renovated to accommodate a sleek, modern kitchen and bathroom.
Two of the three bedrooms are large enough for king-sized beds, according to the listing. There’s also plenty of closet space, as well as more storage space in the basement for co-op owners.
One of the major perks of the unit is the private terrace that’s off the master bedroom. It’s a huge patio with enough space to BBQ or garden. And of course, if you’re craving even more greenery, there’s Prospect Park literally right across the street. You’re within a short walking distance of the historic Litchfield Villa within the park, the picnic house and the long meadow.
