A dapper ebony cornice, a three-sided bay front, and a two-part stoop distinguish the house at 548 8th street from its Park Slope neighbors. Half a block from Prospect Park, this landmarked limestone townhouse was built at the turn of the 20th century by prolific local architect Benjamin Driesler. The three-story, two-family home has only changed hands once before, and it’s currently on the market for $3.25 million.

The well-kept home may not be freshly-renovated with the newest high-tech gadgetry, but much of its original detail has been lovingly preserved and restored, and you’ll find timeless conveniences such as lots of closets. Starting on the parlor floor, a double parlor and a formal dining room are framed by 10-foot ceilings.

The eat-in kitchen, while not a shiny new showcase of fixtures and finishes, conveys a clean and cheerful minimalism. Not pictured, a southern facing backyard just off the kitchen features 100-year-old rose bushes and a variety of perennials including day lilies, irises, and hostas.

Upstairs you’ll find three large bedrooms and a windowed office with a closet–possibly a nursery or dressing room. There’s also a washer/dryer closet in the hallway. On the garden level–also not pictured–is a well-laid-out apartment for extra income in this high-rent neighborhood, or the option to add even more space and create a single-family triplex.
