On a quintessential Park Slope street lined with brick homes a block from Prospect Park, behind a cheerful pair of cobalt blue doors, this well-maintained, intelligently updated two-family brownstone has a move-in ready mix of historic detail and modern ease. Built at the turn of the 19th century, the 20-foot-wide home at 510 7th Street is currently configured to offer a garden-level one-bedroom apartment with a duplex above for an income opportunity in a high-rent neighborhood; it easily converts to a single family for more space, and it’s a legal three-family so three units are also an option. The three-story home is asking $2.999 million.

The home’s open-plan parlor floor offers a living room with cherry built-ins, a long dining room, a back sitting area and a full wall of exposed brick. Extra tall townhouse windows accentuate a graceful bow front.

Back downstairs, the large garden-level one-bedroom apartment has an open living/dining room, upgraded kitchen, in-unit laundry, a large bedroom and private outdoor space; collect income, use it as a mother-in-law/guest/au pair suite or make it part of the home for lots of extra space. A huge cellar offers even more storage.
