This somewhat unusual four-and-a-half-bedroom Park Slope townhouse at 641 Warren Street was converted to a single-family home from a three-family dwelling by the building’s current owners. Renovations were done with an emphasis on quality and practicality, and elements of their Japanese heritage were integrated throughout including a “chashitsu,” or traditional tea ceremony room, with tatami mats, a patio and a kitchen preparation area overlooking a garden that boasts Japanese maple, fruiting peach, and willow trees and bamboo.

A nine-foot-long Corian countertop is just right for a quick breakfast or a snack, and Bosch appliances, industrial venting, and warming drawers assure the aforementioned practicality.

Bedrooms are divided between the ground level and the top floor of the 2,160-square-foot home. Traditional Japanese bathrooms feature both showers and Jacuzzi soaking tubs.

The fence-enclosed rooftop, accessible via pull-down stairs, is a perfect spot for a quiet sunbathe or picnic table dining.
