Mahogany millwork, plaster ceiling moldings, stained-glass windows: these are just a few of the stunning details to be found inside this historic Park Slope townhouse at 566 First Street. A restoration sought to restore as much of the limestone home–which was built in 1906–as possible, while at the same time integrating modern amenities from a dumbwaiter to audio and lighting systems. And now the 4,900-square-foot stunner is on the market for $5.475 million.
The four-story home is located a half block from Prospect Park. On the townhouse’s parlor floor, it holds the grand living room, a center parlor, formal dining room and modernized kitchen. It all centers around a stunning carved mahogany central staircase.
The dining room and center parlor both have working gas fireplaces decked out with period fire baskets set against marble slabs.
The upgraded kitchen was tucked behind French doors at the rear of the parlor floor. It gets lots of light from the huge windows that overlook the back garden.
Every floor holds more impressive interior details. On the third floor there is a formal study with a gas fireplace adjacent to a library with carved mahogany columns and custom-made bookcases.
The master bedroom, also on this floor, boasts an original stained-glass window and heated stone floors. A glass door leads from this bedroom to a south-facing bluestone deck planted with Mediterranean junipers and herbs. A dressing room with built-in closets connects to the office.
The fourth floor was redesigned to hold two suites, each with a bedroom and connected playroom/study space. The two suites are connected by a dressing room with rows of built-in closets. There’s one more guest suite on the garden floor.
The bathroom on this floor even combines its original stained-glass window with modernized fixtures!
Ultimately there’s no shortage of impressive interior details within this Park Slope townhouse. Be sure to check the gallery for more shots and up-close details of the lavish home.
