Though the neighborhood may be lovely and its amenities many, it’s not for nothing that Park Slope is known as “no place to park Slope.” This gracious 23.5-foot-wide four-story home at 559 1st Street, asking $4,995 million, is in a prime spot right on the park; even better, deeded parking is available for trade with the sale. The two-family home is being used as a single-family townhouse, but the opportunity for rental income exists if the new owner wants to change the configuration.

In addition to an elegant barrel-fronted facade and bowed front windows, this classically ornate Brooklyn brownstone is filled with turn-of-the-century details include parquet and inlaid flooring, restored mahogany woodwork, full-height pocket doors, fireplaces, original built-in mahogany and glass cabinetry, plaster walls and ceilings and pristine ornamental molding. Modern comforts include central air conditioning, gas heat and full-sized laundry facilities.

The home’s garden floor is its informal gathering space, with a large sitting room and a spacious kitchen complete with a six-burner Viking range and hood and Sub Zero refrigerator. A backyard garden is just off the kitchen for al fresco dining and entertaining.

On the parlor level you’ll find the large formal living and dining rooms rooms you’d expect; there is also a small, marble-enhanced gem of a caterers kitchen that could be easily converted to a powder room or expanded into a larger parlor-level kitchen.

The master bedroom floor has original birdseye maple woodwork, high ceilings, ornate plaster details and an original fireplace. For modern convenience there are two dressing areas with sinks and a large renovated master bath that enjoys light filtered through a stained glass window. On the top floor are large bedrooms joined by a dressing area, a full bath, another fireplace and a smaller third bedroom .
