Situated on a stately Park Slope street lined with Victorian-era row houses, this 25-foot-wide red brick Neo-Georgian mansion at 633 2nd Street was, according to its $4,995,000 listing, constructed in 1908 as a token of love by architect Thomas O’Connor for his bride. Between the historic home’s grand center stair and rare double parlor, it would still be quite the fabulous romantic offering today. With its historic details beautifully preserved, the 4,127-square-foot, six-bedroom house is comprised of three stories over an English basement.
Up the original marble steps and through an impressive set of column-framed front doors with leaded glass windows are a classic pair of sitting rooms, an open and spiraling center staircase, and a great room with 10-foot ceilings and a working fireplace.
16 glass panels make up the bay window in the formal dining room.
Ascend the center stair to the second floor to find a spacious billiards room with 12-foot ceilings and another wood-burning fireplace. Also on this floor are a suitably grand master suite with a large bath and a sewing room.
On the third floor are four more bedrooms, a full bath, and a half bath. Also up here are a sweet private office and seemingly endless closet space with the potential for more.
