Take one look at the old-world wine cellar at this Park Slope brownstone, and it’ll make perfect sense that the owners are selling because they’re winemakers relocating to California. And the absolutely gorgeous home, listed for $6 million, also has plenty of places to enjoy a nice glass of vino, including four outdoor spaces. The townhouse was completely renovated, retaining its impeccable historic details, while adding modern conveniences and a wonderful, income-producing apartment on the garden floor.

Listed for $2,180,000, the three-bedroom Park Slope co-op is spread over two floors and has bright, cheerful rooms.

If COVID has you considering the suburbs, but you’re still not totally sold, this $3.5 million Park Slope townhouse at 415 Dean Street might be just the compromise you need. It comes with a private driveway with a garage, so you can own a car for easy getaways. It also has a beautiful backyard that the listing calls “a Tuscan hideaway” that’s perfect for outdoor dining and large enough for socially distant hangouts. And when you want to stay in, there are three bedrooms, classical interiors, and modern amenities.

Built in 1893, this Romanesque brownstone is quintessential Park Slope. It’s been renovated over the years, but since most of the historic details have been restored, these modernizations have only made it better. Most notably, the whole cellar has been converted into a home gym, which is clad in the original stone walls, and the garden level is one giant family room with a second kitchen that leads out to a backyard garden. Plus, the entire third floor is devoted to the master suite, which opens to a top-floor terrace. Located at 178 8th Avenue, it’s just hit the market for $6,450,000.

The pitched lapboard ceilings, exposed brick, and cozy nooks make this Park Slope co-op feel like a little cottage in the sky. But when you step onto the rooftop and peer across brownstone Brooklyn, you’ll be reminded that you’re still in the city. Located at 16 Montgomery Place, the two-bedroom apartment has even more lovely perks, including a wood-burning fireplace, three skylights, and tons of built-ins.

This uber-charming brick rowhouse on the Park Slope/Gowanus border is pretty perfect for quarantine; it has soothing interiors to keep you calm during this stressful time, but the backyard is party-ready for those times when you need to let loose.

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.
