What if you had the opportunity to live in a 7,000-square-foot brownstone mansion on a picturesque block just a stone’s throw away from Prospect Park? That’s just a taste of what 312 Garfield Place has to offer, for $6.995 million. It is believed that the brilliant home was built by developer William Flannigan for New York businessman J. J Galligan sometime during the turn of the 20th century. The resulting five-story building has a distinct Victorian charm with a light Renaissance touch.
A graceful stone staircase leads to the entrance of this nine-bedroom town home. Inside, there’s enough space for a village with a full apartment and maid’s quarters on the garden level. The elegant parlor level features two living rooms and a formal dining room with a bar, coffered ceilings and stained glass skylights.
The master is on the third level, along with a second bedroom and a bathroom. Both rooms have spacious dressing rooms. There are an additional three bedrooms on the fourth level, two of which have walk-in closets, and the top floor has more bedrooms along with a kitchenette.
There are fireplaces at every turn in this brownstone. We counted 10 overall, though only four are operating. Bay windows grace rooms on the front and back of every level, and expertly crafted millwork is featured throughout. There’s even a a cellar for storage and a garden patio for outdoor recreation. And if you’re looking for more outdoor space there’s always Prospect Park just three doors down.
