Developer Matthew Blesso is doing a total architectural 180. Blesso, who used to call this uber-sleek Noho penthouse home, has just closed on a far more cozy historic construction in the heart of Park Slope according to city records filed today. No official listing could be found for the three-story pre-war home, but previous reports show that it was last being rented out by its former owner William Lawrence for about $11,000 a month. The neighborhood and the townhouse are certainly quite a change for Blesso, whose last home was about as modern and metropolitan as they get.
Inside the home boasts a gracious entry foyer which opens up to a sunny south-facing living room. Original “pass-through” built-in cabinetry and marble sinks are among treasured original architectural details, as well as five decorative fireplaces, a grand center stair, parquet floors, stained glass, pocket doors, and much more.
A center parlor provides a perfect entertainment space, while a formal dining room with coffered ceiling and wainscoting is a time warp to Park Slope’s far more prim and proper times.
The upper two floors house five bedrooms and two full baths, and at the ground floor is a lovely garden.
