Extravagant limestone mansion asks a whooping $13.25M in Park Slope
This 1890s limestone and brick mansion at 45 Montgomery Place, in Park Slope was built–and renovated–to impress. It’s also asking an impressive $13.25 million after last selling a few years back for $10.775 million. (The last asking price, in 2013, was set at $14 million.) An impeccable renovation covers all 7,500 square feet of the 30-foot-wide home; everything from a refurbished, classic Otis elevator to restored stained glass to a wine cellar awaits in this townhouse, which was featured in the April issue of the French publication Marie Claire Maison.
A wide entryway–uncommon for Brooklyn townhouses–opens up into the parlor floor, which is described as “a loft-like space” with high ceiling heights, two fireplaces and a grand stair landing.
The living room is stunningly decorated, while the oval dining room boasts a working fireplace and stained glass window.
Down one floor to the garden level sits a customized kitchen with two dishwashers, two ranges, a warming drawer, Subzero fridge and freezer. Also on this floor: a secondary dining area and a comfy lounge area with another fireplace.
A dramatic spiral staircase takes you to the upper floors, which hold a total of six bedrooms.
The master faces out onto Montgomery. It connects to a bathroom with a freestanding soaking tub, as well as a massive closet and study space. It’s windowed, with–of course–another fireplace.
Four more bedrooms and two extra bathrooms finish off the upper floors, along with an additional guest or staff bedroom.
There’s also a bonus room (for an office or another bedroom), a home gym, and a windowed laundry room. The wine cellar awaits below and is easily accessed using the elevator.
The garden, right off the kitchen, has its own outdoor kitchen with appliances, a fridge and sink. There’s also seating areas among the lush landscaping.
This home was designed by the architect C.P.H. Gilbert and designer Babb, Cook & Willard–the same team behind the Cooper Hewitt Museum. Basically, everything about this space impresses, and now it’s a matter of it will sell for the full asking price. Be sure to check out more stunning images in the gallery below.
