For some Park Slope buyers it might be enough that this 1,700-square-foot, three-bedroom co-op at 90 Prospect Park West is directly across from the 585-acre park. Of course, there are those three bedrooms, gorgeous pre-war bones, three exposures, custom built-ins and clean, updated interiors. But this prime Center Slope home also has that covetable Brooklyn perk: outdoor space, in the form of a sweet semi-private deck.
Currently on the market for $1.85 million, the unit last changed hands in July of 2010 for $1.155 million, so the current ask would add up to a significant payday for the current owners. Another minor historic footnote: in the 1960s and ’70s, the building’s tenants purchased the then-rent-stabilized building and set up co-operative ownership–making it possibly the first co-op building in Brooklyn.
It also looks as if there have been significant renovations since the previous listings, though the historic details and spacious rooms remain. The oversized entry foyer offers the first look at the original turn-of-the-19th-century details like artisan oak and walnut woodwork, wedding cake plaster, leaded glass transoms, pocket doors, original shutters and inlaid parquet floors.
The dining room is surrounded by rich wood wainscoting and a high, coffered ceiling.
The bright and modern kitchen has cherry cabinetry, a subway tile back splash and stainless steel appliances and opens out onto the patio stairs.
The master bedroom offers a wall of closets; there are three good-sized bedroms, and the dining room could even be made into a fourth, as the unit’s living room and entry foyer provide plenty of living space. There are two full baths; according to the listing, both bathrooms are in pristine condition; the master bath features a spa-like stone backdrop to modern elements like radiant floor heating and a glass-enclosed rain shower.
The lovely landscaped deck (shared with one other unit) with lounge seating and a grill, is accessed right through the kitchen.
You also get in-unit laundry and sound-proof city windows, plus 250 square feet of private storage in the cellar.
In addition to being a stone’s throw from Prospect Park, the well-kept building with very low maintenance is in a prime Slope location, near several subway lines and the amazing restaurants of 7th and 5th avenues, and just a few blocks from the Whole Foods Market, Park Slope Food Co-op and much more of why people love this neighborhood.
