This five-story brownstone at 920 President Street has been home to the same family for decades. Consequently, it’s maintained a lot of its original details like stained glass windows, pier mirrors, pocket doors, and wainscoting. And a location right on Prospect Park makes this the perfect canvas for creating your dream home, all with an asking price just $5 under $5 million.
Enter on the parlor level to find nine-foot-high pocket doors and an extra deep living room with 12-foot ceilings. A second set of pocket doors leads to a formal dining room, while in the back of the home there’s a kitchen with an original fireplace, and a maid’s stair grants access to the garden level.
On the second floor there’s a front-facing library with built-in cabinets and shelves. A pass-through hallway with a marble sink and some cupboards leads to the second bedroom. The bathroom has the home’s original claw foot tub and marble vanity.
The third floor has two more bedrooms with additional side rooms, while the top floor boasts exposed beams and a gabled ceiling. There are also two skylights, a front-facing bedroom, and a hatch with access to the roof.
The listing suggests turning the garden level into a home gym, theater, or rec room. 920 President Street is in one of Brooklyn’s most coveted neighborhoods. Park Slope has many boutiques and eateries, with Propect Park right in your backyard.
