When you think “historic Brooklyn brownstone,” this restored Park Slope home is likely to at least come close to what’s on your mind–and more likely to hit a bullseye. Perfectly-preserved flourishes and original details frame every room, including decorative moldings, original oak floors and Lincrusta wallcoverings, adding up to elegance you don’t usually find in such flawless condition.

Yet there’s nothing old-fashioned about daily life in this five-bedroom, 3,680-square-foot triplex currently seeking tenants at $15,000 a month. You’ll get zoned central air and heat, a laundry room with a washer/dryer, a kitchen that’s ready for cooking and entertaining a crowd, baths filled with luxurious details, and countless other ways this pretty period piece has been optimized for modern life.
