One of Park Slope’s landmark limestone townhouses has just returned to the market. The 5,100-square-foot, Frederick Tyrrell-designed home was built in 1901 at the height of the neo-classical style’s popularity. With a well-maintained original four-story building, along with a new extension, original details, and a private gated driveway, this $3.995 million home is definitely worth a look.
There are two entrances to this town home: a main entrance on the front and an alternate rear entrance. The parlor floor of the six-bedroom home greets you with a grand entryway that boasts intricate inlay parquet floors. There’s a formal parlor with a mahogany pier mirror, a center parlor, and a formal dining room with stained glass windows. Meanwhile, a renovated kitchen features high-end appliances.
The third-floor master has a bay window and one of the home’s seven decorative fireplaces. Its en suite bathroom hosts a claw-foot tub and separate shower. Like the rest of the home, exquisite millwork and stained glass windows make the space stand out. The fourth floor and the garden level have additional bedrooms, closets, and bathrooms.
5 Plaza Street West is conveniently located right across from Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza with easy access to the weekend farmer’s market and tons of shopping and transportation.
