Landmarked 1887 Townhouse is Right at Home in 21st Century Park Slope
This meticulously renovated four-story townhouse located at 27 7th Avenue in Park Slope is a stunning example of the “best of both worlds”. While careful to retain gorgeous period details such as decorative mantels, original millwork, plaster mouldings, pier mirrors and pockets doors, The Brooklyn Home Company left no stone unturned in its quest for modernity within the home’s classic interior.
Presently configured as an owner’s triplex over a high-income, two bedroom garden rental, this home will pay you to live here—in a manner of speaking! The parlor level of the triplex consists of an elegant formal living room whose all white theme with white oak floors might seem bland in any other home. Here, it strikingly offsets the entryway’s dark wood and stained glass. The delicate bench at the base of the large centerpiece mirror is a lovely conversation piece, and truly sets the tone for the rest of the residence’s stunning interior.
Step through the large dining room directly into the 21st century eat-in chef’s kitchen featuring Calacatta Gold Marble Countertops, a 36″ six burner Wolf range, and Subzero paneled refrigerator. Even though the kitchen is thoroughly modern, its angled wall, pendant lighting reminiscent of kerosene lamps, and classic white “brick-style” tile offer just the right touch to satisfy the home’s Romanesque Revival roots.
In terms of sleeping quarters, the second floor has three large bedrooms and a full bath, but it’s the master bedroom suite occupying the entire top floor that really got our attention. The main bedroom boasts its own large sitting area, beamed ceiling and gas fireplace.
If that’s not enough, a second fireplace adorns a separate den/study. Completing the space is a huge walk-in-closet and opulent master bath featuring a Grohe double shower with two rainheads and multiple sprayers, soaking tub and radiant heated Honed Carrera marble floors.
And let’s not forget the home’s exterior, which includes a fully restored front façade, new landmark approved windows, and a custom-designed garden with built-in gas grill, sink and refrigerator, and Bluestone Pavers and planting beds.
This $4,000,000 classic beauty has much to admire inside and out – and we appreciated every beautiful inch of it.
