Lavish Renaissance Revival brownstone just outside Prospect Park asks $6M
This five-story Brooklyn brownstone–packed with pre-war details–is less than 25 yards from the borough’s beloved Prospect Park. Located at 572 1st Street in Park Slope, it’s currently configured as an owner’s triplex with a rental duplex on the top two floors. And it’s huge: the building measures 22 feet wide and 52 feet deep, with 18 feet extensions on two levels. Details include everything from tiled fireplaces to stained glass to enormous mirrors to ornate woodwork. It’s just been listed for the substantial sum of $5.995 million.
The parlor floor boasts 11-foot ceilings plus an open layout that creates a sense of roominess– “quite unusual for urban living,” as the listing says. On this grand floor, four rooms flow into each other–a living room, a library lined with mahogany built-in bookcases, a grand dining room, and a kitchen.
The living room features beautiful parquet floors, a green tiled fireplace, and more built-in mahogany shelving.
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances from Sub Zero and Dacor and also countertops inlaid with a striking green marble.
The garden floor of the triplex is used as guest quarters, the combination of a large living room, kitchenette, full bath, and bedroom. The bedroom then opens out into the landscaped backyard.
Up a mahogany staircase from the parlor floor, the second floor holds two large bedrooms, a bathroom with the original claw-foot tub, and a sunny south-facing terrace. Then there’s the upper duplex, which could either be used for rental income or combined with the owner triplex to create a grand single-family home. The separate apartment holds three bedrooms, two full baths, a living room, dining room and kitchen.
The back windows of the townhouse all look down on the private outdoor space, accessed from the garden level.
This well-preserved brownstone is only a half block from Prospect Park and a short walk from Grand Army Plaza. That’s where you can catch the 2/3 train lines, the large Saturday farmer’s market, and the Brooklyn Public Library.
