In the coveted environs of north Park Slope, steps from Prospect Park on a pretty tree-lined and landmarked block, this Brooklyn townhouse beauty at 594 Second Street has all the historic details homeowners here work so diligently to preserve, yet with every modern comfort in place. Understated luxuries–like tall french doors that open out to a landscaped garden, two decks, three wood-burning fireplaces, a sauna, an upstairs family room and a laundry room make this historic house a home–albeit an expensive one. Starting in July, you can rent this regal residence for an equally regal $17,500 a month (furnished or unfurnished).

If you love traditional brownstone design there’s plenty of it in this five-bedroom townhouse. Enter through the parlor floor into a formal front parlor, complete with grand piano. On this floor you’ll  also find a central dining room with tall, coffered ceilings, oak paneled walls, built-in glass cabinets, a working wood-burning fireplace and those tall townhouse windows topped with original stained glass.

Through the dining room is a neat and stylish pass-through kitchen with a spacious dining area at the back. The kitchen opens onto a south-facing deck, with steps leading down to the garden, perfect for outdoor dining.

A restored mahogany staircase leads to the second floor, where a cozy open family room gets plenty of southern light. Through a glass door you’ll find a large terrace overlooking the garden.

Opposite the family space, the master bedroom offers a “wonderful walk in closet,” (though we couldn’t imagine a terrible one) as well as another working fireplace, and a large bath.

On the top floor are three more bedrooms, a full bathroom and a laundry room; a stained glass skylight keeps it bright.

The garden level is a complete bonus: you can put another bedroom down here (there’s a full bath, with a Jacuzzi tub and sauna), or use it as a media or entertaining room. French doors open the back of the home up to the lovely landscaped terrace. The furniture can stay or go, (not sure about the piano, though.)
