Location and a Roof Deck With a View Elevate This $1.55M Center Slope Walk-Up

This lofted “duplex” on a gorgeous tree-lined brownstone block right in the center of Park Slope may not have a lot of usable space to spread out, but what it does have has been customized with modern details and creature comforts. For $1.55 million, the fifth floor condo at 486 Third Street could use an elevator (especially given the neighborhood’s appeal to families who come with strollers, groceries and plenty of gear), but once you’re inside this home in the treetops, great light and a private roof deck make a pretty compelling case.

486 Third Street Window

If you prefer a brownstone apartment to a big, busy building, you’re in luck here, and the Third Street location near major neighborhood shopping and dining streets, Prospect Park, markets and transportation is among the city’s most sought-after. A considerable amount of the unit’s 1,277 square feet of living space is given to a spacious living and dining area with 18-foot vaulted ceilings. Big bay widows mean plenty of natural light.

486 Third Street Kitchen

A custom-designed kitchen features high-end stainless steel appliances, soapstone countertops and solid cherry wood cabinets. White brick covering one wall adds a cool modern accent to the space.

486 Third Street Bedroom 1

486 Third Street Bedroom 2

A good-sized master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a smaller second bedroom, plus a full and half bath complete the lower level.

486 Third Street Loft Den 2

Upstairs, a large open loft space functions as a home office, kids’ play room or media room.

486 Third Street Roof Deck

486 Third Street Roof Deck 3

486 Third Street Rooftop View

The best part of this top floor home just might be this 396 square-foot landscaped rooftop terrace with custom teak decking and panoramic views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines.

486 Third Street Bath

Creature comforts (radiant heated floors, dual-zone central air, a separate laundry closet) and custom details (marble baths, chandeliers and mercury glass light fixtures, wide board maple flooring) add everyday-living appeal.
