It’s hardly breaking news that new construction townhouses are among the most popular architecturally significant ideas that developers are offering luxury buyers; a few are probably headed for a construction site near you. With all the enchantments of a modern house in the desert, woods or suburbs–and all the conveniences and innovations of Brooklyn’s Park Slope, this 2,256-square-foot home at 253 8th Street is the latest of such offerings in a section of the Slope generally better known for innovation than preservation.

A set of two newly-minted townhouses at 253 Eighth have unique qualities that go well beyond the average apartment–in addition to the fact that they offer more space. Each triplex home has three big bedrooms, a private roof deck with a full outdoor kitchen and a private garage.

Entering via the rolled-steel water-sculpted custom gate, you’ll find a sun-filled play room and a study at the garden level.

The second-floor living/dining space and kitchen make great use of the property’s 25-foot width. Walls of glass mean bright, airy rooms framed by the warmth of walnut floors and reclaimed wood. The home’s kitchen offers ample work and storage space and appliances from SubZero, Wolf and Bosch.

Modern comforts like zoned central heat and A/C and Lutron lighting controls can be found throughout.

Custom-made built-ins keep living spaces clutter free; mudrooms, hall closets, walk-ins and basement storage equal more comforts you don’t usually get with city living.

On the home’s third floor you’ll find spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, plus vast expanses of closet space.

Another rare-in-the-city perk: A large, beautifully constructed garage gives you even more space for storage (or room for an actual car).
