As our hundreds of prior Cool Listings can attest, there is no shortage of stunning multi-million dollar homes in New York City. Day after day we marvel at interiors filled with exquisite details–and this single-family brownstone at 722A Union Street in Park Slope is no exception–well, at least as far as the inside is concerned.
It’s no surprise with a historical property of this caliber that all of the requisite boxes are checked. Lovely prewar details abound, including original concealed wooden shutters, original pine and oak parquet floors, marble fireplaces, painted moldings, oversized windows and period light fixtures. The parlor floor’s period-inspired formal living room boasts high ceilings and breathtaking mahogany doors that graciously invite you inside.
The garden level features a generously sized modern living area with built-in bookshelves encasing the entire room and a window seat that spans the width of the space. The eat-in-kitchen is an interesting blend of old and new, but charms nevertheless and offers plenty of room for prepping a fantastic meal–or simply enjoying one with family and friends
An additional set of mahogany pocket doors with etched glass panels awaits on the third floor, opening to the master suite, whose bathroom features a glass shower enclosure and slate tile floor. Two more oversized bedrooms grace the upper floor, both with beautiful original marble mantels and a bathroom along with a swing room that could be an office or cozy library.
But what really sets this residence apart is the magnificent two-story conservatory adjacent to the kitchen. This one-of-a-kind sanctuary features a slate tile floor with radiant heat and a gas fireplace to keep you cozy on brisk fall days and cold winter nights. When the weather is a little more cooperative, simply open up the glass-filled automatic garage door and put the entire back garden at your fingertips. A beautifully landscaped oasis with mature plantings of roses and azaleas, as well as your very own Koi pond, will soothe your soul and center your spirit. There’s even a built in Jacuzzi (with privacy screen) to melt any remaining stress away.
Conveniently located near all of the North Slope’s great restaurants and shops, this $2.5 million townhouse is perfect inside and out.
