On the corner of a picturesque Park Slope avenue, the 1860s Italianate row house at 96 Sixth Avenue anchors a block of historic brownstones. Inside, the home unfolds in modern magnificence, the result of a gut renovation by the architectural firm Baxt Ingui, IA Construction, and Tamara Eaton Design. In its current form, the five-bedroom home, asking $12,750,000, combines 19th-century glamour and contemporary design. A custom-built rear extension includes a separate studio and the rare bonus of a two-car garage, connected to the main home via a modern catwalk–all without sacrificing outdoor garden and deck space.

On the parlor floor, original grace and beauty have been preserved and enhanced in the form of arched entry doors, bay windows, decorative millwork, a fireplace, and hardwood floors. Large, open spaces are flooded with natural light.

At the back of the parlor floor, a sophisticated kitchen expands at an angle, framed by a wall of glass. Dark navy custom cabinetry wraps state-of-the-art appliances and a massive stone-clad island anchors the room.

Connected to the main home by a catwalk, an airy studio overlooks the rear deck and garden, perfect as a home office. A paved and landscaped patio awaits summer entertaining and outdoor dining.

Down a modern staircase at the garden level, a sprawling den is anchored by a gas fireplace. Glass panels open onto the patio, bordered by a slatted fence with built-in seating. At the other end of the patio is a two-car garage below the studio.

The second floor is home to the primary suite. This enviable refuge offers a seating area framed by the home’s original archway. A sunny en-suite bath features a double vanity, a windowed walk-in rain shower, a free-standing basin, and a wood-burning fireplace. A walk-in closet/dressing room is lined with custom millwork.

On the topmost floor, an open living room/playroom joins three bedrooms. Highlights include built-in window seats with storage, luxuriously appointed bathrooms, and a laundry room. Central HV/AC has been installed throughout all floors.

The handsome row house is fronted by a classic brownstone facade and iconic stoop entry. Situated at the border between Park Slope and Prospect Heights, this fortunate corner is a short stroll away from Prospect Park, numerous subway lines, and dozens of restaurants, shops, and other popular Brooklyn destinations.
