Talk about a garden to die for. This Park Slope brownstone at 121 Lincoln Place has a backyard we wish we could camp out in this summer. The “private, lush, botanical landscaped garden,” as the listing calls it, impressively extends over 86 feet. There’s a shade garden in the back and a sun garden in the middle, not to mention two separate patios. As for the greenery, you’ve got roses, hydrangeas, honeysuckle, a rhododendron, azaleas, lilies, evergreen shrubs, a cypress, hemlock and more. Is the outdoor space enough to sell you on this home? Luckily, the interior isn’t too bad either. It’s on the market now for $3.795 million.
The brownstone, located on a tree-lined block between 6th and 7th avenues, was constructed around 1880. Although it’s configured as a two-family home over four floors, it is currently used as a single family.
The kitchen and dining room are located on the first floor, looking out onto the garden. (Perfect setup to throw an outdoor dinner party!) The kitchen has been renovated to include custom hand-glazed cabinets, an extra-wide fridge, two sinks and a large island with limestone countertops.
Here’s the formal dining room on the first floor, which faces the front of the home. Down here, you’ve got both exposed brick detailing as well as the original tiled fireplace. The home also has its original staircases.
Up on the parlor floor, the details are even fancier. Underneath high ceilings you’ll find decorative inlaid parquet floors, original mantles, plaster moldings and medallions. We especially like the addition of the built-in book shelves.
How about a few more shots of the garden for the road? Lovely, indeed. This home is also about two blocks away from Grand Army Plaza, which serves as the entrance to another great green space—Prospect Park.
