Just two blocks from Prospect Park, this four-story brownstone is rich with original details as well as recent additions. The home is right at the edge of the Park Slope Historic District and, according to the designation report, is a neo-Italian Renaissance brownstone built circa 1895 by one Walter M. Coats. The home has had the same owners for decades and is currently configured as an owner’s triplex over a garden rental with private entrance, and it’s asking just under $4 million.

The home opens to a parlor rich with period notes, from painted plaster wall and ceiling moldings and mahogany fretwork on the pier mirror and above the entrance to inlaid parquet floors and stained glass. A center staircase with oak spindles and balusters leads up through the light let in by a domed skylight directly above the stairwell. There are four oak mantels throughout, as well as exposed brick.

The wall moldings continue to the upper floors, where three of the four bedrooms boast ensuite baths; one has a sumptuous walk-in closet the size of a home office and another wooden slat ceilings.

The eat-in kitchen has abundant carved millwork and leads out to the deck. It also has a rather awkward marble island jutting into the dining area.

The deck in the backyard is new, according to the listing, and leads down via an iron staircase to a patio garden with pond, waterfall and cherry tree.
