From its meticulously maintained façade to the oh-so-gorgeous interior details to the amazing private garden, this well-loved four-story residence at 113 6th Avenue is what Park Slope brownstone living is all about.
Twelve-foot-high tray ceilings welcome you into the well-apportioned living room, where extra-tall windows drench the sizable space with sunlight and a stunning marble fireplace makes a grand impression as one of the home’s seven warm hearths.
The formal dining room features a wonderful arched nook tailor-made for a large buffet piece, an intricate ceiling medallion surrounding the chandelier, and another fireplace–a surprising yet beautiful accent. When the weather cooperates, you can easily move your meal onto the expansive dining terrace overlooking the most perfect of gardens.
The home’s upper floors are slightly less formal with an abundance of exposed brick. The modern eat-in-kitchen is efficiently designed with high-end appliances, an oversized butler’s pantry, and an adorable seating banquette. And if you thought a fireplace in the dining room was surprising, how about having one in the kitchen? We think it adds a fantastically cozy touch.
A huge, open family room with wide plank floors makes the second level the place to be for casual entertaining or just hanging out and relaxing with your feet up. And if you’re counting, here’s where you’ll find fireplace number four.
Three bedrooms grace the third floor with the larger front room currently being used as the master given its sky-lighted separate dressing room–and yes, a fireplace. A rear room with exposed brick and wood timber accents has views along Park and Prospect Places–and the sixth stunning hearth.
The completely renovated one-bedroom garden floor rental features a gourmet kitchen with granite counters and cool glass tile and a lovely new bath. And you guessed it – fireplace number seven!
Minutes away from all the special shops and eateries along 5th and 7th Avenues, this gem of a home at the top of the Slope listed at $3.2 million is sure to keep you toasty on warm winter nights and offers plenty of outdoor space to enjoy once the temperature starts to rise.
