Want to experience superb loft living just blocks from Prospect Park? Then you’re going to love this two-story carriage house at 426 6th Avenue. The townhouse features exposed brick walls—both original and whitewashed— hardwood floors, and lovely arched windows.
The focal point of the parlor floor is a modern chef’s kitchen with black granite countertops and maple cabinets. Included among the high-end stainless steel appliances is a steam oven. The island has bar seating for four, and there’s a dining area and living room for entertaining. And you can take that entertaining outside if you want, because a set of French doors in the kitchen open to an outdoor terrace.
Upstairs, there are three large bedrooms and two full baths—one with striking black tile and a claw foot tub. In fact, you might notice some other bold design choices in the home, namely a textured wall off the living room that reminds us of that childhood origami fortune teller game. The upper level also has a windowed workspace with a desk, and down in the finished basement there’s partial storage. Plus, enjoy even more outdoor space with a private roof deck.
Fido gives 426 6th Avenue two paws up for its short, three-block walk to Prospect Park, while you can check out all the hot dining and shopping spots Park Slope has to offer.
