There are few things New York buyers love more than prewar detail, modern updates, and a great location. Well, this parlor-floor apartment of the brownstone at 917 President Street has all that wrapped up with nice wooden bow. The two-bedroom 1,350-square-foot co-op was lovingly renovated to preserve its origins while catering to the needs of the modern day homeowner, all while offering a relaxing haven on a tree-lined street in Park Slope. If wood isn’t your thing, consider yourself warned, but if you have an appreciation for exquisite millwork you’ll love the charm of this $1.495 million unit.
Enter to find a massive living and dining room space with 14-foot ceilings, beautiful bay windows, and enough bookshelves to incorporate a dewey decimal system. Restored stained glass adorning the tops of the windows and sliding ladders for the bookshelves add to the romantic charm of the space. The room also has a decorative fireplace surrounded by an elaborately carved mahogany mantle with marble detail.
Walk through wood and stained glass pocket doors to find the master bedroom, which features a double-height window and a second decorative fireplace. A smaller third bedroom has the third fireplace, along with some original hardwood floors.
At the back of the unit, a renovated chef’s kitchen boasts natural stone countertops and high-end appliances. Next to it is a newly renovated bathroom with subway tile walls, radiant heat floors of woven marble tile, and a Jacuzzi spa soaking tub/shower combo. A linen closet off the bathroom comes with storage space and a full washer and dryer.
Speaking of storage, the hallway has an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling custom closets. Additional perks include an office nook and wine storage. The downside: no pets.
917 President Street is a five-story brownstone close to Prospect Park, the farmer’s market, and all the shops and restaurants 7th Avenue has to offer.
