There’s nothing lovelier than the parlor floor of a brownstone, and this one at the historic 201 Saint Johns Place townhouse in Park Slope, is up for sale asking $1.5 million. The floor was converted into a two-bedroom co-op with some outdoor space, but it’s still dripping with details like the wood-burning fireplace mantle, original doors, moldings, ceiling medallions, window shutters, archway details and hardwood floors. It’s a long list of historical goodies, and they’ve all been well preserved within this four-unit cooperative townhouse, in which shareholders are expected to participate in taking care of the building.
The parlor floor is known for its long front windows and large door leading out to the entryway. Here, all the carved woodwork has been well preserved. This space is also lined with a wood-burning fireplace.
Moving back from the living room, you enter the kitchen, off of which there’s a little extra room to hold the washer/dryer unit.
The back of the parlor floor is currently one master bedroom, but it could be divided into two bedrooms. The bedroom is lined with three closets and leads out to the garden floor’s roof extension.
Right now the roof is being used as-is, a sort of makeshift outdoor space, but the listing notes that the “rights to the garden floor’s roof extension are yours to build your own terrace.”
The brownstone is located on a historic block between 7th and 8th avenues. It’s just about a block from Grand Army Plaza, the entrance to Prospect Park, and a block to the 7th Avenue Q train on Flatbush. From this location, you can easily walk into Park Slope, or over to Prospect Heights or Gowanus.
