Not only does this super-cute brick townhouse promise plenty of space for the whole family without leaving the civilization of New York City, but it conjures up a totally different, laid-back and innocent time and place. This home at 207 Windsor Place mixes Arts and Crafts-style details with an old fashioned American house layout, with a big eat-in kitchen that opens into a formal dining room, a catnap-ready front sun porch, a basement ready for whatever you’d like to make it—and four bedrooms at the end of the day. All of this sits at the Park Slope/Windsor Terrace border two blocks from Prospect Park and a block from subways, shopping, dining, cafes and everything Brooklyn neighborhoods are loved for today.

This three-story brick townhouse on a classic Brooklyn block just south of Prospect Park offers four bedrooms and a flexible floor plan that encompasses 2,900 square feet. In addition to plenty of space for living and entertaining, the pre-war home boasts many original details including hardwood flooring, stairs and banisters, stained glass windows and skylights, beveled glass door accents and more.

Emblematic of the Arts & Crafts movement, exposed wood can be found throughout in the home’s moldings and beams. Through the large dining room in the oversized eat-in kitchen you’ll find plenty of space for prep and storage including abundant cabinetry and a walk-in pantry.

The private back terrace is perfect for grilling and al fresco dining, and a large garden provides an all-season view from the kitchen. A grand staircase lit by a stained glass skylight leads to the home’s private quarters.

The three-windowed master suite has an ensuite bath and two sizable closets; three other bedrooms each have spacious closets and access to another full skylit bath. The rear bedroom, in a 237-square-foot extension, is surrounded on three sides by windows.

Down on the basement level there’s more space for conveniences. There’s a large laundry room with a full-size washer-dryer and sink, a powder room and more storage. Two additional large rooms could become a  home gym, playroom, library, wine cellar, craft room–or whatever else you envision.
