It’s everything you imagine a classic brownstone to be. For nearly 50 years this townhouse at 266 Berkeley Place in Park Slope has been under the careful stewardship of a single owner, and the love they showered on their home is evident in every one of its four floors—even the basement is immaculate with its whitewashed walls and brick archways.
Starting with the parlor level’s stunning mahogany pocket doors, rich wood details permeate all 4,300 square feet of the residence —from pier mirrors and ornamental woodwork to intricate fireplaces and showcase windows. The original craftsmanship and subsequent care of the exquisite architectural details, including gorgeous Victorian tile in two of the bathrooms, make this $3.5 million gem a rare find.
Situated on a landmarked block in the North Slope, the legal-two family is currently serving as a luxurious single home featuring a redesigned open-plan center kitchen, an opulently appointed formal dining room large enough to seat a dinner party of twelve, an oversized and comfortable front-facing living room, six bedrooms and a huge recreation room.
A set of double doors leads out onto a 170-square-foot deck—a delightful alternative when the evening demands al fresco dining, and a delicate spiral stair leads down to a beautifully planted garden with pergola. Mere blocks from Prospect Park, express trains, Saturday’s Greenmarket, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Garden, this home is anxiously awaiting the next lucky owner to appreciate its classic charm and ideal location.
