It’s pretty rare to come across an historic home that manages to be “sophisticated and elegant” with “prolific original architectural details” and also be a block from Prospect Park. But this amazing Park Slope townhouse, a restored Romanesque brownstone, “perfectly integrates historic detailing with a modern sensibility” and boasts a professional-grade gym in the basement and a private landscaped rose garden.

The 6,000 square feet of perfection at 178 Eighth Avenue, which probably already has plenty of offers over its $8 million ask, is luxurious in the best possible way, from gorgeous chandeliers to wall treatments that have plenty of flair but never veer into the whimsical or look “decorated.” There’s not an ostentatious frill or questionable architectural choice in sight; no Hermès leather walls. No spotlit purse-cochere. It’s almost too understated in places, but not even close to austere.

Take a look at the house and fail to drool.
