127 Park Place, living room, park slope

As the listing says, this upper duplex apartment overlooks “the leafy treetops of Park Slope.” Located at 127 Park Place, a lovely brownstone and treelined block of the neighborhood, you do get a good view of Brooklyn from the windows. The interior isn’t too bad either, with high and detailed ceilings, fireplaces, the original wood floors, and plenty of other original details. There’s no outdoor space, but there is potential to build out a roof deck up top.

So how much does it cost to buy up half a historic townhouse? For three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, the price tag comes in at $2.19 million. It’s high, but not too far off given that full townhouses in the neighborhood can go for $4 million.

The comfortably-configured co-op at 459 12th Street in South Park Slope starts with two levels and lots of open space–and you have the opportunity to go beyond the current two-bedroom configuration with nooks and corners that lend themselves to being used as bedrooms or opened up, loft-style. On the market for $1.2 million, this two-bedroom loft offers a wealth of charming architectural details like weathered brick walls, double-height ceilings in the main areas, a wood-burning fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. Oversized windows offer Manhattan skyline views (the apartment is a third-floor walk-up, so great light, but no elevator).

212 Saint James Place, cool listing, townhouses, historic homes, Park slope, park slope townhouse for sale, brownstone, brooklyn, Mayor William J. Gaynor, William Gaynor,

On an impossibly lovely landmarked brownstone block near the border between north Park Slope and Prospect Heights, the 1890s townhouse at 212 Saint Johns Place is a testament to the idea that they don’t make them like this anymore. This historic brownstone, on the market for $3.895 million, will definitely appeal to anyone smitten with the idea of living in a beautifully preserved home from the 19th century rather than constructing a modern interior with contemporary flair. Once the home of New York City mayor William J. Gaynor (1910-1913), this two-family neo-Grec townhouse is filled with original architectural details from parquet wood floors, richly-carved mahogany trim and ten-foot parlor floor doors to the exquisite wood-carved cabinet built into the third floor landing.

Pavilion Theater, Morris Adjmi, Park Slope

Rendering of Hidrock Realty’s proposed design for a five-story residential building next to the historic Pavilion Theater.

Hidrock Realty, developer of a five-story condo building next to the historic Pavilion Theater on Prospect Park West, was told by the Landmarks Preservation Commision to make changes to the proposed design after neighbors expressed concerns, DNAinfo reports.

Park Slope neighbors in attendance at an LPC hearing Tuesday voiced disapproval for the Morris Adjmi-designed five-story beige brick residential building, fearing that it would “open the door to out-of-character development up and down Prospect Park West.”

429 7th Avenue, loft, Park Slope

Talk about quirky… this is a property you don’t see in Brooklyn every day. The unit in question is located at 429 7th Avenue, in Park Slope. It’s a duplex with a kooky sleeping loft instead of a bedroom, a unique layout, and a really nice private backyard. It’s not going to be for everyone but that outdoor space, plus a location two blocks west of Prospect Park, will certainly appeal to some. Don’t mind the idea of curling up in a loft to go to bed? Well, the apartment is now for sale by owner asking $629,000.

121 Lincoln Place, park slope, brownstone

Talk about a garden to die for. This Park Slope brownstone at 121 Lincoln Place has a backyard we wish we could camp out in this summer. The “private, lush, botanical landscaped garden,” as the listing calls it, impressively extends over 86 feet. There’s a shade garden in the back and a sun garden in the middle, not to mention two separate patios. As for the greenery, you’ve got roses, hydrangeas, honeysuckle, a rhododendron, azaleas, lilies, evergreen shrubs, a cypress, hemlock and more. Is the outdoor space enough to sell you on this home? Luckily, the interior isn’t too bad either. It’s on the market now for $3.795 million.

Could this one-bedroom co-op, located at 404 3rd Street in Park Slope, blend right in in Paris?

5 Plaza Street West, Park Slope

A short walk from Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza is a row of four neo-classical townhouses that have been presiding over Plaza Street West in Park Slope since the late 1800s. Anyone strolling past will be instantly charmed by the intricately carved cornices, striking wrought iron doors, and relief-cast designs gracing the limestone façades. As beautiful as they are on the outside, one can only imagine what treasures can be found inside. And the residence at #5 does not disappoint.

593 3rd St Park Slope

Did we get your attention? With the upcoming release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, a wider audience will no doubt become familiar with Christian Grey’s infamous “red room”. But we’re guessing a very different kind of decadence is likely to be served up in the partially red (okay, it was a bit of a stretch) and very proper formal dining room located on the parlor level of this neo-Italian Renaissance limestone townhouse at 593 3rd Street in Park Slope.
