Take one look at the old-world wine cellar at this Park Slope brownstone, and it’ll make perfect sense that the owners are selling because they’re winemakers relocating to California. And the absolutely gorgeous home, listed for $6 million, also has plenty of places to enjoy a nice glass of vino, including four outdoor spaces. The townhouse was completely renovated, retaining its impeccable historic details, while adding modern conveniences and a wonderful, income-producing apartment on the garden floor.

This townhouse at 179 Midwood Street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens was built as a classic limestone residence in 1905, but in 2012, local firm von Dalwig transformed it into a modern, serene family home. By removing interior walls and opening up the rear facade to the garden, the architects were able to “accommodate the open living and views desired within a compact house and lot,” according to their project page. The three-bedroom house is now listed for $2,350,000.
