Just around the corner from Prospect Park at 60 Montgomery Place, this historic two-family head-turner of a townhouse is in good company, but four stories of preserved and perfectly renovated interiors and a few surprises set it apart from its elegant Park Slope neighbors. In addition to a finished basement, plaster walls, central air and a private garden, this distinctive home, asking $5.995 million, is crowned by a green roof with park views.
On the 22-foot-wide home’s first level you’ll find a charming, bay-windowed sitting room at the front, framed by new wood floors, a marble fireplace and an original crystal chandelier. Also on this floor are a piano room, mahogany-clad dining room and a powder room.
The eat-in chef’s kitchen is modern and hard-working with a 19th century reclaimed European encaustic tile floor and contemporary wood cabinetry, a recycled glass tile backsplash, Danby marble countertops and premium stainless steel Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Doors from the kitchen open onto a private deck.
On the second floor is a spacious master suite with a gas fireplace, a walk-in closet, a home office, and full bath. Adjacent is a light-filled den with wood trimmed bay windows. Convenient additions include a powder room and a laundry closet.
On the home’s third level you’ll find a bright, roomy den and two more bedrooms. A full bath features handmade Moroccan floor tiles.
On the fourth floor are two more bedrooms, a full bath and a kitchenette area–who wants to go all the way downstairs for coffee? One of the two bedrooms features a vaulted ceiling and an oversized decorative window.
Just in case you aren’t thoroughly impressed, this distinctive dwelling is topped by a roof deck made with ipe wood reclaimed from the Coney Island Boardwalk. Up here you’ll find park views and a verdant irrigated green roof .
Back downstairs, the home’s English basement offers even more space for a playroom or home gym with sliding glass doors to the yard, plus storage. There is an additional bedroom and full bathroom here as well.
