This $6M Park Slope mansion is as stunning inside as it is outside, from finished basement to green roof
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.
