The stately limestone townhouse at 615 Third Street embodies the dream of Park Slope living within the landmarked, historic blocks that surround Prospect Park. Asking $6,995,000, the four-story single-family home spans 4,550 square feet, including a triplex anchored by a ground-floor apartment. Built in 1899, this iconic property is filled with meticulously restored historic details that form a backdrop for equally considered top-of-the-line renovations.
Historic details within the 20-foot-wide townhouse include parlor columns, stained glass windows and skylights, and pristine millwork of mahogany, birdseye maple, and cherry. Detailed moldings and a wood-burning fireplace (one of three in the home) frame the parlor floor’s living spaces. A rear extension holds a back parlor with east-facing stained glass windows.
Rich parquet wood floors underscore the home’s open, spacious parlor rooms. Security cameras, Sonos audio, and multi-zoned temperature control assure 21st-century comfort.
A large, luxurious kitchen has everything needed for gourmet dining and entertaining. A granite-topped island anchors the space, which is outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances including an eight-burner Wolf range with a double oven and a paneled refrigerator. A charming powder room adds convenience and a spark of modern design to the parlor floor.
The townhouse contains five bedrooms with four ensuite bathrooms. The south-facing primary suite boasts all-day sunlight and a Juliet Balcony. A massive custom dressing room is lined with closets and drawers; just beyond, the attendant bath is a true pampering oasis, with a stand-alone tub and two-person vanity, lit by a charming bay window.
Additional bedrooms make perfect lounge, library, and den spaces, joined by a cozy home office. Bathrooms are design showcases that combine charming historic finishes with high-end fixtures.
The home offers the Brooklyn indulgence of two private outdoor spaces. A landscaped rooftop, complete with water, electricity, and gas is accessible through a bulkhead. Downstairs, you can step onto a bluestone-paved patio from the separate ground-floor apartment. On the home’s lowest level, a well-lit cellar offers storage.
