This colorful co-op at 487 6th Avenue in Park Slope three blocks from Prospect Park is brimming with vintage-modern charm throughout its two custom-designed levels. The duplex–currently being used as a two-bedroom–is asking $1,050,000, and it’s uniqueness goes beyond decor. Just a few cool features in 1,100 square feet of indoor space include a customized office area with a built-in library nook with antique salvage doors and windows and an original mural hand-painted by a celebrated picture book maker; at the rear, a one-of-a kind treehouse overlooks a landscaped garden.
The first, garden level is framed by 11-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick.
The open-concept space is divided into living, dining and kitchen areas, each uniquely-designed using modern materials and subtle but eye-catching colors and materials. An office/library is tucked into a nook over the stairs.
Two exposures fill the king-sized master bedroom with southern light. This charming chamber opens right out to a whimsical Brooklyn garden. The master bath has dual sinks, distinctive salvaged bathroom doors and a soaking tub.
The lower level offers a family playroom and sleeping quarters big enough for bunk bed beneath a wood-beamed ceiling. Also down here is a renovated half bath. Given the layout, the configurations you can choose are many, from the current two-bedroom plan to using the lower level as a home office and guest space to creating a third bedroom. The building offers private storage, bike storage and laundry in the common basement.
