Brooklyn, New York, United States

Description

In the heart of Park Slope, this 20’ wide home is ready for you. Designed by architect John E. Dwyer and built in 1891, 548 is one of a group of 5 townhouses in the Romanesque Revival style. With high stoops and a brownstone/brick facades, this is a lovely row of classic Park Slope homes.

Some of the salient features are:

Triplex over garden rental
Renovated open kitchen on the parlor floor
5+ bedrooms
3 full baths
South-facing landscaped garden
Large deck off the kitchen

The parlor floor has been completely updated. All woodwork was meticulously stripped, highlighting the beauty of 10 foot double doors, window shutters, and molding. Because this floor was re-configured from many small rooms into 2 large rooms, the floors are all new Brazilian cherry in a gorgeous herringbone pattern. The front parlor windows have stained glass transoms and the original glass panes. The mantle (salvaged from another project) highlights a wood-burning fireplace with a re-lined chimney.
The rear of the parlor floor is a spacious and open kitchen, installed 10 years ago. Custom cherry cabinets, hand-painted Portuguese tiles, a hand-forged copper hood and leaded glass cabinet fronts are the highlights. Appliances are:

electric wall oven and microwave
Bosch dishwasher
Bosch cooktop
GE Profile fridge (vented outside)

Sliding glass doors lead to the south-facing deck and garden. One of the loveliest gardens in Brooklyn awaits. Winding over the trellis and deck is a mature, flowering wisteria which explodes into lilac-colored blooms in May. In the garden is a white-flowering dogwood tree which is cloud-like in the spring and offers wonderful shade all summer. The garden is equally enjoyable from the deck or the garden itself.

A delicate stained glass skylight above the staircase provides an abundance of light to the floor and stairwell below. Above the parlor floor is a master suite. The front room has become a library/media room with cherry bookcases built to the owners’ design, and three large windows. The master bedroom faces the garden. Innovative closet design has yielded a large walk-in closet while retaining the original shallower closets. A master bath was renovated 10 years ago with terra cotta tiles and a Kohler soaking tub.

The top floor comprises two large and 1 small bedrooms, as well as another full bath and a large laundry room.

Under the stoop is a ready-to-rent 1 bedroom apartment with a large, eat-in kitchen and parquet floors.,In the heart of Park Slope, this 20’ wide home is ready for you. Designed by architect John E.
