Garfield Place Townhouse Debuts With Whopping $9M Ask

New, 24 comments

The townhouses of Park Slope don't want to be left out of the blockbuster listing party going on in Manhattan right now. The result is a new listing for 312 Garfield Place, a 9BR, 5.5BA townhouse that's now asking?brace?$9 million. The townhouse at least knows how to make its case, with a truly epic page of brokerbabble. Here's an excerpt:

The parlor floor offers a formal foyer with box beam ceilings, a Piers mirror, and grand hand carved wood staircase all in mahogany, leading to a four parlor suite with three gorgeous onyx and tile fireplaces. The front parlor has high ceilings and a wide bay window which brings in a lot of light and is complimented with stained glass panels. The columned music room opens to a spacious, handsome library featuring grand mahogany bookcases with original beveled glass and French polish finish standing floor to ceiling. There is a stunning fireplace with original gas insert and stained glass pocket doors. The fourth parlor is an impressive 25 ft deep sumptuous formal dining room with striking tiger grain oak woodwork, hand carved columns with china hutch & mantle and large stained glass window and skylight. Tucked away from view is a modern half bath, a butler's pantry with granite countertops and a hidden second staircase that leads down to the garden floor and a grand chef's kitchen. The tipster who passed along the listing describes the property as "dated," and the listing essentially admits the same: "this is a rare and exceptional opportunity to own a historic brownstone that has hardly changed over its 100 year history." It was first building by developer William Flannigan in 1901, "in the sedate expression of Victorian & Renaissance traditions" popular at the time. Here's the floorplan:
