19th-century Park Slope carriage house with airy renovation sells for $6.6M

The sale is one of the priciest in the history of Park Slope

Well that was quick. Just three months after hitting the market, the converted carriage house at 77 Prospect Place has snagged a buyer. The property hit the market for the first time in over a decade in June asking $7.5 million. Despite its lovely design, thanks to a 2004 renovation by Philippe Baumann, the property sold for nearly $1 million less than its asking price, at $6.6 million.

The sale, with Paul Gavriani and Vincent Falcone at Corcoran, is one of the priciest in the history of Park Slope.

To recap, per our previous coverage: The Baumann renovation transformed the 1899 house into a contemporary, airy home by adding a rooftop extension that lines the top of the house with windows. The beamed ceiling of the top-floor great room extends past the threshold of the house to create an overhang for the front balcony, one of several outdoor spaces including a landscaped yard.

New materials like Heart of Pine mix with the building’s original exposed black steel beams and brick and timber walls, to create an aesthetic the brokerbabble aptly calls “at once spacious and contemporary, with a warm and gracious feel.”

The kitchen sports all of the highest-end appliances like a Wolf range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, and the four bathrooms have all been individually designed. (One has a glass shower stall that opens onto a rear terrace with a hot tub.)
