Looking for a splendidly eclectic (and perfectly gorgeous) Park Slope townhouse? You’re in luck, with the listing of the six-bedroom limestone home at 542 1st Street. The townhouse is less than one block off Prospect Park and offers up 4,610 square feet of interior living space plus a spring-ready back patio for $5.395 million.
The townhouse has been redone with high-end finishes by its current owners, who purchased the four-story house for $3.45 million in 2007. The owners have chosen to use the front room near the main entrance as a dining room, bending the unwritten rule that the Park Slope townhouse must have its sitting room near the entry (see: here, here, and here.) Instead, they’ve opted to put the living area at the townhouse’s rear. The move puts the property’s two wood-burning fireplaces on display, rather than behind a table.
The kitchen overlooks the spacious garden and has been updated with custom lacquered mill work, Caesarstone countertops, a Wolf gas stove and range, and a Miele dishwasher. Five of the apartments six bedrooms are upstairs, including the master suite with custom closets, an en suite bathroom, and a terrace overlooking the neighborhood’s rooftops.
The garden level has been finished with a lock-off studio apartment and also includes a den and full bathroom for additional entertaining space. The house has been upgraded with central air conditioning and radiant heated floors in the bathrooms.
