A nearly 4,100-square-foot townhouse on a row of stately limestone buildings in Park Slope has hit the market asking $2.995 million.

The house, which dates back to the turn of the 20th century, is currently laid out as a two-family home, with an owner’s duplex and a smaller two-bedroom on the top floor, but it could be converted to a single-family space. Overall, there are four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a large (but unfinished) basement with a laundry room.

There are plenty of nice original details here, chief among them the dark wood moldings and wainscoting that can be found throughout the parlor floor, several large bay windows, and decorative fireplaces. Both the duplex and the apartment above it are pretty spacious—the house is 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep, with high ceilings throughout.

The entryway leads to the duplex, which has a formal living and dining room, as well as a kitchen, on the lower floor. (We’re not sure why there’s a pink spiral staircase, though.) There’s also a spacious garden, which the listing says is “the perfect place to plant or just relax.” (There are no photos, so it may need some work.)

There are two large bedrooms and an office on the floor above that, and that floor could accommodate a terrace. The entire third floor is dedicated to the two-bedroom apartment, which has its own kitchen and smaller living room.

The house is also in an excellent location: It’s on Fourth Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues—just outside of the Park Slope Historic District, but only a couple of blocks away from Prospect Park, as well as restaurants and shopping.

This lovely home at 429 4th Street in Park Slope, asking $2.995 million, is listed by Mark Jovanovic and Scott Hustis at Compass.
