An airy brownstone in Park Slope’s historic district on a “picture-perfect” block has just listed for $5.35 million.

The 3,896-square-foot property has six bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, an office, a garden, multiple fireplaces, and a deck. The recently renovated house kept some of its original prewar details including pocket doors and a mirrored bar cabinet. Other interior details include Ipe hardwood floors and a spiral staircase.

Since the garden level area includes a bedroom, dining room, kitchen, and full bath; it could be used as a separate unit for rent, the listing suggests. The unit is currently rented for $2,850/month but, the listing says, but can be delivered vacant.

According to the Landmarks Preservation Commission historic designation report, the brownstone was built in 1890 by Brooklyn architect Fred Griswold, as part of a row of four Romanesque Revival houses.

The property is located at 505 1st Street, between Eight and Seventh avenues, a block away from Prospect Park and near the Grand Army Plaza subway station. Lynn Tesser and Tin Martin of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
