One of the stately early 20th-century homes lining Prospect Park West is still on the market for $5.895 million. The neo-Federal-style house, part of Park Slope’s Historic District, was built in 1919 and designed by architect W. J. McCarthy. Its two-story facade boasts Flemish bond brickwork and arched windows. Its interiors were recently gut-renovated by Delson or Sherman Architects, who added several lush outdoor spaces and a roof deck.

The three-bedroom townhome has four and a half bathrooms, a large living room, a gym and sauna in its basement, a dressing room (which is as large as another bedroom), a shared driveway, and several fireplaces. Some interior details include original trefoil windows, kitchen fixtures imported from France, a refurbished staircase, and original stained-glass windows.

About its (gorgeous) green spaces: There’s a landscaped garden at the entrance and another one in the back of the house with a fountain, ivy in the garage wall, and plantings. The roof deck offers views of Prospect Park and has its own share of flowers and a variety of plantings.

The home is located at 31 Prospect Park West, mere steps from Prospect Park and near the 2 and 3 at Grand Army Plaza. Taxes for the property are $1,948/month. Jennifer Taylor of Compass has the listing.
