Description

A wonderfully rare opportunity to purchase a renovated-to-perfection C.P.H Gilbert designed brownstone mansion. Located steps from Prospect Park, this special home is a treasured example of Victorian-era architecture on Park Slope's most celebrated street. The AIA Guide to New York City describes Montgomery Place as, "one of the truly great blocks in the world of urbane row housing..a symphony of materials and textures". Spanning one block between Prospect Park West and Eighth Avenue, Montgomery Place provides a quiet respite from city life.

This exceptional 22' wide townhouse features a massive, 3-story, curved, triple-bay window, a whimsical gabled roof and a special combination of Romanesque Revival and Queen Anne style exterior finishes. A legal 2-family, five story brownstone, it is currently used as a luxurious 1-family home with 7 bedrooms, plus a den, four full and two half baths, four delightful outdoor spaces and a ground level floor set up as a large, lofty home gym with plenty of storage.

There is a gracious flow to the rooms and a high level of original craftsmanship inside and out - from its grand mantles, its gorgeous woodwork, stained glass transoms and beautiful original oak flooring - this is a treasured home without compare. The same level of finish and attention to detail has been employed by its current owners during their recent expansive renovations. There are custom plaster walls, gorgeous kitchens, beautifully appointed bathrooms and wonderfully smart updates throughout, including the addition of zoned central air conditioning.

PARLOR FLOOR
The parlor floor is the heart of the home. An impressive Romanesque Revival entryway above the stoop brings you into a spacious foyer. The living room is large and yet intimate. Its main seating area centers on a beautiful wood burning fireplace with carved mantle. Just beyond is a music room that flows to a large, wood paneled dining room, with a modern, oversized cook's kitchen at the rear. It seemingly hosts miles of beautiful marble counter space, a stainless steel Wolf range, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, wall ovens, a wine refrigerator and gorgeous custom-designed flat fronted cabinetry. It also offers plenty of room for more casual dining. Sleek, sliding doors bathe the kitchen with afternoon sun and lead out on to a sweet deck with steps down to a rear south-facing yard. There is also a powder room tucked away on this floor. The home's center oak staircase presents a gracious connection between floors.
THIRD FLOOR
The 3rd floor has an enormous, full-width family room with pretty views of Montgomery Place from its bay windows. The large, primary bedroom suite is privately situated in the rear of this floor. The bedroom lets light in from two exposures. It has a recently installed, modern gas fireplace. It also has a private home office, a walk-in-closet and a gorgeous bathroom with an oversized tub, separate shower and a gorgeous vanity with double sinks. There is a guest half-bathroom off the hallway nearest to the family room and laundry closet.
FOURTH FLOOR
The 4th floor has a massive front study with large picture windows, plus two generously sized bedrooms with ample closet space. There is a contemporary renovated bathroom on this floor as well. It is accessible from one of the bedrooms and the hall.
TOP FLOOR
The 5th floor of this home features a spectacular front bedroom. It has a unique and stunning set of original, arched windows. There is a special rear bedroom on this floor as well as a pretty, modern bathroom with a large windowed glass-enclosed shower. A large deck is off of the rear of this floor. The owners ingeniously installed a beautiful, modern kitchen area. It is perfectly situated for luxurious al fresco dining. Steps up from the deck take you to a glorious perch - a green roof, lushly planted with native flora, feed with its own irrigation system, providing spectacular views of Prospect Park, glorious Brooklyn rooftops and harbor views beyond. Wiring is in situ for the future installation of solar panels.
LOWER LEVEL
The lower level is currently used as a loft-like home gym, with a side bedroom and full bathroom. Full height sliding glass doors lead to a private walled rear garden. Storage and mechanicals are tucked away in the front room. This floor could easily be re-imagined to suit your heart's desire. Options include a guest suite, home offices, in-home theater, playroom or potentially reconfigured as a separate residence.
