Open House - SUNDAY APRIL 14 - Who wouldn't love this two-family brownstone located just a stone's throw from Prospect Park and swimming in charm. As you enter the welcoming parlor floor, you will be dazzled by the lovely foyer, classic staircase, and rich original period details. The surprisingly bright and inviting parlor floor with its expansive living area boasts many turn-of the century niceties including a stunning decorative fireplace as well as inlaid parquet floors, all in perfect condition. The windows, with their original shutters, look out to the tree-lined street leading to Prospect Park West. This generously sized living space graciously flows into the kitchen dining area, sunny, well-appointed and easy for entertaining. Designed with function and comfort in mind, the kitchen opens up to a large deck with a south facing park-like landscaped back yard, perfect for dining Al-fresco and finding your inner gardener. An ideal home for all seasons, perfect for entertaining both indoors and out. Once upstairs, you will fall in love with the tranquility of the four bedrooms. The clever and unique floorplan allows for an abundance of storage, privacy, as well as a thoughtfully designed Jack and Jill bathroom. The enchanting ambiance of the lower garden level is exceptionally delightful. Currently used as an income-producing one bedroom rental, it features original pine floors and mil work through-out the entire unit, again, all perfectly maintained. This two-family home can easily convert into a single unit home or just keep it as it is, living in the owner's duplex and simply collect the rent from the garden unit. Either way, this home is a gem and will provide you years of joy and value. Conveniently located a few doors away from Prospect Park with The Bandshell, the Nighthawk Theater, Farmers Markets and an array of public and private schools. One block from 2 subway lines and multiple buses. With so many restaurants and convenient shopping to choose from, it is no wonder that Park Slope remains one of New York's most sought-after neighborhoods.
