This is what you have been waiting for: all the detail and elegance of an historic Center Park Slope townhouse with the ease and convenience of a condo. Welcome to a mint-condition 1,800 interior square foot duplex with a private garden and side terrace. All together, the duplex is 2,234 square feet: it is a legal one-bedroom currently used as a 3 bedroom with 2 full baths. Recently renovated with high-end finishes throughout the apartment and outdoor spaces. This duplex combines stunning original details with updated modern renovations. Enter the extra-large center parlor, loaded with original wood wainscoting and a fantastic burled oak mantle with leaded glass mirror. The entertaining possibilities are endless: light streams in from the front triple windows to the back glass doors at all times. The front parlor/living room has a featured burled oak pier mirror, triple windows and 9 foot ceilings. The well-appointed kitchen features stainless steel appliances, extra-large island with new Bosch dishwasher and Subzero counter-depth refrigerator and room to seat 10 (or more!). Sliding glass doors bring in light and lead to the stairs to the garden. The ribboned hardwood floors in the living room, center parlor and kitchen are original and maintained in mint-condition. On the garden level, there are two extra-large bedrooms. The master suite includes a large walk-in customized closet. There are sliding glass doors out to a private side terrace - perfect for a late-afternoon book read or a quiet moment on a too-hot day. The second bedroom has three windows overlooking both the garden and the side terrace. Each of these bedrooms will accommodate a king-sized bed with room to spare. The hallway closets also house full-sized vented washer and dryer. ... and the garden! For years to come, you will love the perennial selection of hydrangeas, bleeding hearts and more that have been professionally landscaped for your enjoyment. There is an irrigation system with timer to keep them healthy and blooming - even when you're away. The back garden has bluestone tiles and the lower side patio has custom Italian palazzo tile and trellis. Other amenities include central AC/Heating and a dedicated common storage space in the basement. Low common charges are $686 per month and taxes are approximately $529 per month. The building has been fastidiously maintained with recently replaced roofing, gutters and leaders and many other thoughtful upgrades to the common storage room and building mechanicals. There is truly nothing else like this on the market. A perfect house alternative in the very heart of Center Park Slope. 3 short blocks to Zoned Public School 321 and near all the restaurants and shops of 5th and 7th Avenues as well as Prospect Park.
