No neighbors above or below, this is your own entire house! Four full floors of living, plus a full height cellar and a landscaped garden. Entering on the parlor floor, one is greeted by original and restored...

carved wood doors and frames, parquet flooring, crown molding and a mirrored bench with carved dragon armrests. The full 45-foot length of the parlor level is dedicated to living and dining areas, separated by original pocket doors. The front parlor has 11ft high ceilings and glorious southern sunlight through 8ft tall windows. The rear parlor features a handsome carved wood and tiled mantle and a hidden wet bar in the closet. A separate entrance on the garden level leads to a cozy den area in front with a pass through to an expansive eat-in kitchen in the rear. French doors open up onto a paved patio area that's perfect for outdoor dining, and the landscaped garden beyond. There's a full bathroom and jumbo washer/dryer on this floor, as well as access to the semi-finished cellar with its handsome row of brick arch supports. The upper two floors of the house are dedicated to bedrooms. The third floor has a huge south-facing master suite with a beautifully renovated and cleverly sky-lit bathroom, along with another large bedroom in the rear. Two more bedrooms upstairs share a pass-through bathroom, nicely renovated with a sky-lit shower. A third smaller bedroom on this floor works perfectly as a home office or gym. All of the bedrooms have high ceilings, gorgeous refinished pine floors, and original stone mantles, wood shutters and crown molding. Designed by architect J.J. Gilligan and built in 1888, this Neo-Grec style brownstone with full-height two-sided bay windows, is situated on a stunning landmarked block. Fantastically convenient North Park Slope location, between 6th and 7th Ave, within a few blocks of Prospect Park and the B,Q,2,3 trains. The Park Slope Food Coop is on the next block down and there is even an excellent coffee shop right across the street. This is truly an exceptional opportunity to have a piece of prime Brooklyn all to yourself.
