Lovely brownstone in Park Slope’s historic district asks $5.35M

The three-story property has a deck and a garden

An airy brownstone in Park Slope’s historic district on a
“picture-perfect” block has
just listed
for $5.35 million.

The 3,896-square-foot property has six bedrooms, three and a
half bathrooms, an office, a garden, multiple fireplaces, and a
deck. The recently renovated house kept some of its original prewar
details including pocket doors and a mirrored bar cabinet. Other
interior details include Ipe hardwood floors and a spiral
staircase.

Since the garden level area includes a bedroom, dining room,
kitchen, and full bath; it could be used as a separate unit for
rent, the listing suggests. The unit is currently rented for
$2,850/month but, the listing says, but can be delivered
vacant.

According to the Landmarks Preservation Commission historic
designation report
, the brownstone was built in 1890 by
Brooklyn architect Fred Griswold, as part of a row of four
Romanesque Revival houses.

The property is located at
505 1st Street
, between Eight and Seventh avenues, a block away
from Prospect Park and near the Grand Army Plaza subway station.
Lynn Tesser and Tin Martin of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
