SINGLE-FAMILY HOME | FOUR BEDROOMS | THREE BATHROOMS
On one of Park Slope’s most prime and leafy-green blocks, 171 Garfield Place is an amazing opportunity to own a thoughtfully and stunningly renovated single-family townhouse in the middle of one of Brooklyn’s most coveted neighborhoods. Set on an extra-deep 150-foot lot, this turn of the century house was seamlessly upgraded with sophisticated yet warm details, creating both historic charm along with elegant, high-end finishes. The single family home is laid out as a Garden Level den/garden room, wet bar, office/bedroom with murphy bed, and a large full bath; Parlor Level kitchen, living room, and dining room; two bedrooms with a full bath on the 3rd floor; and master suite along with a sitting room at the top of the house for maximum privacy. A finished basement complete with rock climbing wall and home theater with surround sound creates bonus space for kids to play, or to use as a gym, media room, or workspace.
Truly a home for all seasons, the parlor floor was designed with a wall of glass Nana doors that completely open up to a large terrace with an Ipe wood deck and built-in planters, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor space overlooking an extra deep and lush landscaped garden. Enjoy the warmth of a gas burning fireplace in your living room while having the feeling of being surrounded by foliage created by this truly remarkable space. The enormous chef’s kitchen is outfitted with chef's grade appliances, including a Wolf range, Sub Zero fridge, and Miele dishwasher. A huge center island with an abundance of custom cabinetry creates generous space for cooking and entertaining.
Up the elegant staircase you will find two generous bedrooms connected by a wall of custom closets, a bathroom with a beautiful claw-foot tub, and full size washer/dryer. The light and airy master suite at the top of the house is the jewel, with its spa shower, sitting room, skylights, and endless custom closets.
Some of the many upgrades to this spectacular home include a new roof, boiler, hot water heater, all new plumbing and electric, Tensui whole house water filter system, oak floors, and landscaped front and back garden with a playhouse, irrigation system, raised bed, and black walnut terrace. Set moments to all of the raved about Park Slope shops and restaurants, glorious Prospect Park, and many subways including the B, Q, 2, 3, F, and G trains. First showing at the open house Sunday, May 13th. A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a truly beautiful, move-in home.
