Unique opportunity to rent a beautifully furnished, historic townhouse with unsurpassed wood work and detail. This gracious early 20th Century limestone is available the end of August through mid-November 2017. Located on a quiet, landmark, tree-lined residential block in the heart of Park Slope, this stunning home resides in one of Brooklyn's most desirable neighborhoods.
The furnished house has Victorian and Arts and Crafts details with modern touches. Original parquet floors, stained glass, wood paneling, mosaic tile, and Stickley furniture decorate the rooms. All three stories and finished basement are available for your use in this rare single-family home. The first floor has a double-parlor living room; formal dining room; renovated cooks country kitchen with high-end appliances and a skylight transporting you from Park Slope to Provence. A door off the kitchen opens onto a deck with a gas grill and then stairs leading down to a charming, manicured, peaceful garden. On the second floor are two large bedrooms or home offices and a renovated designer bathroom with tub/shower. The master bedroom on the third floor is generously sized. Also on the top floor is the fourth large bedroom and a renovated bathroom with marble topped double vanity, custom-made oak built-ins, a skylight, and huge combination tub/shower. Laundry is no longer a chore: take a short stair case from the kitchen to the charming, finished English basement complete with a window view to the courtyard. A convenient, lovely half bath is nearby.
Prospect Park, Frederick Law Olmsteds magnum opus (he also designed Central Park), with its leafy walkways and bike paths is steps away. Seventh Avenue, the main shopping area, with abundant stores, restaurants and services, is three blocks away. The house is a stroll to Grand Army Plaza, where there is a year-round Saturday farmers market and the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Another 10 minute stroll away and you arrive at the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Gardens. One subway stop, or a 30-minute walk, brings you to the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the house. Central air conditioning and utilities included. No smoking and strictly no pets please.
