Overview

This limestone mansion perched on Prospect Park is certainly among New York City’s most spectacular homes. Replete with turn-of-the-century detail yet finished with the most modern amenities, perfectly integrated to create a seamless and breathtaking masterpiece which is both boundlessly elegant and so easy to live in. Built in 1899, and designed by renowned architect Montrose W. Morris, this mansion sits on the corner of Prospect Park West and Carroll Street. Featuring utterly glorious original detail throughout including stained glass windows, mahogany columns, herringbone floors and delicately carved mantels and five working gas fireplaces, to name but a few. Sun floods into the home from three sides, including the largest with south facing exposure. 25’ wide with stately proportions throughout, words do not do justice to the beauty of the detail and scale of this home.

The glorious parlor floor greets with soaring coffered ceilings and intricate carved wood details, a corner living room overlooking Prospect Park with a working gas fireplace and onyx mantel, a stunning formal dining room with fireplace, a built-in china cabinet and corner vitrine, plus a gorgeous butler’s pantry with hammered copper countertops, storage, sink and dishwasher.

On the home’s garden level is the one of the most beautiful and functional kitchens you’ll see. It features handcrafted cabinetry, a massive center marble island beneath a Lindsey Adelman chandelier, top of the line appliances including glass fronted Subzero fridge, 48” La Cornue range, two dishwashers, and a convenient tucked away pantry. Find a cozy sitting area centered around the fireplace, looking out into the home’s gated garden. And while it’s hard to know what is most stunning in this home, one possibility is the 600-bottle wine cellar sublimely tucked under the home’s stoop, both a visual and functional gem.

The top three floors of the home present one massive bedroom after another. The master bedroom has soundproof windows and faces onto the green canopy of Prospect Park. A dressing room of birdseye maple with stained glass and marble counter sits in the middle of this floor and transports you back in time. The second bedroom on this floor is equally gracious as the first and like the master, also has a working gas fireplace. The bathroom is chic and lush with a massive glass shower stall.

The children’s floor above, has two enormous bedrooms and a magical sunny library with original casement windows and cushioned bench that begs you to curl up with a book or a loved one. The front bedroom has a stone planting balcony facing Prospect Park. The bathroom is whimsical and utterly lovely. With double sinks and a massive tub that is nothing short of a piece of art, a lovely spot for evening bath time.

The top floor of the house has three additional rooms, one beautifully built with a hidden kitchenette that folds away, but is equally beautiful on display as well as acclimatized A/V storage rooms. The central room is the perfect cozy media room, which has an enormous storage closet, and the last, the ideal guest room adjacent to a classically finished bath with claw-foot tub. Full sized vented laundry is located on both the garden and top floors. A dumbwaiter travels from garden to 4th floor for ease of living. Plus all of the modern conveniences expected in a home of this caliber - central air conditioning and humidification system, Savant home automation including integrated sound system throughout, security system, central vacuum, and impeccable mechanical systems.

Pure perfection in Park Slope.
