Pristine in Park Slope: A Refreshed Circa-1899 Brownstone with Personality Lists for $7.25M
Surely hearing the words “artsy” and “Brooklyn” in the same sentence is nothing new, but perhaps not in the way this home combines the terms. The beauty of this Park Slope brownstone comes in waves, literally. Just look at the parlor level’s hand-painted Gracie Studio wallpaper. Colorful and quirky, yet sleek in all the right places, the five-story townhouse isn’t afraid to break the rules or stand out. And for $7.25 million, someone can call its expressive spaces home.
With the circa-1899 facade beautifully restored and the interiors designed by Kevin Isbell boasting a mix of styles, the five-bedroom Brooklyn townhouse is a design wonderland. It is also brimming with architectural surprises. As you wander through the spaces, customizations are everywhere. A custom staircase adds beauty to getting from level to level, with the basement floor acting as a subterranean haven for amenities like the custom-designed 300-bottle wine cellar. The kitchen, another one-of-a-kind space, boasts a juxtaposition of dark marble and white stone for a dash of modern drama.
However, a new owner may understandably be most interested in the primary suite. Along with whimsical walls and green views, it offers a sublime private terrace for moments of peace and quiet. Then, with a huge closet and bathroom drenched in sunshine by a huge skylight, it becomes the ultimate relaxation destination.
When it’s time for everyone to gather outside, the garden is no doubt the best setting. It has room to create chic seating areas and a fence so one can admire the back exterior or entertain without prying eyes. After all, at a price point of $7.25 million, privacy is not just a luxury, but an expectation.
Lindsay Barton Barrett, Bradley Rodenberg, and Lena Lerner of Douglas Elliman hold the listing at 527 Third Street.
