The Artful Park Slope Duplex of a Photography Industry Exec Lists for $3.6M
The Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn is highly sought after because of its lively community members and public spaces. Another bonus to the area is its historic brownstones and townhouses, one of which holds a duplex that just hit the market. Owned by photography industry veteran Leslie Simitch, who has worked with world-famous photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, the apartment is listed for $3.6 million.
Currently the Executive Vice President of Trunk Archive, Simitch’s home reflects her career and her deep appreciation of design. The spaces feature diverse photography and wall decor throughout, pulling the eye around each room magnetically. Contrasted against traditional features like black lattice windows and original details like the Arts & Crafts staircase, the duplex is an eclectic and cozy abode. When one enters the home at the ground level and goes upstairs, cherry red built-in bookcases hold treasures and trinkets, but also a surprise twist. These stylish shelves serve as a hidden door, leading to a powder room and coat closet.
From this vibrant foyer, flow on to the home’s living and entertaining spaces as well as a dine-in galley-style kitchen that opens to a private balcony. Light dances in through the windows and continues upstairs to the floor that holds all three bedrooms. While the hallway bathroom features blue hues and a deep tub, the primary ensuite is bright and airy and opens to another terrace.
To top off the home’s two interior levels, the private rooftop is the home’s ultimate outdoor haven. A Brookly oasis, the photogenic listing is held by Mary Ellen Cashman of Compass.
