EXQUISITE HISTORIC DISTRICT BROWNSTONE WITH PRIVATE ROOF DECK 26 8TH AVENUE, APT 5 Kindly note that all showings and open houses are by appointment only with advance notice required for COVID protocol compliance. Please contact Seller's agent listed above this description. YOUR HOME Welcome to this exquisite, two-bedroom apartment with home office crowning the top floor of 26 8th Avenue, a landmarked, boutique brownstone cooperative in the idyllic Park Slope Historic District. With abundant natural light streaming through oversized southern, eastern, and western exposures and skylights, dramatic, ten-foot-high ceilings, and wood-burning fireplace, this home is a crown jewel of Sportsmen's Row. In a nod to the history of this fine 1890 brownstone, substantial antique pocket doors and elaborate custom walnut casing have been installed, along with chandeliers and restored original millwork. Anchored by the handsome decorative fireplace, the living and entertaining space is generous. Both oversized bedrooms have seen extensive upgrades, with the addition of abundant closet space and historically appropriate brass and glass hardware. The stunning, gut-renovated main bedroom suite boasts soaring eight-foot-high doors, wide custom French doors dividing bedroom and home office, and molding to complement the original millwork throughout the rest of the home. The suite is graced by new chevron hardwood floors and a contemporary, spa-like bathroom with large James Martin vanity and mirror, glass-enclosed bathtub and shower, new tile on all four walls, and refreshed lighting. Most spectacularly, the private roof deck affords panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan skyline, and the architecturally ornate Montauk Club, as well as a peak of Prospect Park. YOUR BUILDING 26 8th Avenue is a landmarked, self-managed five-unit cooperative located at the corner of 8th Avenue and Lincoln Place, one block from Prospect Park. The co-op provides storage and bicycle storage, free of charge. This intimate community takes great pride in the full-time owner-occupied historic building the shareholders call home. Pets are welcome, one dog per apartment, with Board approval. YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD Anchored by magnificent, 585-acre Prospect Park, the Park Slope Historic District is listed on the National Register Of Historic Places and is among the most picturesque enclaves in New York City. Residents value its walkability, fine and casual dining, farmer's market, and exceptional public amenities which attract visitors from all over the city. The neighborhood is also home to the cherished Park Slope Food Co-op, whose contributing members enjoy local fresh and organic goods at attractive prices.
