Timeless style next to Prospect Park - the ultimate urban oasis. Impeccable Park Slope living awaits in this magnificently restored 19th century brownstone. Enjoy the fruits of a meticulous and painstaking gut renovation. Multiple outdoor spaces, a full-floor owner's suite and a private garage with a floor to ceiling glass rear wall, make this an incredibly rare jewel, beautifully crafted for modern luxury living in one of the city's most sought-after neighborhoods.

Brought to you by the partners of the revered Brooklyn Home Company, this five-story residence welcomes you with Dinesen 14-inch-wide heart oak flooring and towering ceilings trimmed with custom moldings, millwork and designer lighting. With windows on all four exposures, a townhouse rarity, the home is bathed with natural light and leafy outdoor views throughout. The parlor floor living room invites you to relax by the front bay window and gas fireplace, or step through French doors to enjoy the first of many terraces. Ahead, the formal dining room with a fireplace and collection of Natalie Page pendants is the perfect backdrop for entertaining or step out to the private bricked patio surrounded by lush landscaping, in the warmer months. Wrapped in windows, the kitchen features classically tailored custom cabinetry topped by honed statuary marble, two farm sinks, unlacquered brass hardware and Waterworks fixtures. Appliances include a La Canche Classique gas range with a venting Wolf hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer and wine refrigerator. A coat closet and elegant powder room complete the thoughtfully planned parlor level.

Ascend a completely rebuilt central staircase surrounded by windows to three bedrooms flanking a spacious sitting room. Overlooking quaint Fifth Street, a junior suite has bay window views, a walk-in closet and a private marble bathroom, while two more bedrooms share a second full bath. A Bosch washer-dryer is tucked away on this level as well. The central area serves as a comfortable open gathering place, a playroom or sitting area.

One floor up is the spectacular full-floor owner's retreat. It features a private terrace with an outdoor fireplace, situated just outside the oversized, south facing bedroom. A large walk-in closet and dressing room connects the bedrooms to the bathroom spa which includes a steam shower for two, a freestanding cast-iron soaking tub, twin pedestal sinks and a private water closet.

The home's crown jewel is a roof deck overlooking a striking turret and the neighboring treetops. Entertain easily thanks to the well-equipped summer kitchen with an Al Fresco gas barbecue grill.

The ground floor provides effortless arrivals and departures with a private garage. Then enter privately into the side courtyard through dramatic steel and glass doors, or directly into the mudroom filled with custom cabinetry and a window seat. A walk-in closet and a powder room flank the entrance to a library and family room. This large ground floor living space is lined with built-in cabinetry and features a fireplace, wet bar and French doors that open to a patio and the side and rear yard. A guest room with en suite bath sits at the rear of this floor surrounded by the outdoor courtyards. Below, the cellar level adds convenience and ease to this townhouse with a large laundry room, a home gym, a wine cellar with Sub-Zero wine refrigerators and multiple storage rooms.

Built in 1892, 608 5th Street anchors a harmonious row of 12 Romanesque Revival townhouses featuring dramatic rusticated limestone, brick and brownstone facades. Prospect Park becomes your playground with its miles of trails, acres of lush outdoor space and fantastic year-round events and greenmarkets right outside your front door. Amble two tree-lined blocks west to discover the excellent restaurants, shops and nightlife destinations the Park Slope Historic District is known for. Nearby F, G, 2/3 and R trains, excellent bus service and CitiBike stations provide excellent access to the rest of the city.
