Town House

Built in 1910

Rare in its combination of spectacular location, sheer size, historic preservation, and masterful renovation, 568 1st St is a dream home. This magnificent 20.5-foot wide Renaissance Revival limestone underwent a top-to-bottom designer renovation and restoration in 2021, expertly guided by Studio SFW. Nestled on Park Slope's most sought-after park block, this five-story, single family townhouse spans 5,777 square feet of pure elegance.

No detail was spared in this lovingly restored home. Exquisite selections were made for the lighting, paint, floor tiles, wall and window treatments, surfaces, hardware, and cabinetry. All doors were rehung, a new 200 amp electrical service was installed, a 4-zone air conditioning system was added, the roof was attended to, and all appliances were upgraded.

Step into the foyer, adorned with de Gournay wallpaper and zellige tiles, to an impressive entryway with an original pier mirror and dramatic curved staircase, engraved with seashells. The parlor level features four grand spaces, including a living room, a bar/music room, formal dining, and a dream kitchen. Located in the rear, full width extension unusual in Park Slope townhouses, this grand eat-in kitchen streams in south-facing light, hitting the wraparound blue cabinetry, oxblood Viking range, and striking Fior di Pesco marble backsplash. Subtle details, such as aged brass Waterworks hardware and a fireclay sink, in combination with generous, well-designed storage, make this a functional and beautiful retreat for any home chef. Ideal for formal and informal entertaining, the parlor level also features a beautifully outfitted powder room.

The quality of the renovation, ingenuity of the layout redesign, and boldness of the styling continue. Across the other four stunning floors you'll find...

* A jaw dropping primary floor: a front-facing, bay windowed bedroom with size for a living area
and king bed, a dream dressing room and a spectacular primary ensuite bath with Artistic Tile
glass mosaic floors, burl vanity, a soaking tub, a separate double shower, and a water closet
behind fluted frosted glass doors
* One full bathroom per floor
* A massive informal living room bedecked with built-ins
* Two offices, one with a
south-facing terrace (from which Prospect Park's fireworks displayed can be
enjoyed!)
* A skylit top level with three bedrooms and a skylit hangout space, ideal for a play room, media
room, or another office
* Reimagined English basement with a media/playroom, wellness space with a sauna, gorgeously
outfitted laundry room, full guest suite (with its own bathroom), and a mudroom with built-ins and
storage galore
* Mechanicals were upgraded and moved to an otherwise unused interior space
* Currently configured as 5 bedrooms plus two home offices and a second living room, this home
can have as many as 8 bedrooms without doing one bit of renovation, with two bonus spaces still
available for home offices!

568 1st Street truly stands out as one of Park Slope's most spectacularly designed homes, boasting an ideal location and an impressive footprint. All open houses and showings will be by appointment only.
