282 Park Place, Brooklyn, NY


Simply perfection, this impeccably renovated historic townhouse features tasteful modern finishes, endless sunlight, a rambling and glorious garden, and a separate garden floor, over-sized one-bedroom apartment, in sought-after Prospect Heights. This is one of those houses that makes you stop to marvel.
Meticulously designed and renovated, this stylish home takes full advantage of its expansive 20-foot-wide, extra-deep lot with a huge extension on the parlor and garden levels. Throughout the residence, coveted original architectural details are beautifully combined with high end contemporary finishes and conveniences. You will find surprises that make you smile, around every corner.

On the parlor floor, grand pocket doors open to the magnificent great room where stained glass bay windows and a handsome pier mirror accentuate the warm sunlight. Overhead soaring ceilings and original millwork join modern designer light fixtures. Inlaid floors usher you to the well-equipped butler's pantry with wine fridge, perfect for parties and everyday living, and opposite a cleverly concealed office area that easily tucks away. This space opens to the dramatic library lounge, featuring ornate built-in cabinetry and a delightful powder room. The spectacular eat-in chef's kitchen is the stuff New York dreams are made of and occupies the rear of this level of the parlor floor. Tin ceilings with a huge skylight, bay window and new MORSO cast iron wood-burning stove add warmth in every way. Rows of custom cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling subway tile surround top-of-the-line stainless steel and paneled appliances, including a Subzero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and Thermador six-burner gas range with a Viking hood.

Outside, the extra-deep, south-facing backyard is an unrivaled outdoor wonderland filled with lush landscaping, multiple areas for lounging and dining, with bluestone paving and gravel portions, and a deck with the perfect modern playhouse. This yard has been lovingly tended and maintained over the years, and is fully irrigated, includes hydrangeas and peonies that will come back to visit every year, several blossoming cherry trees and a glorious magnolia that stays green year-round.

Back inside, the stately staircase and carved wainscoting invite you to the second floor, where the gorgeous owner's suite delivers a serene bedroom, walk-in closet with a sink and marble vanity, and a private sitting room with a fireplace spanning the wide expanse of the house. A windowed bathroom includes a soaking tub/shower and a pedestal sink. On the skylit top floor, two huge bedrooms feature inlaid floors, built-in shutters and large closets. A third room on this floor is a perfect art studio, nursery or office. The oversized bathroom is finished in gleaming white tile, a sweet trough sink with double fittings and a walk-in shower, as well as radiant heated floors. A laundry room with a full-sized front-loading washer and dryer and ample cabinetry adds convenience.

The beautifully updated one-bedroom, one-bathroom garden apartment features expansive living spaces with hardwood floors, millwork, tin ceilings and split A/C. There is a separate den/home office, a huge eat-in kitchen with original built-in glass fronted cabinetry to one side, and upscale finishes and a large bedroom that opens to the fairytale garden.

This special home's impeccable and thorough renovations include two new water heaters, a new sewer line, updated electrical, refinished roofs, all new windows and central air. A fully refinished dry cellar provides copious storage and houses the building mechanicals.
