Property Description for 548 2nd Street

In the heart of Park Slope, this 20’ wide home is ready for you. Designed by architect John E. Dwyer and built in 1891, 548 is one of a group of 5 townhouses in the Romanesque Revival style. With high stoops and a brownstone/brick facades, this is a lovely row of classic Park Slope homes.

Some of the salient features are:
  • Triplex over garden rental
  • Renovated open kitchen on the parlor floor
  • 5+ bedrooms
  • 3 full baths
  • South-facing landscaped garden
  • Large deck off the kitchen
The parlor floor has been completely updated. All woodwork was meticulously stripped, highlighting the beauty of 10 foot double doors, window shutters, and molding. Because this floor was re-configured from many small rooms into 2 large rooms, the floors are all new Brazilian cherry in a gorgeous herringbone pattern. The front parlor windows have stained glass transoms and the original glass panes. The mantle (salvaged from another project) highlights a wood-burning fireplace with a re-lined chimney.

The rear of the parlor floor is a spacious and open kitchen, installed 10 years ago. Custom cherry cabinets, hand-painted Portuguese tiles, a hand-forged copper hood and leaded glass cabinet fronts are the highlights. Appliances are:

  • electric wall oven and microwave
  • Bosch dishwasher
  • Bosch cooktop
  • GE Profile fridge (vented outside)
  • Sliding glass doors lead to the south-facing deck and garden. One of the loveliest gardens in Brooklyn awaits. Winding over the trellis and deck is a mature, flowering wisteria which explodes into lilac-colored blooms in May. In the garden is a white-flowering dogwood tree which is cloud-like in the spring and offers wonderful shade all summer. The garden is equally enjoyable from the deck or the garden itself.

    A delicate stained glass skylight above the staircase provides an abundance of light to the floor and stairwell below. Above the parlor floor is a master suite. The front room has become a library/media room with cherry bookcases built to the owners’ design, and three large windows. The master bedroom faces the garden. Innovative closet design has yielded a large walk-in closet while retaining the original shallower closets. A master bath was renovated 10 years ago with terra cotta tiles and a Kohler soaking tub.

    The top floor comprises two large and 1 small bedrooms, as well as another full bath and a large laundry room.

    Under the stoop is a ready-to-rent 1 bedroom apartment with a large, eat-in kitchen and parquet floors.

Park Slope | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Boasting beautiful tree-lined streets, brownstones and a range of activities for all age groups, Park Slope is consistently ranked as one of New York’s most desirable neighborhoods. Filled with lush parks and greenery, the neighborhood is also known for its rare combination of excellent public schools, award-winning restaurants, nightlife, small independently owned businesses and community gardens.

Situated at the western slope of Prospect Park, the neighborhood is divided into different sections: North Slope, Center Slope and South Slope. Depending on who you ask, of course, the definitions of where these borders end and begin may vary (is the divide between North and Center deemed Union Street, Garfield Place, 1st Street or 3rd Street? The one between Center and South 6th Street, 9th Street, 11th Street or 15th Street?). 

Regardless of what part of the Slope you find yourself on, there’s no shortage of architectural beauty. From row houses to brownstones to mansions, the idyllic setting of the neighborhood is further enhanced by its Romanesque and Renaissance Revival styles. Case in point of this is also two of the area’s most well-known churches, Park Slope United Methodist Church and Saint Augustine Roman Catholic Church. 

Revered for its family-friendly appeal, Park Slope is often regarded as one of the best places to raise a family in New York City. That said, it doesn’t mean that parents don’t know how to have a good time... a slew of bars constantly opening in the neighborhood ranging from the high-end cocktail saloon to the dive (well, by Park Slope standards, anyway).
