Property Description for 421 17th Street

A charming single family house close to Prospect Park. It features a large kitchen with sun room, two bedrooms, a full bath and beautiful backyard complete with a shed perfect for an artist! 2 bed/1 bath.This quaint and quiet South Slope home will make you forget you’re in New York City. The 2-bedroom, 2-story townhouse sits just a couple of blocks from Prospect Park, and offers all the comforts of a cozy cottage hideaway. Both bedrooms are upstairs, and the master bedroom opens onto a covered private terrace, overlooking a landscaped garden below. Separating the bedrooms is a sizable bathroom featuring a deep soaking tub, a glass enclosed shower, and Waterworks appliances. Additionally, two large skylights flood the top floor with light. The garden-level floor has a comfortable living room with exposed brick, a beamed ceiling, and a wood-burning fireplace. It flows into a separate kitchen with ample counter space, and a sun room breakfast nook that leads out to the landscaped garden. This is a peaceful place to read, relax, and have your morning coffee. Out back there’s also a private, heated outbuilding that can be used as an artist’s studio, an office, a club house, or for storage. The dry basement downstairs also offers plenty of storage space, as well as a laundry room. This beautiful property is situated in a perfect location—on a quiet cross street, but at the nexus of South Slope and Windsor Terrace, two of Brooklyn’s hottest neighborhoods when it comes to dining and shopping. You’re within short walking distance of great restaurants like Talde, Fonda, and Thistle Hill, bars and biergartens like Greenwood Park, Sea Witch, and the newly revamped Grand Prospect Hall, not to mention all the shops and boutiques of 7th Avenue. The F/G trains at 15 St-Prospect Park are around the corner, and the R is only a couple of blocks west into South Slope. Come home to your very own country cottage in the city!

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).
