Property Description for 452 8th Street

On a beautiful Park Slope block, one of the prettiest and friendliest in the neighborhood, sits this classic brownstone. Built at the turn of the century it retains its traditional feel while seamlessly incorporating all the improvements modern living requires.

The garden level kitchen is bright and spacious with glass doors that lead out to a deep and south-facing garden. Its recent renovation features sleek white cabinetry, Caesar stone countertops, a double oven, a SubZero refrigerator and a built in range. The kitchen is thoughtfully designed and encompasses a table and chairs overlooking the garden in addition to a large stone island for the chef.

With a beautiful backyard at your doorstep, enjoying the outdoors is luxurious and easy. The rear part of the yard has a grassy surface big enough for a game of catch or a picnic. The front part, right off the kitchen, has blue stone pavers and is ideal for grilling, dining under the stars or lounging in the sun.

On the other side of the kitchen is an elegant dining room with original built-ins - a perfect place to set up a bar or store your china. It can seat up to 12 and is a versatile space easily used for both your casual weekday meals or for a more sophisticated dinner party. There is also a powder room on this floor.

The parlor level is a perfect meld of old and new. The architectural details, such as the soaring ceilings, marble fire places, moldings and floor to ceiling windows are reminiscent of an older era while the flow and layout reflect a more contemporary lifestyle and use of space. The formal front parlor has many original details and connects through pocket doors to the rear. The back parlor is used as a more casual gathering place with built in bookshelves and cabinets.

The bedrooms are upstairs with a spacious master on the 3rd floor overlooking 8th Street. It has a pass through, walk in closet that connects to another bedroom, and laundry. This layout allows the 3rd floor to be used as either a master suite encompassing a sitting room, private walk in closet and bath or as two separate bedrooms: a master and a guest room. The fourth floor has 2 additional large bedrooms, each with its own walk in closet. There is another full bath on this floor. Both bathrooms have radiant floor heat.

The house has been upgraded to include: 3 zone central air conditioning, all new windows, new ceilings, renovated kitchen, renovated bathrooms with radiant heat, updated mechanical and backyard landscaping.

Centrally located in prime Park Slope. Prospect Park is a short walk away and there are dozens of outstanding restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques in the immediate surrounding area. Zoned for PS 39.

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).
