Introducing Residence 3C, a 2,046-square foot, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home with Southeast and Southwest exposures located on the corner of Prospect Park West and President Street. Upon entry, high ceilings and original details have been preserved to capture the spirit of 1920s architecture and pre-war minimalism. The entry gallery features a custom Frank Stella-inspired pattern using the hand-laid reclaimed heart pinewood flooring that is featured throughout the home.
Just off the entry gallery, find the 1920's inspired powder room with wainscoting, custom lighting by Workstead, a beveled edged mirror, and a custom washstand with Calacatta Nero marble top, chrome legs and Waterworks fixtures in chrome.
Exquisite features take center-stage in the kitchen with honed Estremoz marble countertops and backsplash, and a fully integrated appliance package by Wolf and Sub-Zero. A statement Calacatta Vagli marble island with a cast iron white undermount sink serves as a base for the Brancusi-like Dornbracht chrome faucet. The backdrop of custom-made, paneled cabinetry by Workstead, reflects the deco coving and generous baseboards that extend out toward the dramatic windows.
The kitchen and great room are separated by an open partition with curved arch details. Through the arch, towards the treetop views of Prospect Park, the great room is filled with pre-war inspired features including custom-designed trim, and wall moldings.
Across the entries to the two secondary bedrooms, the expansive secondary bathroom is finished with a Calacatta Nero marble top vanity, Waterworks fixtures in chrome, honed gray limestone mosaic floors, and a tub surrounded by white ceramic tile walls.
The master bedroom is kept serene with custom oversized windows and wall moldings. Past the two storage spaces including a large walk-in closet, the graciously proportioned master bathroom features natural Novelda Cream limestone slab walls and flooring, a freestanding bathtub, and classic Waterworks fixtures in chrome. The Bianco Dolomite marble-clad shower is entered through a pyramid-glass and powder-coated steel door, while a custom vanity Calacatta Nero carved marble countertops, Duravit sinks and integrated medicine cabinets with gently curving corners create an elegant effect.
Built at the height of the 1920s, One Prospect Park West marries Classic Revival architecture with crafted luxury. The interior scheme has been thoughtfully realized by acclaimed designers, Workstead. The Hudson Valley- and Brooklyn-based studio has taken a considerate approach that carries into the amenity collection. Enter One Prospect Park West through the fully attended Lobby. The Lobby leads to the Library and Children's Playroom where environments sequent and gradate into multipurpose spaces. Ride the elevator skywards and discover the Roof Terrace. ODA New York has created inspiring spaces for community and conversation with an apple orchard, lounge terrace, and sun deck, while the well-appointed outdoor kitchen makes it easy to take in long summer nights with skyline views of Manhattan and beyond. The Fitness Studio is set up for cardio, conditioning, and personal training. For those who aren't tempted by the daily gym call, the Basketball Court might whisper a little louder. Yoga and calisthenics are catered for in the Movement Studio, which is a short stretch from the steam room and sauna. Bicycle storage and a secured package room are available for use. Private storage is also available at an additional cost.
Placed at the corner of Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park, One Prospect Park West is located at the gateway to Park Slope. Just outside of the Lobby doors, find the entrance to Prospect Park, where you can escape from the demands of the city and breathe easier in green surroundings that call back to something simpler.
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).
