Property Description

56 Prospect Place is a classic North Slope townhome, each of its four stories meticulously restored. The modernization of this turn-of-the-century house maintains the integrity of its provenance, while offering modern amenities including central air & heat and upgraded electrical and plumbing systems, along with a new furnace, roof, and windows. Zoned as a multi-family, 56 Prospect Place is currently being used as an enviably comfortable single-family home.

From the outset, you'll note the elegantly curved brownstone stoop, striking arched entry and windows that highlight the home's collection of rare Belcher Mosaic Glass. Belcher's renowned designs of mosaic stained glass, brilliant in color and pattern, are featured throughout the property. The stately brick fa ade is enhanced by a dramatic arched bay window on the third floor and peaked roofline. The parlor floor offers 12' tall ceilings and a tremendous kitchen in the rear with custom mahogany cabinetry and countertops crafted from genuine limestone, a Sub-Zero fridge, Wolf range, and Bosch dishwasher. The front parlor, currently used as a dining room, features a gorgeous decorative fireplace and pristine plaster moldings. In between is a gracious foyer with the showstopper center staircase, intricately carved, as well as contemporary stairs that lead directly to the lower level.

This garden level is a cozy retreat for work and/or play, and accommodates guests easily. The open space has multiple uses: media room with WBFP, workout space, home office, writing or mediation studio, in-law suite Use your imagination! This floor includes a generous custom built-in work-from-home setup and storage area, a dual-exposure den/sitting room off the garden, a bedroom and full bath, plus access to the basement.

The third floor is home to an off-the-charts primary suite, featuring a large front bedroom, generous closet space, and an extraordinary spa bathroom. The bedroom features a wood-burning fireplace with original tile and mantel and a bank of arched windows with Belcher stained glass. The windowed bathroom is over 200 sq. ft. and features a long custom sink & vanity and an expansive step-in shower, both made of Pietra Cardoza stone, an exquisite free-standing soaking tub, separate W/C, Barbara Wilson fixtures, and a decorative fireplace.

The top floor is comprised of two bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and en suite bath, separated by a fabulous lounge/den/family room with exposed brick and custom shelving. There is also a laundry room with full-size washer/dryer. The grand staircase continues from this level up, where an oversized skylight floods the top floor in light and highlights another exceptional example of mosaic stained glass, while leading out to the contemporary roof deck. This sky terrace features integrated seating and planters and offers remarkable views of Brownstone Brooklyn, Downtown Manhattan, and the Empire State Building.

56 Prospect Place is situated on a leafy side street in the North Slope, close to 5th Avenue's restaurant row and easily accessible to the 2 / 3 and B / Q subway lines, Grand Army Plaza, Barclay's Center, and everything Brooklyn has to offer.

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).
