Property Description

Welcome to 108 8th Avenue, a stunning mansion located in picturesque Park Slope. The scale and detail of this French Renaissance and Beaux Arts style home transports you to the opulent living of a bygone era. Martin Scorsese's "The Age of Innocence," HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and Steven Soderbergh's "The Knick" all were filmed in this home due to its grandeur, which includes filigreed mahogany woodwork, intricately carved newel posts, original inlaid parquet floors, a lavish 15' coffered dining room ceiling, six delicately carved fireplace mantels, and an abundance of stained-glass windows designed by world renowned artists.

This five-story limestone townhouse boasts 8,000 square feet, with 5 bedrooms & 5 1/2 baths, and includes a backyard, a Juliette balcony, two outdoor terraces, and a rooftop deck. The house measures 20'x83', with a grand center staircase that allows most rooms to span the entire width of the home.

Upon entering, a floor-to-ceiling glass-and-wrought-iron entry wall provides a view of the home's splendor, showcasing an ornate mirrored mantel with a gas-burning fireplace across from the six-foot wide center staircase. Continue into the heart of the home to find a music room/performance space with ideal acoustics, a library room that boasts a classic ladder, a dining room with original tapestries, a duplex kitchen that features custom stained-glass windows from the studios of Frank Lloyd Wright, a Juliet balcony for sipping wine while cooking and a lower-level multi-windowed breakfast room that opens out onto a terrace.

The primary bedroom has an en suite bath that includes a shower for two with multiple nozzles, a steam shower, a bidet, and a cast iron soaking tub sized for two that looks out onto the Manhattan skyline. Off this bedroom is a spectacular pass-through equipped with a marble sink, built-in cedar drawers & closets, large mirrors, and a spacious dressing area.

On the top floor there is a large bedroom with an en suite bath, a vented laundry room, a second full bathroom, and a large home office (that can double as a bedroom), which opens out onto a terrace with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline.

Ascend one more flight and you'll find a spacious roof deck with panoramic city views.

This timeless townhouse possesses details rarely seen in a private home today. The current owner renovated and modernized the electrical, plumbing, kitchen and bathrooms (which have cast-iron bathtubs and are finished with gorgeous marble and granite stone), installed multi-zoned air conditioning and an acoustic stereo sound system. Additional features include a fully functioning mechanical dumbwaiter that spans four floors and a private entrance to a guest suite on the garden level, with its own sauna and outdoor space.

A sub-basement, which spans (without arches) the entire length and width of the house, boasts 8' high ceilings and can be converted to a gym or media room. Currently, a wine cellar sits in the rear. The house is a legal two-family; currently being used as a one-family.

108 8th Avenue in Park Slope is just minutes from some of Brooklyn's most desired neighborhood attractions such as Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Barclays Center and the weekly Farmers' Market along with a wide array of restaurants and highly ranked public and private schools. It is conveniently located within a short walk from the Grand Army Plaza subway station (2, 3 and 4 train lines) and about 20 minutes from Wall Street/Manhattan by car or train.

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).
