Property Description

AWE-INSPIRING FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, 483 13th Street is a special property in the Park Slope Historic District like no other currently on the market. This majestic three-story Park Block brownstone was developed by Alexander G. Calder and built in 1897 by his son, William M. Calder, and has been painstakingly renovated by its current owners with a conservator's level of attention to detail, making this a breathtaking architectural treasure.

A legal two-family home currently used as a wonderful single family, 483 13th Street begins with a distinguished barrel front facade with an L shaped stoop, an inviting ground floor bluestone areaway that leads into a double vestibule entry and generous foyer, a large living room with wainscotting and a beautifully carved wood and tile fireplace mantel, a dining room perfectly laid out for entertaining, and a large kitchen that boasts custom cabinetry, a JennAir range, platinum Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, Verde Marina granite countertops and backsplash, a glowing tin ceiling, exposed brick, and a picture-perfect row of windows overlooking a magical landscaped garden with a lovely variety of mature plantings. There's also a half bath and plenty of closet space on this level as well.

Head up to the parlor level where you'll find ceilings nearly 11 feet high, a front and rear parlor with a pier mirror and another handsome fireplace mantel, a formal dining room with a beautiful fretwork arch, a guest bedroom with a perfect full hall bath, and other amazing features that include pristine pocket doors with etched glass, exquisite plaster work, splendid period light fixtures, and perfectly restored wood moldings with impeccable luster throughout. The top floor is also brimming with elegant and timeless details and consists of a sun-filled stair hall with a beautiful stained-glass skylight, a primary bedroom with an adjacent dressing room with a custom closet, two additional bedrooms, a full hall bath, and an upper-level kitchen to die for with custom solid cherry cabinetry, a Thermador range, rich Vermont green marble countertops and backsplash, all making for the easy option of a high income producing top floor rental. The basement level is unfinished with fantastic ceiling height, new mechanicals, and a laundry area.

The very definition of perfection, 483 13th Street is a once in a lifetime opportunity stationed a half block to Prospect Park, public school P.S. 107 is right on the corner, close to the Park Slope Armory YMCA, the Nitehawk Cinema, F & G subway lines, the weekly farmer's market at Bartel Pritchard Square, open-air events at the Prospect Park Bandshell, and every amenity imaginable all within walking distance.

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).
