Property Description

The charm and elegance of Park Slope living is embodied in this finely-updated 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom gem in a handsome limestone coop. Set on a lovely tree-lined block, moments from Prospect Park, this prewar beauty enjoys light pouring all day, thanks to windows in every room and triple exposures.

An airy entry foyer welcomes you in, introducing the home's stunning features and gracious layout. Enhancing the ambience are rich parquet and strip hardwood floors, magnificent original built-in woodwork, a decorative period fireplace, and striking wood window trim throughout.

Relax and entertain in the generously-sized living room brightened by oversized windows, affording plenty of space for various seating arrangements. Down the closet-lined hall is the large inviting formal dining room for hosting dinner parties, and a fully-renovated kitchen appointed with Brookhaven semi-custom cabinetry and floating shelves, quartzite and walnut butcher block countertops, and a backsplash of handmade tiles by Mosaic Tile. The chef will also appreciate the GE Profile counter-depth French door refrigerator, gas range and over-the-range microwave with convection, and a fully-integrated Bosch dishwasher.

The primary bedroom is spacious and serene. Two additional bedrooms provide a perfect place to unwind as well, one with an en-suite half bath. The main bathroom, also updated, features marble walls and flooring. Plus there's a convenient in-unit washer-dryer for laundry ease.

Built in 1904, 253-259 Garfield Place is an intimate 17-unit cooperative. Residents have access to a shared roof deck showcasing city views, private storage and a bike room. The excellent location is moments from Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park, the Zoo, Brooklyn Museum, Botanic Garden, shops and restaurants along 7th Avenue, and the 2/3, B/Q, F/G trains. Pets allowed with board approval. Currently zoned for PS 321.

Three Beds in Park Slope


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).
