Property Description for 312 16th Street

Welcome to 312 16th Street, located in prime South Park Slope, Brooklyn. This charming townhome, on a lovely tree-lined street, boasts an impressive mix of original details and modern updates. Built in 1901, this home exudes a fairy tale ambiance with a Dwell Magazine flair.

As you step inside, the first thing you'll notice is the versatile layout of the home. Currently configured as a two-family home with an owner's upper duplex and a garden apartment rental, one could choose to retain the current layout, or it can easily be reconfigured into a seamless one-family home. The entrance to the upper duplex is on the parlor floor, which welcomes you with a lovely, tiled vestibule and entryway, the perfect landing spot for your shoes and coats. From here, enter the open living room bathed in northern light, where you can admire one of the two original carved-stone fireplaces in the duplex. The sliding pocket doors when closed divide and define the space into a front and back of the house. Tuck them away and the entire floor opens up, offering a seamless flow from one room to the next.

The center room of the parlor floor is currently a separate dining area, but would also make an excellent work-from-home or den space. At the back of the house is the large, south-facing kitchen, which is the heart of the home. The open shelving and original wide plank pine floors create a modern, serene simplicity coupled with an updated, country "vibe." A glass-paned door leads you down to the landscaped and sunny south garden, a peaceful and magical respite from the city. The garden is filled with wonderful, mature perennial plantings that bloom throughout the spring and summer, including a magnificent cherry tree, forsythia, peonies, hydrangea, bluebells, and so much more. Adjacent to the garden is a bricked patio area that is perfect for entertaining al fresco or having your morning coffee.

As you ascend to the top floor of the home, a skylight at the top of the stairs bathes the floor in natural sunlight throughout the day. This floor currently has two oversized bedrooms and a full bathroom. Use as is or add in another bedroom or home office on this floor. The primary bedroom is situated in the rear and can easily accommodate a king-sized bed. It also has a large, custom-built, walk-in closet and its' window perfectly frames the beautiful cherry blossoms on the tree below. The front-facing bedroom is enormous and bright, with three windows that look out at the treetops, offering beautiful morning light. The large, windowed, full bathroom on this level has cheerful, penny-round and subway tiling and a small skylight.

The garden apartment is currently laid out as a full-floor studio with a decorative, original wood-burning stove and an original iron cooking hearth. The space is large enough for a sectional couch, a separate work-from-home and sleeping area, and a kitchen area that opens out to the patio and back garden. The mechanicals are in the basement below, along with a laundry area and plenty of storage.

This home is perfectly located in south Park Slope, just three blocks from stunning Prospect Park and a stone's throw to all the amenities of 7th Avenue and Prospect Park West. Enjoy a variety of neighborhood favorite restaurants such as Fonda, Winner, Runner-Up, The Double Windsor, Provini, Ottava, Pasta Louise, Krupa Caf, and more. Minutes to both the F/G subway at 15th Street/Prospect Park and the R subway stop at Prospect Avenue, and the beloved YMCA at the Prospect Park Armory is just around the corner. The home is currently zoned for PS10 and in District 15 school zone, with a plethora of nearby Pre-K options too. Run, don't walk to see this beautiful home - this "Sweet 16" is sure to be snapped up in a red-hot minute!

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).
