Welcome to 832 President Street, a true Park Slope treasure. At just over 4150 square feet, this sprawling and exceptional North Slope brownstone has unlimited potential. The four-story, 4-family townhouse located on the sunny south side of the street, is currently configured as an owner's lower 2 BR duplex with three rental units above; a floor thru 1BR simplex on the third floor, and two large studio apartments on the top floor, nestled among the treetops. Bring your vision and customize this magnificent house to create the home of your dreams.
Original to its' initial splendor when built in 1887, preserved details abound, including untouched mahogany wood throughout the home. A beautiful built-in pier mirror with bench, seven original decorative fireplaces with intricately carved mantlepieces and decorative original tiling, carved wooden friezes above grand sliding pocket doors with original brass fixtures, inlaid wooden wainscoting, and pocket window shutters. Inlaid oak and mahogany floors are in beautiful condition throughout the home, and original plaster details grace the upper walls of the formal dining room on the parlor floor.
The owner's duplex also provides you with a choice of outdoor spaces to enjoy. The lovely south facing garden with mature plantings and an adjacent patio area, is covered by mature grape vines overhead and provides a lovely shady oasis in the summertime. Or if you prefer a little more sun, have your morning coffee and entertain friends on the roof-deck terrace outside the kitchen door, overlooking the garden. This home has been meticulously cared for and maintained by the current owners for over 50 years and it is apparent at every turn.
Easily converted to an enormous one or two-family home, or keep the layout as-is and benefit from three high income rental units, the choices are many with such a versatile and special townhouse. Two blocks to bucolic Prospect Park, a few houses up from Seventh Avenue, and a short walk to many beloved cultural institutions nearby such as The Brooklyn Museum, The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Barclays Center, makes this location truly ideal. Couple that with proximity to all the amazing restaurants, shops and all the other great amenities that Park Slope is known for, and you may never want to leave the neighborhood again! But if you do, the B/Q subway at 7th Avenue, the 2/3 subway at Grand Army Plaza, and the R subway at Union Street are all just a few minutes away. Currently zoned for PS 321 in District 15 and a few blocks to The Berkeley Carroll School and Poly Prep.
