Rare in its combination of spectacular location, sheer size, historic preservation, and masterful renovation, 568 1st St is a dream home. This magnificent 20.5-foot wide Renaissance Revival limestone off Prospect Park underwent a top-to-bottom designer renovation and restoration in 2021, expertly guided by Studio SFW. Nestled on Park Slope's most sought-after block, this five-story, single family townhouse spans 5,777 square feet of pure elegance.No detail was spared in this lovingly restored home. Exquisite selections were made for the lighting, paint, floor tiles, wall and window treatments, surfaces, hardware, and cabinetry. All doors were rehung, a new 200 amp electrical service was installed, a 4-zone air conditioning system was added, the roof was attended to, and all appliances were upgraded.
