This exquisite 20' x 50' brownstone is located on one of Park Slope's prime blocks built in 1884 and just moments from Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza with its exciting farmer's market, Barclays, BAM and an array of treasured local shops and restaurants. Part of the Park Slope Historic District, 200 Berkeley is conveniently located blocks away from several subways including the Q & B express to Manhattan as well as the 2 & 3 trains. 200 Berkeley Place is one of ten Neo Grec brownstones designed and built by Edward B. Sturges and John J. Magilligan and is rife with pristinely restored original details that harmonize with its contemporary amenities. It is currently configured as a 2 family, 4 story home with a fully renovated, high-income garden rental and a grand owner's triplex comprised of the parlor floor and two additional floors above. The building under went a massive renovation with all electric and plumbing completely new. The central air system has four distinct zones and provides cooling, as well as heating, with forced hot air over hydronic coils. The woodwork on all four floors has been entirely stripped and refinished, to bring back the stunning luster of the original wood. Music is piped throughout the entire top three floors and makes entertaining a must. Upon entering the expansive double parlor with its 12 foot ceilings, one notices the large two-sided bay windows which wash the room in a soft light. The woodwork on this floor (original Brazilian mahogany) includes rare, intricately hand carved, floral motifs, original Eastlake brass hardware, with solid mahogany pocket doors enhanced by beautiful burl inlays, a pier mirror, a beautifully restored stained-glass pocket door and rich, newly installed 3/4" oak hardwood floors. The meticulously restored plaster ceiling with its coved molding throughout the house simply add to the building's grandeur. The entire parlor floor is a drama of beauty and light with soaring ceilings and oversized windows. The heart of the home is the large, sunbathed, ultimate, Park Slope eat-in kitchen. Starting with the best appliances, from a Miele dishwasher, Fisher Paykel half dishwasher and a 30" 4 burner vented Wolf range to a DCS under-counter electric oven, triple-beveled granite counters, a handcrafted specially designed island and high-end custom cabinets framed by custom architectural soffits, no expense has been spared. From the kitchen, through an oversized French door, we are led on to an 18' deck and stairs, descending to a magical, south facing, artfully designed garden with mature perennial plantings. Here you are greeted by cherry trees, bamboos, a magnificent ornamental Elm tree and plenty of space to entertain. The current owner uses the third floor as a luxurious master suite. Architecturally, this floor features two-tone cherry and oak wood details, the original brass hardware with 10' ceilings and original solid inlayed wood floors throughout. The peaceful, sunny sitting room with its decorative mantel compliments the light-drenched, overly generous master bedroom. Fabulous closet space, a windowed, spacious master bathroom, clad in Italian Morano marble, accentuated by a Melange marble border, replete with a large, deep jacuzzi tub and a hand-carved wooden vanity, complete this floor. As you walk up to the stairs to the 4th floor, just above the tree line, a large skylight allows light to cascade into the area. This floor offers two more king-sized bedrooms, drenched with incredible natural light and the feeling of absolute airiness due to the high ceilings and the abundance of windows, quarter sawn heart pine moldings, two decorative fireplaces, and an office. The office features added built-in bookcases and architectural moldings. An elegant four-fixture bath with the restored original claw foot bathtub, new mahogany wainscoting, crown and trims, a skylight and a luxurious glass wall shower with a lit floral area, rounds out the top level. The stained, new 3/4" natural beech wood floor compliments the sense of light and playfulness on this level. The garden apartment is a fully renovated one bedroom which will be delivered vacant. The entire floor has new, engineered, 3/4" oak floor. The living room has elegant mahogany wainscoting, as well as a decorative fireplace with ample closets throughout. The galley kitchen features granite countertops and abundant cabinets from where you walk into the spacious, sunny bedroom which faces the beautiful garden. The bathroom impresses with tumbled Ambra marble and an attractive accent border. This house has a wonderful flow in its current configuration but can easily be modified to include the garden rental for use as a single family - a true turn-key home. Additional features of this home include: - Transferable CEMA mortgage - Newly installed, custom made, hand carved, solid mahogany front door - New wooden, polarized Marvin and Anderson windows - Newly restored pristine brownstone facade - Entire roof recently coated with a reflective hi-tech silicone - 6 decorative fireplaces - Finished and dry basement with commercial strength washer & dryer
