Welcome to 589 11th St, a beautifully preserved and restored Romanesque Revival style Brownstone, located on one of Park Slope’s most desirable blocks. Built in 1893, this beautiful landmark home has many original details that have been meticulously restored by the current owners. Such details include: completely intact plaster moldings, ornate fireplaces, exquisite woodwork, hardwood floors, pocket doors, gorgeous tilework and wainscoting. The current configuration is a lower triplex (with a partially finished basement) and a two-bedroom rental above. The Parlor floor has 12ft ceilings. The front Parlor has an amazing extra-large arched window, which allows for tremendous natural light. Only two houses on the block have this unique expressive opening. The front and back Parlors have gorgeous woodwork details that have been completely refinished. These two very large rooms are currently being used as bedrooms. On this level there is also a large beautifully finished full bathroom with a gorgeous stained-glass double hung window installed by the owners. This bathroom has two pedestal sinks and a deep clawfoot soaking tub with a shower attachment.
The garden level has an entrance under the stoop. Upon entering you will encounter a living room and dining room. The warmth of the woodwork and gorgeous fireplace give a cozy and welcoming feeling. A recently renovated kitchen and powder room sit in the back of this level. There is also a mudroom that has been tastefully incorporated into the functional living space. The kitchen has a complete stainless-steel package, including a 4 burner Wolf Stove with a center grill. The counter tops are Serpentine schist Stone and the cabinets are Cherry wood with a hand rubbed clear paste glaze finish. The powder room has been renovated with warm, classic finishes. A beautiful established perennial garden, with blue stone patio space and custom brick walkways, awaits your horticultural creativity. All the front windows throughout the house are custom wooden landmark approved windows. The kitchen window above the sink is a custom designed triple window.
The two-bedroom apartment on the third floor has a private entrance at the stoop level. As you enter, you will notice the exquisitely detailed newel-posts and Mahogany handrail. The rental space has a newly renovated kitchen and bath, hardwood floors and plaster moldings. This kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances. The full bath has a clawfoot soaking tub, pedestal sink and wainscoting. The entire home has zoned central A/C and the front and back facades have been completely restored.
