Description

Rarely Available, Enchanting 30’ Wide Mansion with Parking! Perfectly situated on arguably the most exclusive street in New York and nestled between an impressive array of architecturally significant homes, is 17 Montgomery Place, a coveted 30’ wide Mansion in the heart of the Park Slope Historic District. Built by renowned architect C.P.H.Gilbert in 1887 as part of a single unified real estate venture, 17 Montgomery Place is one of 20 homes that were designed with the intention of creating a beautiful and harmonious streetscape and are now considered to be one of the period’s greatest urban ensembles. Comprising 8 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, the 4,738 square foot Beaux-Arts mansion is an unrivaled example of the grandeur and beautifully preserved detail of a bygone era. The rough-faced Brownstone and brick facade features a sweeping stair, windows of different shapes and sizes and a wide two-story bay with stone frames around glass transoms.

Inviting arched double doors with an intricate iron scroll grille welcome you into the gracious entry hall that is a showcase of magnificent original detail including the dramatic center staircase flanked by a huge fireplace with a built-in bench, pocket doors and parquet floors. Enchanting architectural elements like rounded corners, elaborate millwork and mouldings repeat throughout the house while lovely painted wainscoting incorporates a rich collage of forms and textures. Off of the Entry Hall is the gracious sun-filled Parlor with a bay of three windows overlooking the tree-lined street and another fireplace with a marble surround.

What was once the second Parlor is now a huge eat-in kitchen with abundant counter space and storage, beautiful, hand-painted Dutch tile backsplash and a glorious fireplace hearth. Sliding glass doors open to a deck with a curved wrought iron stair down to your garden oasis complete with a koi pond, the quintessential setting for alfresco dining and intimate garden parties. The elegant formal dining room is a work of art with high, elaborate wainscoting, another beautiful fireplace and breathtaking vintage 1960 hand-painted Gracie wallpaper.

There is a convenient powder room off of the dining room. On the second floor, the large, sun-drenched primary bedroom offers a luxuriously serene retreat embellished with a hand-carved fireplace, a bay of oversized windows with transoms above, and two closets, one of which is a huge walk-in. The ensuite palatial Primary bath is an American Arts and Crafts masterpiece completely adorned with Pewabic "Flowing Matte" green tile, a luxurious soaking tub and separate shower. Beyond the primary suite are two generously proportioned bedrooms with fireplaces and another full bath with beautiful wainscoting and soaking tub.

On the third floor are an additional four bedrooms, a full bath with a glass enclosed shower and a library room, offering versatility and abundant space for family, friends and/or remote office work. The sprawling layout continues down to the finished English basement that has a private entrance and features a cozy two-room apartment with a kitchen and full bath, the laundry room and mechanicals of the home. Included with the sale is a Parking Space at the 24/7 Garage Condo at Union Street & 7th Avenue. Built by C.P.H. Gilbert between 1887-1892, 17 Montgomery Place is perfectly situated on this one-block stretch less than a block from Prospect Park. Local landmarks and attractions abound: the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Gardens, Grand Army Plaza Farmers Market, the Brooklyn Public Library and the vibrant shopping and restaurants of 7th and 5th Avenues. Conveniently located near the 2, 3, F, R, B & Q train lines to Manhattan.
