Just inches from Prospect Park and located on one of Park Slope's loveliest tree-lined blocks, this impressive 20-foot wide limestone stands three stories and boasts 4 plus bedrooms, 3 and a half baths, and a beautiful garden. Sunlight streams through all floors. You'll be wowed by the perfect balance of breathtaking historic bones, and chic contemporary vibe. Live the modern life in 19th-century grandeur. Enter your home on the parlor level through original wood doors into a classic vestibule where you will find open-plan living complete with 11ft high ceilings, inlaid hardwood floors, and beautiful front bay windows. The front and middle parlors are gracious and flexible living spaces that flow into a casual dining area and custom kitchen with walls of cabinetry and granite counter tops. Oversized doors open out to a magnificent Ipe deck with stairs that lead to a calm, quiet, south facing garden. Perfect for entertaining, grilling, and gardening. Flooded with light from the large skylight above, the period stairway leads to the top floor of the house and brings you to the sophisticated primary suite featuring an expansive bedroom, enormous dressing room, and a windowed en suite bathroom. Two additional bedrooms with lovely treetop views and light, a full bathroom, and ample closet space complete this level. Head downstairs to the garden level where the front room is the perfect gathering space. It features original wood paneling and a wall of built-ins to accommodate both TV and books. There is a bedroom in the back that opens onto the garden and can easily function as a home office, guest room, gym, or au pair lair. Between the two rooms is a walk-in closet large enough to hold everything from winter clothes to camping gear. This well planned level also has a full bathroom and laundry room. Even more storage is found in the large, functional cellar with updated mechanicals. Easily enjoy Prospect Park's acres of outdoor space, year-round greenmarkets, and festive events. Across the park, you'll find the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Museum, and Central Library. Transportation options abound with the F train, excellent bus service, and CitiBikes all nearby. Prepare to fall head over heels in love with 518 8th Street.
