Prime park block location in Park Slope! This 20 ft wide expansive 6,000+ square foot brownstone, situated in the heart of Park Slope, beckons with its intricate wood and stain glass detailing, 6 fireplaces, and a wealth of original features. Nestled within the Historic District, a half block from Prospect Park, 916 President Street offers five full floors of living space, plus a full-height basement.

With a rough-faced brownstone facade adorned by bay windows on every floor and an inviting L-shaped stoop, the exterior sets the tone. Stepping inside, one is greeted by a grand staircase and an abundance of original built-in cabinetry, adorned with beautifully carved wood detailing, and complemented by multiple fireplaces throughout. The Parlor floor boasts 12-foot high ceilings, stained glass windows, and oversized pocket doors. The windowed formal dining room showcases exquisite inlaid wood floor detailing, while both the dining and living rooms feature imposing fireplaces.

The home is currently configured as a two-family residence, although the possibilities are vast. The garden level is configured as a tenant's apartment with a private entrance. The Parlor level and the three additional floors can be artfully transformed into a spacious home, complete with an office and five generously sized bedrooms. This impressive brownstone graces a mid-block location on a 20x100-foot lot. As initially constructed, the house spans 20x50 feet with a 19-foot extension on the Garden and Parlor levels.

In the 1960s, distinguished artist George Kendall Shaw (March 30, 1924 - October 18, 2019) acquired the home. Shaw, an American painter rooted in New Orleans, enjoyed a versatile career that encompassed various art styles, spanning from abstract expressionism and pop art to minimalism, pattern and design, and color field.

This prime Park Slope gem is ideally situated on President Street, nestled between Prospect Park West and Eighth Avenue. This amazing location could not be any more convenient to the finest Brooklyn institutions; Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Central Library, the Brooklyn Museum, and Brooklyn Botanic Garden are all at your doorstep. Enjoy the Saturday farmer's market at Grand Army Plaza, Union Market on Flatbush Ave, and local restaurants of Park Slope. Currently zoned for PS 321 as well as convenient subway access to Manhattan and the rest of Brooklyn is a breeze with the 2/3/Q/B trains moments away.
