49 Montgomery Place. This majestic house on Park Slope's most coveted block awaits you. Historically significant, it was built in 1892 in the Romanesque Revival style by William Gubbins as one of three brownstones that feature masonry bays with curved sides and arched doorways as well as beautifully ornamented bandcourses between the windows and grand L-shaped stoops. This stately four-story two-family home is used as a single-family house with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and has magnificent, perfectly preserved wood details, 7 stunning decorative fireplaces and soaring pier mirrors. Its beauty is resplendent in the triple-parlor and garden levels that feature an expansive and elegant parlor level with a front parlor spanning 34', an incredible billiards room and a back parlor with a skylight and double exposures. The garden level has an enormous formal dining room, a massive renovated windowed eat-in-kitchen, and a breakfast/tv room leading to the backyard. Both garden and parlor levels measure 20'x65'. As you enter the parlor floor, you'll see the beautifully-preserved details unfold before you. The foyer offers a stately pier mirror and bench together with original fretwork in the hallway to delight you as you enter either the first double parlor or ascend the stairs. The parlor floor has three expansive rooms - the front double parlor spans 34' with the first of seven detailed decorative fireplaces, a spectacular pier mirror, and a detailed wall frieze band with front bay windows, each crowned with original stained glass, facing Montgomery Place. The middle parlor also has a perfectly-preserved pier mirror with decorative fireplace as well as original mahogany floor-to-ceiling glass-doored bookcases. It is set up as a true billiards room. The back parlor has a pocket door for privacy, and is used as a large home office. It features a large stained glass skylight and has three windows with two exposures that fill this room with light. It has a full wet bar for entertaining as well as a custom built-in office set up, and a closet. A set of stairs from this floor lead downstairs for a quick trip to the kitchen or the lower tv room. The garden floor is another triple-threat: an extra-large formal dining room with front bay windows and decorative fireplace, and a center powder room and butler pantry area connecting to the massive eat-in-kitchen. The windowed kitchen has a huge center island with a second sink and miles of granite counters and cherrywood cabinetry as well as stainless steel appliances, including a 6-burner stove with fully-vented hood and an extra large Subzero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Plan your dinners while sitting at the built-in kitchen desk/office with bookshelves, file cabinets and pantry closets. The back room has three large windows with two exposures and is currently used as a breakfast/tv room. It looks out onto the north-facing garden. This can also be a perfect playroom. There are four sizable bedrooms on the top two floors, each with its own unique decorative fireplace mantle and detailed woodwork. The primary bedroom is grand in scale - it's the full 20' width of the house and has 4 windows (all with beautifully intact original shutters) and a large double-closet. There is a connecting walk-in closet between the front and back bedrooms along with built in-storage and a large sink with a granite counter. The full bath on this level has a pedestal sink, a full size medicine cabinet, a deep soaking bathtub, framed with cherrywood, a separate spa shower, marble floors and a gorgeous stained glass window. Ascend to the top floor to find two more bedrooms the front bedroom mirrors the primary in size and is flooded with light. The top floor full bathroom has pretty black and white tile flooring and subway tiles. Additionally, there is a spacious laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer and a sink. Details abound within: 11.5' parlor ceilings; pocket doors throughout the home; beautiful parquet floors with mahogany inlays; original shutters in the formal dining room, front parlor, primary bedroom and front top floor bedroom; and oak wainscotting. The basement has arches and 6'8' ceilings and is the full length of the home. It houses the mechanicals - which are in good condition. The electric and plumbing were completely replaced, central air conditioning was installed and the kitchen and baths were renovated by the current owner in 1999. The furnace was updated in 2010. 49 Montgomery Place is perfectly located on Park Slope's most special block - fashioned after a London 'place'. Montgomery Place is only one block long, beginning at Eighth Avenue and ending at Prospect Park West. It is currently zoned for P. S. 321, close to all transportation and all the amenities that life in Park Slope has to offer. This stunning house, graceful and generous in its proportions, offers a rare opportunity to live in an historic home on Montgomery Place steps from Prospect Park. All showings are by appointment.
