217 Berkeley Place, Brooklyn, NY, New York 11217. A HOUSE TO LOVE 217 Berkeley Place is a 20 foot wide single family home built in 1875 in the North Park Slope Historic District. It has six bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths. The house has been lovingly renovated and meticulously restored by the best artisans, with careful attention to every detail. On the garden floor a comfortable family room flows into a writing niche, which then opens onto a glorious light filled kitchen with glass walls and a sun room overlooking the garden and creating a peaceful inside/outside feel. The kitchen, truly the hearth of the home, has a beautiful wood burning fireplace, radiant heated Ann Sachs tiled floors, Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and a restaurant power kitchen vent. The parlor floor is filled with museum quality original details every one of which has been restored to perfection. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room with an original mantel and tiles. A spectacular stained glass window sitting alcove has original tapestries reproducing two French Rococo paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. On the second floor the light filled master bedroom has a true spa bathroom with custom designed Boffi sinks, fixtures and countertops. The Claudio Silvestrin bathtub is a work of art in which to luxuriate. The top floor roof was raised to incorporate a huge operable skylight. There is a spectacular artist's studio (which can also be a large bedroom) with a very private decked terrace. You could not ask for a better location on a gorgeous tree lined street a breath away from Prospect Park, the Park Slope food coop and the subway around the corner.
