261 Garfield Place Unit 4, Brooklyn, NY 11215

This sun-drenched, mint-condition, 4-bedroom, 2 full bathroom home with a separate windowed home office is a true gem. Located on a quiet spot on Garfield Place between Fiske and 8th Ave. and occupying the entire top floor of a stately, barrel-fronted limestone and brick building built circa 1903 by Henry Pohlmann, this landmarked residence offers a perfect blend of classic elegance and modern comfort.

With nearly 1,700 square feet of living space and flooded with natural light through its four exposures, this apartment has a warm and inviting atmosphere throughout. The spacious, south-facing living room is ideal for both relaxation and entertaining, boasting plenty of room for your favorite furnishings and decor. Enjoy exceptional original pre-war detail in every part of this home, such as arched bay windows, crown and baseboard moldings, parquet floors with inlay, stained glass, towering 9’ 6” ceilings, a built-in hutch, and a decorative fireplace with wooden mantel.

The large, windowed kitchen with banquette seating has soapstone countertops, a new tile backsplash, freshly painted cabinetry reaching to the ceiling, open shelving, ample counter space, and stainless-steel appliances, including a French door fridge with freezer drawer and wine fridge. A vented, stacked washer/dryer is also in the kitchen.

The four well-appointed bedrooms plus home office with floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves and two west-facing windows, provide ample room and numerous separate spaces for household members and guests alike. Both bathrooms are finished with modern tiling and updated fixtures. The first is discreetly tucked into the home office and features a steam shower while the second is located directly off the hallway and has its own window, a new floor tile, dual sinks, and floor-to-ceiling custom built-in storage.

This intimate, self-managed, pet-friendly co-op is 100% owner-occupied and made up of 11 units between two buildings: one with an entrance on 8th Ave. and one with an entrance on Garfield Place. The Garfield Place building is only three units, and the co-op is amenable to adding a roof deck here. Ask about renderings and other preliminary steps already taken. No underlying mortgage, low maintenance, bike storage, a live-in super, and an additional basement closet storage measuring 80 sq. ft. included for no additional cost. Three flights up plus a short stoop. Stroller and scooter parking is available in the lobby.

Located in prime north Park Slope, 261 Garfield Pl. represents iconic Park Slope at its best with its eateries, rows of novelty stores, historic homes, and of course, Prospect Park, the Botanical Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum, Farmer’s Market, and Grand Army Plaza all just a few blocks away. Close to express subway lines and buses down Flatbush Ave.

Please note the rear bedroom/den image has been virtually altered with bedroom furniture.
