A rare and wonderful opportunity! This unique loft-like house is sure to surprise you in every way. It boasts two beautiful, serene and sun-filled landscaped gardens, a working wood-burning fireplace, a 2-car garage and curb cut. With multiple skylights and a wall of windows, this bright and airy home filters incredible natural sunlight through the space at every turn. As you enter the house through the private courtyard garden, you’ll be delighted to find an amazing chef’s kitchen with abundant space for an 8-person dining table. With classic white cabinets, fantastic built-in storage, a wall of windows overlooking the front garden, poured concrete floors, a vintage Chambers stove, a big farm-house sink, a Bosch dishwasher and sub-zero refrigerator, this kitchen is a cook's dream. Throughout the house, you’ll find exposed beams, hardwood floors, unique industrial-style finishes and thoughtfully-incorporated storage, including built-in white oak bookshelves and cabinets surrounding the fireplace in the living room. Other comforts include both forced-air and radiant heat and central air-conditioning, as well as a washer and dryer. This home is situated on an extra-wide 36x100 ft lot with an additional 750 square foot side garden that has a fountain and raised vegetable beds. It offers 2280 square feet of interior living space with the ability to build an additional 6000+ square feet. The structure is certifiably sound to withstand building atop the existing kitchen's footprint. The master bedroom offers a large en suite bath and a huge cedar-lined custom walk-in closet. The second bedroom overlooks a beautifully landscaped side garden. One could also create a 3rd bedroom by incorporating part of the garage into the existing layout. This home is located within steps to transportation and South Park Slope's best restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and services. With every amenity at your fingertips, it is not to be missed!
