Contract Out. Looking for history and nostalgia? Then look no further. You'll find it here in this classic Prospect Heights brownstone built in 1874. Prospect Heights is a popular and trending Brooklyn neighborhood, it is also one of the Borough's oldest neighborhoods. This 2 family 4 story house was designed by architect B. F. Pine and is part of a row of four graciously appointed neo-Grec streetscapes that line the block. Original architecture including decorative cast iron railings and a galvanized cornice remain intact. Inside, a gracious and welcoming entry foyer opens to a grand parlor that boasts 11+ ft. ceilings, intricate wedding cake plaster and mirrored mantels. All woodwork on this floor has been stripped of many layers of paint and is ready for the new owners to complete and finish to their own taste. The sun drenched kitchen in the rear parlor is oh so charming! It spans the full width of the house. The space is fitted with stainless steel, marble mosaic backsplash and a carrera marble center island, the central gathering place for cooking as well as entertaining. As part of the spacious lower duplex there are two bedrooms, and a den, and a large luxurious bathroom with wooden built-ins and storage. The layout on this floor provides access to a sizeable backyard with unlimited possibilities. The upper duplex is on the third and fourth floors. The current layout consists of two rental apartments and they each offer work-from-home/living space, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. All mechanicals are up to date--a new boiler and two new hot water heaters were recently installed. The house could use some updates, but you could easily move in and enjoy generous space and a steady flow of sunlight that adds warmth and glow to every single floor of this iconic gem. 188 Park Place is perfectly situated to enjoy all that Brooklyn, and New York City has to offer. With transit right at the corner, midtown is less than 30 minutes away. While at home you are surrounded by world class Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Prospect Park; and Brooklyn's hottest restaurants: Faun, Sofreh, Olmsted, Maison, Yaki and James to name a few. Take in a concert at Barclays Center, or enjoy dessert at Ample Hills Creamery. 188 is an exceptional home in the perfect location for whatever may interest you. Make it your own!
