My Notes

An impeccable and unique 1899 Park Slope limestone on a most coveted block is now available. This single family, 5 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom end unit townhouse on exquisite Polhemus Place has an abundance of period details which include ornate stained glass, handcrafted plaster ceilings and original sliding pocket doors. The parlor floor boasts carved mantles, curved mirrors, an alabaster chandelier and hardwoods incorporating both cherry and mahogany. There are two original staircases, including a more formal one located in the center of the home, so your guests are greeted in the living area by stained glass windows and one of the two working gas fireplaces. The second staircase is located at the back of the home in the eat-in kitchen which provides access to the beautiful landscaped garden from the English basement. Lovingly maintained and meticulously preserved by one owner for over 4 decades, this perfect example of an Edward Betts designed home is ready for you to make it your own.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Park Slope home values will increase 6.3% next year, compared to a 3.7% rise for New York as a whole. Among Park Slope homes, this home is valued 250.8% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 11.2% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Park Slope, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 151.4% higher than in New York, and 40.4% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Park Slope home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York.
