Dubbed “The creative capital” by New York Magazine, Park Slope honors its name with integrity and artistic pride. Dotted with historic brownstones, top-rated restaurants and cultural landmarks, it’s easy to see why this is one of New York’s most desirable neighbourhoods. A stroll through the Western Slope of Prospect Park leads to a quaint, tree-lined street where your charming townhouse awaits. This home’s vintage furnishings, earthy tones and artistic relics embody the spirit of Park Slope and allows its refined simplicity to shine through.
Artists and Intellectuals
Your hosts are a married couple, both actors, who expand their talents into writing and directing. Avid gardeners and theatre-lovers, their appreciation of fine culture shines through in their choice of warm, earthy colours, simple décor and eclectic art.
Garden of Eden
Ascend the red-carpet-clad flight of steps into a home where space and sunlight abound. Large windows in the living room illuminate vintage furniture and an impressive collection of antique flip books and vinyl records. A dark wooden piano sits pensively, waiting for a pair of nimble fingers to make it come alive. In the kitchen, cappuccino-drinking intellectuals will find an espresso machine set in country-chic décor.
Ready to serve your masterful culinary creations? The dining room, with its outdoor atrium vibe, forms a wonderful scene with which to enjoy a meal. Steamer trunks and wood-paneled antiques pair with potted greenery to transport guests into a garden-like setting. Retreat to the powder room, where a window looks out onto a neighbour’s English-style garden. Make your way into the spacious bedrooms, where comfort and refinement collide with pieces from the gilded age and walls are draped with antiques and clever works of art.
Both the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden call this area their home. The neighbourhood is also well served by various nearby subway lines, convenient for ventures into Manhattan and other city boroughs, though you might find it hard to leave this sunny slice of paradise.
