Imagine the Brownstone of your dreams, bathed in light, rich in history and original detail, with an expansive floor plan, and a short distance from all the best that Park Slope has to offer. 18 8th Avenue is your opportunity to make that dream come true.
Now available for the first time in decades, 18 8th Avenue is configured as a three-family house, with a large triplex over two simplex units. Come and can let your imagination run wild. This spacious five-story Brownstone has room to spread out over three or four floors with excellent rental income or a guest apartment, or to create an incredible five-story single-family home. The ground floor apartment has a private entrance. The sky's the limit when it comes to the possibilities for this grand, historic home.
The parlor floor is open, with original plaster detail and fine millwork throughout, dramatically high ceilings, beautiful decorative fireplaces, and a full bathroom. The upper floors are complete with well-maintained parquet and hardwood floors, more original fireplaces, and streaming light. The front of the house overlooks Park Slope's historic Montauk Club, and the top floor has Manhattan views. The sprawling unfinished basement has good ceiling height for even more useful space. Structurally solid with fantastic bones, 18 8th Avenue is the perfect property for those looking to create their own jaw-dropping Brownstone masterpiece.
The location is unbeatable with the 2/3/B/Q subway lines to Manhattan right around the corner. Prospect Park, the Saturday Greenmarket at Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and Brooklyn Museum are your close neighbors, as is wonderful Flatbush and 7th Avenues' shopping and restaurants.
Bring your ideas and an architect. This house is a must see. You will soon be home.
