What makes a house a home? More than any physical materials, walls and windows, fixtures and furniture, it's comfort, warmth, community, and most of all, love. No house feels more like home than 368 5th Street. Located on one of the best blocks in Center Slope and close to everything, this three-story brick house (a legal two family set up as one) with a finished basement and bonus studio is quintessentially Park Slope. Up the stoop and into the parlor floor, high ceilings and an open floor plan provide a grand sense of size and flow. The original hardwood floors are rich and warm, and a wood burning fireplace in the living room will keep you cozy on crisp autumn nights and snowy winter days. The light-filled eat-in kitchen is a perfect place for a peaceful break to listen to the sound of birds chirping or having friends over to share time. Through the kitchen, a spacious deck with a large retractable awning enables inside-outside living regardless of the weather. Upstairs are two large, airy, and bright bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a walk-in closet. The large bathroom, with double sinks and a separate shower and tub, is full of natural light from a skylight above. A large laundry and linen closet completes this bedroom floor. The garden floor features two flexible use bedrooms and a second full bathroom. The front bedroom currently has a large platform bed by the window and also comprises a well-lit small office/study and a walk-in wardrobe. At the rear of the house is a beautiful, wood paneled bedroom and a working sauna! The rear yard includes a perfect private sitting area and a lush green garden. An amazing escape from the hustle of city life. And if that's not enough, an adorable detached studio at the rear of the garden is perfect for a daily moment of rejuvenating meditation right in your own back yard. A fully finished basement completes this wonderful Park Slope townhome. Set up as a home office and media screening room, the space features a retractable projection screen installed at one end for amazing private movie nights. The mechanicals room offers plenty of extra storage space for your seasonal items and clothes, including cedar storage closets. Your new home is just a block and a half from Washington Park, home of the Old Stone House and the epicenter of the Center Slope community, with JJ Byrne Playground and a Sunday Farmer's Market that's one of the best in Brooklyn. Every convenience and amenity is nearby too, like Whole Foods, the Park Slope Food Co-op, the Prospect Park YMCA, and Prospect Park itself. You're surrounded by fantastic restaurants, cafes, and bars in every direction, and the F/G and R trains are nearby at both 7th and 4th Avenues.
