I Want This House! Brooklyn Brownstone for $2.695M

This brownstone for sale is what all the Brooklyn hubbub is about: A mint Brownstone in North Park Slope on one of the desirable "named streets" (as opposed to those with numbers, like 7th Avenue or 3rd Street). This one, fresh on the offering block, is four stories and has its "museum-quality details" intact: wooden pocket doors and marble fireplaces, mahogany built-ins shelves and woodwork. It has more than 4,000 square feet, four bedrooms, a den, and two-and-a-half bathrooms. If for some strange reason that's not enough space, there's a finished studio apartment on the garden level, for your home-office, a mother-in-law apartment or to use as rental income.
While the bulk of the house seems to obey its 19th-century roots, the kitchen has a modern upgrade without being too sleek or out-of-place -- the wood-burning fireplace isn't bad, either.

But brownstone perfection doesn't come cheap. At $2.695 million, this house is several hundred thousand dollars more than similar homes for sale in Park Slope ... but those ones, a few hundred grand cheaper, are in the "numbered" streets, that have less cache, not to mention fewer train lines servicing them. Although, if your budget allows for this house, chances are you have enough for a private driver, too.
