This colorful co-op at 487 6th Avenue in Park Slope, three blocks from Prospect Park, is bursting with vintage and modern charm on its two custom-designed levels. The duplex, currently used as two bedrooms, is asking for $ 1,050,000, and its uniqueness goes beyond the decor. Some interesting features in 1,100 square feet of interior space include a custom office space with a built-in library nook with antique salvaged doors and windows and an original mural hand-painted by a famous picture book maker ; at the rear, a unique tree house overlooks a landscaped garden.
The first garden level is framed by 11 foot ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick.
The open plan space is divided into living, dining and kitchen areas, each uniquely designed using modern materials and subtle but eye-catching colors and materials. An office / library is tucked away in a corner above the stairs.
Two exhibits fill the king-size master bedroom with southern light. This charming room opens onto a whimsical Brooklyn garden. The master bathroom has two sinks, distinctive reclaimed bathroom doors and a tub.
The lower level offers a family game room and dormitories large enough for bunk beds under a beamed ceiling. Here too, there is a renovated bathroom. Considering the layout, there are many configurations you can choose from, from the current two bedroom plan to using the lower level as a home office and guest space to creating a third bedroom. The building offers private storage, a bicycle storage room and a laundry room in the common basement.
