607 5th Street sits on a quiet tree-lined block at the edge of Prospect Park, and anchors a group of 14 beautiful Neo-Renaissance limestone townhouses built by architect Axel S. Hedman and developer Eli Bishop in 1907. It's the widest of the group, and the only one with side windows, a conical turret, and views of Prospect Park. Enchanting original details abound, including the original staircase, two fireplace mantles, stained glass windows, parquet flooring, a coffered dining room ceiling, and a wealth of meticulously crafted woodwork and plaster details throughout. Coming home to 607 5th Street, you'll ascend a boxed limestone stoop with raised areaway, and enter through two beautifully crafted doors. The parlor floor spans 84-feet deep, with an elegant procession of spaces perfect for entertaining and everyday life. The front parlor, gallery, dining room, and pantry flow beautifully to a windowed kitchen with two exposures that look out over your backyard and side-yard. Here you will find a sunny oasis from the bustle of Brooklyn where you can relax, entertain, and perhaps put your green thumb to good use. Upstairs there are four sunny bedrooms, two of which are massive, with bowed bays that feature built-in seating and views of Prospect Park. There's also an office or nursery and three dressing areas with their original marble sinks and cabinetry. On the top floor a windowed middle room currently configured with a kitchen could easily become a fifth bedroom. A large skylight sits atop the staircase, bringing sunlight down through the house all day long. Downstairs you'll find a windowed English basement which works great as an office, play area, or den, and currently features a half bath, laundry room, and stairs to the street and backyard. At 607 5th Street, Prospect Park is your second backyard, with the Litchfield Villa just a stone's throw away. Grand Army Plaza, the Farmer's Market, and the best of Park Slope's restaurants, shopping, and other amenities are all close by. Come see this rare townhouse jewel and make it the backdrop for your life in Brooklyn.
