Welcome to 131 Garfield Place - a well cared for two family brownstone with an extra deep lot on one of Center Park Slope's most sought after tree lined blocks! The home has been well cared for and has had many updates throughout the years including a full renovation of the top two floors from 2001 to 2003 including new electrical and plumbing throughout, new stairs, and kitchens and baths. In addition, the facade and stoop were redone around 2014, as were as was the roof, and the windows date from around 2010. At the same time the home has retained numerous original details as well, including the original front doors, and the original curved banister and newel post.

The home is currently configured as an owner's duplex over a garden rental. In the current set up the owners have created an open concept living area on the top floor to take advantage of the full width and depth of the home. Gracious sycamore views from the three front windows and sunny garden views from the back are sure to delight, as is the beautiful breeze passing through the space. This level also features a full bathroom and a well sized windowed kitchen with a full pantry and dishwasher. One floor below, on the parlor level, are a front and back bedroom with a large walk in closet between the two. The back bedroom features an open concept bathroom with a spa like whirlpool bath and vanity and an enclosed W/C. Enjoy as is, or easily reconfigure to create a fully enclosed bathroom should you prefer. On the first floor one finds the garden rental with it's own entrance under the stoop and an extension offering ample space for the kitchen and access to the garden beyond.

The back yard is a stunning oasis, filled with mature Rhododendrons, Hydrangeas, Hostas and Ivy. The lot is 114 deep, offering an additional 14 feet more than most yards in Brooklyn, and plenty of room for your next BBQ, or to try out your green thumb! The extra space also means you have more buildable sqft left (1688 to be exact) should you wish to build an rear extension on one or more floors, and/or an entire 4th floor. addition. The possibilities abound with this property - use as is, flip the owners duplex to create a parlor floor living/dining kitchen with a deck leading to the garden below and three beds & two baths on the top floor (see the attached alternate floorplan), use the entire home as a grand single family, or add on to maximize your return on investment!
