Description

Welcome to Polhemus Place, a tiny, leafy enclave within Park Slope reminiscent of Dickens Christmas with the gas lights in front yards. This one-block street is intimate and intact with late 1880’s townhouses, all family residences. Approached from either Carroll Street or Garfield Place, tranquility is the first impression of the block. Myriad architectural styles are grouped delightfully, and the mature trees and minimal traffic combine to create a distinctly bucolic feel in the heart of the city....Welcome to Polhemus Place, a tiny, leafy enclave within Park Slope reminiscent of Dickens Christmas with the gas lights in front yards. This one-block street is intimate and intact with late 1880’s townhouses, all family residences. Approached from either Carroll Street or Garfield Place, tranquility is the first impression of the block. Myriad architectural styles are grouped delightfully, and the mature trees and minimal traffic combine to create a distinctly bucolic feel in the heart of the city.

Number 20 is one of 6 Romanesque Revival homes designed by architect J.D. McAuliffe. These are the classic brownstones that Brooklyn is known for and that lure so many people to the neighborhood. At 18.5’ wide and 45’ deep, the house offers 3,200+ square feet of lovely living space and a full basement for storage. Some of the key features are:

-4 large bedrooms
-3 full baths
-3 Wood burning fireplaces
-Central air conditioning
-Deck off parlor floor kitchen
-Large garden
-Gas lights in front and back
-Original floors
-Period details throughout
-New roof
-Restored facade
-New furnace boiler
-Real estate taxes approx $11,000/year

The current owners use the house as a one-family home; however, there are two full kitchens should a new owner wish to have a tenant on the garden level. With east/west exposure, the house is filled with light. A lovely house on a perfect block - this is the one you’ve been waiting for.
