Town and country
Tarry by day at Manhattan’s magnetic, high-energy core - but give over, by dusk, to this winsome four bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom townhome. Set in the bezels of Park Slope, that verdant, parkside heart of Brooklyn hospitality, 14th Street is three full floors plump with rich, dark wood mouldings and lace and aglitter with crystal, stained glass, and gilt. Here at your jewelled fingertips unfolds the very essence of Victorian-era opulence.
Victoria and Albert
Your hosts are a power couple, a duo of accomplished professionals active in literary circles and creative endeavours. Luxuriate in the gracious welcome of their manor, and you’ll quickly appreciate why they so adore their lush parkland perch.
Conduct yourself straightaway into the decadent parlour, a masterwork profusion of lavish carpets and gorgeously upholstered dark wood furnishings framed by a triptych bay window. Share a quiet morsel in a chef’s daydream kitchen, a mosaic- and sage-frosted culinary haven that showcases steel appliances and acres of marble-topped counter space, or dine al fresco on the private terrace.
Entertaining local notables? Girded in mahogany wainscoting and stained glass yet embellished with rustic cotton textiles and hand-painted chinaware, the grand dining room is equal parts palace-proper and countryside cosy. And with a warren of private, thoughtfully appointed quarters unfolding across the two floors above, rest easy as you journey the harried city centre.
Positioned perfectly at the southwest corner of Prospect Park, expect to want for nothing where rolling green landscapes are concerned: you’re within sight of tranquil parkland lush enough to make Central Park green with envy. Indulge in the regal treatment afforded by this quiet, leafy Brooklyn neighbourhood, or board the F or G for easy passage elsewhere.
