The circa 1901 gem exudes character and elegance, with original details at every turn, including beautiful archways, intricate inlaid parquet flooring, soaring ceilings with plaster molding and medallions, box shutters, and handsome marble mantles and fireplaces. Recent updates include split-system air-conditioning, a new boiler, and new roof."

The prewar townhouse at 121 Lincoln Place in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood comprises four stories with separate entrances at the parlor and ground levels. The 1901 home is filled with custom lighting fixtures by its current owner, New York lighting designer Lindsey Adelman.

The parlor-level entrance features an arched opening with glazed French doors, as well as parquet floors and plaster molding.

"Tall windows invite warm natural light into the expansive living room with a fireplace and wall of built-ins, which overlooks the picturesque yard," says the listing agent.

"The formal dining room with an oversize window extends the perfect layout for entertaining, and can accommodate a large table and chairs," says the listing agent. 

The parlor level also includes a full bathroom with a pedestal sink and shower/tub.

From the parlor, a wooden staircase ascends to the sleeping areas. The third floor includes the primary bedroom, which offers a decorative fireplace, dual closets, and an en suite bath. 

Another room on third level currently serves as an office. Three additional rooms on the fourth floor can be used as workspaces or sleeping quarters.

"The ground level with an exterior entrance features a comfortable family room in front," says the listing agent.

"Beyond is a well-appointed chef’s kitchen with abundant cabinetry, a big island, honed Italian limestone countertops, a Wolf range, and a glass door to the generous yard," says the listing agent.

A large casement window in the breakfast nook looks out onto the backyard’s barbecue area.

"The 90-foot-deep private garden is landscaped with roses, hydrangeas, honeysuckle, rhododendron, azaleas, lilies, evergreen shrubs, and cypress trees," says the listing agent.
