As soon as you enter this Park Slope townhouse, it feels like you might’ve just stepped into the page of a West Elm catalog. The three-bedroom home, which has been thoughtfully renovated, is full of clean lines, open spaces, and mid-century-modern design inspiration, including a Noguchi lamp and a David Weeks chandelier. The $2,595,000 price tag also gets you a second-floor terrace and gorgeous rear patio and garden.

The parlor floor is completely open and flows seamlessly from the living to the kitchen/dining room. The living room is anchored by an Isamu Noguchi lamp and a custom fireplace. The kitchen features reclaimed open shelving, a large waterfall island, and stainless-steel appliances. This entire space is highlighted by a full, floor-to-ceiling glass wall that overlooks the garden below; a doorway leads to stairs down to the yard. Above the dining table, you’ll find the David Weeks chandelier. Also on this floor are a powder room and coat closet.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bath with a claw-foot tub, a standing glass shower, a cool concrete sink, and a skylight.

The rear bedroom has a full wall of closets and opens onto the terrace, which is laid with Brazilian Ipe wood decking.

Back inside, the restored central staircase leads down to the garden level.

This level is currently configured as one huge rec room, but an alternative floor plan in the listing shows that a third bedroom could be added here. There’s a wall of concealed closets, including a washer/dryer, and a full bathroom.

Floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors open to the rear garden, which is surrounded by lovely Ipe fencing. The patio area has built-in seating, while the lawn is beautifully landscaped.

The home is located between Fourth and Fifth Avenues and is just a few blocks from the F and G trains at Fourth Avenue and the R train at 9th Street.
