When it comes to New York City real estate, sometimes it comes down to location, location, location, but many of us need to comprise something in this competitive market. 

For $4,995,000, you can get both a dream Brooklyn address and layout with this Park Slope apartment at 25 Eighth Ave. 

Though it’s a condominium at a building called the Montauk Club, the photos and age of the building, originally built in 1889, make you forget that fact.

As the listing, from Douglas Elliman, says, “If you're tired of seeing glass boxes and cookie-cutter apartments and would like an apartment with a story and a soul, this home is for you.”

One stained glass window would stand out in most New York apartments, but this one has 12, along with 12-foot carved coffered ceilings.

The eclectic and extravagant details keep going:

  • Moroccan tiled floor and oversized soapstone sink in the kitchen
  • Solid oak pocket doors leading to the dining room
  • Master bedroom with a tiled terrace with stone balustrade, and en-suite bath featuring an extra deep copper soaking tub
  • Modern upgrades that include acoustical sound proofing underneath the flooring and radiant heat floors throughout the entire apartment
  • The building itself also has terra cotta ornamentation, Quatrefoil windows, pointed arches, Montauk Indian friezes and a red Spanish tiled roof.

This full-floor, five-bedroom, four-bathroom home also boasts a 50-foot living and dining space, and has an address that is steps away from Prospect Park. It’s no wonder the price is nearly $5 million.
