Park Slope Limestone

Half historic restoration, half modern art—this grand limestone house is enlivened by the contrast between the two.  Modern decor perks up the traditional oak and mahogany moldings.

In the kitchen, sleek stone slabs set off a new bay window patterned after the period door casings.  While a refurbished stained glass window takes on new life in a minimalist bathroom.

The bedrooms are small, but each comes with its own private study.  And in a basement once filled with junk, a wood wainscot now harmonizes with crisply etched glass doors.
