Home sweet home indeed.
A prime Prospect Park-facing townhouse has hit the market, and it serves up a true treat with a cherry on top.
“Among the many unique highlights of this prewar gem is an incredible 1950s-inspired ice cream parlor with tin ceiling and old-fashion-style seating on the garden level,” describes 21 Prospect Park West’s listing, held by Douglas Elliman’s Michelle Griffith and Tricia Tucker. It asks $9.95 million for sale.
The standout amenity has a black and white-checkered floor, turquoise-cushioned high top bar stools with a chic booth to match, a baby pink counter and door, a nostalgically styled fridge and microwave, beer taps — and plenty of overhead cabinet space.
“This is the quintessential Brooklyn brownstone with a twist; its very own ice cream parlor, making it very popular for anyone with a sweet tooth!” Griffith told The Post.
“My wife sent me this Zillow listing and said ‘Just scroll,’” wrote author Jason Diamond in a viral tweet about the house. “I’m glad I did because the big reveal makes me think this home really is worth nine million.”
Besides the ice cream parlor, the nearly 25-foot-wide townhouse is an absolute stunner.
Built in 1901, the Renaissance Revival-style property measures 7,500 square feet and features an elegantly restored interior.
There are six bedrooms and six fireplaces — not to mention wood-trimmed windows, intricate moldings and original woodwork throughout. On the parlor floor there’s a foyer, a living room, a powder room, a dining room, a kitchen and a bay-windowed breakfast nook. A double-height central gallery on the first floor is topped by a turn-of-the-century chandelier — the floor below visible from a balcony that wraps the second floor.
The second story has a wood-paneled library with a Juliet balcony overlooking Prospect Park, as well as a rear terrace. The third-floor primary bedroom has its own sitting room and an ensuite bath with a dual vanity. The top floor has three bedrooms, one bath, a storage room and a snack bar-equipped screening room — if the ice cream parlor wasn’t sweet enough.
All five floors are accessible via two internal staircases.
As for outdoor space, there’s a stoop, a private backyard — and of course the easily accessible Prospect Park just across the street.
