Though its grand facade is made of limestone—not brownstone—this week's townhouse pick otherwise hits all the marks as a piece of Brooklyn real estate eye candy.

The 1906 five-bedroom, three-bath home has been recently renovated to include modern amenities such as central air-conditioning and audio and lighting systems, but also retains original touches, including the mahogany main staircase, wood details, and wainscotting throughout, and the stately main living room:

The main floor also features a central parlor and a formal dining room—both of which have fireplaces—as well as a kitchen, which is separated from the dining area by French doors and looks onto the home's backyard:

Up one floor you'll find the master suite, which includes an en-suite bathroom with a stained glass window and heated stone floors, as well as a private outdoor deck also overlooking the backyard:

This level also features a dressing room with built-in closets, which leads into an ornate study equipped with a gas fireplace, custom bookcases, and carved mahogany columns:

On the next floor up, there are two private suites, each with a bedroom and connected study.

On the garden level, there's an extra guest suite (with its own bath), a TV room, storage rooms, and a high-end laundry room, which includes two walk-in closets:

Unsurprisingly, this place will cost you a pretty penny: The current asking price is $5.475 million. But for this level of grandeur just steps from Prospect Park, would you expect any less?
