The charming façade.A recently listed $4.3M townhouse in Park Slope has the unique distinction of being the former home of Barack Obama after he graduated from Columbia University.

An original china cabinet can be found in the double parlor and the third floor houses a rare Victorian inglenook. The garden level kitchen has been recently renovated and features slate and soapstone countertops flanked by custom cabinetry and high-end appliances.
