It’s a Park Slope peep show.

Next up in the annual celebration of voyeurism that is house tour season are some of the most majestic homes in Park Slope.

The self-guided walking tour on May 15 features apartments in the southern Slope that are home to unique art collections, innovative renovations and beautiful gardens.

Highlights are sure to include an 1890s carriage house-cum-contemporary loft that features a stunning kitchen, abstract art by Maria Louisa Pacheco and an American Indian hanging; a 1903 Flemish Renaissance home that has a chandelier in every room; an eco-friendly house that boasts geo-thermal heating and cooling, a recycled floor, and a garden watered by the home’s own well; a 100-year-old Romanesque Revival home decked out with elaborate mantelpieces, Bradbury and Bradbury wallpapers to further phone home the Victorian effect, grand chandeliers, and a working dumbwaiter; and, at an even older Romanesque Revival home from 1893, you’ll find an antique carpet, an old Victrola, and a rare oil painting of Marilyn Monroe.

Now remember, you can look, but you can’t touch.
