Today’s House of the Day is another circa-1900 freestanding Colonial Revival landmarked wood frame house in Ditmas Park — almost a twin to yesterday’s House of the Day. In fact, it was designed by the same architect, A. White Pierce, and built in 1906.
We’re guessing it’s in somewhat better condition than that one although still needing quite a bit of work and perhaps with not as many original details intact.
Although the crown molding is missing in some of the parlor rooms, there’s a lot of unpainted oak woodwork and a pretty, albeit altered, mantel in the hall. There’s also a very interesting high style 1950s bath reminiscent of Fornasetti with zany black and white tile and a transparent plastic or fiberglass panel with black and brown butterflies above the sink that might be worth saving in whole or in part. Another bath still has its original marble sink and a bit of a gas jet sconce still in the wall.
There’s also a detached two-car garage. What do you think of it for $2,199,000?
