Here’s a nice basic one-bedroom centrally located in Ditmas Park. The kitchen and bathroom finishes are a little blah, but the layout and size of the place are good and the maintenance is a modest $556 a month. With a price tag of $249,000, this seems like a pretty good value to us for someone looking to get into the market for the first time.

This standalone house in Ditmas Park appears to have it all: beautiful late-model Arts & Crafts-meets-Victorian details in perfect condition, plus recently renovated kitchens and baths that don’t clash with the feel of the house. It also has a new roof, central air, five bedrooms, and a garage. How do you like it for $1,749,000?

It’s pretty rare an entire home goes up for rent in the Prospect Park South Historic District, so this one at 1220 Albemarle will probably get a lot of attention. It’s an interesting-looking house (from what we can tell from the photo) and the interior looks fairly plain. But you can’t beat all that space, a driveway, garage and patio. The monthly rent: $4,500.

How cute is the exterior of this turn-of-the-last-century one-family detached house at 462 Westminster Road in Ditmas Park? What’s more, the house has an original butler’s pantry, a working gas fireplace in the entry, and a hidden staircase! We’re not enthusiastic about that kitchen, though. The six-bedroom house with garage is priced at $1,175,000. Do you think they’ll get it?

This two-bedroom at 2116 Dorchester Road in Ditmas Park looks like it offers quite a bit of space for not a lot of money. The 1,000-square-foot apartment is asking $1,600 a month. The unit has been on the market all summer and was initially priced at $1,650. Wonder why it hasn’t rented yet.

Our friends at PropertyShark once again complied neighborhood data to provide a market snapshot of Ditmas Park. The boundaries used were Church Avenue to Avenue H and Coney Island Avenue to Bedford Avenue. Needless to say, the numbers are all over the place, but there’s no denying a general appreciation of apartment prices in the neighborhood. (more…)
This three-family house at 758 Westminster Road in Ditmas Park is bursting with appealing porches, fireplaces, built-ins, paneling and original doors. But it’s going to take some plumbing and tile work to bring that toilet back down to earth. The house is currently configured as a two family. How do you like the $999,000 price tag?

Holy cow, this new listing at 164 Westminster Road in
Ditmas Park Prospect Park South is a beauty! The eight-bedroom house has amazing original detail and has been impeccably renovated. (Imagine cooking in that kitchen! Or drinking on that porch!) We could go on and on, but check out the photos and be your own judge. The asking price is $1,750,000. We think they’ll get it easily.

This modest but cute house at 554 Westminster Road in Ditmas Park (or Ditmas Park West, to be more precise, which Mary Kay Gallagher tends to be when it comes to Victorian Flatbush) just hit the market with an asking price of $890,000. The interior photos are a bit dark so probably don’t do the original details justice. It has a nice vibe though as well as a driveway and two-car garage. Given the limited options in the under-$1 million range, we suspect this will attract interest.

This new co-op listing at 400 East 17th Street in Ditmas Park looks like a nice starter apartment for a young family. The 900-square-foot two-bedroom was probably a one-bedroom at some point, but the annexed eating area has a window and is plenty big enough for a small child. The apartment is in very good shape and is nicely appointed, so for a price of $345,000 and a monthly maintenance of $762, this looks like a pretty solid option.

A long-time reader (and fig tree grower) sent this in yesterday: “I thought your viewers might enjoy our latest attempt to foil the mosquito menace that plaques our borough every summer. We bought a 30″ air king industrial fan for our porch. Hopefully our kids wont lose any fingers!” Any other tactics readers have been using to fight the war on skeeters?
Well, this house at 49 Westminster Road ain’t much to look at, and the two-bedroom apartment in it appears to be standard-issue. But we will say that for a two bed/two bath in good shape, a half-block from the park, with all utilities included, $1,800/month isn’t bad. We off base here?

If you’ve been looking for a house in Ditmas Park for under a million bucks, this may be your lucky day. This new listing at 511 East 16th Street, while not as impressive as some of the other wooden Victorian houses in the area, still has some nice original features, a driveway, a front yard and a rear deck and garage. With an asking price of $890,000, we bet this’ll go fast.

What’s not to love about this new listing at 312 Westminster Road in Ditmas Park? Nothing, as far as we can tell. The six-bedroom house looks to be in great shape, with beaucoup details like inlaid wood floors and moldings and improvements like a modern kitchen and a new deck. The free-standing house also has its own driveway. Price is $1,695,000.

Ditmas Park Corner posts today about the case of the missing trees on Stratford Road: “Where there used to be young street trees, about 20 circles of dirt now line Stratford Road between Albemarle and Beverley. This past Friday morning the trees were dug up because, according to a couple of neighbors, they didn’t conform to the original plan for the neighborhood of Prospect Park South.” In the origional neighborhood design trees were planted every 20 feet along the building line, not along the curb. The trees were offered to residents of the block to plant on private lawns and have also popped up elsewhere, specifically on Avenue H between Rugby and Westminster Roads.
