A designer’s home is both her calling card and her workshop, but the most important thing, at least to Delia Kenza Brennen, is that it feel like home — a place where she, her husband, and their two daughters can be comfortable.

Packed with stunning early 20th century detail, this single-family Flatbush home offers plenty of room to spread out, a deep front porch for observing the neighborhood, and guaranteed parking with a driveway and two-car garage. Located in the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District, the freestanding house at 701 East 17th Street was originally part of the Midwood Park development.
