About this Property
Rare opportunity to restore one of the great homes of the Prospect Park South Historic District which is noted for still adhering to its original vision to "illustrate how much of rural beauty can be incorporated within the rectangular limits of the conventional city block".

Located on a prized neighborhood block, this sprawling home of over 6,000 square feet was designed in 1900 with a brick and shingle facade and wrap-around front porch. Upon opening the front door, a visitor is greeted by a gracious entry space with intact historic details including elaborate plasterwork and mantles that flank either end of the nearly 40 wide space. The rest of the first floor consists of a large living room with intact wood paneling/built-ins, a large oval shaped dining room, a large kitchen with separate pantry and original built-ins, a half bath, and a rear enclosed porch. The second floor consists of a total of six bedrooms and three bathrooms of varying sizes, all of which have multiple exposures and intact historic details including mantles, wood floors, and plasterwork. A back staircase leads to the third floor which has full height ceilings and windows, and consists of an additional four bedrooms that can be used as such or as playrooms/offices/studios, as well as a full bath. The basement level has a large laundry room, a craft/hobby room, and large open space for storage. The house sits on a rectangular lot with mature plantings, and plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors/gardening as well as a parking area for two cars.

Located just a couple blocks from the express trains (Q & B) which provide access to Manhattan in 30 minutes, and as well to the shopping/dining on Church Avenue and Cortelyou Road, yet on a pin-drop quiet tree-lined street. Seize the opportunity to be only the 4th owner of this rare Brooklyn gem that has it all - space, historic details, greenspace, parking, and proximity to public transportation / shopping.
