About this Property
Martense Court is secluded, social and sunny. Life in this historic cul-de-sac is reminiscent of a bygone age where kids could play out in the street and run from one house to another to swap toys. This is a place where you can sit on your terrace, sip tea and chat to your neighbors across the street! The proportions of this home are ample and elegant. Enter into the foyer with an arts and crafts staircase and striking pillars and you see a glimpse of the stained glass windows down the hall. The sitting room is illuminated by 3 large windows and features an original mantel and brick fireplace. The dining room has a coffered ceiling and is large enough to house even the grandest dinner party. There are original parquet floors throughout. A large eat in kitchen opens out on to a newly built deck perfect for your morning coffee. Stairs lead down to an easy to maintain garden with turf, a built in planter box and an expansive wooden deck complete with a fire pit. Ascend the stairs to an open landing, reading nook and 4 bedrooms. The primary bedroom is the full width of the house with enough space for a king sized bed and side table plus a huge dressing area opposite. The back of the house features another large room currently configured as a spacious home office. The bathroom has been totally renovated and has a sleek tub and shower combo with a glass door and double sinks. Light streams in from two skylights--one in the wide open hallway and another in the bathroom. The house features a totally refurbished English basement. The options for this level are many including a separate space for a home school, a place to host your in-laws or a live in nanny. It is currently set up as a useful flex space functioning as a play room, Peloton room and guest quarters. There is a full accessory kitchen, full bath and laundry room plus easy walk out egress to both the front terrace and back garden. Local favorites include Loud Baby and Cinnamon Girl coffee shops, Drip Beverage Lounge, Risbo and Parkside Pizza. Greenlight bookstore and the spectacular King's Theater are also in the neighborhood. Prospect Park is within easy strolling distance and the B/Q and 2/5 are convenient.
