About this Property
Located in the most coveted Cul de Sac in Historic Prospect Park South, and nestled amongst an impressive variety of architecturally significant houses, this enchanting 5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Colonial Revival is situated on a gloriously large 60 x 100 Lot and is rich with unique and beautifully preserved details and features that are refreshing in their refined simplicity. Reminiscent of Hollywood movies of the Golden Era, this comfortingly familiar architectural style starred as America's dream home. Charming porticos with columns, paneled front doors flanked by sidelights and the multi pane windows with shutters represented the ideal house to call home. The only thing missing here is the white, picket fence! Built in 1918, the understated elegance of the exterior of the house carries over to the interior.
