Here’s a Ditmas Park Edwardian with a ton of space, some fetching details and a sweet wraparound porch. Dating back to 1903, it’s in the Ditmas Park Historic District, at 444 East 17th Street, at the corner of Ditmas Avenue.
Such houses tend to be large, but this one goes to 11 in that regard. Even a large family would be hard pressed to fill this space, which incorporates nine bedrooms, many of them large, five bathrooms, and a sweeping ground floor with a wood-paneled dining room, a huge living room, and a vast foyer with an awesome corner nook set within a window bay.
There’s also a ground-floor den/office space with a separate entrance, which could have a function for someone who runs a home-based business that involves client visits.
In the detail division there’s leaded glass, wainscoting, parquet floors and six fireplace mantels.
There looks to be a bit of work needed. There’s no photo of the kitchen, which may well be an upgrade candidate; some baths may need attention, and there are various rough edges to be seen.
There’s a side yard but no backyard; in its place there’s a driveway and a two-car garage, a tradeoff some will be happy to make. The Q train at Cortelyou is a short walk.
Listed by Laura Rozos of Corcoran, the house is asking $3.85 million. Which is on the steep side for these parts, especially figuring in some possible renovation costs, but as noted it’s a lot of house. What’s your view?
