Sleekly Updated Ditmas Park Standalone With Original Details, Garage Asks $2.675 Million

by

This sprawling circa 1901 home is newly and fully renovated, with new kitchen and baths alongside a bit of original detail. A three-story with a front porch and a garage, it’s on a fine, quiet block in the Ditmas Park Historic District, at 497 East 17th Street.

It’s got all the space you’d want, and then some: six bedrooms, a load of closet and storage space, 3.5 baths, and a grand first floor with a library, dining room, king-size living room with dual sets of bay windows, laundry room and eat-in kitchen.

In the dining room there’s wainscoting, a tiled fireplace, a stained glass window, and original mahogany doors and window casings; there and in the living room are original wood floors with decorative inlays. Elsewhere — like in kitchen and the wainscoted library — are new, dark-stained wood floors.

The center staircase is original, with wainscoting and a window bench on the landing between the first and second floors, a nice feature for those who get winded halfway up.

As mentioned, the kitchen is new; it’s got a deluxe 36-inch range, a farmhouse sink, Carrara marble countertops and a wine refrigerator. Baths are all new; the master bath’s walled in Calacatta Gold marble, the third-floor bath has a restored original claw-foot tub.

There’s central air, new windows and a new roof. There are no photos of the yard or exterior, so we can’t fill you in on the condition; presumably they’ve been spruced up along with the interior, but that’s only conjecture.

Listed by Marilyn Wexler of Douglas Elliman, the house is asking $2.675 million. A hefty price tag that would have dropped jaws in these parts not long ago, but that was then, this is now — and it appears to need nothing. What do you make of the ask, and the house itself?
