This sprawling three-story standalone, which served as the inspiration for main character Frye’s home in the animated TV series “Futurama,” is on the market for the first time in decades. It’s a seven-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath house located at 516 Rugby Road, in Ditmas Park.
In addition to a wraparound front porch, the property also boasts a shared driveway leading to a one-car garage behind the home.
The interior appears to be in lovely condition, with leaded glass pocket doors, parquet floors, stained glass, bay windows and original wainscoting and staircase. Although, a paint job might be in order, and the mechanicals may need upgrading.
On the first floor, there’s a generous living room and dining area, with a charming if dated kitchen in the back of the house with a pantry and door leading onto the back porch.
The floors above are composed of the bedrooms and both bathrooms, as well as a laundry room and closets throughout. There are no available photos of the basement, although the floor plan shows a sink, plenty of storage and, according to the listing, a recently replaced boiler and hot water heater.
The exterior might require some repair, although it’s not nearly in as bad shape as the totaled condition Frye finds it in after unintentionally time-traveling to the future on “Futurama.” (In addition to being home to the “Futurama” house, Brooklyn is also home to a Futurama Civic Association, which is located far afield in Flatlands.)
The home is about two blocks from the B and Q express stop at Newkirk Plaza, in a much-desired corner of the borough. Laura Rozos of Corcoran has the listing, which is asking $2.195 million.
