Here’s a charmer of a single-family house on a distinctive block. At 14 Martense Court in Flatbush, it’s one of 14 semi-detached brick homes on the cul de sac, which were built in one fell swoop in 1915 and 1916.
Colonial Revival houses with Flemish rooflines, front patios and Craftsman details within, they were written up as Buildings of the Day a few years back.
This is among the largest, according to the listing, with four bedrooms and a finished English basement with a private entrance.
There are some nice details on the first floor, including a brick fireplace with a columned mantel, french doors, parquet floors, a coffered ceiling and mahogany chair rails in the dining room, and a stained glass window.
The kitchen is attractively renovated; it’s got white Shaker cabinetry and a large pantry.
There are more original parquet floors upstairs, where there are four closeted bedrooms and a bathroom. There’s also a powder room tucked under the stairs on the first floor and a bath with a shower in the English basement.
The latter also holds a gym, a home office and a laundry room.
Listed by Douglas Elliman brokers Maureen Hogan and Jeffrey Block, the house is asking $1.499 million. What do you think of it?
