This seven-bedroom Prospect Park South standalone with double front porches needs updating, but it’s got lots of space and lots of potential. A Colonial Revival built in 1909, it’s at 126 Stratford Road, in the Prospect Park South Historic District.
The place has been in the same family for decades, and while it looks to be in decent general shape it shows plenty of wear. The buyer is looking at bathroom and kitchen updating, floor refinishing, painting, removal of some 70s-style paneling, etc.
What other work lays in store or what shape the mechnicals are in we couldn’t tell you. Either way, it’s a spacious and agreeable layout, with a huge first floor with double living rooms, a large foyer, and a full bath and laundry area off the rear kitchen.
Upstairs are seven bedrooms and two baths; all of the second-floor bedrooms sport bay windows, and one has a door to the upper front deck.
It’s no detail fest, but there are nice parquet floors, a decorative mantel and some stained glass.
One drawback: the lack of a backyard. Or maybe that’s a plus, if having a two-car garage back there instead excites you. There’s a fenced side yard that abuts Turner Place.
Listed by Laura Rozos of Corcoran, the house went up for sale last week at the ambitious price of $2.45 million; it’s already been reduced to $2.25 million. Which still might prove high, given the work needed, but like we said, the place will clean up nicely. What do you think?
