    Here’s a formidable house, an elegant Colonial Revival with an Ionic-columned porch that’s been modernized and restored, with loads of original millwork and stained glass windows. Dating to 1899, it’s at 171 Marlborough Road in the Prospect Park South Historic District.

    It’s a vast one, with six bedrooms, a 200-foot lot with a two-car garage and a sprawling ground floor that incorporates a living room, a dining room, a study, a spacious foyer, the kitchen and a breakfast room. Pocket doors, unfinished original woodwork, bay windows and stained and leaded glass abound.

    There’s a healthy dose of the latter in the dining room, which has a graceful arched doorway with French doors leading out to a sweet rear porch, a circular number with a bit of a Southern vibe, with its columns, balusters and ceiling fan.

    The kitchen’s a nice one, with a country-kitchen feel, high-grade appliances, a pantry and a small desk built into what looks like a former hearth.

    The second floor is currently set up as a grand master suite, with a sitting room, an office, a workout room, a guest room, a laundry room and two full baths, including a master bath with a steam shower and radiant floor heating. There are two more bedrooms and a full bath on the top floor.

    With the lot stretching 200 feet the backyard is considerable in size; it’s not pictured, but no doubt that dog that’s photoshopped into one of the interior shots would enjoy having the run of it.

    The mechanicals have been upgraded in deluxe fashion, with four-zone heat, a high-efficiency boiler, zoned air conditioning and an integrated security, HVAC and lighting control system. The roof and copper gutters are new and the basement has been waterproofed. So it wouldn’t seem to need much.

    Listed by Jeffery L. Welch and Mary Kay Seery of Brown Harris Stevens, the house is asking $3.25 million, not a low figure but also not a stretch. What do you think?
