In the Prospect Park South Historic District, here’s a three-story, single-family Colonial Revival built in 1901 and designed by Benjamin Driesler. Located at 214 Marlborough Road, the standalone home has an ionic columned porch and an interior rich with original details.
It’s also in excellent condition. A leaded glass, double door entry opens to a vestibule and foyer with pocket doors. There’s a bay-windowed library to one side and a dining room with a working fireplace to the other, with inlaid parquet floors, plaster ceiling moldings and medallions, millwork door surrounds and stained glass windows throughout.
The rear parlor has a coffered ceiling and two full walls of windows. Past the hall closet and a powder room is the open, eat-in kitchen, which has a small island, space for a dining table, and a combination of pendant and inset lighting.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has an en suite bath and bedroom-sized dressing room. There are some original details in the seven bedrooms, including a total of three decorative mantels.
In addition to its large front porch, the home’s exterior boasts a swans neck pediment and colorful detailing. The finished cellar has a wet bar, home office and recreation space.
It’s located just up the block from the Beverley Road Q station and has been in the same family since 1991. Corcoran’s Jamaal Redon has the listing, which is asking $2.995 million. Do you think it’ll get its ask?
