Here’s a grand 1907 Colonial in move-in condition that offers all you want in a Prospect Park South manse, including acres of space, original details, tasteful updates, a sweet wraparound porch and a century-old cherry tree. It’s at 85 Argyle Road, between Church and Albemarle, in the Prospect Park South Historic District.
Curb appeal is considerable, with its landscaped front yard, gracefully curving enclosed porch and upper bays with diamond-paned windows.
The grandeur extends to the inside, where the parlor floor holds coffered ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, pocket doors, parquet floors with inlaid borders, a window bay with a built-in bench, and a dining room with stained glass and wood paneling.
There’s a nice, updated eat-in kitchen with black granite counters, white cabinetry, a tin ceiling, four windows and a butler’s pantry.
The upper floors hold six bedrooms, including one that adjoins a sleeping porch, one with a large bay window and a master with a giant en suite bath with a freestanding tub set within a window bay.
There’s a bricked-in backyard and a driveway that leads to a garage, built a few years after the main house.
Listed by Rebekah Carver of Brooklyn Hearth, the house is asking a whopping $3 million. A house down the street at 1305 Albemarle asked just a hair under that and sold for $2.75 million — that one was considerably grander than this one, though it also needed some work. What do you think of the house, and the ask?
