No Shortage of Bedrooms in Dutch Colonial With Massive Front Porch Near Brooklyn College

by
4

Located on a lovely, leafy block of Rugby Road, this beauteous Dutch Colonial offers a hefty slice of the Ditmas dream — or West Midwood dream, to be more precise. With a 4,000-square-foot lot, it’s got a front yard, a huge front porch, a driveway, a big back yard and more rooms on the inside than most non-Mormon families would know what to do with.

There are eight bedrooms, to be exact, four apiece on the top two floors (one oddly labeled a “kitchen” on the floor plan). Not a one is small, though those above have sloping ceilings that cut into the space.

The ground floor’s got a large entrance hall, a living room, a dining room, a sun room, and a big kitchen with butcher-block counters and a wood floor. It’s also got three fireplaces, two of them brick — other details include stained glass, crown moldings and original inlaid floors.

The kitchen and one pictured bath have both been renovated, though probably not recently. Cabinets in the former may have been painted; the latter’s got a curved Art Deco tub and a marble sink counter that may be original.

There’s a finished laundry room in the basement.

In general the house could use some cosmetic upgrading, including floor refinishing, but nothing significant jumps out. The listing, from Ideal Properties broker Melissa Dehncke McGill, offers no details about the condition of the mechanicals or other infrastructure.

The ask is $1.99 million, a figure that once would have turned heads in these parts, but does no longer. Annual taxes are around $8,200. Think it’ll fetch the asking price? Like the house?
