First Showing March 3rd!
Set on a leafy corner lot, this newly renovated Victorian home, built in 1910, is truly a find. When you make your way through its front yard to its huge wrap-around porch, you'll feel transported, as the house is nicely set back from the curb, creating a sense of peace and privacy.
As you enter, beyond the tiled vestibule, you'll find a well laid out ground floor with an open plan and great flow. To the left, separated by glass French doors, is an office/library. To the right is a cozy living room with an original marble wood-burning fireplace. This room gives way to a bay-windowed full dining room and a large adjacent kitchen that has so many wonderful features: a built-in pantry, honed quartz countertops, a sit-at island, walnut open shelving, a 48-inch six-burner Thermador range, a Kraus undermount sink, a massive south-facing picture window, and two mini skylights. Situated off the kitchen and dining room for privacy, there is a spacious windowed powder room with beautiful cement floor tile.
On the second floor you'll find three generously sized sun-filled rooms as well as a convenient laundry room, a linen closet, and a big bathroom that has an original stained-glass window. A luxurious master suite occupies the third floor, and there you'll find a master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a separate alcove for lounging, working, or reading. A massive walk-in closet that has a great built-in shelving and drawer system can be accessed from the bedroom, the landing, and the large master bath, which has a double sink, a deep free-standing soaking tub, and a separate glass shower stall.
The back door to the house opens onto a lovely wooden deck made from durable ipe, which overlooks a large fenced-in side yard. A private driveway leads to a double garage. In addition to the three floors, there is a fully finished basement that has a flexible-use room just off a comfortable family room, a stylish full bathroom, an additional washer/dryer area, and 7-foot ceilings. There is additional storage space in the attic.
Having recently undergone a total renovation, this modernized home features three-zone radiant heat, on-demand hot water and energy efficient furnace, and new double-pane windows. Additionally, there is a new roof, new Hardie board siding, Cat-6 wiring, and a security system. Each room has its own wall-mounted mini-split air conditioning unit.
This splendid house in the tree-lined West Midwood section of Victorian Flatbush/Ditmas Park is like a vacation home with access to all the conveniences of Brooklyn--including the Q and B trains, Prospect Park, and Ditmas Park amenities including the Cortelyou Road Farmers Market, shops, and restaurants.
