This single-family fully detached home is a sweet COUNTRY COTTAGE in the heart of Bay Ridge BROOKLYN! Here is a unique opportunity to own your own house for less than the cost of a condo. Enter the property through a storybook arbor into the front garden resplendent with flowers, trees and climbing vines, framed by a white picket fence. The enclosed breezeway/entry hall leads into the main living spaces on the first floor. In front is a spacious living room and across the hall a modern chef's kitchen with Thermador range & hood, and two ovens, Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher and an adjacent butler's pantry with wine fridge. The kitchen opens onto the dining room, with a built-in mahogany-top office/work space and a bank of windows facing the gorgeous rear garden. There is direct access from the dining area onto a raised patio, which leads down to the huge private back yard. This unique outdoor space offers sought-after privacy right in the city, and comes complete with sitting areas, tremendous mature trees, and a lush green lawn. A spacious and bright bathroom completes this level.

Upstairs you'll find two bedrooms, a home office/nursery and another windowed full bath. Other features include hardwood floors throughout, abundant natural lights, and split A/C units on the main floor. There is also a basement with full-height ceilings that has loads of upside potential to create a rec room, play room, or nice work-from-home space. The basement also offers a workshop, storage, and laundry with full-size Bosch washer/dryer. Who needs a country home upstate? You can have the lifestyle you want right here in Brooklyn! With wondrous front and rear gardens and a true "country cottage" feel inside, you'll never want to leave town. This charming house is so special, you've got to walk the property to truly appreciate it.

Bay Ridge is known for its quiet streets and "neighborly" feel. It is less hectic than many other gentrified Brooklyn neighborhoods, yet remains vibrant and diverse. Bay Ridge is also home to a wide array of restaurants, bars, cafes, specialty markets, and abundant shopping destinations. 459 78th Street is located just one block from R train.
