One of the earliest houses in Ditmas Park, this enchanting Three Story, 5 Bedroom, 2 Bath Victorian home was transported to Ditmas Park from Flatlands the late 1800's!
Distinctly different from later houses, this beauty has an understated elegance and cozy proportions that give it an unmistakably warm and comfortable farmhouse vibe. The gated front garden and an attached one car garage welcome you into the spacious, sun drenched, enclosed front porch with high, exposed beams and wall to wall windows. Lovely French doors open into the entry foyer with an original Pier mirror and staircase that has impressive carved balusters and a graceful curved handrail. The double Parlor has oversized, 84" floor to ceiling windows that fill the rooms with beautiful natural light and sun. A showcase of original detail includes a working wood burning fireplace with a marble mantel, perfectly preserved plaster moldings, parquet floors, stained glass and all of the original doors and hardware.
The large eat-in kitchen has long stretches of counter space, ample cabinetry for storage and a sweet, windowed dining alcove. A door off of the kitchen leads to a deck and lovely backyard making enjoyment of the outdoors easily accessible and perfect for entertaining and al fresco dining. A large paved area off the deck is surrounded by grass and beautiful peripheral plantings including Lilac and Hydrangea. There is a charming path on the side of the house with slate pavers bordered by lush ground cover.
On the second floor are three beautiful, sun drenched bedrooms, all with decorative mantels, parquet floors and amazing closet space! There is also a full bath on this floor with a shower/tub combo. The third floor feels like an apartment suite with a cozy sitting room flanked by an additional two large bedrooms, and a full bath with a glass enclosed shower. There is also a huge, windowed attic storage room on this floor. The clean, open, partially finished basement has great ceiling height and windows, perfect for a spacious play room, gym or office. All of this just steps to the shopping and restaurants of Newkirk Plaza and Cortelyou Road, and the B & Q Trains to Manhattan!
