Welcome to the neighborhood! The leafy trees, green lawns and blooming flowers of this very special block in Ditmas Park, lead you to this gem of a Victorian house at 637 East 24th Street.
This stunner underwent a complete gut renovation only five years ago and was redesigned by the esteemed architecture firm, Studio PPARK. It is a seamless fusion of historic charm and modern aesthetic and convenienceand a renovation like no other in all of Ditmas Park. At 2650 square feet of interior space, 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, on a 40 x 100 lot, your own driveway and 2-car garagethis home will fulfill all of your house dreams.
Open the gate of the white picket fence and head across the green grass (that is dotted with a riot of daffodils in spring) and past the abundant plantings and flowers to the wrap around front porch and open the door.
This floor has been completely redesigned and opened up. As you enter, you are greeted by a proper entryway and mudroom with shelving for shoes and an over-sized coat closet. There are no walls to hinder the sunshine or the flow of this jaw-dropping level. The kitchen has been moved to the front of the house and features custom-designed millwork and cabinetry including extra storage, and designated space for garbage and recycling. The countertops and center island are topped with Caesarstone and there is custom-designed tile work throughout. The kitchen features Fisher & Paykel oven, stovetop and refrigerator and a Miele dishwasher along with a garbage disposal. There is also an added pantry. Move toward the back of this leveland the gorgeous hardwood floorsand you will find the extended landing of the staircase and a most charming powder room with Flavor Paper wallpaper.
The sprawling dining area and living room open up before you, and your eyes cant help but to be drawn to the floor-to-ceiling wall of windows that look out onto the very zen and lush back yard. The pièce de résistance is that the wall opens upaccordion stylegiving you a very California vibe and the ability to extend your living, dining and entertaining seamlessly onto the new Ipe wood deck and down to feel the grass under your feet and to smell the cherry blossoms.
This floor has also undergone a complete and thorough renovation. It features 2 smaller and light-filled bedrooms, and a completely redesigned, windowed bathroom with large soaking tub and radiant floor heating. The primary bedroom is as it should be: large, bright, and inviting. There is a custom-built, large walk-in/walk-through closet that leads to a dreamy and bright, windowed en suite bathroom (that was added by the owners) with large shower stall, double-sink vanity, rain shower along with radiant floor heating.
Other than refinishing and staining the floors, the current owners maintained the original layout of this lovely floor and use the larger bedroom as a home office, studio and guest room. The other bedroom on this floor is now used as a charming meditation room that overlooks the rear yard. This floor also includes a very sizable, windowed full bathroom.
Basement and Mechanicals:
The dry basement has concrete floors and is full-height. A brand new LG washer and dryer along with sink, make it the ideal laundry room. Additionally, there is a bathroom and ample storage space. Throughout the house there is multi-zoned, central AC; SONOS surround sound in every room and even outside; all-new piping, ductwork and electrical.
