This 2,900 (approx.) square foot Victorian home has seven sumptuously sized bedrooms on a 50 x 100 foot lot. Adjoining this beautiful home is a 50 x 100 ft garden (lot) big enough for a pool and guesthouse or your own private Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Built in 1904 and is currently in the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park landmarked Historic District. Relax this summer on your front or screened in porch with a tall glass of lemonade...or, perhaps, something stronger. Enter into the gracious, spacious parlor and sitting room where sun streams into your bay windowed living room with a sitting nook. The dining room and eat- in kitchen, also extremely sunny, are perfect for large dinner parties. Details and charm immediately are present starting with the ceiling molding, three sets of pocket doors, in-laid hardwood floors and two decorative fireplaces.
Three of the four bedrooms on the second level are sunny & oversized and either one will be a great master bedroom. In fact, you will have trouble making the selection. One flight up to the third floor, there is another large bedroom that is currently the master, plus two additional bedrooms and a private storage area.
There is a private driveway plus a single car garage and room enough to park 5 cars when you are having guests. Mechanically and structurally sound with the benefits of a 2014 shingle roof and a 3 year old boiler. Electric and plumbing have been updated along with a new copper water main. Cellar is clean and open.
Close to Cortelyou Road where you will find the well known and reviewed Farm on Adderley, The Flatbush Food Coop, The Cortelyou Green Market and Mimi's Hummus. Don't miss The Ox Cart Tavern on Newkirk. Bike ride to Prospect Park and The Brooklyn Museum. Great schools abound. Also, two blocks to the Newkirk B/Q stop.
