Description

Your country escape right here in the heart of Prospect Park South Historic District, this gorgeous single-family Colonial Revival sits on a coveted tree-lined street just 2.5 blocks from the park. Designed around 1906 by prominent architects Slee & Bryson, the elegant landmark home is rich with preserved details and boasts contemporary upgrades throughout. A verdant manicured lawn welcomes you, and a columned porch leads to the foyer adorned with stained glass windows, coffered ceilings, handsome wainscoting, built-in shelves and an oak-lined staircase — all of which set the stage for the airy floor plan brightened by southern exposure and bountiful windows. The room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace with cozy seating nook, an excellent reading spot on a cool winter’s day. The spacious, sun-soaked living room invites relaxation, while the adjacent bay-windowed family room is ideal for intimate dinners or hosting friends and loved ones. Featuring sleek stainless steel appliances, butcher block countertops, cork floors and ample cabinet space, the modern farmhouse kitchen is your backdrop for preparing family favorites and fresh culinary masterpieces. Enjoy informal meals in the adjoining breakfast room with wraparound windows. Between the kitchen and breakfast room, outdoor access provides a pleasurable opportunity for dining alfresco on temperate evenings. The private, fenced-in backyard is an optimal spot for seasonal grilling and sunbathing or creating your own sustainable garden. Upstairs, you will find an oversized master with dual closets and dressing area, as well as a refinished en suite bathroom equipped with dual sinks, walk-in shower and porcelain tub. A second bedroom with en suite half bath and third bedroom with hall access to full bath complete the level. Both rooms are appointed with deep closets. The third floor boasts three additional well-proportioned bedrooms with generous closet space and a shared bathroom. Your future home gym awaits in the downstairs finished basement complete with sauna and changing area. Also on this level, you will find a canning room and laundry area with new washer and dryer unit. Additional features include a three-car driveway, finished garage, and central air conditioning. *Some photos are virtually staged.
