Description

Located in the most coveted Cul de Sac in Historic Prospect Park South, and nestled amongst an impressive variety of architecturally significant houses, this enchanting 5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Colonial Revival is situated on a gloriously large 60 x 100 Lot and is rich with unique and beautifully preserved details and features that are refreshing in their refined simplicity. Reminiscent of Hollywood movies of the Golden Era, this comfortingly familiar architectural style starred as America's dream home. Charming porticos with columns, paneled front doors flanked by sidelights and the multi pane windows with shutters represented the ideal house to call home. The only thing missing here is the white, picket fence! Built in 1918, the understated elegance of the exterior of the house carries over to the interior. Clean lines, beautiful millwork and herringbone parquet floors are enhanced by breathtaking light and sun that fill the house.The welcoming entry hall and graceful stair with turned balusters are in the center of the Parlor floor, flanked by the living area to the left and dining room and kitchen on the right. The sprawling, sun-filled living room has an alcove window seat that extends the length of the front wall and overlooks the picturesque, tree-lined street. The large fireplace with a floor to ceiling wood mantel creates an inviting and cozy atmosphere, ideal for relaxation and family gatherings. Off of the living room is a beautiful two story extension of bright sunrooms with windows on every wall that afford lovely views of green. To the right of the entry hall is an intimate dining room with a symmetrical alcove window with wainscoting, a convenient powder room and the large kitchen with a huge picture window overlooking the expansive backyard. Enjoyment of the outdoors is made easy through doors in the kitchen and sunroom. The beautiful backyard is big enough for whatever your heart desires; outdoor gatherings, planting, or even an in ground pool. There is a gate that opens to the driveway that can easily accommodate 3 cars.The idyllic setting of grass, trees and pretty houses in the distance give this private oasis a truly magical feeling. On the second floor there are three bedrooms, including the large primary suite with a brick fireplace, two ample windowed closets, a big ensuite bath and the upper level of the sun room extension that could be a perfect sitting room, office or art studio. The other two, great sized bedrooms share a Jack and Jill full bath. The third floor has an additional two bedrooms, one with a walk in cedar closet and a full bath. The basement is home to the mechanicals and the laundry room and provides great additional storage space. Just one block to the Parade Grounds and Prospect Park and convenient to the shopping, restaurants and B & Q Trains of Church Ave and Cortelyou Road!
