Description

Enjoy comfortable, elegant living in this beautiful 2-family home mere moments to Brooklyn’s prized Prospect Park! The handsome semi-detached townhouse, built in 1901, is architecturally distinctive and perfectly located, set on an extra-deep 140’ lot with a private driveway and detached 2-car garage for parking multiple vehicles. A large, lovely front gated courtyard greets your arrival to the charming brick building designed in the Italianate and Queen Anne styles, featuring a bay front, terracotta projecting ornament, and classic cornice crowning its striking facade. In the rear you’ll enjoy a generous backyard with a patio and grassy area for lounging, entertaining, and outdoor pleasure. Double wood front doors flanked by acanthus leaf brackets invite you into a gracious entry foyer, accessing the spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom owner’s garden apartment, and 3 bedroom rental upstairs for excellent monthly income. Interiors are brimming with original details including parquet floors, 10’ ceilings with chandelier crowns, tasteful archway and doorways adorned with fretwork, picture frame and rail moldings. This is met by newly renovated kitchens and updated bathrooms, as well as a full-size semi-finished lower level with inside and outside entrances. Live in the great-condition residence as it is, or reconfigure into an expansive single-family home customized to your taste. The large property also provides for additional buildable square footage and with a maximum allowable FAR of 2, the possibilities are many! Level one of the owner’s apartment offers an open living/dining/kitchen layout, perfect for entertaining, along with an outdoor patio. There’s also a full bath, walk-in closet, home office and well-proportioned bedroom. The walkout basement presents a fabulous open recreation-media-family room, kitchenette with lots of space for additional sleeping quarters, plus a full bath, walk-in closets, laundry, storage and mechanical rooms. The second-floor rental also has an open living-dining-kitchen layout, 2 full baths, a sky-lit hall, and 3 bedrooms affording versatile use of space for an office, den, etc. Best of all is the prime location, a half-block to Prospect Park, minutes from the wide variety of shops, restaurants and cafes on Church Ave and Cortelyou Road. Right nearby as well are grocery stores, conveniences, and the F and B/Q subway trains.
