Nestled on a sprawling 7,500 sq. ft. corner lot in the Prospect Park South historic district, 228 Marlborough is a palatial 7-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house that blends a thoughtful floorplan with a host of charming period details. Features of this 3,662 sq. ft. home include original hardwood and parquet floors, a covered wraparound porch with Doric columns, wainscoting, crown molding and intricate ceiling medallions, custom built-ins, dormer and bay windows, a trio of wood-burning fireplaces, gorgeous chandeliers and wall sconces, a solarium, a convenient laundry chute that runs throughout the first and second floors, a detached 2-car garage, a security system, manicured outdoor spaces with in-ground sprinklers, gas heating, and an above-ground heated pool. Additionally, as part of the Prospect Park Association, owners of the home have exclusive access to a nightly security watch and sidewalk maintenance throughout the spring and winter.

The home opens into an elegant foyer and sitting room adorned with a fireplace and then flows into a bright living area that looks out onto the front porch. A formal dining room lies just beyond a pair of sliding pocket doors. It boasts an attached solarium, a fireplace, and easy access to a butler’s pantry/wet bar that leads into a huge eat-in kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with an eat-in island, a breakfast nook, and a stainless steel Wolf oven inlaid in a brick surround. A powder room beneath the staircase completes the main floor.

The second floor of the home contains a quartet of large bedrooms. The master bedroom possesses a gorgeous bay window with built-in seating, a walk-in closet, and a windowed en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub. The second bedroom features a wood-burning fireplace while the third and fourth bedrooms each have large closets. All three share access to a large full bathroom with a stained glass window, subway tiled walls, and a free-standing bathtub.

The attic/loft boats four additional rooms that are perfect for use as bedrooms, workspaces/offices, or additional storage. Three of the rooms have private closets and all share access to a windowed full bathroom with subway tiled walls and a free-standing claw foot bathtub. The finished basement contains a spacious laundry room and a large wine cellar.

228 Marlborough Road is just over a block away from all the restaurants, cafes, and shops that line Cortelyou Road, and is only three blocks from Prospect Park. The Q train is just around the corner.
