Welcome to 1780 Brooklyn Avenue, a sprawling 4000 square feet fully detached home situated on a 58 x 100 foot lot. As you enter this historic two-family house, you'll be greeted by its charm and character, complete with a two-car garage and private driveway. With four exposures and 62 windows, sunlight floods every corner, highlighting the original period details including arched entryways, wainscotting, stained glass, and inlaid floors in each room. Noteworthy is the castle-like turret that spans the entire height of the house, with views overlooking the leafy front yard. Its octagonal design allows light to stream in from three sides, creating intimate nook-style rooms throughout the interior. Additionally, there's an unfinished basement spanning 1370 sq ft, featuring small windows that welcome natural light Built in the 1920s, this Gothic Revival gem has been owned by the same family since 1975. The main floor thoughtfully unfolds across the living room, dining room, office, and an updated kitchen including a brand new dishwasher. Adjacent to the kitchen, a second staircase provides convenient access to both the second and third floors, and there is an entrance to the sprawling basement below. The dining area exudes elegance with its original wood wainscoting, complemented by pocket doors that afford privacy from the adjoining living area. The convenience of four separate entrances, including one from the driveway to the kitchen, adds to the overall functionality of the home. On the second floor, you'll find generously proportioned rooms complete with original built-ins. The cozy landing area with a storage bench acts as a tranquil spot overlooking the front garden, shaded by majestic hundred-year-old trees. The third floor boasts its own kitchen and private entrance, making it ideal for use as a separate apartment. Diamond-shaped lattice windows, reminiscent of Gothic architecture, adorn this floor, adding character throughout. Outside, the expansive front yard offers ample space for relaxation, while the two-car garage and two-car private driveway provide convenient parking options. Never think about alternate side parking again! Situated in a "country in the city" neighborhood, with easy access to Manhattan, Downtown Brooklyn, as well as to the seaside in the opposite direction, this home offers the best of both worlds. You are steps away from the 2 train and the B41 bus which goes down Flatbush Avenue. There is Flatbush Junction with HomeGoods, Target, and a Nike outlet store. This home can also be a development site with an unused FAR of 3910 and the potential to build up to 7000 sq ft. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history!
