Experience unparalleled luxury living in this whimsical single-family Victorian masterpiece nestled in the magnificent neighborhood of Prospect Park South. Steeped in history, 215 Marlborough Road was originally built in 1901 for Dean Alvord, the developer of Prospect Park South, meticulously chosen for its ideal location and natural light. Designed by renowned architect John J. Petit, this home remains a cherished gem in Prospect Park South to this day. The neighborhood itself was envisioned as a serene retreat within the bustling city, embodying the concept of "rus in urbe" – the countryside within the city. It stands as an exclusive enclave in the heart of Brooklyn, and is one of the few neighborhoods in New York to be found on the National Register of Historic Places. Impeccably maintained by devoted owners, this turnkey home exudes the charm of a storybook dream house with its steeply pitched roof, gothic arches, and ornate brackets. Professionally landscaped gardens envelop the property, enhancing its enchanting ambiance. Step inside to discover a spacious living room adorned with leaded and stained glass cabinets and accents, complemented by meticulously preserved woodwork. Central AC ensures comfort year-round, while a working gas fireplace adds warmth and character. A grand side porch with new Brazilian mahogany flooring extends the main floor, offering a serene sanctuary. The eat-in kitchen features a massive Garland range and seamlessly opens onto the picturesque rear deck, perfect for indoor-outdoor entertaining. A sun-filled dining room showcases original leaded glass built-ins, with a convenient powder room nearby. Upstairs, a decorative carved staircase leads to five bedrooms plus a home office, accompanied by a full bath. The primary bedroom boasts original twin marble-topped vanities and a private enclosed porch spanning the house's width. The finished basement provides additional versatility with a full bath, cozy guest bedroom, deluxe laundry room, expansive play space, and ample storage. Outside, a spacious deck overlooks a lush lawn and garden, with a play area and swings for the entire family. A secret door that allows little ones to watch the Q train go by below adds to the fun of this charming space. No more looking for parking when you come home: there is a two car garage equipped with storage, and five car driveway as well. Located near Brooklyn's beloved Prospect Park, Cortelyou Road's vibrant dining and shopping options, and just moments from the Q train offering a quick commute to Manhattan, this home offers unparalleled convenience and luxury in one of Brooklyn's most prestigious neighborhoods.
