Nestled between an impressive array of architecturally significant homes, on arguably THE BEST block in Historic Ditmas Park, this stunning 7 bedroom, 3 full and 2 half bath Victorian jewel embodies the coveted combination of beautifully preserved original detail with the most thoughtful modern improvements. Everything about this home is an absolute dream for family life and gatherings. The gracious wrap around front porch, a respite between the outside and inside to relax with friends and engage with neighbors, welcomes you into the home.Stepping into the generous entry foyer you will be awe struck by the inviting open plan of the sprawling Parlor floor that is a showcase of magnificent original detail including a decorative mantel and Inglenook, an extra wide, grand staircase, stained glass, leaded glass built-ins, pocket doors, multi-patterned parquet floors, coffered ceilings, wainscoting and more! Lofty, 10' foot ceilings enhance the feeling of open space and windows on every wall flood the rooms with natural light while affording a lovely connection to the outdoors. Two large living rooms on opposite corners offer lovely flexibility in how to utilize the space and connect to the dining room and kitchen.Under the stair is a charming, windowed half bath with whimsical spanish tile floors.The enchanting formal dining room with a bay of 5 windows can accommodate a table that seats 12 or more and flows seamlessly into a TRUE chef's kitchen. Designed and equipped to satisfy the needs of a professional chef, or regular folk who have a hankering to cook at that level, every detail of this beautifully appointed eat-in kitchen was carefully thought out. Endless storage options include the abundant upper and lower painted wood cabinetry, custom Oak and Maple built-ins AND a Butlers Pantry pass through to the dining room with more storage! Luxurious Kitchen finishes include long stretches of Stainless Steel and Quartz countertops with an integrated dish drainer, marble tile backsplash and an apron sink with a garbage disposal. The top of the line appliance suite includes a 6 burner Wolf range with restaurant grade Salamander and exhaust hood AND a Miele convection oven, LG double door refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. If it is dining al fresco or outdoor gatherings you crave, step out to your huge backyard that has a big, grassy area for cultivating your green thumb (the images of flowers are all from the front and back garden!) and a bigger paved area with a full outdoor kitchen complete with a Weber grill, mini fridge and sink. On the second floor is a gracious landing with 4 huge, sun drenched bedrooms. The Primary has an ensuite bath and two walk-in closets. Luscious bath finishes include a glass enclosed shower, pedestal sink, sea glass tile and a claw foot soaking tub. Two of the three remaining bedrooms share a bath with a glass enclosed shower/tub combo and a marble top vanity. On the third floor are an additional three large bedrooms, a large attic storage area and another full bath with a shower/tub combo. All bedrooms have Split AC units. The finished basement is a bonus additional living space that's currently used as a rec room/gym and has a workshop, laundry room and great additional storage space. The driveway and one car garage can accommodate three cars! All of this in close proximity to the great shopping and restaurants of Cortelyou Rd, Newkirk & Foster Ave's and the B & Q Trains to Manhattan!
