Welcome home to 700 East 17th Street, a single family monument and one of the most spectacular and unique homes to come to market in a very long time. Located in the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District this lovely Queen Anne style home was designed by the famed architect Benjamin Driesler in 1903. Brimming with pre-war details and groundbreaking architectural design, this home is truly the crown jewel of Brooklyn. Sitting on a highly coveted 55x100 corner lot and boasting over 3,200 square feet of living space, entertaining neighbors and guests is a breeze. As you walk inside, you are immediately greeted with opulent details reminiscent of castles in the English countryside. The wrap-around porch and landscaped surrounding gardens provide a picturesque scenery for your morning coffee. Within the home, you will notice that all of the original details have been painstakingly restored to their inaugural grandeur. Your senses will be filled with a sense of pride and delight when reveling at details such as your pier mirror, beamed ceilings, multiple fireplaces, in-laid mahogany hardwood floors and the numerous stained glass windows throughout- which have all been revived. Considerable in size, the first floor is comprised of two living rooms, a formal dining room, half bath and a massive chefs kitchen with direct views of the rear yard. Overlooking the tree-lined streets, the south facing, generously sized master en-suite bedroom features a large walk-in closet, spa like features in the bathroom and a uniquely beautiful turret. With a total of six bedrooms and three full bathrooms on the upper floors, your capacity for space is seemingly unlimited! Equipped with a fully renovated and finished basement, you can let your imagination get the best of you! Featuring a summer kitchen and private entrance, your house guests can enjoy their privacy while visiting Brooklyn. Revel in the privileged perks of Brooklyn living with a private driveway, large enough to accommodate multiple cars. Conveniently located steps away from the B/Q train station at Newkirk Plaza, you can easily commute to Manhattan or Barclays Junction where you can access multiple train lines. Advantageously located near Cortelyou Avenue, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Junction, your recreational options for nightlife and restaurants are plentiful.
