Nestled into the leafy Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park historic district in the heart of Victorian Flatbush, this recently renovated two-story three/four bedroom home built in 1930 is the kind of special property that rarely comes on the market. Located on East 17th Street, which is graced by a park-like grassy center meridian lined with tall majestic oak trees, the house has a multitude of fantastic features: a lush, beautifully landscaped front yard, a long multi-car driveway bordered by azaleas, wisteria, roses, and clown flowers, a decked backyard with abundant plantings, a charming bricked entry porch with a built-in bench, lots of historical details, central air, a wood-burning fireplace, and so much more. This house is a truly exceptional must-see.

Enter into a gracious foyer beyond which is an enormous, light-filled formal dining room with windows galore. Pass through elegant glass French doors to the vast welcoming living room that can also be accessed from the foyer. The living room boasts a fireplace and mantle that is flanked by windows and original built-in cabinets with lovely leaded glass doors. Two sets of French doors off of this space lead to a large multi-purpose room that is surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling windows. It has exposed brick, a charming wooden beadboard ceiling, and two huge skylights. Make this lovely room an office, a den, a family room, a game room, or a pleasant fourth bedroom for guests-there are countless possibilities for this unique and charming space.

Also on the ground floor is a big, bright, homey recently renovated kitchen that has custom cabinetry, an eat-at peninsula, quartz countertops, a Kraus undermount sink with a window above it, a Bosch dishwasher, a microwave cubby, a recessed fridge, a Frigidaire Professional Series range, lovely brass pendant lights, lots of storage and counterspace, plus a shelved pantry closet. Sun pours in through the wide sliding glass doors that open onto a u-shaped decked yard that is bursting with flowers and plants including roses, rhododendrons, hostas, hydrangeas, peonies, and a cherry blossom tree that yields delicious sour cherries that are excellent for baking. A charming powder room completes this level.

A windowed staircase with a landing leads from the foyer to the second floor, where there are three bedrooms-each with two exposures-and two baths. The sunny, oversized primary bedroom has a luxurious recently renovated ensuite corner bathroom that has a large glassed-in shower, a wall-mounted Toto toilet, and two big windows. Along one wall of this bedroom there is an enviably massive custom built-in closet with bi-fold doors.

The other two bedrooms are large and sunny with inset-mirror doors and deep closets. One of these rooms has a skylight and a splendid cherry blossom tree outside the window. A full bathroom on the hallway, also recently renovated, has a window, a long double-sink vanity, and a wall-mounted Toto toilet. Off the hallway is a deep linen closet and an additional closet that is plumbed and vented for a washer/dryer.

The partly finished basement-equipped with a large pantry area right at the bottom of the stairs-is divided into four large rooms: a finished family room, a laundry room with a washer/dryer, and two multi-purpose rooms either of which could function as a music room, workshop, or a fitness room.

Although this house feels like it's in the country, it has access to all the conveniences of Brooklyn, including the B express train, the Q train and the many shops, cafes, and services of Foster and Newkirk Avenues such as Milk and Honey, Coffee Mob, Ox Tavern, Wattli, Westwood, Lo Duca Pizza, and Rusty Nail. It's also a short distance from Cortelyou Road amenities and year-round farmer's market as well as Prospect Park.
