A truly remarkable home. Nestled in Prospect Park South, is this beautiful Italianate Victorian home, with notable architectural distinctions, that include an incredible tower room on its 3rd floor. Dripping with details, with 8 full bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths, this majestic home could be yours to love.
Upon entry to the house, you are greeted by a lovely library, just off to the right, with a working, wood-burning fireplace with a marble facade.The first floor further features a large living and dining room with Italianate columns, and it is perfect for entertaining. It has a full windowed EIK that melds classic and modern with a working Chambers stove from 1943. The half bath on this floor is fully renovated with waterworks tiles. The center hall stair takes you to a large landing, where you can recline and enjoy the sun-streaming through the amazing pictorial stained glass windows. Once reaching the second floor, you'll find 4 full sized bedrooms, (the master has a cedar lined closet), a lovely large bathroom plus a half bath. The third floor features a unique tower room, sized 15'2 x 18'4, plus 3 additional full sized bedrooms with cove ceilings. The renovated bath on this level has the original claw foot tub that has been lovingly restored.
The basement is almost completely finished, with a separate laundry room, and a large family room complete with a bar.
Care has been taken to ensure that this home maintained its fabulous details, which include incredible stained glass panels, marble fireplace, archways, hand carved cherubs and inlaid parquet floors, while extensive mechanical upgrades were completed. These upgrades include central AC throughout 4 floors, a new electrical system, a brand new roof which maintained the architectural uniqueness of its Yankee gutters, and it is fully insulated.
This is a truly unique property for someone wishing to live in a historic landmarked home, on one of the nicest blocks in bucolic Prospect Park South, just two blocks from all the amenities of Cortelyou Road, and a short walk to the Q train.
