One block away from Prospect Park, a refined three-floor, two-family brick home at 365 Parkside Avenue has just hit the market for $1,875,000. Built in 1901, the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens property offers loads of historic details, including coffered ceilings, oak parquet floors, three ornate decorative fireplaces, a beautiful backyard and deck, and a convenient location with easy access to Manhattan and the neighborhood’s best restaurants.
The home’s entrance brings you into a foyer and tiled mudroom with a staircase leading up to the living room. A grand stone fireplace is the centerpiece of this room, which also features high coffered ceilings, basket weave wood floors, and built-in shelving. Three south-facing bay windows let in an abundance of natural light and create a warm, relaxing atmosphere.
Wood French doors lead into the formal dining room, which is large enough for a 12-person table. More coffered ceilings, raised panel wainscotting, a ceiling medallion, and an ornate decorative fireplace set against the background of painterly floral wallpaper make this a beautiful spot for entertaining. Access to a balcony deck is through the dining room, making it really convenient to transition from indoors to outdoors when you have guests. The deck leads down to the backyard, which offers privacy and comes outfitted with a basketball hoop.
Next to the dining room is a spacious eat-in kitchen overlooking the back deck and garden below. The kitchen features large terracotta tiles on the floor and butcher block and tiled countertops. Though the white wooden cabinets are a touch outdated, they provide plenty of storage space. You’ll also find a washer and dryer in the kitchen, and access to a powder room.
Up the grand staircase in the living room, you’ll find three large bedrooms on the upper floors. A spacious and sunny master bedroom features another beautiful decorative fireplace, a generous closet,u and an en-suite renovated bathroom with updated fixtures.
The two additional bedrooms are also larger than you might expect. They each have a walk-in closet and share a bathroom with original tiles and a soaking tub.
The garden level is currently set up as a separate rental apartment, organized as an open plan studio. The home comes with private parking and is conveniently located just down the block from the Q train and lots of restaurant options.
