This stunning home has everything you could possibly want from a Ditmas Park Victorian: sprawling, standalone, and full of original details such asparquet floors, stained glass, French doors, built-ins, a sun porch, and even a Jardin à la Française out back. Located within the neighborhood’s eight-block historic district, 485 East 17th Street is asking $2.995 million for its three stories of well-maintained space.
The single-family home has six bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths with a cumulative 15 rooms. The first floor has not one but two generous living rooms, an even larger dining room, the kitchen and the long, narrow foyer.
Outside, there’s a driveway, one-car garage, front and back yards, and three porches – an entrance porch wraps around into an enclosed sun porch and there’s a smaller deck in the rear.
The upper levels contain the bedrooms and bathrooms, with a large dressing room prime to be converted to a home office on the third floor, as well as attic storage. The finished basement has a laundry room, utility room, terrazzo-floored recreation room and storage.
Other highlights include a washer-dryer and vintage pool table in the basement, custom painted wood cabinetry and luxe utilities in the kitchen, a freshly renovated powder room, marble shaving sink, and two ensuite baths.
The home is a quick walk from the Newkirk Plaza B and Q express station, with all the commercial offerings of Flatbush Avenue just a few blocks to the east, and the bites and bars of Cortelyou Avenue two streets north. Prospect Park is within walking distance, and what with a designated parking space, the borough is any homeowner with a car’s oyster.
