The Brooklyn neighborhood of Ditmas Park is known for its freestanding houses and expansive front yards. It’s a lot more like suburbia than New York City, but that’s why so many people love the area. This home at 235 Stratford Road has some amazing green spaces to show off–a lush front yard that’s literally overflowing with plants, a wraparound porch, a sunroom, a patio, a grassy backyard and a garage that’s been converted to an artist studio. We officially declare this home the best place to enjoy this summer in New York. Now, you just need $2.55 million to buy it.
Although the interior doesn’t have as many extravagant details as many of the other historic homes in Ditmas Park, it’s still well maintained with a modern touch. In the living room, for example, a modern fireplace is paired with the original parquet floors. There’s also a striking oak stairway in the entryway that leads up to stained glass windows.
The kitchen, which looks out onto the garden, has hemlock floors, exposed ceiling beams and custom blue cabinetry. This looks more like a country kitchen than a New York City one.
There is also plenty of space and plenty of windows. You’ve got five total bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,700 square feet. The master bedroom, located on the third floor of the home, has cathedral ceilings, six skylights, six windows, a wet bar, wine fridge and alcove for a home office.
And now on to the backyard! Doesn’t that look like a nice place to relax this summer? The artist studio is tucked into the very back of all that greenery. According to the listing, it’s a heated studio with cathedral ceilings, skylights, windows and a huge glass wall.
