If working from home has you dreaming of a simpler life in the suburbs, this gorgeous house in Prospect Park South could be the perfect middle ground. Just listed for $2,825,000, the 1903 Victorian at 79 Argyle Road has been completely restored and updated, boasting tons of historic charm and plenty of modern upgrades. Not only does it have seven bedrooms, but there’s a spacious alcove guest studio apartment. Other perks include an enclosed porch, stone patio, rear deck and garden, and a private two-car garage.

The house is quintessential Prospect Park South, with a large front yard, beautifully landscaped in this case, and a covered porch. Spread over 4,000 square feet, there are seven bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a two-car garage.

As mentioned, there are four wood-burning fireplaces throughout; three are on the first floor around a large, central chimney. Other historic architectural details include etched- and stained-glass windows, beamed ceilings, pocket doors, and decorative moldings. The entry foyer is so large it could easily serve as a separate seating area.

The foyer opens into the spacious main living room, as well as the kitchen. The living room is surrounded by an enclosed porch. In the kitchen, you’ll find tons of cabinet space, a full suite of appliances, and a large center island. A floor-to-ceiling wall of glass lets in tons of natural light and overlooks the rear patio.

The dining room off the kitchen is super sunny and opens to the backyard.

Back off the foyer is the guest suite, which comes complete with a kitchenette, separate den, and full bathroom. It also has its own separate entrance.

The second-floor landing is currently configured as a home office.

This level holds two bedrooms and a full bathroom, along with the massive master suite. The master not only has a huge en-suite bathroom and dressing room, but it opens to a separate study/den. Throughout are walls of built-ins, and in the bedroom, beadboard ceilings add a country feel.

On the third floor, a large central playroom opens to two more bedrooms. This space has vaulted ceilings and a full-size basketball backboard bolted to the chimney.

79 Argyle Road is just one block south of the park and is right in between the B and Q trains at both Church Avenue and Beverly Road.
