$3M home in the urban suburb of Prospect Park South is a freestanding beauty

May 3, 2017

Want to live in a gorgeous suburban enclave that’s attracted the likes of Michelle Williams? Then look no further than Prospect Park South, a neighborhood designed, as developer Dean Alford put it, to “illustrate how much natural beauty can be incorporated within the rectangular limits of the city.” The landscaping and the homes have remained intact since this area was constructed more than 100 years ago, including this home built in 1907. Designed by the architect Arlington Isham, it’s a Simplified Free Colonial style house with an enclosed porch and plenty of period details. For this escape into the finer pastures of Brooklyn, it will cost a cool $3 million.

The open parlor has coffered ceilings, extra wide windows, a wood burning fireplace and built-in window seating that now accommodates a grand piano. Three pocket doors separate the formal parlor from the living and dining areas.

The living room, which opens to the parlor and dining rooms, has two exposures and parquet floors. The dining room boasts period stained glass, a decorative fireplace, coffered ceilings and wood paneling. Not much has changed since 1907!

The kitchen, however, has been upgraded with granite counter tops, stainless appliances and a built-in pantry (we love the retro ceiling tiles and table). A door from here leads to the backyard.

In total, the home boast 17 total rooms over 4,103 square feet. Upstairs, a few of the six bedrooms are being used as a den or office spaces.

The master bedroom has five windows that look out over a 100-year-old cherry tree. It’s attached to an impressive ensuite bathroom with a separate shower and soaking tub.

A bedroom on the second floor of the home also boasts its very own “sleeping porch.”

The outdoor space that comes with this home in unbeatable. There’s an enclosed front porch–perfect for all weathers–that wraps around the front of the house.

The private backyard holds a carriage house, plus parking. Are you ready to move to Prospect Park South yet? This stunning home is located one block from the Prospect Park Parade Grounds and five blocks from the Church Avenue B/Q train.
