A fully-renovated freestanding home with a private driveway and backyard is ready to make your Victorian dreams come true. Asking $3,125,000, the six-bedroom 110-year-old residence in Ditmas Park offers original details architecture buffs love, like woodwork and stained glass, while a renovation makes the house functional for today. Located at 477 East 16th Street, the house sits on a historic tree-lined street that feels like a suburban enclave but is just two blocks from the nearest subway station.
Like any Victorian home, the property, which was built in 1910, has a lovely, wide front porch that wraps around the front of the home. In total, the freestanding home contains six bedrooms, four full baths, and two powder rooms across three levels. There’s also a private driveway.
Measuring more than 3,600 square feet, the property offers more than enough space to mold into a dream home. The main level is currently set up with multiple living areas, including a huge front room that overlooks the front porch, a spacious den, and a dining room with a wood-burning fireplace.
At the rear of the parlor floor is the huge eat-in kitchen, nice and bright thanks to natural light and soft materials used. The renovated space includes custom cabinets, a sleek center island, marble countertops, and open shelving. And there’s plenty of space for another dining table or breakfast nook.
A door leads from the kitchen to the back deck, and down to the landscaped backyard.
On your way up to the second and third floors, stop and admire the beautiful stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings.
On the top two floors, you’ll find all six bedrooms. The primary suite features a large dressing room, a full bath with his-and-her sinks, and south-facing views. In addition to the bedrooms, these floors have a washer-dryer and attic storage.
Surrounded by trees, the backyard is a quiet retreat with a garden and a spacious deck. Another New York City rarity, the home even has a finished basement and a shed.
