In June of last year the Albemarle Road buzz reached public ears when Michelle Williams purchased a $2.5 million Colonial Revival mansion on the Prospect Park South Historic District mansion row; in August, 6sqft reported that the extraordinary and storied 23-room mansion across the street at number 1305, listed at a neighborhood record-setting $2.98 million, had entered contract just two hours after it officially hit the market. Now, about five blocks to the west, a lovely and historic seven-bedroom home at 916 Albemarle Road is asking $2.249 million.
Like its neighbors, this 3,886-square-foot home has all the conveniences of country and suburban living (mud room, garage, basement and porches, terraces and patios galore) in the historic townhouse neighborhood a block from Prospect Park and a quick stroll from the B/Q subway lines; it’s not hard so see why smitten buyers keep coming.
In addition to a mudroom entry, the home’s parlor floor offers a living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen and powder room. We’ll assume from the photos that the home is in better shape than Michelle Williams’ grand fixer upper; the kitchen isn’t pictured, though the listing says it’s outfitted with stainless steel appliances, an office nook, lots of storage and an island. Also in the house: a “basement of unlimited potential,” which currently offers laundry and a half bath, both pretty promising as it is.
The free-standing home gets light from four exposures; upstairs, seven lofty bedrooms have abundant closets and use of two full baths.
The single family home occupies a 6,000-square-foot lot, so you’re surrounded by private outdoor space that includes a wrap-around front terrace, a back terrace and a private patio. The home’s enclosed backyard features a koi pond and a garden with as least as much potential as the aforementioned basement.
