In addition to being an enchanting single-family home with a big front porch and a garage, this Ditmas Park house at 516 Rugby Road has the fun history of being the home of “Futurama” star Philip J. Fry (h/t Curbed). The seven-bedroom house was the childhood home of one of the popular cartoon’s writers, Eric Kaplan. The well-preserved 1905 Brooklyn home is asking $2.195 million.
Located on the lovely tree-lined urban-tranquil streets of Victorian Flatbush, this seven-bedroom home boasts details like leaded glass pocket doors, stained glass and parquet floors. The listing images have been staged to help your imagination along, but the unfurnished equivalents (see gallery, below) have plenty of charm and potential.
You’ll find original wainscoting in the entry foyer leading to a huge living room with a charming bay window seat overlooking the street. A separate dining room and an eat-in in kitchen are also on the first floor. Off the kitchen is a back porch, a shared driveway and a that coveted city bonus: a garage.
On the second floor are four large bedrooms and a full bath.
One flight up are three bedrooms and another bath. The basement offers even more space with a high enough ceiling to make good use of it; the home’s boiler and hot water heater have recently been replaced.
