It’s hard not to fall in love with this freestanding Victorian at 770 Rugby Road in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. The house has had the same owner for more than 50 years, and only a few owners since it was built in 1905. The interior is chock full of well-kept period details, not to mention a grassy lawn and a front porch. Are you falling as hard as we are? It’s on the market now for $2.195 million.
From the grand center staircase to the incredible stained glass, the interior is impressive indeed. Other details include the original parquet flooring, fireplaces, decorative mantels and period woodwork. There are three whole floors of all that good stuff!
The kitchen might just be the most charming room of the house, with its vintage stove, exposed brick wall, and fun collection of antique cooking tools and hardware serving as wall art.
The master bedroom has less wood but is no less lovely, with a sitting room and plenty of big windows. From there, you can look down on your beautiful, suburban-like lawn and garden…
The freestanding homes and expansive lawns of Ditmas Park will transport you right out of New York City–this is truly one of the most unique neighborhoods in Brooklyn. And you can enjoy all the charm of the neighborhood right from your front porch. Is there any better way to live in the city?
