Dyker Heights is best known for its lavish Christmas light displays, not surprising since the Brooklyn neighborhood is a wonderful, family-friendly enclave full of large detached homes. This brick and limestone house at 1151 83rd Street has six bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage with an additional apartment, and a large patio complete with a heated gunite swimming pool and outdoor kitchen. Plus, it’s raised above the street level, providing privacy and views. The home is on the market for $6,188,000.
Built in 1995, the home is situated on a 6,000-square-foot lot and has roughly 4,000 square feet of interior space. The lovely block is lined with large trees and other elevated homes with tons of curb appeal.
A marble foyer is the first of the opulent interiors. From there, radiant heat mahogany floors lead to the grand formal living room where 20-foot-tall ceilings boast gold leaf that was applied by an artisan who’s worked on the Plaza Hotel. Other features include an oversized carved gas fireplace, an open staircase and mezzanine, and floor-to-ceiling windows with gorgeous custom window treatments.
Also on this level are a raised formal dining room and a more casual living room that opens to the eat-in kitchen, which boasts granite countertops, custom cabinetry, a large island, and a Thermador range with a double oven.
French doors off the breakfast room open to the L-shaped patio, where the outdoor kitchen–complete with a Lynx barbecue, burner, and refrigerator–is conveniently located. In the rear, the large pool is surrounded by beautiful landscaping.
The primary bedroom suite is on the second floor. It has a custom walk-in closet and dressing area, as well as an en-suite Calacatta marble bathroom with radiant heat floors, a jetted tub, shower, and double vanity.
Also on the second floor are two secondary bedrooms, one with a balcony overlooking the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and Coney Island, the other with a Venetian plaster feature wall.
There are three more bedrooms on the third floor, as well as another large balcony.
The finished basement abuts the garage and is set up as a separate apartment. There’s a full kitchen, separate card room through glass doors, full bathroom, and laundry room.
Another nice perk of the home is heated stairs and an entryway. It’s close to Dyker Beach Park and its playgrounds, fields, and sports courts, plus the public 18-hole Dyker Beach Golf Course and the City Parks Junior Golf Center.
