Let’s take a trip to the quiet, tree-lined streets of Victorian Flatbush where a 111-year-old home in the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park landmarked historic district awaits, asking $2.275 million. This quarter-acre lot is large enough for a pool and a guesthouse or your own little secret garden. And while the curb appeal sets the bar high, the inside takes it to a new level, blending old-world charm with modern updates.
The main level of this 2,900-square-foot home has a large front porch, part of which is screened off. Inside, there’s a spacious and sunny sitting room and a living room with a bay window sitting nook. The large dining room and eat-in kitchen are perfect for entertaining. Original details include ceiling molding, pocket doors, in-laid hardwoods, and decorative fireplaces.
If you want to put your master on the second level, you’re out of luck…because you’ll have to choose between three sunny, oversized bedrooms out of the four rooms available. Or, you can just take the large master suite on the top level. This master has a large walk-in closet, a four-piece bathroom, a storage area, and two additional bedrooms. Updates include a newly shingled roof and a three-year-old boiler. Laundry facilities are in the large, clean cellar.
690 East 18th Street is right near Cortelyou Road, with Farm on Adderley, The Flatbush Food Coop, The Cortelyou Green Market, and Mimi’s Hummus. It’s also a delightful bike ride away from Prospect Park.
