One look at this unassuming wood home and you might find yourself rubbing your eyes, but rest assured this charming little cabin is indeed located in Brooklyn. Said to be the former “vacation home” of a wealthy 19th century Brooklyn Heights family, this 1800s construction has just been put on the market for $1.249 million. Interestingly, its 658 Vanderbilt Street locale in Windsor Terrace hasn’t always been its address. The home was previously sited, oddly enough, in the middle of Prospect Park.
Although the bungalow home looks quite demure, it’s actually pretty sizable at 15 feet by 60 feet with three bedrooms, vaulted ceilings, enough space for two cars, a landscaped yard, a living room with a skylight and an eat-in kitchen. The listing also notes that the property comes with enough FAR to knock the building down and build anew, three stories high.
Location-wise, the house is quite well-situated, a half-block from Prospect Park, and just a short block from the F train. There’s also a bus steps away that will bring you to Brighton Beach.
Not a bad offer, but is it worth a million-plus?
