This freestanding Victorian, built in 1860, was actually dubbed “the neighborhood’s most charming house” by the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper. Located at 211 Vanderbilt Street, in Windsor Terrace, it is still clad with cedar clapboard and fronted by a covered porch. The fully detached home is also set back from the street, offering the rare front lawn, plus a side walkway that leads to a truly massive backyard. Although the interior has mostly been upgraded, it still holds a few historic surprises. It is plenty charming, but you’ll have to judge for yourself if the home deserves the title of most charming in all of Windsor Terrace.
