235 Stratford Road, Ditmas Park, Brooklyn

The Brooklyn neighborhood of Ditmas Park is known for its freestanding houses and expansive front yards. It’s a lot more like suburbia than New York City, but that’s why so many people love the area. This home at 235 Stratford Road has some amazing green spaces to show off–a lush front yard that’s literally overflowing with plants, a wraparound porch, a sunroom, a patio, a grassy backyard and a garage that’s been converted to an artist studio. We officially declare this home the best place to enjoy this summer in New York. Now, you just need $2.55 million to buy it.

David H. Sherman, Benita Welch, 28 Waldorf Court, Victorian Flatbush, Ditmas Park real estate

We have a feeling well-known architects David H. Sherman, of Abelow Sherman Architects, and his wife Benita Welch, a Principal at Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects, will give the interior of their new home a fresh coat of paint before settling in…that is, unless they like the current bubble-gum-pink color scheme.

It makes perfect sense that the couple picked up this Victorian house in Ditmas Park for themselves and their two children, as Benita specializes in restoring historic homes, and David is known for his expertise working with NYC townhouses. According to city records filed today, they purchased 28 Waldorf Court for $1.41 million. Located just off Rugby Road (often considered the heart of Victorian Flatbush) on a highly desirable cul-de-sac, the five-bedroom home has been in the same family for 30 years.

454 Rugby Road, Victorian Flatbush, Ditmas Park real estate, NYC Victorian houses

We tend to feature a lot of historic townhouses, and while we love these brownstone beauties, it’s always a treat when we come across the less-common Victorian home. Not surprisingly, this charming, free-standing house is located in Ditmas Park West, part of what is known as Victorian Flatbush. Built in 1905, the home at 454 Rugby Road recently sold for $1,975,000 million according to city records, almost $100,000 above the asking price and not far behind another recent Rugby Road sale that was one of the most expensive in the neighborhood to date.
