Prospect Park South is a neighborhood dominated by historic, freestanding homes, transporting you to a suburbia of New York City. One of those stunning homes at 171 Marlborough Road has just hit the market for $3.25 million. Some locals may know this home as the local Poulet Palace–the backyard’s big enough to run a chicken coop. But a peek inside reveals impressive architectural details that include millwork, trims, moldings, columns and decorative balusters. The restored leaded and stained glass is the showpiece of the home, with a unique arched passageway from the dining room to the magical rear porch.
With one look at this house you can immediately see the harmony at work between modern and traditional. Only a modern house would dare to be coated in a color so striking. However, the Victorian features of this Babylon, NY home elevate it from merely striking to sophisticated and chic. This 3,956-square-foot Babylon Victorian (h/t CIRCA) is perfect for the person who loves old world charm with modern conveniences (and who has $1.3 million to spend).
