Just under $3 million may seem steep for a house in Prospect Park South, but–in addition to being three blocks from the park–this beautifully preserved 1901 townhouse at 214 Marlborough Road is likely someone’s Victorian Flatbush dream come true. The rambling and colorful home was designed by Benjamin Dreisler, who was among the area’s most prominent architects of the day. Nearly 4,000 square feet provides room for seven bedrooms and grand living spaces, and there’s a finished basement in addition. The home’s millwork and moldings are among the neighborhood’s finest–and in this neighborhood that’s saying a lot.

Entering through an impressive pair of doors enhanced with leaded glass you’ll find a gracious foyer with high ceilings and pocket doors on either side. On one side is an enormous living room with stained glass windows and a fireplace.

On the opposite side of the foyer is an elegant sitting room with bay windows. Next, a dining room coffered ceilings await grand-scale entertaining plans.

The property’s original staircase winds up to the second floor, where you’ll find the master bedroom, ensuite bath and a dream dressing room with California Closets. Also here are two guest bedrooms and another full bath.

The third floor offers two more bedrooms, one of which spans the entire width of the home. There’s another bath as well as an office that could easily become a seventh bedroom. As if this wasn’t enough space, a fully finished basement holds a home office, recreation area, and wet bar.

In addition to the Parade Grounds being just a few blocks away, you’re only one block from the cafes, shops, and restaurants of Cortelyou Road and steps from the B/Q subway stop.
