The possibilities are endless!
This lovingly restored historic Ditmas Park mansion evokes true grandeur and sophistication rarely seen in Brooklyn nowadays. Built in 1899, this magnificent 5000 SF 2-family Victorian on picturesque treelined East 17th Street is brimming with gorgeous details, fine craftsmanship and cache.
Situated on a 70 x 100 lot with old growth trees, this home has serious curb-appeal with a manicured front yard, a generous backyard you would find in a suburb, a fabulous new wrap-around porch as well as a driveway which can accommodate multiple cars. Owners upgrades include a new roof, reinforced siding, new custom oversized windows and all new mechanicals.
Currently configured as a single family home with a separate one bedroom apartment on the 1st floor, however there are alternate configurations for its new owner to consider (see architect drafted floor plans). With 5000 SF to work with, there is ample space to create two generous residences or retain as a single family and make some personal customizations to suit your lifestyle.
One of the rare and distinguishing features of this house is the central staircase, which handsomely greets you through an arched entry foyer. Other details include soaring ceiling heights, multiple wood burning fireplaces and a 350 SF garage converted into a separate ideal work-from-home office space with skylights, a ductless mini-split and surround sound!
Currently, the impressive garden level foyer leads to an immense parlor, with coffered ceilings, a gorgeous wood-burning fireplace and a sun drenched corner office. On this floor, with a private entrance around the back, is a charming one bedroom apartment. The apartment has a modern renovated kitchen and bathroom.
Upstairs the original layout is intact, with a renovated eat-in kitchen, new appliances, stone countertops and elegant cabinetry with a well designed washer-dryer nook. The formal dining-room is on the same floor, with a table that can easily seat 12. There is also a beautiful window-lined formal lounge with wood carved cabinets and another wood burning fireplace. The king-sized primary bedroom on this floor has a dreamy marble tiled bathroom en suite, and two walk-in closets.
The remodeled third floor has new hardwood flooring, three large bedrooms as well as an expansive loft-like family room, with sun streaming in, as well as a new oversized bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub.
The semi-finished basement with 8 foot ceilings has widows on both sides, a workshop, utilities area and a separate laundry room with another washer and dryer. All mechanicals have been recently updated too!
314 E 17th Street is ideally located on one of the most central blocks in all of dreamy Ditmas Park, a stones throw away from the Express Q train which gets you to Manhattan in 20 minutes!
