'Tis definitely not the season to think about floating around in a chlorinated tub surrounded by lush flora... but that's what this new-to-market Brooklyn house makes us want to do. (Because a 2,000-square-foot backyard with a heated pool, hot tub, and waterfall just sound so good right about now.) Wedged in between Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst, the neighborhood of Dyker Heights is best known for its over-the-top Christmas-light displays. Just imagine how this six-bedroom, five-bath homewith a lovely kitchen featuring a stained-glass light fixture and a brick hearth surrounding the rangewould look absolutely covered in LED lights. Or, if the buyer doesn't swing that way, then bathed in their reflective glow. A house for all seasons, this is; it wants $6.45 million.
