To say that a single-family home is "only" $2.785 million is indeed a bit ridiculous, but in the bizarro world of Brooklyn real estate, this enormous, beautifully restored Ditmas Park Victorian doesn't seem so wildly overpriced—especially considering how thoroughly it's been redone in the past few years.
Based on the building pics, it seems this idyllic six-bedroom townhouse has come a long way since it was last on the market. According to the brokerbabbble, the Ditmas Victorian is "a versatile blank canvas," with details "carefully designed to maximize comfort and function," while also "accentuating" the house’s "beautiful form."
There is no floor plan with the listing, so it’s a little difficult to tell exactly what’s going on here. A first-floor entry vestibule adorned with an encaustic tile floor (not pictured) leads into an "ample" foyer with a wood-burning stove. There’s also bright living room, a seemingly sizable dining room, a half bath, and an absurdly nice kitchen, equipped with with marble countertops, a six burner stove, an oversized island, two separate dishwashers, and so much custom cabinetry it’s hard to know what to do with it all.
Upstairs is the master suite, complete with a windowed dressing room and a "super luxe" bath decked out with the works: a heated tub, double sinks, and yet another wall of floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry. There are also two other bedrooms, each with five windows, another full bath, and a washer/dryer hook up. The third floor, meanwhile, houses the remaining three bedrooms — should you be all set on sleeping quarters, the listing notes that one of them would make an ideal media room — and two more bathrooms. Just in case you're still feeling cramped, there is also a finished basement with a half bath.
The outdoor perks aren’t too shabby either: while the home's exterior is notably not pictured (and older photos show it looking a little rough), the place has a large deck, a backyard garden, and — arguably best of all — a subway two blocks away.
