Updated Victorian in Ditmas Park still packs in the original details

New, 1 comment

The house, on the market for $2.4 million, last sold in 2013 for half as much


Everyone could use a mental break right now, which means the listing for this gorgeous Ditmas Park house dropped right in time. The house at 462 Westminster Street is just another example of the lovely stock of prewar houses the sleepy Brooklyn community enjoys. Located between Dorchester Road and Ditmas Avenue, the house has been recently restored and renovated, and has everything that the best historic homes offer: parquet floors with intricate inlay, an ornate original fireplace mantel, two sets of pocket doors, stained glass windows, and wainscoting.

And the house is as practical as it is decorated. For appliances, the kitchen has a six-burner Wolf cooktop, two Thermador electric ovens, and a Kitchen Aid dishwasher. Eight split-system AC’s are installed throughout the house. There’s no master suite, but floors two and three each have a full bathroom that the house’s six bedrooms share. A powder room is located off the kitchen on the ground floor.

An adorable backyard hides behind the house, alongside a two-car garage. Like its neighborhood brethren, all of this doesn’t come scot-free. The house is on the market for $2.385 million. The property last sold in 2013 for $1.1 million.
