It was just a week ago that we wrote about a lovely 112-year-old mansion in the Fiske Terrace historic district, a small, landmarked enclave within the larger Ditmas Park neighborhood. That house, a well-preserved six-bedroom, is asking $2.1 million, which isn’t an unusually high price for the area—and if you need proof, look no further than the home at 44 Waldorf Court, just around the corner and asking $1.9 million.
This particular home is a “remarkably intact” Colonial Revival mansion (per the Landmarks Preservation Commission), with six bedrooms, just two bathrooms, and a garage, along with a rather huge lot thanks to its location at the end of a cul-de-sac.
It’s also got plenty of curb appeal: Like many of Ditmas Park’s beautiful old houses, this one has an enormous front porch; what makes it unique is that it’s enclosed, providing a bit of privacy.
And like many Ditmas Park mansions, the interiors are lovely—with original elements like pocket doors, wooden molding, and beautiful inlaid floors—but could use some updating. The kitchen, in particular, has a bit of a vintage vibe (and not necessarily in a good way), but it’s nothing that can’t be easily fixed.
Jennifer Lee and Allie Tessitore at Citi Habitats have the listing.
