Ditmas Park is well known for its stock of stunning Victorian architecture, but the homes of the neighborhood’s small planned community of Fiske Terrace might take the cake. Example: This new-to-market Victorian home, which maintains tons of original details but has been updated for modern living (think new kitchen, heated driveway, and heated floors in the full bathrooms.)
The house at 776 East 17th Street sits on an elevated corner lot and dates to 1907. The home’s original details, like mahogany woodwork and stained glass windows, have been maintained. The kitchen has been updated, but still includes finishes of eras past, like a tin ceiling. A breakfast banquette offers up a different place to eat than the main floor’s formal dining room.
Four of the house’s six bedrooms are found on the second floor, where there’s also a full bathroom with two stained glass windows and a free-standing tub. The master bedroom, on the third floor, has cathedral ceilings. A laundry room and full bath can also be found on the third floor.
The house is on the market for $2.495 million with Andrea Chrem, Jennifer Lee, and Allie Tessitorie of Citi Habitats.
