The six-bedroom urban oasis comes with a backyard, an enclosed porch, and carriage house

Via Brooklyn Hearth Realty

This 1907 stunner is billed as “an oasis in the city”—and based on the pictures, that seems like a pretty accurate description. Designed by Arlington Isham just after the turn of the century, this Simplified Free Colonial six-bedroom home is a $3 million Brooklyn dream.

The first floor houses the bulk of the communal spaces: an open parlor with coffered ceilings, enormous windows, and a “built-in window seat perfect for a grand piano;” a light-filled dining room with a decorative fireplace and stained glass windows; an updated black-and-white eat-in kitchen complete with a handy butlers pantry; and, arguably best of all, an enormous wrap-around porch, conveniently enclosed for “three seasons of enjoyment and entertaining.” True!

The second floor has three of the six bedrooms, including the master suite, which itself boasts five windows and a palatial bathroom with a soaking tub, a separate shower, and views of the property’s century-old cherry tree. There’s also a sweet sleeping porch, ideal for warmer-weather dozing. The rest of the bedrooms are one story up, on the third floor, which also offers “extensive” storage space. The basement, meanwhile, comes with even more storage space, plus laundry, for a more civilized existence.

As for the outdoor spaces, they are also nice, and include a private backyard with a carriage house. To top it all off, there is parking. Rebekah Carver at Brooklyn Hearth Realty has the listing.
