Original details abound in this cute Brooklyn home

On a street filled with otherwise unassuming brick townhouses, the one at 235 East 4th Street stands out—thanks, in no small part, to the decorative cornice perched atop the facade. That quirky decorative element, along with the front porch, gives this home plenty of curb appeal.

But there’s also a lot to like inside: The house dates back to the turn of the 20th century, and there are plenty of vintage details in place, including stained glass windows, parquet floors, and a large pier mirror that dominates one of the walls. The first floor is quite a formal space, with two parlors (which are separated by stately columns) and a dining room that has coffered ceilings. The kitchen is more casual, and it leads out to the expansive back garden.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including a master with a bay window and plenty of closet space. The house has two bathrooms and a large basement, which comes with a laundry hookup.

It may not be as grand as some of the other grand Victorian homes found throughout the Ditmas Park/Kensington area, but it also comes at a lower price: The home is asking $1.5 million. It’s listed with Compass’s Lisa Garcia.
