Another day, another lovely detached Ditmas Park house has hit the market: This particular home, situated on Westminster Road between Beverley and Cortelyou roads, is a circa-1900 structure that’s asking $2.1 million.

Though it could be used as a two-family home, it’s currently in a single-family configuration, according to the listing. It sits on a positively huge plot of land, with enough room for a two-car garage, an expansive backyard (with a deck and a patio), and a sweet front porch overlooking the front yard.

While it’s not as obviously inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement as some of the neighborhood’s other homes, this house does have some of those elements, including wainscoting in the living and dining rooms, and a lovely wooden staircase. The first floor has those two rooms, along with a bright eat-in kitchen; the second and third floors are given over to the bedrooms, including a master suite with a walk-in closet.

The house at 251 Westminster Road is listed for $2.1 million with Compass’s Carolyn Cedar.
