In a part of Brooklyn that’s filled with charming, historic single-family homes, this particular dwelling on East 24th Street stands out.

The Dutch Colonial-style house, which dates back to 1915 (per the listing), has plenty of curb appeal: Like many other places in nearby Ditmas Park and Prospect Park South, this South Midwood home has a sweet little porch, as well as nicely preserved architectural details like columns and a gambrel roof.

Inside, however, is a different story; the structure was gut renovated, with custom finishes, new windows, updated HVAC systems, smart home features, a stylish winding staircase, and a quite swanky kitchen (with a muted gray color palette and high-end appliances) all part of the package. The house has five bedrooms, including a large master suite on the second floor with a walk-in closet and balcony that overlooks the backyard.

The house sits on a pretty large lot with both a small front lawn and an expansive backyard; there’s also a garage, and it has a finished basement.

The house at 649 East 24th Street is listed for $2.26 million with Scott Savory of Compass.
