Price: $2,495,000
Location: Ditmas Park, Brooklyn

Built in 1930, this Victorian house at 241 Stratford Road isn’t part of any of the nearby historic districts, but its architectural style and tree-lined surroundings are consistent with Ditmas Park’s characterful suburban vibe. The home is walking distance to the southern tip of Prospect Park and just up the block from the Cortelyou Road thoroughfare, which has restaurants like Purple Yam, the Farm on Adderley, and Mimi’s Hummus, plus Cortelyou Greenmarket, a Sunday farmers’ market. The property comes with a driveway and detached garage, and the closest subway stop is the Q at Beverley Road.

Specs: 4 beds, 1.5 baths, 2,600 square feet, 0.11 acres

The home’s soothing façade combines eggshell-colored panels with sage-green roof trimming and stairs, which lead up to the wraparound porch with a swing. Inside, you’ll find extensive oak woodwork, including a built-in bench, several fireplaces, and stained-glass windows. The updated kitchen features colorful mosaic tile floors, stainless-steel appliances, and an adjacent deck opening to the backyard. All four bedrooms are on the second floor, while the third floor offers a vaulted space that can be used as an artist’s studio or home office.
