Stately Storybook Revival Home
This 1925 French Normandy revival home with hand timbered detail sits on an approximate lot of 14,685 square feet & has a pool that overlooks the open space of the Arroyo Seco. Having no rear neighbor maximizes privacy, & is rare among the unique collection of homes in the Prospect Park district.
Replete with abundant period details, this 4 bed 4 bath home offers storybook curb appeal with a steep pitched roof, a capped entry turret & dramatic common rooms. The checkerboard entry foyer leads to an over-sized living room with soaring, open truss beamed ceilings, a carved stone fireplace & French doors leading to the patios. The central stairway is framed by sturdy decorative wrought iron railings & an original telephone room is tucked away on the lower landing. The formal dining room & breakfast room lead to a beautifully appointed chef’s kitchen with custom cabinets, counter tops & high-end appliances. A period maid’s quarters can be found beyond the kitchen. A downstairs family room offers a wet bar and a full bath servicing the adjacent pool area.
Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms & 2 baths. The master bedroom opens to a private rooftop terrace with panoramic views & the master bath has been updated in a subtle palette. A massive stand-up attic tops it off.
