On a beautiful tree-lined block, this grand historic home, located in the prized Prospect Heights Historic District (designated by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2009), is one of three brick Row houses built circa 1901. Owned by the same family for over 50 years, this four-story home is ready for its new owner.
The spacious building is almost 21 feet wide, with a 20.83 x 43' footprint on an atypically deep 131 ft lot. There is a large front courtyard, historic wood door, original cornice, and a full-height angular bay adorned with terra-cotta moldings. The spacious home is a full 3,400 square feet of interior space, not including the basement, with allowances to extend or build an additional 2,183 square feet if desired.
The ground/garden level was recently renovated and has the eat-in kitchen in the rear of the house and a large private fenced garden that provides peaceful enjoyment for relaxing and entertaining Outdoors. The parlor level has impressive 11+ ft high ceilings and is currently configured with the kitchen overlooking the garden and the bedroom in the front parlor. The third floor has beautiful arched moldings and is set up as two bedrooms separated by a wet bar, while the fourth floor has a kitchen, a full bath, and three rooms, including an office or nursery space. The expansive basement, which extends the full footprint of the building, can easily be used as additional storage.
The family has lovingly maintained the home and preserved its special details; however, updating is required to create a custom dream home that melds history with modern style. Currently, the family lives in the house on separate floors that can easily open up and combine into an owner's triplex over a garden rental. Live in the garden rental and transform the upper three floors into the home of your dreams, or create an owner's duplex with two rental units. The possibilities are endless.
A beautiful reflection of the Neo Grec and Queene Anne style, 200 Prospect Place boasts many original period details that define its distinctive elegance and classic character. Original parquet floors, a pass-through marble sink, lovely fireplace mantles, and other original features exude old-world charm throughout.
Located between Vanderbilt Avenue, aka Restaurant Row, and Carlton avenue, on a quiet street, the location can't be beaten. To begin with, the B and Q trains around the block at 7th Avenue and the 2/3 at Grand Army Plaza. Then, all the events are available at the Barclays Center and BAM within a few minutes of walking distance. Cross Flatbush avenue, and you are in Park Slope with all the 7th and 5th Avenue shops. The best part is the two-minute walk to Prospect Park. While enjoying this spacious home, living in a quiet and sublime neighborhood, you can still have that sense of city life surrounded by the best Brooklyn offers. And did I mention the extremely low taxes at $2,574 a year? The home is being sold AS-IS.
