Sipping iced tea in your favorite chair on the front porch, you'll need to remind yourself that you are still in New York City. The din of traffic and endless flurry of humanity are almost too faint to make out. Somewhere down the street, Roy Eldridge's trumpet is trading licks with Basie's piano. You lost yourself for a moment, didn't you?
Designed by prominent turn of the 20th century architect Benjamin Dreisler, 214 Marlborough Road is the perfect blend of understated elegance and historic grandeur. This 3906 square foot, seven bedroom residence features three sprawling levels, an array of grand living spaces, and a spacious finished basement. Carved double doors adorned with stunning leaded glass invite you into the home. Flanked by original pocket doors, the regal foyer sets the scene for your journey back in time. A large living room with a fireplace and stained glass windows allows for formal entertaining, while a classic parlour with gorgeous bay windows provides a setting for more frivolous diversions. Move through the large dining room under coffered ceilings, and into the spacious country kitchen with a breakfast nook that overlooks the private garden and stone patio.
The second floor consists of four spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms, while the third floor's three additional bedrooms can function as a sky-parlour or creative space, as well as a distance learning suite and home office. The fully-finished basement has something for all personalities: a bar, a workshop, recreational space, or exercise area. This unique residence is set on a 50 100 foot lot with a private driveway and detached garage.
Set on a bucolic block amidst the architecturally significant homes that make up the Prospect Park South historic district, 214 Marlborough Road truly 'rus in urbe,' the country in the city. This magnificent home is one block from the Q/B subways at Beverly Road, three blocks from the Parade Grounds adjacent to Prospect Park, and minutes from the wonderful shops, restaurants and amenities that make this neighborhood one of New York City's unique treasures.
