Perfectly situated on an oversized 60 x 100 Lot surrounded by an enchanting white picket fence, 825 East 17th St is a breathtaking example of the uniquely beautiful Victorian homes of Ditmas Park. The lovingly landscaped front garden, with two vibrant Red Maples flanking the front path, welcome you to a deep, front porch where you can enjoy the outdoors while admiring the greenery and esplanade of East 17th Street. Wide, glass double doors with the original, elaborate hardware is your first indication of the stunning and exceptional craftsmanship showcased throughout the house. Herringbone, parquet floors, the delicate spindles of the staircase, the original pier mirror, pocket doors, solid oak wainscoting, coffered ceilings, stained glass and so much more, are enhanced by the recently replaced historic windows that flood the house with natural light and sun. The spacious living room has a wood burning fireplace and leads into the elegant dining room big enough for a table that seats 10. Off of the dining room is a cozy library with a convenient half bath and a door leading to a large deck that runs the length of the house, perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The huge eat in kitchen is truly a dream for anyone who loves to cook and entertain. Entirely custom finishes include tons of upper and lower cabin cabinetry, shelving and plate rack, granite countertops, two sinks, two dishwashers, an island with a heating drawer and sink, 6 burner Capital stove with double oven, Liebherr refrigerator, and Miele 2 burner induction cooktop. Off of the kitchen is another door leading to the back yard for al fresco grilling and dining and easy access to the driveway, one car garage and the ample side yards that add to the already abundant outdoor space!
On the second floor is a generous landing with four bedrooms, all with custom closets and oversized windows that fill the rooms with light. The huge, sun drenched Master can easily accommodate a King size bed, dressers and a seating area with room to spare. The renovated ensuite bath is shared with the adjacent bedroom and could easily be used as an office or walk-in closet to create an amazing Master Suite. The huge second bath has a door to the roof of the extension that could easily be decked to create an amazing balcony overlooking the backyard. On the third floor are an additional three, large rooms and an updated bath with the original clawfoot tub.
The completely finished basement is bonus additional living space with private access, a newly renovated eat-in-kitchen, rec room, sleeping room, full bath and laundry room.
Recent updates include split system AC, new roof, updated plumbing and electric.
