This lovely 4-bedroom Dutch Colonial is perched above it all on one of the most desirable blocks in Bay Ridge. A gracious staircase leads from the sidewalk to the prettiest stone porch in the neighborhood. There's plenty of sunny space here for lounging and dining al fresco. On each end of the porch there are large custom wooden trellises that provide privacy from neighbors and beg for climbing roses or wisteria! The main floor of the house features a sunny living room where a picture window with a built-in bench faces the porch. The focal point of the room is an inglenook, anchored by a wood burning fireplace with a fun mid-century flourish-an uplit mantle! A set of handsome wooden benches with storage flank the fireplace. The dining room has a matching picture window that frames a large private, landscaped back yard and patio with plenty of space for more even outdoor entertaining and fun. The eat-in kitchen is big enough to accommodate the design dreams of the most demanding cook. Upstairs are four comfortable bedrooms, loads of closet space, two full bathrooms and a small covered terrace off one of the bedrooms that overlooks the garden. The hillside positioning allows this home to feature a private drive-in garage that leads to a large finished basement with a laundry room, half bath and lots of floor space for gaming, entertaining, media and home gym! Enjoy living above it all in this utterly charming, beautifully maintained house on the hill! The X27/X37 Express bus to Manhattan stops just two blocks away.
