2 Family Victorian Ditmas Park West- This home is located in a prime location on one of the most bucolic blocks in the area. Built in 1899, this home needs lots of TLC to bring this hidden gem back to its original grandeur, but still holds some original details, including stained glass, parquet floors and some natural woodwork.
This long converted 2 family from a 1 has been in the same family for over 50 years and were just the 2nd to own this home. It is currently set up as an upper duplex and a 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor, but could easily be converted back to the 1 family of your dreams. There is a private drive with enough parking for 3 cars.
The home currently separates from the initial entry into a foyer area for each unit, the 1st floor offers a large living room, 2 bedrooms, bright and sunny separate dining room and a kitchen with steps to the backyard. The second floor unit has a spaciously laid out living room, dining room, large eat-in-kitchen and original bath with deep tub, separate shower, pedestal sink and stained glass window. There is also a half bath on the same floor en-suite to what is used as the Master Bedroom. The stairway continues up to an additional 3 rooms, walk-in cedar closet and huge storage area. The basement is unfinished and has a laundry area and all the storage space you always wished you had. With it’s high ceiling height it could be finished into even more usable space.
From summer nights on the huge front porch to family barbeques in the backyard, this home offers huge potential for those looking to put their own personal touch on turning this solid house into their dream home.
