New York City is one of the last places known for its privacy, but this Brooklyn historic home promises seclusion from the urban landscape.
Just reduced to $2,590,000, 170 Stratford Rd. is a three-story Victorian located in the Prospect Park South historic district.
“The classic and spacious interior and front and back yards offer a suburban environment in the heart of Brooklyn,” New York Residence sales agent, Nate Darwish said.
Though spacious doesn’t mean much in NYC, the home is large by any standard with 4,000 square feet, seven bedrooms and three bathrooms — including a massive master suite with private bathroom.
There is also a basement, two-car garage and large den on the third floor - with a wrap-around patio and private driveway adding to the suburban feel of the home.
Built in 1905 by architect Benjamin Dreisler, who designed 16 homes in Prospect Park South, the house sits on a landscaped block and is surrounded by other impressive detached single-family residences.
The home still maintains some its historic characteristics, including ionic columns, corner turrets, mantels and arched entryways.
