Introducing 214 Malborough Road. Built in 1901, this breathtaking colonial revival was designed by Benjamin Dreisler, one of Brooklyns most prominent turn of the century architects. This sprawling Victorian home of almost 4,000 square feet boasts seven bedrooms, grand living and entertaining spaces, along with a fully finished basement. Rarely will you find a home with such rich architectural detail that has been so loving preserved and maintained for over a century. The trims, millwork and moldings are among the finest found in Prospect Park South. The homes beautifully carved double-door entryway features gorgeous leaded glass and opens into a stunning foyer with impressively high ceilings and pocket doors on either side. To the right sits an enormous living room featuring a fireplace and beautiful stained glass windows, a space perfect for entertaining and large gatherings. A stately sitting room with bay windows is situated to the left and leads into an enormous dining room with incredible coffered ceilings and is large enough to host large, banquet-style dinners. At the rear of the home is a spacious eat-in kitchen that offers views of the beautifully maintained backyard. The homes original elegant staircase leads to the private sleeping quarters. The second floor consists of the master bedroom with en suite bath, a large dressing room with two California closets, two guest bedrooms, and a beautifully updated full bath. All rooms are gracious in size and scale. The third floor has two more bedrooms, one of which spans the entire width of the home, another full bath, and an office that can also easily function as the seventh bedroom. Not included in the total square footage of the home is a fully finished basement which contains a home office, recreation area, and wet bar, and works as another great space for social gatherings. The Prospect Park South historic district remains one of New Yorks most noteworthy architectural marvels. Quiet tree lined streets with palatial single family homes make this neighborhood an oasis that feels like an extension of Prospect Park itself. 214 Marlborough Road is only three blocks away from the Parade Grounds and one block from the cafes, shops, and restaurants found along Cortelyou Road. The Q/B line at Beverly Road is less than a block away making transportation incredibly convenient. Homes of this caliber are a true rarity and should not be missed.
