Property description
Welcome to 298 Parkside Avenue, a charming and lovely single-family home in prime Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Built at the turn of the last century, the house is warm and welcoming, with a perfect blend of beautifully preserved original details and tasteful modern updates. Set back from the sidewalk, the house has a lovely landscaped front garden filled with lush plantings, and a wide front porch greets you as you come up the front steps. Enter the home through the original tiled vestibule, the perfect landing spot to take off your coat and shoes. Once inside, the large, open living room welcomes you, with its curved staircase on the one side and a decorative center fireplace and mantlepiece on the other. From the entry there is an unobstructed view straight through the separate dining room all the way to the kitchen and the backyard beyond. Each of the front facing windows has its own deep window seat, providing a cozy nook to read a book, a place to enjoy your morning coffee, or extra seating for family and friends. Just past the living room is the bright, windowed dining room, large enough to easily accommodate a table set for 12. Overhead is a beautiful, coffered ceiling with exposed wooden beams. Stunning original built-in leaded glass front cabinets line the far wall, and an original wooden dish rail wraps around the perimeter of the room, both providing a perfect place to showcase your favorite glassware, cookbooks, or art. Moving from the dining room into the kitchen is a custom paneled hallway, which, on one side tucks away a new powder room (complete with Toto wall-mounted commode, marble sink, and brass fixtures) and on the other side, double doors recess back into the wall to reveal a beautiful and thoughtfully designed butler's pantry. Here you will find extra deep storage drawers, a microwave shelf, and additional countertop space for prepping quick snacks or setting out a buffet spread for guests. Next is the brand-new and beautifully renovated chef's kitchen. Lit up by sunlight streaming through the custom sliding glass doors which lead to the backyard, it features a Bosch gas cooktop and wall oven with vented hood, a Fisher Paykel refrigerator, and a panel-front Bosch ultra-quiet dishwasher. The design is modern, yet respectful, using natural materials such as marble, soapstone and wood combined with pure white quartz countertop to withstand the toughest wear and tear. A workstation sink, touch on/off faucet, and Rejuvenation hardware complete the look. From the kitchen, walk out of the glass sliding doors and down a few steps into the quiet and private backyard, with lush plantings, a patio area for your BBQ and entertaining, and a grassy lawn area - the perfect place for practicing soccer goal kicks, doing your morning yoga, or to set out your picnic blanket and dine al fresco. The upper floor has three generously sized bedrooms off the center hallway. The primary bedroom is located at the front of the house and is flooded with sunlight that streams in through three large windows. This room easily fits a king-sized bedroom set, has generous closets as well as a Victorian era pass-thru dressing area (a secret passageway of sorts!), with an original sink and built-in closets. Each of the other two bedrooms is well proportioned for any number of flexible uses, each with great closets. The full bathroom off the center hall features an original claw foot tub and pedestal sink, with original porcelain tiles lining the walls and a large linen closet. A full-sized English basement on the lower floor has a new full-sized washer and dryer and built-in storage cabinets on two walls, the ideal place to house your crafting supplies or tools. There's also a finished room in the back which makes a perfect exercise room, work from home space, or crafting area. With existing plumbing ready in the adjacent room, this room can also easily be converted into a windowed guest suite. The large basement provides a ton of additional storage area or is easily finished to become a rec room/play area (bring your ping-pong table), or media room. There is a separate entry to this level from the front of the house and direct access to the backyard from the rear. The location is ideal: Just a block and a half to bucolic Prospect Park, five minutes to the Q subway at Parkside Avenue and the 2/5 subway at Winthrop Street, and a short walk to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect Park Zoo. Tribeca Pediatrics' latest office just opened right around the corner, and 298 Parkside is also central to all the shops and restaurants this vibrant neighborhood has to offer, such as Honey Badger, Parkside Pizza, Bonafini, Risbo, Awesome Brooklyn, and Greenlight Bookstore. Showings are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, including all Open House showings and will adhere to all COVID safety protocols. First Open House showings Saturday, May 15th and Sunday, May 16th. Call listing agent directly to schedule.
