This stately Brooklyn Victorian is ready to be brought into the 21st century
When it comes to grand old Brooklyn Victorians, you'll rarely find anything as quintessential as this seven-bedroom, five-bathroom 1905 townhouse at 170 Stratford Road, just a few blocks away from where Michelle Williams recently snapped up a similar historic property.
First, there's the dramatic wraparound porch, as well as an indoor sitting area to soak up the sun when you don't feel like braving the elements:
The interiors look like they may need a some updates, but there's lots of room to work here once you get the seller's current furnishings out of the way. On the ground floor, there's a formal dining room, kitchen, and a living area that's currently set up as a home office (we'd personally ditch the carpet in there ASAP).
The kitchen looks to have been refreshed recently with new appliances, and we like the look of the old-school wooden cabinets, as well as the blue-and-white backsplash.
Upstairs, you'll find enough bedrooms to host an entire family reunion, including a master suite with attached bathroom (check out those rounded windows).
The upper floors also feature a huge living area, potentially useful as a home office, entertainment room, or children's play area depending on your needs.
The home also has a driveway with a two-car garage, and an unfinished basement with washers and dryers (yes, the listing notes plural washers and dryers). It'll be expensive to re-decorate a house this huge, but with bones this great, perhaps it's worth the $2.8 million ask?
