It's hard to decide what to drool over first in this three-story house at 520 Argyle Rd. in Ditmas Park, née Victorian Flatbush. Listed for $2,785,000, the 4,025-square-foot Victorian has five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The house sold for $1,379,000 back in 2013, records show, and it has undergone a significant renovation since. 

The light-filled parlor floor has an open plan living and dining room, a unique Delft-tiled fireplace, and wood floors with inlaid design, as well as stained glass windows and pocket doors. The kitchen has a custom-poured concrete island, Carrera marble counters, radiant-heat flooring, and appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero. 

The second floor has two equally-sized queen bedrooms and a full bathroom to serve them. Then there's the master bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity. The master suite also has an enviable dressing room. 

The third floor houses the "family room," a large space for entertaining, with a 19-foot cathedral ceiling and a custom bar outfitted with a dishwasher, a bar sink, a Sub-zero wine refrigerator, and an ice machine. This floor also has two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The bathroom has two skylights, a claw-foot tub, and a waterfall shower.  

Outside, you'll find the in-ground, heated, saltwater pool with an automatic safety cover. There's also a cabana/studio with a collapsible glass wall, and a patch of grass. You can cool off inside with central air.

Nearby Cortelyou Road is bustling with restaurants and cafes, and the B and the Q trains are three blocks away at Newkirk Avenue.
