The house offers flexibility in terms of layout and use. 


If you're in the market for a big old house with character near Prospect Park in Brooklyn (where you can also collect rent and park your car) 365 Parkside Ave. could be your type of place. Listed for $1,875,000, the grand house, currently configured as a two family, measures 20 feet by 58 feet, and was built in 1901. 

Located in the "Doctor's Row" section of Prospect Lefferts Gardens, the townhouse has lots or original details including decorative fireplaces, oak parquet floors, crown moldings, and even a separate "doctor's" door. 

The house has a tiled mudroom with a closet, and stairs lead up to the large living room, which features a decorative fireplace, high coffered ceiling, and raised panel wainscotting and a pantry. 

A large dining room leads to a windowed eat-in kitchen. 

The kitchen has terracotta tile, a good amount of cabinet space, and butcher block and tiled countertops. A washer and dryer and powder room are on this floor as well. 

Also off the dining room is a wooden deck. 

The bedrooms are one flight up. The large master bedroom has a decorative fireplace, renovated en suite bath, and large closet. 

Two other bedrooms have walk-in closets. 

A rental studio apartment with an open floor plan is on the garden level. It has partial access to the back yard. 

The Q train is two blocks away at Parkside Avenue, and the 2 and the 5 are a few blocks west at Winthrop Street. Prospect Park is also close, as are shopping and eating options along Flatbush, Parkside, and Bedford Avenues.
