An 115-Year-Old Brooklyn Home with a Delightful Countryside Feel Asks $3.5M

Decked out in charming historic details, it was built in 1905 and designed by renowned architects Slee & Bryson. Since then, the home has been upgraded with contemporary assets, creating the perfect balance of original details and modern conveniences. Any growing family could appreciate the plentiful rooms of this property since there are a total of six bedrooms, three baths, and three half-baths across nearly 5,000-square-feet of space.
From the quaint Colonial Revival-style façade to the abundant trees, this Brooklyn home will continuously have you forgetting your city surroundings. Bay windows, an oak-lined staircase, and a wood-burning fireplace all contribute to the home’s natural appeal. In the backyard oasis, a white picket fence elevates the charm-factor. It is the perfect spot to relax, entertain, and listen to the bird chirps or the occasional yellow taxi honk.
