A Restoration Dream

Grand home on Ocean Avenue in the Historic Landmark Section of Ditmas Park. Awaits a buyer ready to restore this magnificent home to its true glory. Built in 1899; designed by architect George Palliser.

According to the Landmarks Commission: “Two-story and attic residence; brick siding with stone lintels; full-height monumental templefront; Corinthian pilasters; pedimented tympanum with Palladian window; modillion blocks and dentil moldings in cornice; hip roof with pedimented dormers; curved one-story projecting bay in the center of front facade articulated by Ionic columns and topped by balustrade railing; segmental-arched doorway opening. Corinthian columns of temple front replaced by square piers; entrance altered. Colonial Revival, with a huge two-story portico and four square columns, along with a projecting rounded bay window on the first-floor porch, sheltered by the overhanging portico.”

This home is about 6,000 square feet and includes many original details, including four fireplaces — two wood-burning and two gas mantels. The original grand staircase features three different spindles types. Large stained glass windows flank the landing.
