Grand Ditmas Park Victorian with wraparound porch seeks $3.8M

The standalone Victorian neighbors the house purchased by actress Michelle Williams in 2015.

The Albemarle Road house could stun with a few upgrades

An expansive standalone Victorian on a stretch of Albemarle Road
that the New York Times has
called
“one of the grandest residential streets in the whole
city” is looking for a new owner.

The 13,000-square-foot property at the corner of Rugby Road
shares a common border with the magnificent house
purchased by actress Michelle Williams
in 2015 that,
as of June 2018
, Williams was still in the process of
rehabbing.

From the looks of it, 1406 Albemarle Road could also use some
updating—drop ceilings be gone!—though the 6,000-square-foot
house still stuns with architectural details like original millwork
and two turrets that create rounded entertaining spaces and
bedrooms.

The six-bedroom property is currently set up as a legal
one-family and office space, providing two separate sets of
entrances. That office space is on the house’s first floor with
entrances off of its private driveway (that culminates in a
standalone two-car garage) and is only connected to the main
residence through a door in the house’s first floor library. The
main floor also consists of an eat-in kitchen, living room, dining
room, and powder room positioned around a central foyer.

The closed off eat-in kitchen connects to the house’s dining
room.

The upper two floors give way to six bedrooms, four bathrooms,
two terraces, a game room, and a walk-in cedar closet. The
unfinished basement covers the whole footprint of the house,
providing additional storage. It’s also where the home’s
laundry room is currently set up.

The property is
on the market with Joseph Baglio of Madison Estates
for $3.799
million.

A large bedroom takes advantage of the house’s unusual
shape.
