As rare as it gets, welcome to 551 Rugby Road: a charming boutique three-unit condominium building within a quintessential historic Ditmas Park Victorian! Residence No. 2 at 551 Rugby boasts a sprawling two-floor layout: - Second floor w/ large private porch serves as the main level of the home. - Fully-finished basement serves as the accessory level of the home. - Exclusive ownership and rights to rear yard space, two parking spaces on the driveway AND the 2-car garage -- large enough to also house the owner's workshop! The main second floor contains 3-bedrooms, eat-in kitchen, large formal dining room, living room, laundry room, and 1 full bath. It features the same architectural features and layout configuration one would expect to find in any grand turn-of-the-twentieth century Victorian Flatbush home, but now with the contemporary conveniences of condominium living. Original parquet floors, pocket doors, hand-carved wainscoting, built-in tiger oak cabinets with leaded glass doors, and decorative fireplace are just some of the handsome period details the unit has to offer. The added advantages here however are that heating, hot water, gardening, routine maintenance, and many more typical homeowner-related expenses are all covered in common charges! All mechanical equipment was recently updated, and there is a brand new roof to boot! What's more, the separate basement level of the residence contains multiple handsomely-sized rooms with plenty of natural light and storage, 2 more full bathrooms, and an additional large laundry area. The basement holds a truly flexible floor plan that can be used in a variety of ways. With both internal and external entrances to the basement, this floor can be used as an extension of living and entertainment space for the owners, or as an in-law suite, or as a live-work space.
