Welcome home Ocean Avenue, a well-preserved landmark, Neo-Tudor/Bungalow home within the Ditmas Park Historic District. Erected in 1914 by Harry Grattan known as a builder of "artistic cottage houses", this home is part of a limited collection of Bungalow homes which are the most unusual homes within the Historic District. The main level of this magnificent home showcases an expansive living room featuring ornate African wood moldings, a wood-burning fireplace with decorative oak mantle and grand staircase. Toward the front of the home is the sunny, enclosed porch, perfect as a den, library or home office. Beyond the living room through the grotto-like, stone archway, is the formal dining room with 2nd fireplace, coffered ceiling and wainscoting, ideal for intimate dinners. The chic, galley kitchen is newly renovated and features graphite colored Corian counter tops, a sleek glass tile backsplash, white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. There is also, a newly appointed, full bathroom on this level. Beyond the dining room is the home's tranquil, solarium with oversized windows, overlooking a wonderful back yard retreat with mosaic tile, in-ground swimming pool and hot tub. The second level offers 4 bedrooms of generous proportion, one with a fireplace and cedar closet and another with an adjoining, tranquil, sitting room along with a full bath. The third level provides 2 additional bedrooms, a kitchenette and 3rd full bath. The full, English basement has been framed and roughed out with pool shower and partial bath in place, just awaiting the new owner's finishing touches. Recent upgrades include a new terra cotta tiled roof and gutters, new windows, new gas boiler and hot water heater, refinished floors and fresh carpeting. Impeccable millwork, 4 wood-burning fireplaces, 7 graceful stained glass windows and oak flooring lend to this home's abundant warmth and charm.
