Welcome home to 75 Buckingham Rd, a private pre-war oasis where old world hand-crafted details combine with modern living. In coveted Prospect Park South, where towering trees and sprawling lawns surround grand houses, preserving the historic feel of a thriving suburban neighborhood. Unique in its potential for use as a single family home, as well as a legally zoned office grandfathered in, this property has approx. 2,800 sq.ft with 4 beds, 2 full baths & 2 half baths, not including a large basement that abounds with potential for versatile use.
Built in the colonial revival style, a columned front porch welcomes guests into a formal entry, where flowing light gleams off wood floors. An adjoining grand parlor is warm and inviting, with exquisite pre-war French windows, a wood burning FP & coffered ceilings that showcase the unparalleled craftsmanship of a home built in 1910. Also found on the first floor are a half bath and two generous rooms, currently office space, with endless possibilities for use. A large chef's kitchen with casual dining could be ideally placed here, building on the charm of this period home, and creating an area to connect with loved ones.
The 2nd floor is a flowing space with a dining room off of the kitchen. Light pours in from 4 diamond patterned windows that hint at a Tudor influence, and recessed lighting shines down on original wainscoting and wood floors. A master bedroom offers French doors opening to a windowed ensuite bath w/jetted tub, and a huge walk-in closet provides ample space to create a 4th bedroom. The 3rd floor offers a sitting area, guest bath and two bedrooms. Lovely architectural details are reminders of the home's vintage, with paneled shaker doors and angled ceilings adding character. A basement area with approx. 915 sq.ft. adds to the already impressive amount of space, with uses limited only by the imagination.
Fenced and private, the backyard is fantastic for gathering with friends and family, with a large patio, Koi pond, and swim spa. The 62 108 corner lot property is 6,716 sq.ft. and includes a 2-car garage & 1-car covered parking, with a desirable location just a block from the Church Ave B&Q train stop and the wide-open spaces of Prospect Park. Whether your ambition is to breathe new life into a historic home or take advantage of the many possibilities of mixed-use zoning, this property is ready to fulfil your vision.
