Come home from a long day to relax on one of Brooklyn's very prettiest blocks! Inventory on the historic Shore Road is exceedingly rare, so don't throw away your shot at owning one of its best houses! Featuring endless possibilities spanning over 3000 interior square feet, four exposures, plentiful outdoor space, and direct sunset and water views, 8915 Shore Road just needs some customization to become your dream home for the ages.
The walkway to the house is surrounded by front lawn on either side and a large front patio off to the left before the front door. Enter the ample entry foyer and veer right into a spacious, sun-drenched corner living room with wood-burning fireplace and a full complement of the aforementioned views. Or, turn left and find yourself in a massive formal dining room, perfect for hosting large family dinners--you can also access the patio from this room. The enormous eat-in kitchen, which sits next to a family room, can be completely opened up or kept in its current configuration; the choices are yours (with architectural approval, of course!). Out back is a large shared patio and one of the house's many crown jewels: exclusive access to the award-winning Colonial Gardens, a fourteen-home secret courtyard with off-street oval walkway encircling interior gardens. Relax with a glass of wine or watch your children play without concern for street traffic...or anything else!
Upstairs, you'll find four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and access to a full attic with cedar closet. The master suite has a balcony with, yes, MORE direct water views! All of the bedrooms are spacious and can be easily personalized to your tastes. Lastly, the finished basement puts the bow on a truly splendid package. Included are a FUNCTIONAL sauna and steam shower, separate second kitchen (perfect if you choose to make this a guest suite or mother-in-law apartment, or even a kids playroom; it's currently predominantly used as the initial entertaining area for parties before guests drift upstairs for the main course), and wet bar!
Other goodies include an alarm system, three-zone sprinkler system, and expansive outdoor space--the front and side yards can be combined into deeply usable square footage, or you can keep as is with a planting garden off to the side. There's a one-car garage and room for FOUR cars in the driveway!
Iconic Bay Ridge is one of New York's most underappreciated treasures, and 8915 Shore Road is smack-dab in its heart. Directly across the street is Shore Road Park, complete with sporting fields, dog-friendly areas, summer spray showers, and approximately 2.5 miles of trails, trees and flower gardens. Special festivals and events like outdoor movies and Christmas tree lighting are commonplace. The Narrows Botanical Garden is a peaceful, volunteer-run 4.5 acre garden with native plants, flowers, trees, and walking paths. The nearby Belt Parkway Promenade is popular for biking, jogging, fishing, and leisurely strolls. Ditto the 69th Street Pier and surrounding Owl's Head Park, another truly underrated Brooklyn landmark.
Zip into the city on the X27 or X37 express buses--about 30 minutes to downtown--or trot over to the R train at 86th Street. Bustling 3rd Avenue boasts a wide array of excellent restaurants--including the renowned Tanoreen--and bars, and there's plenty of retail shopping for all of your needs, including Century 21 on 86th Street.
