Historic Two-Family Ditmas Park Charm w/Four-Car Parking A dazzling two-family house boasting four-car parking and enchanting early-19th century allure, 986 Ocean Avenue offers a serene Ditmas Park lifestyle with multi-generational living or income-generating potential. Previous owners have spent the last decade upgrading plumbing, electrical, and infrastructure while restoring old world details. Beautiful hardwood floors with intricate border inlays complement custom built-ins, chic wainscoting, and stained-glass accent windows.

Exterior features include a charming gambrel roof and blue siding façade, a lush front garden and fenced backyard, a dining patio, a shared driveway with two outdoor parking spots, and a detached two-car garage. The lower level of the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom owner’s triplex begins a welcoming foyer and a formal living room. The living boasts a wood-burning fireplace with a bold mantel and flows into spacious sun room.

On the opposite side of the foyer is a stunning formal dining room with beamed ceilings and access to a sun-splashed sitting room and a gut-renovated windowed kitchen equipped with sleek stone countertops, a white subway tile backsplash, custom cabinets, and high-end stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher. On the second level are a pair of king-size bedrooms with plenty of natural light, private closets, and shared access to a windowed full bathroom. The lower level has a laundry room with a washer/dryer, home office space, and a windowed fitness studio with an attached full bathroom and kitchenette.

The owner’s triplex has central A/C. The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom rental duplex has a private entrance with a paved walkway. The lower level of the duplex contains bright living and dining rooms, an open kitchen with a pantry and dishwasher, and a windowed full bathroom. A split-wing layout on the upper level ensures each bedroom is quiet and private.

Both feature walk-in closets and have access to a windowed full bathroom. 986 Ocean Avenue is nestled in the quiet Ditmas Park Historic District surrounded by beautiful period houses and lush front lawns. The house is a few blocks from all the restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops that line Cortelyou Road and Foster, Flatbush, and Coney Island Avenues. Kings Theatre, Brooklyn College, and Prospect Park are close by, and the 2/5/B/Q subway lines offer a simple commute to northern Brooklyn and Manhattan.
