Sun-drenched brick Tudor in Windsor Terrace, lovingly restored and updated.
Walk through a gated native garden of witch hazel, sweet bay magnolia, and green hawthorn, up the bluestone stoop, to the arched wooden door of this 1939 Tudor.
You'll love the original mosaic tile in the vestibule, which has a spacious coat closet. Open the french door with original handforged brass hardware to the main living area, which features oak and walnut wood floors and windows, Modern Fan Company ceiling fans, a large living room, and a separate dining room with an unobstructed southeast view. There is a separate, windowed cherry and maple kitchen, with vintage Arts and Crafts tiles, Grohe fixtures, and a breakfast bar.
Off the kitchen, there is a sun-filled terrace, perfect for an herb garden, coffee, and cocktails.
Lit by a modern skylight, the upstairs features 3 bedrooms and a full bath. The master bedroom has two closets and a sun-filled view out to Coney Island. There are two additional bedrooms; one large and one small. The original Art Deco bathroom has restored mosaic floor tile, a Grohe faucet, handblown lighting, and a separate shower stall and tub. The hallway area has a full linen closet, as well as a small half closet with room for more storage and a ladder to the roof.
Downstairs, there's a refinished windowed English basement with two entrances, washer/dryer, and a windowed 1/2 bath. The basement is perfect for sleepovers, a drum set, and ping-pong. The back door opens to ground level.
Out back, there's a horticulturalist's garden of figs, raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants, species roses, lilacs, oriental lilies, and a large southern magnolia tree. There's a large patio area, which the owners use for al fresco dining.
The garage is large enough for a car, bikes, and storage. It's located at the end of a shared alleyway, perfect for learning how to bike ride.
There are new windows, a new stoop, new ironwork, very well maintained roof, new wiring, and a new hot water heater and boiler.
The house is three blocks to the F train Fort Hamilton Parkway subway stop and one block to the B67 bus, which runs from Kensington, through Park Slope, to Downtown Brooklyn.
District 15 schools, which include PS130 and the PS230 gifted and talented program.

Around the corner are neighborhood eateries Le Paddock, Brooklyn Commune, and the Adirondack, as well as Juicebox wines, Prospect Range performance space, and the Cynthia King Dance Company. Greenwood Cemetery is one block south.
