A Prospect Park house designed in the style of a Swiss chalet has hit the market asking $2.3 million. The 2.5-story property at 100 Rugby Road was built by Dean Alvord, the developer who created the neighborhood now known as Prospect Park South, and dates to 1900.
The grand homes of what is sometimes called “Victorian Flatbush,” do not trade often. Last year, a $2 million sale was the most expensive the neighborhood has ever seen, according to published reports. The 100 Rugby home could potentially break that record.
The Corcoran Group’s Laura Rozos has the listing, which describes the seven-bedroom, three-bathroom house as combining “surprising country charm with understated Victorian elegance.” The home was gut renovated in 2002, according to Curbed.
The property also boasts parquet floors, a deck and garden as well as a two-car garage, according to the listing, Curbed said. It was designed by John Petit, who was also behind the Japanese House building just around the corner, according to the website. [Curbed] – Hiten Samtani
