Own a piece of American History, New York History, Brooklyn History which has been occupied by only 3 families!
The Wyckoff- Bennett- Mont Homestead is a pre-Revolutionary War Dutch farmhouse built in 1766. In the heart of the currently known, Madison section of Brooklyn and sitting on a rare half-acre lot, this historic ranch is its own living museum.
Straight off the Revolutionary War Trail, where George Washington marched up nearby Kings Highway, many soldiers would stop here, and you’ll still find their names etched in the original window panes.
Filled with an immense amount of original woodwork, detail, and hardwood floors, including the original country kitchen, exposed beams, cabinetry, hardware, fireplaces and much more.
As you approach the wide front porch, which is perfect for the hot summer nights, come into the expansive first floor through the grand foyer, with a split farm door separating the large living-room and parlor room (both with fireplaces), the family “music room”, and family den.
The country kitchen with vaulted ceilings and second story storage of nooks and crannies leads into the formal dining room. A rear split barn door leads to a private back patio for quiet enjoyment and open-air flow. A bathroom with shower and laundry room complete the main level
The second floor sleeping quarters has 4 bedrooms and a full bath, cast iron tub included.
Plenty of attic space and the enormous, brick-lined basement is great for extra storage.
One of the last privately owned Dutch-Colonial Homes in New York City which has been featured in numerous publications including the New York Times.
