Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I are both educators. We are both originally from North Carolina. I run a network of charter schools, and my wife does curriculum and professional development for a group of high schools for recent immigrants. We have two boys, ages 4 and 2. We are relaxed, easy-to-deal-with people.

Why the Owner Chose Flatbush - Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, NY, USA:
We moved to Ditmas Park to have the best of both worlds -- a suburb in the city.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ditmas Park is like no other neighborhood in the city. It has one of the largest collections of Victorian homes in the country. The neighborhood is great for walking and running, and there are many great restaurants and bars nearby. Our house is GREAT for kids. We have a large (60-inch) tv for movies, a piano, a front porch with a swing, a backyard with a great playset, an indoor gym with a fun indoor playset/swing. A school playground is a few blocks away, and Prospect Park is a short bus ride away.
