Situated on a landmarked Historic District block in Brooklyn’s Lefferts Manor, 140 Rutland Road is a beautifully renovated, classic single-family Brooklyn row house.  This property melds the old – parquet floors, unique carved fretwork, stained-glass windows – with the new: contemporary kitchen, bathrooms, and light fixtures; extravagant closet space; and all new mechanical systems, including central air conditioning. But more than that, this house offers an almost magical combination of a fresh, clean start with the charm of a warm and comfortable home.

On the parlor floor, the large, open kitchen features a Bertazonni range and an immense island. There is room for a breakfast table in the sunny south-facing bay window, as well as a full-sized table in the adjacent dining room. The living room has lovely stained-glass window panels toward the street and a working fireplace. A powder room has been artfully tucked into a nook off the entrance hallway. 

Upstairs are three bedrooms. There is a master suite with a walk-in closet and a large, bright bathroom featuring gray and white basket weave marble floor tiles and oversized wall tiles; a double vanity; and an oversized glass-enclosed shower. This floor also has two additional bedrooms, as well as a classically styled black-and-white hall bath with soaking tub and skylight.
 
The ground floor includes two gorgeous and sunny rooms, the larger one looking out onto tree-lined Rutland Road and the other overlooking the airy south-facing patio and garden.  There is also a laundry room/mud room extension and a full bath.  Use this floor for your family room…or set it up as a two-bedroom guest suite for overnight visitors.  There is a pleasant, fully finished cellar with new mechanicals below, offering lots of room for storage or additional recreation space.  The B/Q/S trains and entrance to world-class Prospect Park are just a few blocks to the west and the 2/5 trains are only slightly farther in the opposite direction.

About the neighborhood:  Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and the smaller Historic District within it referred to as Lefferts Manor, have an array of architecturally diverse homes, including Victorian, Neo-Renaissance, Romanesque Revival, Neo-Georgian, Federal, and Tudor – a far greater variety than one finds in typical brownstone Brooklyn. The Historic District, which is zoned for one-family homes, has a particularly active neighborhood association and friendly atmosphere. The block on which 140 Rutland Road is located prides itself on its spectacular annual block party and on its book group! 140 Rutland Road could be the house you have been waiting for -- restored beauties of this caliber are rarely available in this very special neighborhood

Additional features of this property include: B/Q Trains, Prospect Park & Amazing Amenities Easi, Super Sunny and Bright All Day, Flexible Layout Allows up to 5 Bedrooms, Central Heating and Cooling, Restored Facade and Incredible Curb Appeal, and Stunning Restored Historic Details.

Lefferts Gardens
Runs from Empire Boulevard to the north, Clarkson Avenue to the south, Ocean Avenue and Prospect Park to the west and Nostrand Avenue to the east.
Brooklyn’s bedroom community, Lefferts Gardens, and its historic district, Lefferts Manor, have an array of architecturally diverse homes. The quiet residential neighborhood of Lefferts has architecture ranging in style, including Victorian, Neo-Renaissance, Romanesque Revival, Neo-Georgian, Federal and Tudor – a far greater variety than one finds in typical brownstone Brooklyn. These two-story, three-story and four-story homes were built from 1890 to the 1920s, whereas most of the detached homes were built a bit later, towards the 1930s and 40s.
